The land of the orcs is held together by a common brutality and desire for destruction. Driven by their worship of Iss and Desdemonica, the brutal orcs raid and pillage every time they venture from their lands. The occasional half-orcs that exist in Dirio are most often a result of Griknoskan rapists, and are feared and hated for their orcish ties. Orcs are viewed as the vilest of creatures, and are hunted by almost every goodly nation. None of the other First Races are permitted within the Orcish lands, with the exception of Dragons (though only evil dragons would be found there, and they run the risk of being captured and enslaved by the orcs). Other races find a safe haven within this land however; the teetering Goblin Tower, filthy trolls hovels, whimpering kobolds. The land is ruled by two chiefs, both constantly vying for power over the other. This is to ensure a ruler does not become weak. Magic has a terrifying presence within the land, with the rare individual of the humanoid races taking up necromancy or conjuration. Chadosis also has a large following within Griknoska.
