The Ogre Steps are a series of mesas northwest of the Gwaeldior Forest. They are named for the many Toomrur tribes that came here in the Horgon Era. Between 1600 HG to 1700 HG, they migrated west out of Hiznaar Goz, laying claim to lands far from any civilization. The Toomrur came to be leaders of the area's hill giants, cave trolls, and goblins. They have camps and bastions scattered across the area's looming mesas. Some are honeycombed out, with populations nearing the size of small towns.
The people of the Ogre Steps have long warred with the firbolg of Naggors Retreat. The only time that they have not was when a charismatic leader named Naggor Stormhand united them in great raiding parties. He took these warbands against the holds of Strumpktar, Celebriän, and others. When Naggor left for the Lands of Purity, the fighting between the Firbolg and Toomrur renewed.
The goblins of this area tend bee vast colonies. They harvest the honey as a food source and export product. It is not uncommon to see goblins soaring over the flowering steppes mounted on giant bumble bees.
