Ormyrban was built by the Orm Tribe, a Pictian/Sacen tribe which migrated to Sudbaya in 3E3750. A monolith was errected on the banks of the river Orm, to worship Ormyr, the King of the Nyrdic Pantheon, and served as a gathering place for all the early Sudbayan tribes during certain festivals. This gathering point correlates with the massive trade port that Ormyrban is today. The present day Temple of Ormyr is built on the same location as the original monolith, and is said to house the monolith , though it is larger than the entire settlement which originally surrounded the monolith. The temple itself has been rebuilt on several occasions, along with large portions of the Temple district. This is due to great fires, and millitary occupations which Ormyrban has suffered over the years.
