PostSubject: Shoring Up the Holes   Sun Apr 15, 2012 2:14 pm

Malan sat in the laboratory that was part of his office. Magical texts and scrolls were spread about over the large ironwood desk in front of him. The candles, brand new when the research began, now sat low in the candelabra upon the desk.

The wizard didn't know how the orcs had arrived to Krynn. But the bigger question on his mind was...

How had the Tower not detected it?

The magic involved to move creatures en masse from one plane to another would have been considerable. But the question, while troubling, was moot. The orcs were here now. And while they were dangerous in numbers they would die just like any other creature in Krynn.

The demons on the other hand were a different story.

They could die and, as Malan had found, were suseptable to necromantic magic if the spell were powerful enough. He had found Wail of the Banshee to be rather effective when dealing with them. But when combined with the orc hordes, the warriors of Krynn were dangerously close to being overwhelmed in battle.

The portals were the key to dealing with the orcs' demons. They were vulnerable to magic and would collapse when hit with a fireball or an ice storm. The portals themselves reached beyond the Abyss itself to unleash these demons into the world.

Malan rubbed the sleep from his eyes and opened another old tome. It was one of his father's old books on conjuration. Perhaps he could find something in there to reverse the flow of the portals and instead of bringing demons into Krynn, he could draw them back to where ever they came from.

Time would tell if this research proved fruitful.
