Orcs are a race of green skinned humanoids who are not only strong but nimble at the same time. All orcs have tusks and long, pointy green ears, usually wearing a mix of hide, bones, and furs. Most orcs are nomadic, belonging to the Grand Caravan which travels the Old World in search of trading and grazing ground. They are known to be the best horse riders and animal breeders in the entire world. Orcish horses are sought after by kings and emperors for their cavalry. For a large portion of history, orcs were know to be bloodthirsty and savage creatures, who formed great hordes to conquer lands to loot and pillage. Led for a time by a great leader, called the Andakhan, they formed a great empire and conquered large swaths of the world. This did not last long, and he mysteriously died, leaving the empire in ruins.
From the ruins, came a great seer named Markhar, the first Dreamseer, that the orcs must abandon their bloodthirsty nature, and the death of the Andakhan was divine wrath. From then on, they have been attempting to go against their nature, and have embraced peace, inner calm, music, art and more.
It is not unheard of to see an Orc who decides to split off from the Caravan and live in a nation, especially the Shire of Barleybuck who have taken a liking to the orcs, who ignore what their past was and accept them as what they are now.
Orcs are naturally agile, and expert hunters. They believe that one must use every piece of a creature in order to appease the soul of the animal. They also believe that they were created by both Stalk and Solace in tandem, which explains why they are such brutish, strong, and dexterous but also calm, logical and caring. It is this balance which they seek to continue and maintain.
