THE ORCISH WARLORD LURTZ ARGON

APPEARANCE - BIOGRAPHY - IMPORTANCE - TIME TABLE

Lurtz Argon was the great step-son of the well respected elder Ya-Sha-La of the Har'Ma'ku orc clan. He was actually born in 1664 b.S, into a very rich and powerful clan of Ashz-Oc tribe. Lurtz was also the greatest Warlord that represented the Har'Ma'ku clan, which ulitmately belonged to the Ashz-Oc orcs. Out of the hundreds and hundreds of Ashz-Oc clans, the Har'Ma'kul were among the strongest, and had the strongest ties with most other great clans. Lurtz led most of the attacks eventually causing the end of the Mynian Kingdom.

Appearance. It is said that Lurtz liked to grow his hair around the front face. He kept a little goatee and grew his hair down along the sides of his face. A scar was clearly visible on the right side of his face, it was said that he kept a scar for every battle he won, whether the battle had brought the scar or his own knife did. His ears stuck out pointy like elven ears, yet not as far, they were mostly shrouded by his hair. His body had good muscle definition, with his biceps, triceps, and calf muscles clearly visible. The cloths he wore were among the most colorful. A beautiful array of green, red, brown, black and other colors were said to be worn over his armours. Return to the top

Biography. Like at many other orcs, not much is known about the time in Lurtz' life before he became prominent at the battlefield.

Lurtz first proved his great skills in the battle at the Prominent Mountains, leading an army of approx. 3000 orcs to the plains near the Mynian territory. Negotiators tried to talk the Mynians to a truce but the Mynians declared war. The set of 20 orcish negotiators and about 60 warlords around them were being slayed by thousands of Mynians (approx. 20,000 men). About a dozen warlords came up dead from that attack. Lurtz then came up the end of the plain with around 3000 of his orcs. Attention was drawn towards them and then the other 2000 came up from under the dirt and thus a smaller portion of the battle began. They demanded a truce once more but a battle raged on. Several other warlords fell but Lurtz hung on. He returned to his men and gathered one more attack.

It is told that Lurtz fended the Mynians greatly for a very long battle. His troops were dwarfed in numbers, though his mission was to fight until the rest of the Ashz-Oc arrived. The other orcs finally came through and the battle began in earnest. 20,000 of the Ashz-Oc orcs had come to do battle with the Mynian Kingdom, along with around 60 other warlords. After a long day of blood-spill the Mynians began to retreat.

Lurtz was awarded the title of Warlord for he kept most of the ranks of Mynians away from the main force of orcs until further support arrived. Other warlords such as U'di'k, and Val'ral were also noted for there great deeds in fending off the Mynians with such great leadership and tactics.
