But the King’s council intervened, knowing

that to lose the bloodline of Lord J’roth

would spell disaster for their people.

And so it was that for his crime of treason,

Lord J’roth, First Lord and General of the

mighty Orc empire, was cast out, he and his followers

and his newborn son, Korgath, with him.

For one hundred and twenty days and nights they

sailed, coming soon upon the shores

of a wild isle.

They set to conquer the isle; the centaurs

and the creeping human settlers.

But J’roth was betrayed, and the

We begin with the story of Korgath,

son of J’roth. . .






Son of the Lord who rebelled against the Orc Emperor and was outcast to the Isle Brithia, he has spent his entire life warring to ensure the survival of the conspirators and their offspring.


Now it is time for the newly crowned Orc Kings to turn their attention to the encroaching human and centaur settlements.


 There is gold, iron ore, and coal on the Isle, and its rich fishing and hunting plus its location adjacent to a newly formed sea trade route makes it ripe for conquest.


Whoever tames this wilderness will become a military and political might in the world.


Korgath is determined to be the might, but first he must bring the human Senator who claims Brithia on behalf of the Romades Empire.
