The Chronicles of Corcia
The Orc Tribes
Even before the war the orcs have been known for attacking other civilizations for centuries. The tribes of the orcs could never fully get along, and would constantly skirmish with each other over land. At the time of the great war bands of orcs would go around looting and pillaging areas that were vulnerable due to the war. they would also kidnap civilians to be used as slaves within their tribes. Some orc tribes would send out bands of orcs to work as mercenaries, but as the war went on the humans made it almost impossible for an orc to get hired without being a part of their mercenary group. Due to the harsh desert environment the orcs lived in not many nations would launch an offensive to claim the worthless land. This allowed the orcs to continuously harass the opposing faction and the other orc tribes. When the treaty of peace was signed by the other nations, the individual orc tribes could not stand up against the might of the three nations. The orc tribes then began fighting amongts themselves as they were effectively quarantined to their dessert homeland. Recently there has been talk of an orc who has been going around to the orc tribes and getting them to work together, a threat no one ever had seen coming. By uniting all of these orcish tribes the fighting force would be so massive that the three nations combined might may not be able to stop it. The orc refuses any contact with the cloister of peace, and no one knows his true reasons for uniting the orc clans. Currency under his leader ship the orcs have began to be able to escape from their quarantine and set up new settlements around the continent. None of the three nations have acted against this orc threat, and the orc seems to have no intention of slowing down. If he can unite all of the orcs before the three nations decide to act then the balance of power will be upset, and the whole continent will be at risk for war.
