[Sellswords] Battle Report: The Tower of Mudagog

Today I played the ninth and last scenario of my Solo campaign of "Sellswords & Spellslingers". The expert scenario was ispired, with some minor changes, from the rulebook: Tower of the Necromancer pg48.

The PCs must deal with an orc shaman terrorizing the area and ruling the ruined town of Arnalos.

Mudagog was nervous, his explorers gave to him bad news, the damned purple sorcerer and his minions have crossed the river and were getting closer to Arnalos. The Purple Sorcer must be crazy, how he could dare how could he dare to face him in his domain overflowing with greenskins! This time he had dared too much, and he would paid for his recklessness with his life! However, Mudagog was still anxious, and he didn't dare to admit, not even to himself, that he feared the Purple Sorcerer.
Then an orc archer on a ruined tower shouted alarmed. The Purple Sorcerer was there!
Mudagog sighed taking courage: the Purple Sorcers is just a man and I have an army at my command. The he spoke: "Let the fools come! They will know soon that challeging Mudagog is a sure and fast way to die young!"
However his words did not sound, to himself, as convincing as he had hoped...
