Those fabulous Tolkien orcs. Nasty and ugly – although there is a 'pretty' version (cause the GM just can't seem to draw them ugly enough). They are greenish people with horns. They tend to rule by violence and fighting.
They measure importance in society by 'Skai' - your level of power, your caliber. Through struggle, skill and the kill - they put food on the table and worth in their souls.
Orcs are perversions of elves, and can live forever (but hardly ever reach beyond a couple of thousand). They come of age at 11 - although that is hardly ready.
Languages: Orcish, Common
Cast Iron Stomach - can eat most any food without getting sick.
Orcs tend to dislike sunshine and tend to be violent.
