Fall of the Warlock Kings
Savage race of the north, living in the Northern Wastes from Northren to the Furthest Shore. In the time of the Orcish Horde many orcs also came into the Dragon Empire and the Plains of Chan, where some remained. These orcs are more civilized than their still tribal brethren of the wastes. Orcs are often found as mercanaries in more civilized parts of the world. Orcs may interbreed freely with humans, producing half orcs, and with hobgoblins, producing either bugbears or half-orcs. Mephis is the one notable city created by, and still dominated by, orcs.
