    Sure there will be, but how about something more exotic? Like poisoned swamp or plains with countless bones.

    Bloody dictator. I like it, though. :p
    Also some volcano-like zones? Maybe...

    Oh, yes! I think dangerous dark jungles with some sort of geyser fields and volcanos (like on Zerus from Starcraft II) will fit wild orcish tribes theme.

    Hey Brother , where's the legend you said to me last time , remember?

    I will not continue the progress until you give me the legend.

    Well, by small "legend" i meant something like this: (places and names are not final)

    Overview2.png

    Spires of Kerrak is a wasteland with weird looking spires of stone here and there. This scorched region lies between the Mountain and Lowlands. Here are some reference pictures for imagination. (something like Gorgrond in World of Warcraft)

    https://gnomecore.files.wordpress.com/2014/11/gorgrond.jpg
    http://www.gamegrin.com/assets/Uploads/_resampled/SetHeight518-Gorgrond-1.png

    Then we have those Lowlands, which are technicaly immense grassy plains like savannah, home to many savage beasts and predators.
    http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090128151019/wowwiki/images/8/88/Savannah_Patriarch.jpg

    Kor'gal is the swampy overgrowth we talked about. In the heart of The Overgrowth lies home of Kor'gal Clan (renamed Spiritar Clan). It is protected by many obstacles, one of them is river. I had an idea that Kor river could flow from the mountain and continue through Kor'gal. The river (Kor) source could be a huge waterfall, which would give us space to expand storyline.

    The mountain should not be that big and southeastern part will be a waterfall and hot springs region as i mentioned above. Im quite unsure about the western part. Maybe you could make it higher and the enterance into spiral shape. I'll send you my "vision" of western mountain side in pm.

    I think in the north-east of the map, in the Dread Fire clans lands must be smth like Asshai from Game of Thrones - a dark, grim, desolated valleys with bottomless yawning gulf etc.

    How would you call it and what special decorations should it contain to suit the terrain? Dead trees are okay, but it needs something really really unique like dense mist or somethin' :)

    Shadowlands, The Veil, Dreadlands, The Dread Approach, The Pit, The Dread Pit, The Rift, Gorge of Dread, Chasm of Shadow, Lair of Shadows

    They also use fel magic -> green flames. Dreadfire Clan's members wear skull masks and hold ritual sacrifices in their domain. They are also waging endless war with their neightbours the Skullcrush Clan, which was the main idea for their storyline. Skullcrush Clan's name might have come from their tradition of ritual in which their members must crush a skull of a random creature, but it can have also something in common with Dreadfire's skull masks. Any ideas?

    Can't you use a different waterfall that doesn't have those ugly waves? Ogre's water fall will fit there better.
