First Encounter

Legolas knew all about yrch in theory. How tall, how broad, how unlike an elf an orc was. But, even so, the reality still took him by surprise for a moment when they came into view.

Some strode noisily, some shuffled, others walked with a swagger – their body language was of those who thought themselves either alone for miles, or invincible. They talked amongst themselves with no care for concealment.

How could they be so careless when they walked in the forest of the elves?

He loosed the arrow. There was an orc who would never be so cocksure again.
