12.14.11 the Kenuba Wastes Outpost
Deep into the Third Age, the orcs of the Kenabu Wastes came into being as a more intelligent, magickal offshoot of the Strengmire clan. Initially used for experiments by a Lich called Thalec in the Upper Feinhorn, this conglomeration of orcs managed to withstand the mortal and divine onslaught that led to Thalec's ultimate banishment from the prime material plane. While hiding in the deepest regions of the Gongens for a generation, this segment of Strengmire orcs began to utilize and embrace the dark and necromantic magicks that were initially used upon them, managing to form a basic understanding of their workings and how to employ them for their own dire purposes. Upon learning of the special magickal properties of the terrain in and around Stavenn, it was eventually decided within the group to carefully make their way towards the barren wastelands to the west of Stavenn itself. Finding a wholly unpopulated area situated amidst both marshes and rocky hills, the orcs created a stronghold in the Kenabu Wastes, where they could further carry out their magickal experiments in a terrain much more sympathetic to their aims.
