For the faction in other games, see Stronghold.

Stronghold is a faction of nomadic orcs and beastmen based in the Sahaar desert.

Lore[]

Tribes of nomadic barbarians, Orcs are the scattered but proud survivors of a long history of persecution. They boast ranks of fierce warriors supported by powerful Shamans. Orcs prefer open skies and the freedom to move on when the urge takes them: many chose to lead a nomadic life in the dunes of the Sahaar desert.
