Inspiration

A classic fantasy creature.

Settings

Orcs are mostly seen in fantasy settings, but are adaptable into almost any setting by equipping them accordingly.

Basic Information

Orcs are aggressive scavengers and opportunistic carnivores (with a taste for both in-species cannibalism and human flesh). While possessing a low cunning and crude culture of their own, they are generally portrayed as a subject race used as soldiers (or battle fodder) by beings of greater power and intelligence. There are exceptions, as orcs sometimes have cunning leaders of their own species. Violent by nature, they will fight ferociously if compelled or directed by a guiding will, but tend towards more chaotic behaviour (including cowardice) if left to their own devices. They often use boars, wolves, wargs, and other unusual beasts for battle transport.

Visual Description

Orcs are generally ugly and filthy, with prominent fangs and facial features tending toward the grotesque (generally a mixture of the ape-like and pig-like). Their skin is typically a shade of green, grey, black, brown, or sometimes red or sandy tan.

Orcs as a Playable Race

Might and Fortitude are the favored attributes of an orc. Orcs are rarely considered a playable race, while half-orcs are more popular. This page offers considerable detail for those that want to create an orc or half-orc character. Picking perks and flaws based on the information above is a great way to get started.
