Ogres of Ogres Pass

Ogres Army

Description:
Bio:

Eight years ago a secret pact was made between Father Tarka and
the ogre leader Master Slayer. An agreement that insured a regular and
steady flow of supplies for trade and a promise to exempt the town of
Baca from ore and ogre raids. Since then, Baca has prospered, Father
Tarka and his fellow co-conspirators have grown rich and the ogres
strong. Approximately every five months, a band of 30 ores with pack
animals and 4-12 ogres make their rendezvous at Baca to trade loot and
furs for much needed essentials, like grains, flour, rope, fabric, alcohol,
cattle, tools, and weapons. The weapons are especially important even if
they are generally of poor quality. After the exchange is made under the
cloak of darkness and secluded away from the unsuspecting town folk,
the caravan carefully makes its way through the Arian forest and past
Fort Bext to their stronghold at the Ogre Pass. Three times now the
mercenaries of Fort Bext have discovered and routed their caravans in
the last two years. However, the soldiers believe the contraband is being
supplied outside the Timiro Kingdom across the river between Forts
Brandt and Hilde.
In addition to the small caravan, once a year a large caravan also
pays a visit to Baca. The time of year is intentionally varied and often
reflects troop movements and the severity of their needs. Twenty to
thirty covered wagons pulled by horse and oxen and another 20 pack
animals loaded up with the usual staples. A total of 60 ores man the
wagons and no less than 20 ogres supervise the operation. Often one or
two of the ogres is a second or third level wizard, witch or warlock to
supplement their firepower.
Thus far, their pilgrimage to Baca has remained a secret. A secret
that has cost the lives of many a good man, either at the hands of the
ogres or Father Tarka and the Baca town council. The stakes are far too
high to take chances and witnesses or the nosey are quickly hunted
down and liquidated.
