Orexia is an obscure vestigial survivor of the former
Anatian Empire which dominated the Westlands before 800 BE. The Orexics
are known for their gaunt, half-starved appearance. Neighboring Miznia
on its extreme southern border,
Orexia never owed Quendor more than nominal allegiance, Duncanthrax
being too unwilling to combat the diseases and dangers of the swamp in
reach Orexia itself.
Since the beginning of the Enchanters Guilds, the only contact that Orexics have ever had
with the outside world have been through the omnipresent reach of the magic
guilds, whose numerous branches reach even into that obscure southern region.
About 956 GUE, the Great Terror, choose the nearby ruins of Dolo Finis in Miznia for its habitation. There
and gained strength while its influence crept slowly and inexorably
world, corrupting all it touched. Soon the country succumbed entirely
to the oppression of the Great Terror. In the days just before the
collapse of the First Age of Magic (966 GUE), the Great Terror was
defeated by a young enchanter Anesi and his companions, thus freeing
Orexis from its strangling grip.
