Named after an orc captain that heroically died while serving the Covenant, Grashakh is a region of middle Brucrumus. Surrounded by mountains and great cliffs in the southwest, it is a land of high-elevation cities.
The western edge of this land is a mountain range called Giant Steps. In the Titan Era, these ice-capped peaks were home to the Glangveif, a frost giant empire of such might that only other Titan Empires dared contest it.
Between the area's ten mountainous parts are vast grasslands, one pitted with cavities plunging into the Underdark, dreary cold swamps, great lakes, fast rivers, and deep forests. Except for the Vigath-Mazgob Canal, all the region's great waterways flow south.
In the Second Epoch, orcs under an ageless leader marched north into this region. In what became known as the Arduous March (1041 - 1096), they carved out a new living space. These orcs, so different than your normal orcs, are the Githirmil. Most of them are citizen-soldiers of the Orchish Empire.
Beneath Grashakh is the Underdark region Imgangreth.
