The Orcish Marshes

The orcs of the northwestern marshes played no part in the past conflicts of the central continent. They were not displaced by the elven migrations. By the time the other races first landed on the continent, the marsh orcs’ numbers had already dwindled due to multiple plagues. At their height, these orcs had established their own kingdom in what is now Morganshold. Some suggest that that kingdom was as old as Nalsur’s, others that another existed before it. However, once the fevers began, the orcs declared Morganshold a cursed place and abandoned it. Diminished populations and the rise of the Orlandi in the south erased the weak orcish holds on the western coast so that the marsh orcs were reduced to their current home, huddled in the marshes.

Now that an orcish kingdom has declared to the east, many marsh orcs are calling on leaders to join their lands to Kohlauggen. Morganshold is even feeling the pressure of multiple orcish tribes urging them to join the orcs in their inevitable war with the elves, though the Morgans would rather prepare for the rise of the Orlandi.
