“The Orcs” is an innumerably large body of humanoids that make up the Orcish Clans. Orcs are pastoral nomads that live in the deserts in the southern part of the Shea peninsula. Very little is known about the Orc “hordes” other than they are at constant war with one another and that the weakest tribes are pushed north. Legends say that once the entire continent was ruled by a powerful Orc Khan and that one day another Great Horde would raise and mow down the races of Elves, Dwarfs and Humans.
The Orcs are patterned from the Mongols of about the 11th century. They are mounted archers and pastoral nomads. Like Halflings Orc’s preferred mounts are riding lizards, although the breed the Orc’s use is substantially larger then those ridden by the halflings.
Although Orcs are not available as a player character race they have been assigned the Primal and Martial Power Sources.
