Vines climb the ruined walls of what was once an Orc
war camp, a remnant of their tirade through the Spine of Kallex
during the Eldritch War
. This is one of many of such camps, abandoned as the Orcs
learned the true potential of the Barbarians
of this land, a land that was one of Elves
, not creatures of destruction. Shattered buildings and rings of burnt and turned earth were all that remained of this place, the only memory that war had touched the hidden valleys of the Spine
. But the Spine
shows no mercy to any creature. Even memories burned into the earth disappear over time.
Once a circle of barren earth and broken buildings, the area known as Grik’s Bend has been retaken. No longer does the stench of burnt earth and Orcs
permeate every inch of the valley. Nature has taken back what was hers, but chose to honor the Barbarians
that fought for her. The war camp of Grik’s Bend was replaced with a sanctuary, a home for animals and people alike. A safe haven tucked in the hidden valleys of the Spine of Kallex.
, protected by the nature around them.
Decades after the Orcs
left the area and nature began to reclaim what was hers, the Lulskar Clan
saw an opportunity. In this safe haven, they built a single building, one that would house some of their clan members, so that they could care for the creatures that had found safety in this hidden valley. Injured animals came here of their own volition, only to be cared for by the clan and eventually returned to their true home. Grik’s Bend became a sanctuary for the lost and injured, a far cry from its beginnings.
Once an Orc
war camp, Grik's Bend was soon taken over by nature when the Orcs
vacated. Now, the site serves as an animal santaury kept by the Lulskar Clan
Very few alterations have occurred at the site since its original building. Once the Orcs
abandoned their camp, nature reclaimed the area, breaking apart the buildings and covering everything with a layer of new growth. When the Lulskar Clan
came to the area, they built a single building, one that would be used for housing for their clan as well as a clean area to help any creatures that came to Grik’s Bend.
