Aggressive and uncivilized

Orks are savage warriors with an uncivilized bent. They thrive in primitive lands, taking with force what they can from “weaker” peoples. Orks are longtime enemies of the elves, preferring to kill them when they can. Orks delight in slaughter and mayhem, and as such most orks are evil.

Orks stand about 7 feet tall with dark skin and short tusks.

Relationships with other races are generally strained, if not downright violent. Rarely, orks mate with humans and produce Halforcs.
