Lasting from 854-855 the Orcrising War was started when the tribes of the Clarion Mountain orcs were united under Chiefton Garak of the Stone Smasher Orcs. The united tribes marched out of the mountains and sacked Clarion and proceeded to maraud north along the mountain lines, defeating the Red Dragon Army at each battle. Finally after the winter snows melted the orcs attacked Alaronda itself. There the Red Dragon Army led into battle by King Aaron I himself defeated Garak and his horde. King Aaron died of injuries sustained in that battle. After the death of Garak the tribes split and fled for their mountain homes.
