CCA: An old ranger, Janner, whose son was killed in the raid offers to track the orks and lead the party to the ork’s lair. The party follows him and enters the ork lair. After a series of grueling fights in the ork’s lair against an allied bugbear and kobold, pet giant lizards, ferrets, and spiders as well as the orks themselves, narrowly defeat them. They leave the ork females and children alive, and rescue the priest, Aralic . Keomak contracted filth fever from falling into a pit trap and getting injured by the spikes at the bottom. Korgul, Grace, Keomak, and Zazenna escort the priest back to Stallanford, so he can perform the ritual before it is too late and protect him as he does it. Aelar, who learned of a dark priest of Orcus in the area, had followed the party to the ork lair. He, Seluku, Tjin, and Kairon find a secret door in the lair and go further down into an ancient temple, that was once of Pelor, but now is filled with vermin and undead. They fight the undead, including zombies, skeletons, and a ghoul who was once a priest of Pelor. After slaying the ghoul, they find amulets of holy power. They make their way to the Orcus priest, who is performing a foul ritual over a slain unknown man, and defeat him and his undead minions. They find a letter warning a wizard by the name of Kavorquian.
