Campaign of the Month: April 2014
Orcs have long been a plague on Tyellador. From their home across the Eastern Sea, they sail, raiding, pillaging, and burning what they cannot take— but since the fall of the Second Great and Bountiful Human Empire, they have made their home in the Mizimînbad Mountains, and the once occasional threat, almost at the point of myth, has become a fearsome, constant menace.
Though popularly considered idiotic and unintelligent on an individual scale, in reality Orcs vary in intelligence almost as much as Humans do. The footsoldier, it is true, is not any great strategist. When a force of Orcs descend on a human settlement, however, the individual Orc’s brute violence and physical power often compensate for his or her lack of wit. The true Orc strategist is a terror to behold, as a warlord shapes the wild band of misfits into a troop able to obliterate any walled town.
Underestimate them at your peril.
