Super Awesome Campaign of Awesomeness
The reclusive orcs of the west stayed out of the affairs of other races. However, in the waning years of the Age of Myth, this long-standing tradition changed when a coalition of orc warriors from various tribes joined the alliance that repelled the dwarven army at the Battle of Winter’s Eve. Though history has not preserved the motivation behind this unexpected aid, it has preserved the name of their leader: Gurkain Darkeyes.
Little is known of this orc hero, but it is said that Darkeyes was a Shaman of great power in the service of the Aspect of Darkness whose skills, along with the martial prowress of the orc tribes, were influential in obtaining victory. After saving the human city, the orcs returned to their homeland where they remain to this day. The ultimate fate of Gurkain Darkeyes is unknown.
