Tales of Viridia
Orcs are a cunning people, who by and large live to fight. They respect strength, in their society the weak end up subservient or dead, the mighty are respected and followed. Orcs hail from the Plains of Mauhulakh in the eastern continent. In their ancestral homeland they have a thriving civilisation, and many times in history they have surged forth in huge numbers, conquering vast areas. Each time, the death of the leader has caused the campaign to fracture from infighting, and they have been beaten back. Many of the scattered Orcs remain behind to form small camps and villages. A rare few Orcs even integrate themselves into other (mostly human) societies when the memory of the bloodshed has faded somewhat.
Orcs vary quite wildly in appearance. Their skin ranges from grey to brown to green, many have a prominent underbite and have varying sizes of tusks. Some have curled horns on the sides of their heads. On average, they can reach around 7 feet tall.
