Realm of the Orog Tribes
Three orog tribes live in these caverns, survivors of the ancient times when the Ilithid Wars raged across the Underdark. All the orog tribes serve as a microcosm of medieval life, with the two smaller tribes (the * Scarshield Orog Tribe and the * Bloodfist Orog Tribe ) acting as vassals to their lead tribe, the * Rageskull Orog Tribe. The “Lost Tribe” of the *Crushbone Orc Tribe are wandering mercenary outcasts from many other tribes, serving anyone who pays them, but they often work closely with the Rageskulls for supplies and to house their limited “dependents”.
