On the 31th day of Albsreign, 14 days short of the Winter Solstice, a orcish longship beached on Erroun’s shore. 2 days march inland they struck at the village of Norbrook. The orcs had come in unusually large numbers overwhelming the local militia quickly and preventing the lighting of the signal fires. The town was quickly sacked and many of the local townspeople were carted away. A country estate of house Mar on the outskirts of town was also struck by the raiders. The knights of Lady Cassandra Mar’s retinue were slaughtered after what appears to have been a drawn out battle. By the time the local knight and his men-at-arms heard of the attack on Norbrook and were able to respond, the estate had been looted and Lady Cassandra abducted.
