The Orc Wars was a period of almost continual warfare between 1900 AI and 1992 AI.

For nearly a century, Men, Elves and Dwarves fought the Orc hordes that came crashing out of Borias. The wars finally ended with the Battle of the Scarlet Plain in 1992 AI, when an alliance of Elves, Dwarves and Men defeated the last great horde of Orcs. After the battle, the Orcs splintered into a multitude of fractions that - although not to be taken lightly - would never again reach the sizes seen during the Orc Wars.

Another direct result of the Orc Wars were the founding of the Orc nations of Dhurak Nar, Narak Zagul and Nugar Karal in Alayte and Waeland.
