The Fallen Pillars
Unsurprisingly, Orcs live short and hard lives, albeit with a very intricately developed culture focussed on pragmatism, respect and strength.
Despite outwardly appearing savage, most Orcs are well educated in philosophy and natural study with a deceptively strong tradition storytelling to facilitate knowledge sharing and foster debate.
Over the ages, the Orcs have developed a partnership with the Dust Elves, forming an amazingly potent alliance of equals in the Eastern regions of Nosgoth. Here, despite being the magical and technological inferiors of the alliance, they make up for it by being the numerical, physical and spiritual betters.
Alignment and Religion
However, some tribes choose to worship the Goddess of Fire, and as such are considerably more aggressive and expansionist, often becoming the primary example of Orcs amongst other races despite being the minority. As a result, these tribes are treated cautiously by other more conservative Orc tribes.
