Deep in the jungle islands, the thunderous drums of orc-kind beat in a stirred frenzy. Hunts continue, and the bux and grawl counts dwindle as a new orc tribe moves in to stake their claim on their ancestral home. Great logs are erected on stone foundation and the heads of male bux are mounted on pikes with their horns dominantly coated in blood. Fires create smoke spires, a sure sign from great distances that the green-skins have made their home. For better or worse, the orcs have returned to Hazordhu. Currently a dominating tribe in Hazordhu, all orcs will start in the territory of the Bloodhorn Bux Tribe. While not meant to be a war tribe in itself, all fledgling orcs will start among the Bloodhorn Bux and find their way out into the wilds, forging their own path and perhaps a tribe for themselves. The Bloodhorn Bux are currently lead the self-proclaimed High-Chieftain of the orcs.
The Bloodhorn Bux have, set in stone, only a few rules that define their society. It is their tenants, their creed, that are followed to the letter lest punishment be cast down on those who break them. The rules are as follows:
1) The strongest orc will lead. Strength and wisdom determine the strength of a chieftain. 2) Anyone may challenge the High Chieftain if another orc champions them. 3) The High Shaman will observe any challenges to a High Chieftain. A challenge may take the form of a duel or a faction skirmish, depending on the number of followers of both parties, and the terms of the challenged. When started, the challenge does not end until either the chieftain or challenger yields or dies. The winner will take the seat as Chieftain and punish the loser and their champion(s) as they see fit. 4) In-fighting outside of honorable duels and confrontation is strictly prohibited. Disagreements are handled in discourse and should it require to be, it is to be settled by honorable combat. Dishonorable killings are punishable by banishment from the tribe and its lands. 5) Take what you need, and give what you do not. We are a tribe. We share what we have to those who need them. Aid the fledglings and feed the injured. Together, we thrive.
