"Nine generations ago, the island of Betony was conquered by the Stonetooth Orcs, who renamed it Betnikh. A proud, self-reliant people, the Orcs fiercely protect their new home from incursion by outsiders."
―Betnikh Loading Screen[src]

Betnikh, also known as Betony, is an island that lies off the south coast of Glenumbra. Wrested from the Bretons by Orcs centuries ago, it is an easily defended island with high cliffs and rich farmland. Although Betnikh is a land of lush forest and cool breezes, there is talk of trouble with menacing, flying insects, as well as necromancy being practiced on the island.


"Steel and stone, how can you ask? High, defensible cliffs, a view of all approaches from the fortress, fertile land for crops - what's not to like? Yzzgol's wives insisted we settle here, so we did."
Rozag gro-Khazun[src]
