Extra Facts


Orcs are the sworn enemies of elves and dwarves, and therefore, their half-breed cousins have little success when interacting with these races. In fact, many races regard any orc relation with contempt, and so a half-orc has to work hard to be accepted outside of an orc camp. Some attempt to put on shows of piety and devotion, while others seek to stay unnoticed and reserved, that they might carry their lives out in peace. Often, of course, a half-orc will simply be so tough that others are forced to accept them.


Half-orcs tend towards chaos, much like their orcish kin, however, their human blood pushes them towards good and evil in equal measure. Often, those who willingly stay in orcish encampments will err to the side of evil, while those with a good alignment find it easier among civilisation.


A half orc chooses a name that helps him make an impression that he wants to make. If his goal is to fit among humans he would choose a human name. If he is aiming to intimidate others he chooses a guttural orc name. As a half orc raised by humans he is normally given a name but can change it if he chooses once he is from his hometown. But some halforcs are not bright enough to choose a name this carefully.

Orc Male Names: Dench, Feng, Gell, Henk, Holg, Imsh, Keth, Krusk, Ront, Shump, Thokk

Orc Female Names: Baggi, Emen, Engong, Myev, Neega, Ovak, Ownka, Shautha, Vola, Volen


Many half-orcs living amongst humans are put to work in some of the more violent professions, where their natural strength is put to good use. They naturally fins themselves rubbing shoulders with adventurers, often wanderers and outcasts themselves.
