Tonight the Road into town was blocked by a small band of Orcs demanding Tribute of Shinies & Cider from the Patrons of Goodman's Rune Library. The most outspoken Orc, Mr. Parfu, was finally removed from the fort after consuming large amounts of alcohol brought by Tazar of ODE. The quality of the Spirits put Mr. Parfu in to a sleepy stupor and he was led away to sleep it off on the roof of the library. Unfortunately the reason for his blockade was not devulged leaving questions as to the intent of the Orcs to linger on the minds of those who had to give up valuables to pass through the wooden road block. It is indeed dangerous times. It has been determined that the wood came from Hendall of SCT & the pack Llama was brought by Janel, the Mayor of Yew, so it could all just be a big publicity stunt for the City of Yew. We shall see.
