Long ago The Black Scorpions Tribe was well known at Heart Mountains as followers of the cruel and malevolent god Jtesсh. Later faith in the snake goddess Shissat began to spread among the orcs. As her followers preached survival at all costs, while scorpion god called for the extermination of the weak by the strong, the conflict was inevitable. During bloody religious war, the priests of Jtesch and Shissat fought, and the latest have won in the end, as the Great and Vast Empire backed them. Scorpion priests were exterminated and their temples were burnt. Since then, the cult of Jtesch became religion of dissent. Via adoption of the scorpions' tradition orces of small tribes expresing their protest against hegemony of the Empire.
