Post Greyhawk Wars: 585 CY
His Most Ferocious Majesty, Turrosh Mak is the Despot of the Orcish Empire of the Pomarj.
Turrosh Mak is an unattractive half-orc, although he is able to pass easily as an ugly human. When addressing his orcish followers, he disguises himself and wears orcish war regalia in order to look more like one of them. He is tall and strong-bodied, but is starting to go gray at his temples. He is an intelligent and ruthless warrior, a survivor who will use any dirty trick at his disposal to stay alive.
Turrosh Mak normally wears magical chainmail, but he will wear leather armor instead if he’s trying to sneak around.
Turrosh Mak is a founding member of the Slave Lords and is still closely allied with their present incarnation. He has pledged himself to the Earth Dragon in return for power, and is thus allied with that god’s cult.
Turrosh Mak was formerly known as Theg Narlot. In 569 CY he joined a secret brotherhood assembled by Stalman Klim named the Nine. Later it would be renamed the Slave Lords. In 574 CY, the Nine assassinated King Rodric of Suderham; as the group’s assassin, presumedly Theg Narlot executed the man himself. Within a matter of hours, the Nine had taken over the city. For four years the Slave Lords kidnapped and sold slaves all around the Sea of Gearnat. In 580 CY a band of adventurers attempted to defeat the Slave Lords. The city of Suderham from which they ruled was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Flamenblut. Theg Narlot disappeared into the Pomarj, but reemerged in the early 580s as Turrosh Mak, who used a combination of judicious assassinations and brute military force to unite the humanoid tribes of the region and forge them into a kingdom.
In Readying of 584 CY, Despot Mak sent his troops to conquer the southern Wild Coast and the eastern Principality of Ulek.
Turrosh Mak, blood of Krugur Mak, great reaver and bane to civil kind, chief of the Fire Skulls tribe, now his Most Ferocious Majesty who holds rule over all Pomarj tribes. He leads with a brute force and cruel intelligence unseen of in centuries. Standing nearly 7 feet in height and of gigantic girth, Turrosh’s presence alone commands respect and fear from the most fierce of warriors amongst the Pomarj Tribes. Having slain his own brethren, challenge and defeated his own father Krugur, he succeeded to the right. With his own, specifically chosen warriors, he acquired control, first of the Fire Skulls, then one by one, convinced through bloody ordeal, or savagely conquered the other tribes. A leadership and control unseen of amongst orc and goblin kind. His word became law, his name demanded obedience, his tribe a banner to follow.
Of late, Turrosh has taken elven captives and through means of torture and false promise, learned their elf tongue and glyphs. When finished with them, he discarded their lives to the wolf pits, much to the entertainment of his subjects.
He is know to have taken several mates and has spawned many, be wanting kin or captured slave, to ensure his blood populates his empire.
Tired of being surpressed, Turrosh has decided the time has come for a new rule for the lands within …and without.
