Described as the war to end all wars, the Battle of Nigrum Ursus pitted the united clans of the Doombringer Orcs led by Urzog the Conqueror against the Coalition Forces that include the Black Bear Clan from Nigrum Ursus, the Elon Devout from Elon, the holy fighters of Southwatch, the dwarves of the Hilthe Mountains, the Elves of the Talenth Forest, the Galadinthar Elves, the halflings of Odenburg, the human tribes of the Broken Tusks, and the warriors of Rothia.
The Doombringer Orcs engaged with a three-pronged attack; forces attacking the front gate;

The Coalition Forces divided up and fought off the terrible invaders at each location, quickly gaining the upper hand in the caves, a slight advantage at the rear gate, now breached, and are still fighting off waves of orcs at the front gate.
