The Center of the Human Lands is the tenth mission of the Orc campaign in Warcraft: Orcs & Humans.

Mission briefing

You have tasted victory, and the craving for more is upon you. It is clear that one decisive blow to the Humans will make the total and complete domination of this race a simple matter. Your spies have gathered intelligence that points to an encampment near the center of the Human lands where their knights and soldiers are sent to train. Although they will not be expecting an attack, they should prove a good fight. The destruction of this site would greatly weaken their forces, and etch your position as War Chief in stone. None shall survive!

The battle

In order to deal a crippling blow to the human defenders, the orcish Warchief sends an army to strike at an encampment where the Knights of Stormwind are sent to train.

The humans are caught by surprise and slaughtered, and the encampment destroyed.

This victory further solidifies Orgrim Doomhammer's position as Warchief and paves the way for the final assault into the human-defended lands.

The human encampment's location on the (orc campaign) in-game map places it in the south, between the Deadmines and Karazhan. Represented as a town or farmland with a large tower, it could refer to Raven Hill in modern Duskwood.
