World of Storm and Fury:
Lands of Oortesia:
Lying between the Black Forest to the south and the Thuringian Mountains to the north, this hilly region is home to the brown-skinned Oorta people. Believed to be the oldest human race of Oortesia, the area is semi-civilized, with small settlements protected by wooden palisades and some primitive farming and ranching supplementing hunting and fishing. Unlike most humans, the Oorta tend to be a philosophically peaceful people, and scholars of other nations have uncovered some evidence they may once have been a religious state within the ancient and fallen Empire of Man far to the west, and migrated, or were pushed, across Oortesia during the intervening centuries.
