The Union has been invaded by the largest group of Orcs seen in a very long time. The first skirmish in the war took place on the left flank. What the Orc chargers lacked in variety and tactics they made up for in rage and power. Despite some valiant sacrifices from the defenders the Orcs broke through the defensive line and the Union’s left flank is in trouble allowing the Orc to begin encircling the main force and threaten the homesteads and villages of the Union.
Of particular note Sergeant Kip-Kip’s squad at the core of the fight was annihilated to a man. Nearby survivors have reported of a brave dwarf’s final sacrifice bringing two attacking orcs with him.
