In Hinterland: Orc Lords, the king has charged you with taming a wild territory of his realm by building a prosperous town and conquering all enemy sites in the region. You must bring a diverse cast of followers to your settlement, and then carefully select members of your village to join you on expeditions of exploration and conquest in the surrounding lands. There, you will encounter the characters and creatures of myth and folklore, and find much needed resources to expand your village, from iron to make weapons to a mystic tome to entice a great mage to join you. Should your forays meet with success, fame, fortune and prosperity await. But you must take care, for even the loss of a lowly farmer can spell disaster at harvest time.
