The Legendary 12
The ShadowHunt was a large military undertaking in the beginning of the Age of Fire, exactly 5 years after The Bloody War. Little is known about the exact methods or orders behind the ShadowHunt, and it is a little referenced part of Othyr’s past. The Shadowhunt was a systematic genocide of what might have been seen as, “dangerous” creatures and humanoids. Peaceable half-orcs, living in law-abiding Othyr cities were slaughtered unprovoked. Animals deemed to be “monstrous” were put down. This was an understandable undertaking after the prolonged and costly Bloody War, in a time when tensions between races were high and every single sentient being had right to fear for his or her safety. It was highly regrettable, however, and remains a dark stain on the history of Othyr.
