War of the Stones is a Side Quest in Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition. It may be the most gruesome and long side quests in the entire game. It begins when you speak to the Jahrl in Tribesmen's Warehouse (in Hunter's Edge) about the missing Blood Stones. He will ask you to find evidence against the Orcs as he is convinced they are the culprits of this theft.

This quest will end in a large battle between the Tribesmen and the Orcs in which a lot of Hunter's Edge is wiped out. As such it is suggested to do this quests last, after you have completed the other side quests in the Dark Forest area.
