Physical Description

Orcs typically stand over 6 feet tall and weigh from 140 to 290 pounds, with men noticeably taller and heavier than women. Their skin shades range from nearly blood red to mustard yellow, their hair is almost always black (curly, kinky, or straight), and their facial hair (for men) from sparse to thick.


Orcs are adapt at survival and adaption. Requiring even less food and water than a goblin an orc can survive in nearly any climate so long as it IS survivable. Orcs begin to adapt to their climate the moment they are placed into it. However, their survival is usually at the expense of another race. As such the orcs have waged wars with EVERY race at one time or another. There are two types of orcs that exist within the current world…

The “Broken Mountain” orcs are violent and easily offended. They are tribal and organized into many clans lead by war bosses and chieftains… It is said a single chieftain can call the orcs to war if their nation is in danger, but such an occurrence has not occurred in over 1,000 years. Though these orcs do not worship any god exclusively(Grumish is an idea!), these orcs do believe in a legend pertaining to a “Reshin Vey”, which translates to “Choosen one”. These orcs believe this “Choosen One” is perfect and will lead their kind in a time of great strife…

The “East Planes” orcs are a proud people who defy their own survival instincts… It is not entirely known why these orcs have defied their nature, but they are the most noble of their race and recognized by other races as being “friendly” for orcs… Their religion is also unique as they worship creatures of nature they deem worthy of their respect. Their are four main tribes of clans though some believe a fifth tribe exists… The four tribes are known as Bear, Wolf, Raven, and Antelope tribes… If their is a fifth tribe some believe this tribe has turned to the elements.

It should be known this tribe of orcs is responsible for the Content Not Found: drel-grek_, Content Not Found: bone-plate_, and Content Not Found: jade-weapons. These powerful weapons and armours have spread far and wide through the orc tribes… Their origins unknown…
