Age of Heroes
Once known as the Northern Kingdoms, the Kingdom fell quickly and brutally when through a freak stroke of fortune a fleet of Orcs and Goblins miraculously managed to make it largely unscathed onto the Kingdom’s northern shores.
Unprepared for what was to come, the Northern Kingdom was swiftly and brutally put to the sword by the Orcs who threatened to swarm over and destroy the other kingdoms as well. A hundred year long war followed, known as the Orc Wars before the Orcs were finally beaten and broken.
They fled back into what remained of the Northern and Southern Kingdoms and Genoshia was split in two by an area that came to be known simply as the Badlands. No civilised town or city can be found there, only the barbaric orc and goblin tribes who fight each other as much as the bordering countries for dominance.
