Wastes

The wasteland
“When you walk into the Wastes, death walks with you.” -Proverb

Beyond the frontier cities of Torunn, the Wastes stretch off into the west, further than any have ever dared to journey. Sun-scorched and barren, the Wastes have proven the greatest barrier to the further expansion of the human nations. When the Orcs were driven out of Garrick they took refuge in the Wastes, and its mysterious denizens taught them to survive. Now the Orcs have built a nation upon the sands, founding their cities on the shores of the few oases and raising mighty ziggurats to house the remains of their honored Khans. Some adventurers brave enough to treat with the Orcs have even reported seeing dark shapes moving on the horizon, the mysterious beings whom the Orcs call only “The Old Ones.”
