The a hush falls over the Meeting Tent as the Şefleri Konseyi [Council of Chiefs] and Town Council of Västervik begin to page through the precious books looking for hidden nuggets of truth. Şef Maviateş [Chief Bluefire] summons one of the apprentices who begins to record page numbers of important passages. The Elder Chief of the Orcs and Mayor of Västervik sit on a pair of cushions in the corner discussing something heatedly over a rich smelling roast.
After a few hours of study and conversation they Elder again calls the meeting to order, "Arkadaş [friends], you have indeed brought us a great treasure, but out difficulties are still many. Very few of my people can write in the script of your Ortak Dil [Common Tongue]."
The Mayor continues, "Only myself, Lansidel the shopkeeper and Kjorn the Tavernkeeper can write well enough to be of help, so we will be of little help copying these texts. Your suggestion to send out messengers is an inspired one, but all of our ships are fishing vessels. They do not have the keels for the open ocean or the holds for the long journeys it will take to reach any of the Great Ports to the South."
"Şef Siyahdalga [Cheif Black Wave] and his Klan have a dozen fast longships, but the Kuzey Birleşik Klanlar [United Clans of the North] possess no other warships. We have wood and iron aplenty now, but no water in which to launch ships. It will take some time to begin construction of a fleet at Västervik. We have little to work with and less time, but these tomes will give direction to our efforts and purpose to our warriors. We will send half of Şef Siyahdalga's [Cheif Black Wave] longships South immediately with messengers for the Great Ports. One longship will be yours that you may find the other Lighthouses and the Bastion out in the Forræderiske Øer [Forbidden Isles], the rest will patrol the harbor of Västervik and scout Forræderiske Øer for Buz Canavar [Frost Troll] raids."
The Mayor's face is grim, "The townspeople will not welcome the Orcs into our midst, but I agree that we need their warships. Find those Lighthouse quickly, give them signs of hope before we tear ourselves apart in fear."
