High Fantasy 101
Orks are no fun, unless you love being hacked to pieces. Some claim that orks and goblins are the same race; they do speak the same rough tongue and are often found together. Like goblins, orks despise sunlight and shun the day, hating daylight even more than their scrawny cousins. Unlike goblins, they tend to be not just disagreeable but more warlike than almost any other intelligent race (to stretch the term “intelligent”). An ork is never without his axe or sword. The main goal of any given ork generally seems to be either the death of his foes or power over his fellows. Female orks exist but are best not mentioned.
Orks have little in the way of population centers, as far as anyone else is aware. They show up in significant numbers both in northern Vannes and west of the dead forest, and some orks tend to lurk around the Zwergbergen and other points north.
