Using the veil spell, the Band of the Wolf infiltrate the Ogre Magi Ox Clan Stronghold of Wolgor Wong in the snowy Southern Forested Hills. As they walk around the armies, they see that the place is undergoing a renovation using the labor force of the 100 Quikasa Gnolls and 100 Pokku Goblins. The banners of Wolgor Wong and Kou Yun are prominent and Kou Yun’s band of orcs and other humanoids have privileges and are not working. The works include a new stronghold’s wooden wall that extendes the area of the stronghold to the size of a small city and buildings that are been upgraded for huge and gargantuan sized creatures. They see what is happening, Wolgor Wong has increase the size of many ogre magi to gain their loyalty. They are bigger and stronger. Ogre crafters craft new weapons and armors for the recently enlarged leaders.
Using detect magic and spellcraft the Band of the Wolf explore for hours the areas of the stronghold that have more magic and magic items. They also discover that the servants are gathering rocks from underground caves that are located bellow the stronghold.
The ogre magi are gatering around a small pool with three monolits. Raizak recognize the design and markings as the one he saw on the old books of Kaminaggi. Wolgor Wong appears and declares his victory over the Village of Nimshi as he presents the new enlarged Kou Yun! Not only the dangerous ogre is enlarged but it’s revealed that he is a tiger men! (weretiger) and Wolgor Wong is sending him to kill the leader of the Village of the Tiger Men and force the weretigers to march against Nimshi as their allies!
Wolgor Wong retires to his underconstruction house under the constant chanting of his followers " Wolgor! Wolgor! Wolgor! " and the Band follows, too. Raizak cast a improved invisibility spell on Daero Maiavel and Yoshirou who enter the house inconspicuous.
Inside, an enlarged Wolgor speaks with his closest people; 5 ogres and a strange devilish beast. He is preparing to march against the Village of Nismhi. When he removes his thick cape, Maiavel sees the scroll (the size of a medium sized rug) on his belt and the medium sized jar of the demon blood hanging from a rope on his neck. He and his brother approach silently the ogre to steal the objects while Yoshirou is keeping an eye on everything.
Wolgor feels Daero’s hand trying to move the scroll from his belt and casts defensively a Dispel Magic spell that removes both brother’s disguise and invisibility. The battle has started and as Wolgor shutouts for his guards, Yoshirou uses the Messenger spell casted by Raizak earlier to call for reinforcements.
The Band enters the house as ‘fellow ogres’ and see Wolgor’s guards attacking the shadow elves. This allows them to attack by surprise as the ogre magi doesn’t expect them to be outsiders.
Raizak uses a potion and a combination of magic items to bluff the soldiers not to enter yet. He has to keep talking to them outside of the house: and army of 50 ogre magi of sized large, huge and gargatuan. " Ungh! " With growing numbers of gnolls and goblins addying up.
The battle inside the house is a complex one as constant casting and countercasting is been perform by the combatants. At one moment the strongest of the members of the Band attack Woldor with all their strongest attacks only to discover that under his tick hides and clothes he has casted an Iron Body spell and now resists many of the attacks made.
The recently enlarge and raging Kou Yun moves in front of the rest of the army and enters the house without listening to Raizak ( who in his wisdom moves out of his way ) He takes Frutumal with one hand and uses it as a throwing weapon against Troyus. Frutumal and Dio use spells to stop him for a while. Raizak enters and closes the door casting a Hold Monster spell on the ugly bastard. This magic only works for a while as Wolgor Wong dispels some of the spells and moves to attack. Daero is able to steal the scroll and pass it to his brother. The battle intensifies with Kou Yun atacking the Band and the rest of the Ogres trying to tear down the door.
Black Scrolls of Ochalea and the The Blood of the Demon God are still inside the house and the Band of the Wolf know that it will only be a matter of time before the army closes their ranks around them even if it takes them to tear down their master’s house.
" How will the Band of the Wolf complete the mission? Will they survive? Will the items be retrieved? Will Kou Yun be stopped before he conquers the Tiger Men and uses them as pawns in this ogre magi feast of fear? " …. we will find out in our next chapter.
