The Reign of Shadow
Bloodsword is a major orcish settlement in Gharj occupied by a minimum of several hundred orc families. The structures of the settlement line the walls of the canyon carefully perched to avoid flash floods.
The orcs here are tough and wiry, with painted faces and ritual scarring. Many of the orcs have trinkets braided into their hair and necklaces of teeth. Several of them wear steer skull head dresses, painted with bright colored dyes. They are all very well armed, with all adults wearing war tomahawks at their sides in addition to larger weapons and throwing spears.
