    A few ideas from things we know

    Big Bob
    So they probly not in trammel but somewhere humans are. I know almost nothing of SA but from what I see theres no humans there.

    I must admit this line confuses me a bit. Is he useing the royal "we" when he says we dug out a secret place along time ago. As he then says that the new orcs told him about it. This is where Big Bob must be makeing for and we need to find. As its probly there place of prodution too.

    Talking this evening we came up with some crazy ideas some around Mericles. Just a few reasons we thought of Mericles was he had dealings with orcs with the seed pods. He also used communication devices (which we stole and Hannah used to contact Dorian). Mericles was also into gate technology. The handwriting in the books too have similarites with Mericles handwriting. He also used the libary at Exodus as we found one of his notes to aid his memory at Exodus.

    1. Could we check in some way to ensure Mericles is dead dead, (you can never trust necromancers to stay dead). After all we still have Casca rotting away, surly there would be something left of Mericles to help eliminate him.

    2. Could Mericles or an allie of his be the link between the orcs and the Juka?

    3. Could there be a clue in Exodus?

    4. The orcs need power crystals could that be the link, as Mericles had used them in his communication device?

    Another thought was Sanctuary as we have Orc's, Juka and evil/dark elves in there. This would take a large group to investigate it fully to see if there is any clues there too.

    It's probably nothing to do with it, but didn't orcs originally used to spawn in Mistas?
    Along with Ogre Lords.

    Then the Juka came along and replaced them without any explanation.

    In the library in Castle British there is a analysis of the handwriting (being there for some days now). It says that the handwriting of the orders is NOT Mericles´ but similar, like from someone that learned from the same teacher.

    One school-buddy we know of is the Alchemist that did the research into the seed pod "fertilizer". Might be worth a try to compare his message (still in Umbra last time I checked) to the orders or asking him about other school-buddies, maybe with a faible for technology?

    Spent a little while exploring Exodus' lair today, didn't spot anything that looks relevant to the current events (although meleeing Exodus Minions is interesting. Bring plenty of bandages and dodge about a lot....).

    Also had a look in the 'library' annex of Blackthorn's Ilshenar base, again didn't find anything.

    Did you check the bookshelves or just alt-ctrl ?

    Had a look through most - can't guarantee I did all of them, sometimes had a few too many golems trying to beat me up so I may have missed one ;)

    A copy of his school report has been delivered to see if Mericles handwriting is similar to his head masters. Also a copy of the Alchemists handwriting is being compared too. Nathan asked Fynn about it last night and we are hopeing to get the results soon.

    Thanks Aurelius, looks like we will need to gather in force to investigate Sanctuary.

    Another random thought I had whilst thinking of the Juka attracking the Meer village was if I recall correctly we recently cleared the area near there and went into the cave north of the village. I can remember there being a skeletal dragon in the back section of the cave, but on this occassion there was loads of dragons too. Might be worth checking that cave out as it could be our dragon connection. Is it possible the new orc cave is through there and the Meer are way too close for comfort.

    *looks round for another straw*
