World of Tharyg: the Sionilli Peninsula
Winter Bear is a recently settled permanent settlement on the northern coast of the Astral Ocean on the fringes of the Glitteren Mountains. Its’ inhabitants are a formerly nomadic tribe of Barbarian Half-Orc females. As Nomads the tribe was known as Snow Bear, Blood Bear, and finally Winter Bear. The Half-Orc tribe had been on the brink of decimation on numerous occasions; because of attacks from Orc tribes in the Northern Glitteren Mountain range. Orcs have continuously attacked and killed all male members of the tribe. The War-Chief of Blood Bear began a decades-long tradition of counter attacking the Orc population and conscripting its males in procreation by rape. The newest War-Chief has recently entered a treaty with the Quorum of Aeroven that outlaws the rape of Orcs and allows for the tribe to permanently settle on the coast. Orcs are still very much hated by the tribe as it tries to rebuild itself once again. Warning: it is dangerous for most species of males to approach near Winter Bear. Halflings are accepted as a type of pet.
