Marches de l'Ombre


For millennia, the
Shadow Marches were the domain of the orcs of Khorvaire. It was a land scarred by the ancient
conflict with the daelkyr, where the descendants of the first druidic Gatekeepers and those corrupted
by the touch of Xoriat continued to battle in the darkness. Five hundred years before the Mark of
Finding appeared, in -500 YK, humans had come to the Shadow Marches, refugees from the distant
continent of Sarlona who were fleeing the growing power of the Inspired of Riedra in the wake of the
Sundering. Though many of the orcish tribes of the Marches met the first waves of human settlers
with hostility, a handful of the tribes welcomed these strangers. Over time, this union of cultures
produced both the human and orcish Marcher clans of the modern age and the jhorgun’taal: the
“children of two bloods” in Orcish, the half-orcs.
