are natural mountain climbers and have a good tolerance to the cold. They are also the only orc race to have any natural armor, their thick hair. However they are very quick to anger. They also have no concern for politeness and tact which often puts them at odds with other races.
Yeti benefit from bonuses of +30 to Melee and Throw Power, +10 to Critical Hit %, +20 to HP, +1 to Attack Actions, +1 to Reach (they have a reach range of 2 instead of 1), and + 25 to EP.

Yeti have a penalty of -5 from Initiative and -15 to Evade. Like all orc races, Yeti are not as mentally strong as other races and therefore are best suited to being a warrior instead of a scholar or spell caster.
In the Saga of Ablution campaign, yeti have a penalty of -15 to their chance for casting stable magic.
Orcs have two cycles in their extremely short life span. The first stage, which last from birth until 9 is their childhood. During this stage they are completely dependent upon their clan, as the entire orc clan helps out with the children. They will learn skills needed for survival in this stage, as well learn what it means to be an orc.
The second stage, which last from 10 until their death, is their adulthood. They still usually stay part of the clan, unless it is decidedly better for them to go off on their own. Death is met with open arms as orcs long to be with their ancestors.
All orcs are generally tall, large, rarely fat. Yeti have thick hair that covers their entire body except their face and the palms of their hands and soles of their feet. They have a uni-brow over their eyes. Their hair color is typically white however brown, black, and red are possible colors.
6. Living Habitat
Yeti dwell within the mountains and high plains of Nor'Ova, and are nomadic.
7. Food & Sleeping Requirements
Orcs will eat anything they can find or catch, and require at least 2 meals a day. They must sleep a full night’s cycle every night or suffer from fatigue (-5 from endurance per missed hour).
All orcs have a similar culture. They are typically all nomadic and have a very barbarian lifestyle. They are polytheistic worshiping gods of power and brutality.
Orcs of any kind do not use a last name. All orcs of any orc race only have one name, which often sounds primitive and guttural to other races.
9. Racial Relations
Yeti don't relate to other races as other races. Instead they relate on an individual basis. If the other person has wronged them, a friend of theirs, or their family, that other person and his immediate family becomes the yeti's enemy. If another person is respectful and helps the yeti, the yeti's friends, or family, then that person and his immediate family is considered a friend to the yeti. Otherwise the yeti is indifferent towards others.
