2. Brief History
Orcs are a violent, nomadic, and strong race. Their history is filled with wars, and most wars go on for centuries, even if the reason was forgotten.
Orcs are not present in the Saga of Ablution campaign.
3. Positives & Negatives
Orcs are a strong and rugged race. They have impressive strength and can easily hold their own in a fight. They

are also the fastest race in the orc racial family. 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.
Orcs benefit from bonuses of +30 to Melee Power, +20 to Throw Power, +10 to Critical Hit %, +1 to Battle Attack Actions, +1 to Reach (they have a reach range of 2 instead of 1), +20 to HP, and +25 to EP. They however are not as mentally strong as other races and therefore do not make great spell casters or scholars. Orcs serve best as warriors.
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. The actual orc have tanned skin and very little hair, except on their backs, chest, hands, and feet.
6. Living Habitat
Orcs are very nomadic, calling the open plains home.
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
Orcs 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 orc's enemy. If another person is respectful and helps the orc, the orc's friends, or family, then that person and his immediate family is considered a friend to the orc. Otherwise the orc thinks little of others, seeing most as insignificant and weak.
