Disclaimer: This is a brief benign avocational fiction.
How's Grishnakt know so much, the White Hand's fools ask? They should wonder how they know so little! I use my ears and my wits and my chance; I'll sieze it now, when Ugluk's left the prisoners unguarded. One of them bears Lugburz' lost treasure, and I've a thought or two for what I might do with it myself. I was spawned an orc, but I can do better than slave; even the Great Eye and his Nazgul shall have to reckon with me, when I get that bauble off these little rats and into my hand.
