In the Year 1400, the Orchish Empire went to war with the city-state Korbortun. The Fograth planned to annex the city-state and begin taking territory east of the Dargirth. The orcs were met with horse archers and fast-moving light troops that kept up continuous pressure on them. They were unable to secure a concentration of force on the river's eastern banks. After five months of conflict, the Fograth called off the invasion.
