Asmor's Instant Dungeon: 3rd Level Bane Keep

Moran, the Hand of Bane, was called upon, by Bane, to secure an abandoned Dragon Born keep. Although not nice people, they haven't set about to do any harm to the area per say.
You will need to create a map and provide a bit more story.

Kob is willing to talk, Vim is spoiling for a fight, Ral and Sim will follow who ever shouts the loudest. They are looking for the keep and hope to join Moran's band. If it comes to blows: the Orc raiders will fight until bloodied and then make a break for it. Kob will support his brother, but will surrender if he goes down.
Treasure: Lot #10, traveling supplies and a crude map to the lost keep showing landmarks along the path.

Encounter 2: Post of the Eyes, Level 3, 700xp
4Goblin Warrior (DDI)Level 1 Skirmisher 100Monster Manual, page 137 (Goblin)
2Hobgoblin Archer (DDI)Level 3 Artillery 150Monster Manual, page 139 (Goblin)
Tips: A solitary tower, decrepit tower with the creatures inside.

Treasure:Lot #9

2Blood and Bite, Hobgoblin Soldier (DDI)Level 3 Soldier 150Monster Manual, page 139 (Goblin)
Tips: Blood and Bite along with their pet Rover are herding Creepy and Crawly along the trail laying "early warning" trip lines for the near by front gate. The Hobgoblins are suspicious of strangers, the tethered ettercaps are consuming most of their attention. If a dialog can be established over hissing of the ettercaps, then they will, cautiously escort the PC's to the Front gate. Otherwise they will drop the tethers to allow Creepy and Crawly to throw webs on the strongest, while Blood and Bite fight as a pair with Rover going for the flank.
Treasure: #4 with Blood but it will not come into use in this fight.

If the PC's are escorted, then the commander will challenge their reason for coming. If combat breaks out, the group will move as one and then the Bile will use his "Tactical Deployment" power to try and close the gap. Every time Bile hits the Orc's will cheer.

Tips: The Devil Grunts are applying stucco to the stone walls (3 to a side) while the 2 gnolls sketch out murals in charcoal on the finished portions of the wall.
