It was general anti-Goblinoid feeling, coupled with religious mania that resulted in the banishment of the Half-Orc population from Nuln, one of the Human settlements on the borders of the Old World. The Half-Orcs resented this very deeply.
Such a Half-Orc was Mudat Brokenbone. After spending several years organising the Half-orc Tonayl tribe (most of whom had turned to cattle rustling and ambushing travellers), Mudat put his new army into operation. With his warharnmer in his hand and revenge on his mind, he led the Tonayl horde against the town of Nuln. Resistance soon crumbled and the body of the unfortunate town champion was impaled on a pole, later becoming the regimental standard.
The Tonayls wandered the borders of the Dark Lands; fighting in a number of wars for both Orc and Human paymasters. Proving themselves to be unreliable and unscrupulous mercenaries in the best Half-Orc tradition. However, during the battle of Gonnear, after changing sides for the third time that day, Mudat was crushed by the infamous Goblin general Grom, 'The Paunch of Misty Mountain'. Their leader slain, the Tonayls dispersed into the wilderness under the command of the company Champion and paymaster Earwangle.
