    Kill the orcs if they get in the way, otherwise try to ally with them for now but do not recruit them for the village - including orcs in a village with dwarves is a recipe for disaster. No goblins either, unless they are chaos seeds or can be settled in a different part of the mist kingdom far away from their racial enemies. While Richter is somewhat tolerant (except for the time he murdered those kobolds without thinking twice about it, possibly due to kobolds being a racial enemy for humans), that doesn't mean the people that suffered are willing to let go of thousands of years of war crimes and hatred. Let alone more recent crimes, the kindir did mention that the orcs are pushing into lands where they haven't been seen for eons.

    Recruit the chaos seed if he is sane.

    Farm the dead t2 worms for all he can with the points on hand, then get out before something bigger and meaner is attracted by the smell of free food.

    Focus on getting to the underground city to ascertain the state of affairs there so he can start planning.

    Orc warparty is my guess considering that we have the kindirs word that orcs are invading the forest.

    I don't think there were any civilians, just non-professed warriors (possibly with a few professionals going down as well) getting slaughtered by monsters that were at least 10+ levels above them, with some of the monsters being tier 2.

    Do we even know for certain that the fifth being in that cave is an orc? Is it possible its a being with a different race and that the orcs were chasing after it? Since it was hiding and wasn't helping the orcs with the monsters.

    No we don't. We have no context clues as to whom or what the last set of eyes belong to, just that it has eyes.

    The last line of book 8 says there were 5 sets of eyes staring back at him.

    I was assuming it was talking about his golem or one of his summons, but it seems the consensus is that there is someone else hidden around besides the 4 orcs.

    Yes in that last chapter Ricter can tell that there are 5 people in the cave, and now that I think about it. The probability that it is a chaos seed is very high.

    No doubt Ricther sensed it. With the Five sets of eyes looking back after working with the four Orcs it kind of makes you come to that conclusion. Then again that hidden set of eyes might be carrying something chaotic. Didn’t eyes of a chaos god only sense sources of chaos?

    Yeah they should get out of there. Richter is regularly running into multiple t2's, they seem to be fairly common in the deeps. Richter is a bad motherfucker, that doesn't mean he should take risks without real backup. Say something gets lucky with a stun or knocks him out with some kind of attack. He would effectively be helpless with a braindead golem (easy for a semiintelligent opponent to pull it off him by presenting a target and slowly walking away) and a few lowlevel summons as his only reliable protection.

    The worm will be free the moment he is distracted. The orcs are unknown. The chaos source is also an unknown factor. Richter is fighting monsters in his underwear with a bone he picked up, he is most definitely not kited out to face an opponent.

    I would say it all depends on whether or not the orcs are a force that can be allied with, and whether that fifth set of eyes is someone that is friendly. If they are neutral or worse, have antagonistic feeling towards him, than he absolutely should be looking for safety till his 7 days are up.

    Depends if we get Orcs onboard, and why should we not? if they don't wanna swear allegiance or give oaths or favors.. FEED THEM TO THE WORMS
    Srsly after saving their asses they owe us everything, make them pay!

    Now what ya all seem to forget is that Richto is now Like ~14 points/ 100 points to reach the next evolution of his Chaos Lord bloodline whatever. I bet If we would try we could reach few evolutions thus getting massive chaos bonus in next 25-23 days or so.
    That is a reason why he should hunt and consume. could be done on the way I guess.. Also I bet that while he will consume all the bodies.. at least 12h will pass and new monsters should come if they could come that is.

    Consuming all the bodies would take the better part of a week.

    The rest has been said.

    Limiting himself to the tier 2 bodies should only take about ~2-3 days for the chance to raise his chances at passive health regen.

    True. It remains a risky move. Can't he just harvest what he can from one and have the puppeteered one and the golem drag the other one along? It might deterioate a little. Alternatively the golem could consume the dead worm for exp, I don't think it needs to digest them as such.

    I think he's gained plenty already, he should just grab a friendly chaos seed as a subordinate, snatch the wand quickly, then high-tail it back to the village in time to feed his dungeon an entire army of bugbears. There will be plenty of evolved monsters for him to feed on in the mists after that.

    Snatching the wand is likely to be a full book adventure. Might stretch it to two books as Richter carves his way through the catacombs, to the city, getting a feel for the underground. If the imp finds a way to cheat Richter out of a quick trip home it could take 3 books before the village takes centerstage.
