Many of the caverns were huge, such as Arraggar, the home of around 60 orcs, and Oltho, where roughly 70 orcs lived. The Thousand Maws were a spiderweb network of tunnels which wove throughout the mountains. Many trails spanned the outer edges of the Maws, where the orc tribes posts scouts to watch the enemies or prey.
For years the orcs of the Thousand Fists tribe dwelt on the southern passes of the Nether Mountains and fought against the Ripped Gut orc tribe over control of Moon Pass. In 1372 DR, the Thousand Fists created an alliance with their rivals after the influence of a tanarukk emissary who was sent from Hellgate Keep.
