Noted Lore: - According to the orcs, Burnisuld was the third being ever created. Nubierd was the first, having created the world. Nubierd then created Thornsaldsarn, but grew bored with only one entity and subsequently created the orcs. Thornsaldsarn, hurt by Nubierd's rejection, created Burnisuld as a companion. After traveling together for many years, Burnisuld grew tired of Thornsaldsarn as well, and rallied the orcs to drive Thornsaldsarn away once more.
Conventional lore: - Burnisuld is generally recognized as being an actual deity that participated in several orcish wars against the giants. It is also believed that he is a regular patron of orcish warlocks.
