Orcs are not monogamous, so theoretically orc is able to have several wives. But practically one can't find such family - orcs explain that it's hard to cope even with one woman of orcs. Other races think that orcs use battle axes in quarrels.

Age of Heroes IV: The story

Elves lost their war.

Their forests were burnt, the Great Tree, cut by orcs' axes, have been dying slowly. The few, who survived, run with their god to other world through the portals opened by priests, and those who didn't want to run, covered their leaving brothers retreat, and fought in their final battle on the ashes of holy groves.

Only six of them left, when the portals closed forever, – six of the best warriors and magicians, leaded by queen's sister, distraught with grief and rage. Leaving behind heaps of dead orcs' bodies, they retreated to vaults under the Holy Forest – to ancient elven necropolis, and rained down doorways on the heads of their pursuers.

And they stayed alone without any food and water, doomed to slow death. The magic of elven gone god have been abandoning their bodies and souls, leaving only wrenching emptiness.

Two days they wandered in catacombs, among tombs, bones and ancient dust. They were led by revenge lust and Thialin's vision - elven queen's sister and the last great priest – keened by centuries of magician practice, this vision showed her the source of power, hidden in the depths of necropolis.

On the second day, when they walk through the graves of elven kings and priests, through caves and ruined gnomes' tombs, they reach corridors didn't seen by anyone for a thousands of years. Here, among the crypts of the race – so ancient that time didn't saved their name, in the tunnels excised by signs of unknown language, they saw a temple.

It's halls kept signs of cruel battle, and in the center stood columns, covered with glowing symbols. Here they found water, and for three days more Voledar – expert of ancient texts, have been reading to his friends Book of Emptiness; with his every word fallin g into the darkness, hope was leaving elves.

They've got to know about the nation, betrayed by it's own gods, the race, drawn its magic from indifferent emptiness lying outside the death.

And they've got to know of Ritual.

Till this moment the magic completely left them and the power of the Great Tree flew out of their bodies along with life, as from cracked pitcher. Deep, under masses of rocks and tombs of their kings, six elves held their final council of war. They spoke for a long time, but then they were silent much longer – because the decision was made and only the one step left.

The first was Thialin – and the arches of the temple shook with the sound of ancient prayer, and the dust rose above altars. One after another they repeated words letting death enter the living soul – and killed themselves in the hall with columns, keeping the secret.  With the last of them, all sounds left from crypts, and above, in the forests the frame of the Great Tree shook – because there were no Children of the Tree in the world anymore, and spirits of the last ones were walking now through bloody emptiness of Ritual.

Three days more they were dead – and then they rose.
