maybe the orc's have made a pact with a fiendish dire catfish in the lake. and have agreed to feed it the bodies of some of the dead.
Help me defend a pass.
BardStephenFox said:They might swim it. Or just walk it through the lake. The Druid has access to Water Breathing. At this point you are counting on them to forget that. Even if they have to hang out and wait a day so the Druid can prepare the proper spells, it is quite possible that they will choose that rather than assault a heavily fortified position. You might be able to dissuade them if the environment of the lake is hostile enough.

... wait, that's not what you're talking about is it?
alsih2o said:In my campaign the players have recently passed between 2 large lakes with a strip of land 1/4 mile wide between them. This strip of land rises on both sides of the lakes and is about 2 miles long.
When they try to come back they will find that and orc lieutenant and his 49 orc warriors have been left to dig in and defend this pass. They have the services of 1 troll and 2 ogres.
The orc lieutenant is smart (int 16) and has 9 ranks in siege engineer/sapper. He has had 6 days to dig in and make sure noone comes from the other side of the lakes.

Narfellus said:alsih20, what is your ultimate goal for this little scenario? Do you want your party to find a way to DEFEAT the enemies guarding the lake exit, or to find a way to sneak past them and continue on?
