Plaid Hat Games just announced the new Summoner of the Tundra Orcs, Torgan.
We have managed to spy on the new Tundra Orc Summoner in action, and what we saw was important enough that we are writing now before we have any solid intelligence about the forces following him.
The new Summoner Torgan looks rather young, though we cannot be sure about the relative ages of Orcs. But young or old, Torgan has figured out how to do some alarming things with his Summoning Stone. Torgan has taken Grognack’s ability to raise up Ice Walls and developed it to a whole new level. To begin with, we have seen Torgan raise many more Ice Walls than Grognack ever has.
We have carefully observed his use of these walls, and we can verify that they also can be used for summoning, just as Grognack’s Ice Walls can. There are two weaknesses in them that we can see. First, they are weaker and even easier to destroy than Grognack’s Ice Walls. We do not know whether this means that destroying them builds up a Summoner’s magic reserve, as with Grognack’s Ice Walls, or not, as with Mugglug’s Vine Walls.
