The Fireborn tribe has hosted those who got sucked through the portal since the day that all passed the tests handed down by the Great Lady Fire. One of the scouts of the tribe runs into the village where the adventures have been staying and speaks quickly in Orcish to the Chief. She calls for silence in her native tongue and looks over to the newest members of her tribe.
"The door that appeared when you first came is again in the clearing. It seems you may return to the land of the foolish if you wish."
Having grown used to the tough but warm community with the Fireborn tribe, Symon hesitated when he heard the news of the portal. There were honest and good people in his new tribe who had taken him in despite being a total foreigner to the those lands. For the first time in his journeys, he felt as if he was actually honoring his code. But try as he might to be one of them, Symon was not an orc and he never would be.
"Chieftain, it's been an honor serving this tribe under you, but I need to return to my own foolish tribe back in Delbin. If I ever come back through these parts, however, my sword will always be yours."
With that, he gathered his meagre possessions and waited the others who would travel back through the forest to the portal.
It was with a heavy heart that Lorman heard the news of the portal's return. He had hoped that the portal might not come for another month, perhaps a year. He had enjoyed his time with the Fireborn tribe greatly (despite the prevalence of Grog), and had grown to care for his tribe-mates. He had especially relished the opportunity to learn more about Freya, the mother of Solice.
Lorman almost decided not to go back through the portal, remembering the bar full of backstabbing adventurers and over-priced merchants. In the end, he decided that this may be his only chance, and so he reluctantly decided to go. He said to the Priestess: "Thank you, great priestess of Freya, for giving us such wonderful hospitality, and allowing us to join your tribe. I hope one day soon to return and continue learning of the ways of Freya. Until then, may the Sun guide your path."
He then joined the others, muttering to Sir Symon: "At least they don't have talking monkeys in Ashling."

"Return to you own people in good health, noble heroes." The priestess said and bowed to all that were leaving. "You will always be welcome back in our lands and our tribe." She then motioned to the scouts to guide them back to where the portal has been seen.
