Before there were Humans, Orcs and Dragons coexisted peacefully. But now the peace has been shattered and the balance of power has shifted. The Orc's have exploited all of the natural recourses in their dominion but they discovered a new type of combustible fuel, - the mana contained in Dragon flesh. While Dragons had coexisted with the Orcs peacefully for centuries, small groups of Orcs are attacking lone Dragons with alarming regularity. In the beginning they tended to pray on the young, the old, or the sick. The Orcs have now become ruthless in their quest for last few remaining dragons.
