Continental Excursions; Oublier

North of Forêt Verte and Chute de l’Ombre is the fetid and defiled land of Oublier, a wretched and hostile place ruled by orcs. Unlike Slothjemia, that managed to adjust to doing things the way that humans do, the orcs of Oublier do things the way orcs have always done them; with violence, avarice, and strength.

Where the orcs came from is anybody’s guess, but once they settled in Oublier they set about making it their own. Without any neighbors strong enough to stop them, the orcs built a towering city on the once fertile plains in the heart of their domain. Calling it Bozageest, it is a haven of all manner of obscene behavior. Unsavory people go there to buy and sell slaves, stolen goods, or to just revel in the atmosphere of “might makes right” that the orcs thrive in.

Oublier is still a decent enough place to raise crops, even though the land has been steadily in decline since the orcs took over. Unaccustomed to agriculture themselves, the orcs use slaves to raise their food. Most of these unfortunate souls are brought in from provinces northwest of Oublier, and consist whenever possible of halflings. When the orcs are not raiding for slaves, they are arranging for other people to do it for them. The entire economy hinges on the thousands of slaves that produce the region’s food.

The forges and factories of Bozageest fill the sky above Oublier with dark, toxic smoke. Folks concerned with the health of the forests nearby to Oublier keep a wary eye on what happens in the orcish province. Respecting only power, it takes quite a punch to get their attention. They respect the green dragon that lurks in Forêt Verte, and have a healthy fear of the Marquis of Chute de l’Ombre, and they are potentially in agreement with the evil that governs Maelonbourg. But everything in the Wenigzustand is subject to change, often at the most inopportune times.
