The Lament of a Broken Youth is the story of an orcish tribe, set shortly after the events of Act II of The Three Warlocks.

The son of a tribal Chieftain finds himself responsible for preventing his tribe's destruction when he kidnaps the wrong person.


Markusei Darkorh, an orc on the verge of adulthood, must weather the hatred of his tribe towards his hostage, for her death will ensure the tribe's destruction at the hands of warlocks: Necromancers who will go to any length to save Markusei's hostage. Can Markusei prevent the members of his tribe from killing his captive? Can he get her away from the tribe before warlocks track them down and kill them? Find out in this tale of familial hardship, generations of hatred, and factionalism, inspired by Spaghetti Westerns.

The Setting
