Elder Scrolls Online Info
The Desert Orcs (aka Sand Orcs) were established shortly after the fall of the first Orsinium in 1E 980. They are direct descendants of Baloth Bloodtusk and his Savage Sons. Baloth was originially a member of Clan Morkul, it is not known if he was exiled and if so why, however he went on to form the Savage Sons, a mercenary outfit which consisted of clanless and exiled Orcs. In 1E 950 King Jolie of Daggerfall manipulated Baloth into dueling Gaiden Shinjii (leader of the Order of Diagna) over the fate of Orsinium. Little known to both warriors that they had been tricked and set up by King Jolie, during the duel, King Jolie had his archers kill both combatants, effectively removing the most powerful warriors of both Orsinium and The Order Of Diagna. The Savage Sons gained a new found respect for the philosophy and skills of the Ra Gada soldiers and after their deaths both Baloth and Gaiden were buried in Honor's Rest in Wrothgar. The war lasted 30 years but in the end Orsinium had fallen and the Orcs were dispersed. During this time members of the Savage Sons migrated South with descendants of Baloth Bloodtusk as well as members of clans who are now mostly forgotten, including The Pandrum, The Enclave, The Luccin, The Murtag and The Ruskahr. Overtime they would establish themselves in the Fallen Wastes. Here they encountered The Gray Host and members became afflicted with Vampirism and Lycantropy which they carry with them till this day. Overtime Nor'crun Beshkarnor would rise to become Chieftain and the Sand Orcs would take his name to become known as Clan Beshkarnor(which translates to Deathforge). Eventually they adapted to the harsh desert terrain and over many years developed a distinct culture. They created their stronghold in an ancient Yokudan ruin. The Sand Orcs tend to be darker in color than their Valenwood,Craglorn and Wrothgar cousins and do not have the typical Orcish disdain for magick. The desert climate has made them some of the fiercest Orcs one can encounter, however their adoption of aspects of Yokudan/Redguard culture and philosophy has helped them to develop into shrewd traders and merchants who wouldn't hesitate to decapitate a possible customer or business partner if they feel disrespected by an offer or proposition. Faithful to Malacath they believe that their unique culture (and afflictions) are blessings from their deity.
