The land of the Brown Orcs, a stunted and ugly people, though they are Hnau. These primitives often contest the hunting lands of the Ice Falls Amear, though there is no trade and little communication between Amear and Ran. It is said the Ran name for Amear is “Svardalf”, or Dark Elf in what passes for language.
They have superior woodcraft, though they do not feel aghra. This does not mean they are not giften scouts and trackers. They are able to craft primitive bows, but they tend to use the javalin and spear in battle, much as Amear do. They have not yet mastered the art of metalworking with any skill, but as stonecrafters they know no equal save for Duargar. They are able to build clever homes and holds, and scouts who have seen thie land of Aran from the air report pathways made of crushed stone.
Brown Orcs are shorter than Amear on average, though they can grow to great size. They have light to dark brown skin, brown to black hair, and typically have brown or green eyes.
