The Price of Generosity
The Red Flag Army
The Red Flag Army was once a company in the Orc Lord’s grand army in the Frozen North. Lead by the ambitious and bloodthirsty General Ghuul, it enjoyed a relatively prestigious position in the army as deadly and strong, thanks to the battle prowess granted to them by the red flag the general possessed.
Ghuul grew more and more frustrated with the Orc Lord’s decisions for military targets, and rebelled. She called on her men to follow her in bloody pillaging instead of the Orc Lord’s meticulous planning, and those bold and brash enough to listen followed her to take the dwarvish mining outpost of Ironvale.
The army met its end when the party captured the sacked Scarsdale Fortress- it attacked the fortress with wave after wave, but the party of heroes along with allied forced from the elves and dwarves repelled all of its attempts to retake the fortress. The army was fought to a stalemate long enough that the party was able to fly directly to General Ghuul on a war eagle and assassinate her. Leaderless and no longer under the red flag’s blessing, they scattered and were routed. Additionally, the Stone Thief appeared and swallowed a number of the army up as they were routed.
