As the outriders keeps a strong guard with the Duchess at the bloody field before the cave entrance the rest of the outriders search the surrounding land carefully. Every one of the pits is thoroughly checked. Every stone is turned and every bush parted to find any sign of a second entrance to the cave…..

The remaining knights of Tuornen, Tuare, KoH and the MOC are sett to try to remove the rockslide covering the cave mouth.   
First the knights have high hopes to quickly remove the rubble, but they soon find that the rockslide was more extensive the first imagined. And hope lift again as a clearing is made high under the cave ceiling the knight take as moments to listen for sounds…..

There is no way in. Clearing the rocks would take days, if not more. But you've taken control of the surface, and there are no more attacks.

The Duchess mounts up with the knights to join in the search for a back-door or other hiden way into the cave.

"I hesitate to call the hag's actions the blessings of Haelyn, but look at the results.  Praise Haelyn, we're going to get out of here yet!"

Guy leads the men over the bodies of the Orogs through the winding passages.  He sees a light ahead.

"Look there, that could be our way out, onward men, onward!"

The men rush forward, hoping that ahead is an exit to this mountain of death.  As they get closer they see...........

There are probably a few severely injured orogs to be had; but they are notoriously difficult to get anything out of.

The men, save Braedonnal, looks completely confused, but follow your lead. Twenty orog warriors lie dead in the tunnel, chocked and burned by the hag's magic. You press on, initially unsure as to what direction to take through the tunnels, but Braedonnal's keen senses soon leads to a camouflaged exit below a high cliff overlooking a swift stream. You are outside!

In the distance you hear outriders chasing down orogs

The Knights gather their dead, and perform the appropriate rituals, aiding in that act for the other factions if necessary.

You are eventually reunited with the Duchess and her force; although there are still groups of orogs loose above and below ground, their power in the province has been broken for the foreseeable future. A strong local garrison and/or periodic patrols should the keep the situation that way - indefinitely.

The guild(s) can now start looking gold in earnest.

Feel free to continue talking, but the main part of the adventure has ended.

Your Grace,

There is considerable lawlessness in Tuoren.  I'm glad I was able to help you put these Orogs down.  I must return to Endier now.  I'll leave a couple of Knights here to oversee the training.

The Duchess gathers the forces and assign tasks to secure the land and chase down the orogs.

As soon as Tuar is back in command the Duchess formally welcomes the General and publicly state her priorities to him.
"Our General must Secure Our lands, and see to the Decimation of any orog chiefs,
and their magicians and clergy.

It is Our will that all the lands of Tuornen are brought under the control of law,
justices and good. All for the prosperity, and freedom of the nobility and people of Turonene."
