During Orgrim Doomhammer's assault on the elven kingdom, a small band of orcs broke off from the main invading force and attacked the town of Blackwood, on the shores of Blackwood Lake. Baron Garithos marshaled his subjects to defend the town, but they were all slain by the orcish forces. Though the burning of Blackwood had marginal strategic effect on the Second War, it carried a lasting impact on the baron's son Othmar Garithos, who was stationed in Quel'Thalas at the time and blamed the elves for his family's death.
