Krasogg is a village of 5 Orc tribes that have come together as allies after a history of conflicts. They call themselves The Orc Horde. The 5 Orc clans are united under one Warchief, Thorak Stoneslayer. The clans have formed an alliance after they were attacked and slaughtered in The Brutal War by The Fenorian Empire.
Thorak StoneslayerThorak is the current Warchief of The Orc Horde and has been for more than 40 years. During his whole life, he has not once been challenged to a Krush by anyone, as it is seen as sudden death to challenge him.

Darkwind ClanMembers of this clan are well-known for being fast and agile. The current leader is I'rihza Darkhammer.
Some family names in this clan are: Darkhammer, Darksplitter, Darkbinder, Darkeye. The Darkwind family, who established this clan has disappeared.
The WarchiefThe title of Warchief is given to the strongest warrior in the Horde and can be challenged at any moment by another Orc. This is done by a sacred tradition, held for as long as any Orc can remember, called a Krush. 2 warriors fight to the death without any weapons or armor. Surrendering is very dishonorable towards your opponent and when it happens, the loser is exiled. Being exiled is even worse than death in their eyes. The Krush is an important part of the culture of the Orcs, as it is their way of settling most conflicts.
CultureThe Horde consists of only Orcs as everyone is born from a member of a the Horde and it is impossible for an outsider to join an Orc clan. Half-orc are never born from a female Orc, but only from human women and a child of a human would never be accepted into the Horde. This means that even Half-orc have no place in Krasogg.
Food is gathered mostly by hunting, which they do very carefully in the forests without hitting any trees. They also gather plants and berries, which they also do very carefully.
