The atrowan heights

”Can anything good come from the Atrowan Heights? Not that I’ve seen. Each year its always the same story. As Deepchill sets in the mountains belch, spewing forth yet another vomitous horde of gangly, freakish orks out to raid our lands and steal our women. I mean really! It’s as if the arse of Elucien himself were located in those Heights what with all the demonic excrement we’ve seen!”

Thelabor Dren, Baron of Asdelor.



The Atrowan Heights are a range of mountains south of the Hammodrans. The heights severe the Tindor Foresest to the North, from the Glendor Wood to the south. To the South of the Atrowan Heights lies the the kingdom of Karthador, wherein dwells the city Iscalatharn. The Atrowan Heights were once home to the Dwarves, who delved the city of Ondroth within its underbelly, and founded the citadel of Hethgulan upon their majestic heights. Yet a millennium after the Sundering of the world a sea of undead poured forth from the Western lands of Valna to envelop the Eastern lands. During the War of the Damned, a legion of Orcs assaulted, and captured the city of Ondroth, causing the Dwarven clans to flee to the Downs of Edigroth. Though the armies of Valna eventually fled back to the West, the Orcs have dwelt upon the Atrowan Heights ever since. They are a brutal, warlike race whose clans battle each other as often as they do other races. Yet in the winter months when food is scarce, the Orcs often flood into the Tindor Forest, into Vindovier, and into the western edges of the Downs of Edigroth to rape and pillage and sate their thirst for blood. Recently, Gorlosh, Jarl of the Reaver clan, has managed the feat of uniting the orc clans under his banner. He is a brutal leader with a vision for a new age, an age of Orc supremacy.
