Regent is the first mission of the Human campaign in Warcraft: Orcs & Humans. In this mission, an unnamed regent is asked to construct a small outpost and defeat local orcish patrols scattered in the area.

Mission briefing

As a test of your abilities, the King has appointed you as Regent over a small parcel of land. Since we must keep our armies in the field well supplied, you are to build the town into a farming center of no less than 6 farms. Construction of a barracks for defense is also advised, as our scouts have reported Orc patrols in the area.


The human regent and his troops began the construction of six farms and a barracks as ordered by King Llane. While constructing these buildings, the humans encountered orcish grunts and spearmen who were scouting out the nearby lands. Minor skirmishes ensued between human footmen and the orcish scouts. Searching out the renegade orcs, the humans managed to defeat all of the orcish patrols in the area.
