The Borderlands

An area inhabited by various tribes of half-orcs and orcs, along with others like hobgoblins and gnolls. The orc-kin in the area moved south through the Darrai Desert, which used to be Lake Avers which dried up in the wake of Britta Shea’s Enlightenment of the lake region, when Philus Eldersblood found them in his journeys and recruited them as holy warriors in Eldersblood’s Crusade through the south. Once the crusade was defeated by Eldersblood’s assassination at the hands of Kariah Willowsbane, future founder of the Whispering Shade, one of the founding groups of the Assassin’s Guild of the Capital City, the holy army split up, leaving the orcs and half-orcs with fertile lands to settle in their wide oaken halls. Unification pushed the orcs from their halls in the Auka Plains and into the borderlands where they fought with great ferocity through guerilla warfare that prevented the Empire from securing the borderlands.
