The story of the Orc's is one that they alone could have lived through.
Even though they were the same race, they came from the same place, they still were separated in clans which fight for the power. In the far woods of Ashenvale the Zabijan Woods two clans were fighting for glory and power.
The Clans Raa'KtnoK and Se'ghor had allieded or conquered all other clans in that region.
The Zabijan Woods were the final boarder between the territories of those two powerful clans.
Clan Raa'Ktnok was leaded by the same named warlock Raa'Ktnok. The Raa'KtnoK clan was based on brutality and strength. The Se'ghor clan was a more delicate clan and their ultimate goal was to unite all other clans without fighting. Clan Se'ghor was a well prepared clan with a battle tactic for almost every situation. The two clans had fought ever since for the power over the Orcs in Ashenvale. Clan Se'ghor had been in possession and still was of the Blood Axe of Chaos , powerful axe that had been passed through generations to the male members of the Se'ghor family.
But this time there were no male heir to pass the axe. The only heir was a female orc named Iksha . Iksha had been training her whole life to fight for the clan not to rule it. As a female she couldn't take the axe and rule the clan she should fight.
She was determined to finish the war as there were to many blood losses on both sides.
One night as she got back from training her father was on his mount and ready to go into the battle. "Father were are you going? You are not allowed to go into the battle!Who will lead the Clanif you die?" asked Iksha. "The axe is in the chest if i wont come back hahaha, you will lead the clan. I don't care what a oracle once told to our shamans, you have proven yourself as a
good warrior and i believe in you. And do not be worry i will be back. Lok'tar ogar(Victory or Death)!" was the answer of the great leader of the clan. As he was leaving Iksha was standing shocked and thinking "What?I?No he will return. I know my father. He will win the battle and finally end the war uniting all the clans and stopping this madness. But....what if he doesn't return?What if i need to be the Clan Leader?I..." she was interrupted by Mothrun her friend and helper who was there from her birth "Child what are you doing still outside? It is getting cold" Iksha responded "I am worried... what if.." Mothrun interrupted her again "Get some rest and stop worrying it will all be all right, I am sure your father wouldn't go if he knew he would lose the battle. Now common in and get some sleep"
After a sleepless night, in the morning the sound of the se'ghor horn had woken up the whole camp. Iksha looking through the window. She saw something weird. Her father wasn't leading the army of the hundred warriors and she couldn't recognize any of the orcs that entered in to the camp. She took the Blood Axe of Chaos from the box. As she had token the axe
the big heavy axe become smaller and smaller so small that she could easy put it in her pocket without anyone noticing. Mothrun rushed in "Don't get out, please stay here. I think you are in danger." Iksha was shocked "What...who are thous grunts? I cannot seem to find a familiar face! And where is my father?" A silence of some minutes started in the small hut. Mothrun was filing the same as Iksha that something is wrong.
Out of nowhere another horn had been heard. It was a horn of the Wolf Rider Thurg
"Kagh!Kagh!(Run,Run)" That was the army of the Clan Raa'KtnoK , riding the wolf directly to the hut of Iksha and Mothrun. "We need to get out of here!Or we all gonna die" Thurg grabed Iksha and Mothrun and helped them to get up on the wolf. They then rode out of the camp in the forest. "Where is my Father?" Ikasha asked. "Your father is badly wounded and had been transported to Zoram'gar" Thurg barely breathing answered
"Will he survive ? Answer me NOW!" Iksha replied furious about what happened "I don't know! My mission was to escort you" Thurg responded "What? How could you not know...." Mothrun " Iksha! He saved our lives you should thank him not yell at him"
"But...but ah... we need to go to Zoram'gar to see if my father is safe" Iksha started to calm down "Shhhhh... i think someone followed us. Don't move" as they hid in the bushes Thurg sent his wolf to run forward. In that moment two orcs rushed towards the wolf. Iksha got angry again "Now its the time to use the Blood Axe of Chaos" she thought. She quickly got the axe out and as quickly the axe got back to its normal size. She jumped on to one of the orcs, cut him in half and other orc was killed by Thurg's "Blacksteal Blade" . "How did you do that ?" at the same time Mothrun and Thurg asked Iksha "I didn't do anything! The axe did all itself" "You got better since we last had our practice duel" Thurg added.
"Well its no time for compliments on my fighting skills , we have to reach Zoram'gar to see if my father is safe" Iksha blushed even thought by orcs you almost cant see it because of the color of their skin, but this time was intense. They got ready and started riding to the nearest camp of the clan, to the camp Mor'shan .
As they approached Iksha's old friend and her father couldn't believe that she finally came to visit him.
"Iksha it had been a long since i saw you the last time . Eh, look at you! You became an Om'riggor(Adult in orchish)."
"I am glad to see you Burwh'at..." Iksha responded in a sad way "I know why are your sad, I have heard the news, the clan is weakening. We need to start striking back harder"
Iksha "I don't understand them! Why they want war? Those warlock thinks he cannot be beaten but as soon as my father recovers we will crush him! But for now we need a favor. We need a place to sleep, some food and to make supplies for our journey" "Everything for you Iksha" . After they had been invited to sleep at Burwh'at house and they ate the meal prepared by his wife, they stayed over the night. In the morning Iksha woke up Mothrun and Thurg, they packed and leaved leaving a note and some gold on the table.
They left on their own mounts, Iksha with an Kobo, Mothrun a raptor, and Thurg with his wolf. They got to Zoram'gar in a few hours. They bearly made a pause.
They arrived at the Camp of shamans. There two doctors and one shaman threated her father. "Iksha...you made it! ghuughughu...now i can rest...ahh..." The shaman cast a spell and the witch doctors gave him a potion that kept him alive "You now have to...ghuuuuu...lead the clan....i am to weak... Assemble the army and march to our boarders, if you have the axe that will protect you...ahh.. i wish i had spent more time with you..." Ikasha interrupts with him tears in her eyes "You will father you will survive and help me to win"
"I will always be with you my child same as the rest of our ancestors that have use the axe, their soul is after their death transformed into energy for the axe that makes it makes it so powerful. Ahh...my child...i will always be near you aghghhh..." that were the last words of Racen Se'ghor "Father no..." Iksha started crying, Mothrun " Iksha you need to be strong, you are now the clan leader....You have to be strong to unite us so there wont be any blood baths." Ikasha" Snif...I will revenge my fathers death! Raa'Ktnok I course you for all times and i will hunt you until i will kill you. Lok'tar ogar(Vitory or Death)" . They remained in the camp for a couple of days. Iksha had sent an letter to each army leader she knew personally and to each from the list that she got from the witch doctors who threated her father.
In 7 Days the biggest army possible to assemble for the clan had been assembled.
As the army had got assembled Iksha stode on a big rock and started to speach..
"Fellow orcs , Honorred warriors of the clan, Our great leaderRacen Se'ghor died and has chose me as the new leader!"
"But that's unpossible! A male had been always a clan leader" said Har'Gham the leader of the tar orcs from the north.
"How can you be the clan leader? Where is the Blood Axe of Chaos?" asked Narand the leader of the south orc army Lok'waz
"I do not care if you are a women or men I just want you to lead us to victory" said Hag'Losh te leader of the west Amon'nathal army.
"I agree with Hag'losh. We need a leader who will bring us victory no matter what" said Drog Tearshorn the leader of the East Tearshorn army.
"SILENCE !Yours new leader is speaking" Thurg interrupted the discussions.
"I will lead you to victory. Here is the Blood Axe of Chaos" She pulled out the axe"By the name of my ancestors and my father I will bring you victory Lok'tar(Victory)!Lok'tar Lok'tar Lok'tar"
"Lok'tar" Everyone screamed ...After that the leaders came up with a plan on how to end this War.
After 2 days the plan had been finished to perfection and should be carried out.
The first thing to do was to distract the enemy. Hag'losh had voluntired to attack a base camp of the Raa'KtnoK clan near the Zabijan Woods. In the maintain the enemy sent reinforcements from the nearest camp which was the main camp Bazv'ok . Hag'losh was known for his ability to command small groups of wolf riders precise onto the most vulnerable targets of a camp or a city. The attack should destroy the main watch towers and in the same time the gates but only should damage half of the camp warriors so some of them can go for reinforcements.
In the maintain the other forces would assemble in front of the Zabijan Woods where they would wait for a messenger.
Some scouts would be posted in the woods in case of discovering the Clan Se'aghor forces in front of it. After a day resting and preparing for the battle, Iksha gave the command to begin the war.
"Was it the right decision?" Iksha was thinking "Or will we all lose because of me? No i cant let that happen, and i never will. Its..yes the messenger "
"They have fallen in our trap attack now" messenger.
Iksha screamed the command "Attack !" On her right side were Thurg,Narand and on her left Drog Tearshorn, Har'Gham. In the main camp Alvanar the orcs were surprised. Even Raa'KtnoK was surprised to see such a big army.
"Its impossible! I killed their leader....How could this happen?? Call the reinforcements back now" Raa'KtnoK saidto his soon Greenwall who was his right hand. As Greenwall rushed to get reinforcements Clan Se'aghor was getting the upper hand over the battle. Iksha was slashing through the enemy, determined to revenge her father. She got a blood frenzy she couldnt stop killing. Suddenly she screamed
"Raa'KtnoK I have come to get you. You will pay for my fathers death and the death of thousands of orcs"
"You will never win this battle stupid girl....my powers are bigger then anyone elses"Raa'KtnoK responded
"Iksha the wolf riders are coming to us" Thurg yelled. "What? What are they doing?" thought she.
"What are you doing? You should attack the other camp!" Iksha told Hag'losh
"We did but suddenly they all left so we joined you"Hag'losh responded.
After an hour of battle there were many corps and many loses on both sides....
The only way to win the battle for Iksha was to kill Raa'KtnoK. "But to kill such a powerfull warlock? How can i do it?" she was thinking
"Use the axe my child! It is a powerful weapon that can kill everything if you have a good cause and believe in us"
She looked up to her axe covered with blood of the orcs and there was the face of her father. "Thank you father. Har'Gham,Narand,Hag'losh,Thurg , help me get to Raa'KnotK now!"
They started making a way through the massive army to the fearsome warlock. As they moved forward Iksha jumped over them and started cut a way through the orc masses like a knife through butter.
As she got to the warlock...."You are strong but not strong enough" said the warlock .
"I need only to be so strong to defeat you and stop this massacker" As they started fighting they didn't noticed anyone except their enemy.
The warlock started casting shadowbolts on her injuring her badly. She felt....The Warlock came near her and as he got ready for the finale blow...
"You will now perish like your father before you Iksha Se'aghor muahahah" She managed with her left strength to pull up the axe and hit the warlock...
"You cant kill me with a normal weapon I have a power shield hahahaha!" on which Iksha smiled "This isn't a normal weapon it contains the souls of my
ancestors!" as she said that on the Blood Axe of Chaos started to grow spikes and the axe itself started to grow passing trough the Power Shield of the
Warlock. "How did you do it? Thats unpossible" Raa'Ktnok changed the look on his face from convinced to scared. He never thought that this would happen...
"Little girl your still to weak to break my power shield...what the...." as he turned around Thurg and Har'Gham started to attack him.
The shield started to lose his power. "Maybe a little girl cant destroy your shield alone but with some help I WILL UNITE THE ORCS!!!" the Axe passed through the shield and the warlock's head rolled.
As the head of the warlock rolled the fight stopped... Thurg got to Iksha "We did it, I knew you can defeat him" Iksha "I couldn't done it without some help" Iksha lost her conscious....
"Mothrun huh? I had the strangest dream...I had to fight a war..." Mothrun " Child that wasn't a dream you were unconscious for 2 days, but your wounds are healed all and you could now return to your throne" "What happened to the rest of them" Iksha asked "Everyone returned home and awaits your order, except Thurg. He is still here"
Iksha jumped out of the bad and ran directly in to the arms of Thurg....
"Iksha you are saved...I am so glad" Iksha interrupt him "Shhh.. now its all over..."
"So a mighty hero like you Iksha sure has someone chosen to rule with her...."
Iksha "Hihihi....well that is my least worry...."
