“Orcs!”(or “Orks!” if you prefer.)
The very name instills fear in many a denizen of a fantasy world. Some may call them brutish, unintelligent and simply monsters. But Orcs often form their own societies (frequently not all that different in basic interaction from humans and others). On the battlefield, they make formidable opponents.
Here is a trio of Orc archers as example. Their large, muscular bodies allow them to wield very strong bows with proficiency.
wear an assortment of simple (some may say crude) clothing and armor
. Most is made from leather
, with some metal studding
. There are some bits of metal plate
incorporated into their outfits for added protection.
Their language may sound guttural and animal-like to many, but there is no doubt that there exists a developed intelligence behind their reddish eyes.
In most fantasy worlds
are treated simply as low level opponents. But some players choose to incorporate Orcs
into their parties of adventurers
as Player Characters
. Whatever your preference, Orcs
add to the spice of life in many fantasy role-playing games
and to the battlefields
of table top war games
including Warhammer Fantasy
