Well, I had to brush up on my Orcish, but it wasn't too bad.
Urpurk was forced to dig rocks all day and night (blackrock) and put it in pack horses for the "mean oomie".
The mean oomie put a stinky cloth over his eyes and took him from his orc fort, he said it was in Malas and he missed his friends there. When asked about Captain Jenkins, he said he was the "brave oomie" that clomped the "mean oomie". Jenkins scared him and he ran off.
The next step was finding the correct Orc Fort in Malas (Malz Uz). Nicholas the Old and I found it and spoke to Fere Cloam. She (?) said that Urpurk was taken, and that a "mean oomie with a slasha" came and took prisoners from there.
The interesting thing was that Fere said "dey comz lookinz likz orc, dey foolz uz goodz!"
She even mentioned that they talked like orcs as well, then they put the stinky rags over everyone's eyes and took Urpurk and the others.
We shall continue to look for the other missing orcs, and this other band of orcs with the "mean oomie".
I found Urpurk in Britain and mentioned blackrock.
Urpurk: Uz digz rockz putz inz pack horsez forz Meanz oomie. Workz allz Munn anz Nighz!
I then asked about the meanz oomie.
Urpurk: Im putz stinki clothz ober eyz, en teke uz gonz frmz Orc Fort.
I asked him about his Orc Fort.
Urpurk: Me cumz frmz Orc Fortz in Malaz.
Urpurk: Iz enz Malz Uz mizziez itz. Orc frienz der.
Zanthes and I - hoping to locate additional information - visited the Orc Fort that lies north of Luna. There we found Fere Cloam.
I asked about Urpurk.
Fere: Urpurk gone! Meanz oomie wid slasha comez takz prizonorz! Lat seez im?
Then about the meanz oomie.
Fere: Dey comz lookinz likz Orc dey foolz uz goodz!
I asked how they were foolzed.
Fere: Dey eben talkz Orc! Dey putz stinki ragz ober eyez en takz Urpuk en otherz gonz!
We weren't able to find anything more than Nicholas and Magdalena did. Though as Magdalena mentioned, it stands to reason that we may need to search for additional captured Orcs as well as a possible band of "renegade" Orcs lead by this "meanz oomie."
I went back to Urpurk and mentioned the pack horse caravan.
Urpurk: Wuz takinz rockz inz packz wid oomie, Man skeered Oomie, im runz offz.
The skeered oomie was scared off by Jenkins.
Urpurk: Oomie naym Captz Jenkinz resuzed uz!
Whom he apparently holds in high regard.
Urpurk: Im brave oomie! Im clomp mean oomie!
There is definitely more to discover. I hope others help you lot!
You should be able to find the location of the mine by the end of it.
I've been trying to find my way in this chain as well.. I'm also running into brick wall at the orc fort with Fere Cloam.
** when asking urpurk about the mines he give the following clue...(translated) no one knows where the mine is, we went through caves and then past minoc.
I wish I spoke orc...seppo could you give me your dictionary on orc
I enlisted the help of the Illustrious Steve, Scout Extraordinare, in search of this mine. The mountains both S/W and North of Minoc (mines and far-north, too) and have been swept with no trace of the camp. One would assume that the mine is near or in a mountain, but I suppose you can't be too certain.
Steve also found a hole near the mountains in Trammel, but he assumed that was an ant hole. He's headed back to double-check.
[Edit: Steve is rather embarrassed, but he was forced to admit that he fell down said hole in Trammel and it is, indeed, an ant hole.]
I think its T2a In fel cuz I found orc guardians and saw orc mining carts and a path blocked by a gate
Avex mentioned an area in the Lost Lands, Felucca. He escorted Steve there. Picture below.
It is at the following coordinates: 73*44'S 11*15'E
There are Orc Guardians (named Filge and Wakgut), black crystals, ore carts, etc. The whole area is blocked off. The gate there mentions something about a treasure guardian.
There is also "A Hired Mercenary" nearby.
I'm not 100% convinced that this is the place...but it's all anyone has been able to find so far.
I made it into the fort....nothing there...killed the orc's nothing on the orcs ...ther is a tower back there but thats about it!
That appears to be the right spot. There is an old Blackrock mining area near there, if I remember correctly.
so what do we do now?
We wait for a yay, nay or MAYYYYbe from the EMs.
I hope its the right place!
Yes, it is the right place. There was supposed to be a guard there that you could talk with but he seems to have poofed for some reason. Also, you are not supposed to be able to get past the gates at this point. Sneaky players - thought I had tested it thoroughly!
No idea how they teleported in, but I know they couldn't get out once they did! There's a rock ledge to the left of the gate that might have helped them get in, maybe a two-step teleport?
Yeah, the orc up front not wandering off would have helped.
Steve would like to know where his "I Found the Blackrock Mine but All I Got was This Fancy Shirt" shirt is.
Fere Cloam at malas outpost has vanished too.
Sorry, but we are facing technical problems.
I was curious, too...was Fere supposed to offer more information? She didn't seem like she helped much - basically repeated what Urpurk said except for the added fact that the people who captured them looked like and spoke Orc.
I was able to get in and kill the guardians and teleport back out with no problem...next time seppo just page me and i'll test it for you....does it mean I win? lol
Steve checked out the camp again. The mercenary is now inside the walls, still no guard outside. Was curious to see, wasn't sure if you'd been able to fix it yet.
Are you still able to teleport in?
Tried for several minutes from multiple locations/targets...can't seem to.
It is still possible to teleport in.
Steve would like to know how. Steve tried!
I feel like I am fixing the roof of my Grandma's house. Any more leaks? If you find them just PM them to me on here please.
I hope you don't fix your grandma's roof by stacking crates on it!
Couldn't send a PM, I've sent a message through the Golden Brew site instead.
Okie! Hole #143 filled! I think we can resume with the normal program now... unless there is a hole #144.
I shall be testing this here in awhile!
You might have prevented our teleporting in. But Gideon forgot to seal the Main Gate.
Message Delivered to the Steps of Castle Britannia.
The gate was locked before and when you tried to open it, it said something about needing the power of the treasure guardians.
I had Steve the Scout (Extraordinare) take another look and it remains open after Nicholas' visit.
