A Shadow over Akeroth
With the Settlings among the Kythric and their increased militarization, the Orcs found that they were unable to raid neither the Kythric or Halflings. As raid after raid failed the population of Orcanum began to starve and the Orcish Chieftains came together at the Fortress of the Shattered Hand.
With the coming together of all the Orcish Chieftains and their Tribes a consensus was made, either the Orcs would have to come together or starve to death; while many tribal conflicts existed which kept the Orcs from unifying, when they were faced with death the decision was made and together the disparate tribes become one confederation.
The formation of the Confederation marked a new age for the Orcs as the beginnings of a new Orcish empire (Ogar) were created, and together with their might they would smash the Kythric defences and descend unto Evermare and the Halflings.
