Orcs are the most common race to be defined as ‘Monsters’ by humankind. They are large, unintelligent creatures with skin tones ranging from grey to green. Orcs are a widespread race with a huge population, though the exact figure for this is unknown as they inhabit The Weald, a huge sprawling forest with unknown depths. The one Orcish city known to man is Ur-Gharod, though few have lived to tell the tale of it to others, and it is expected that there are many more settlements within the Weald.
It is understood that Orc tribes are constantly warring with one another over territories, as is the way of their God, Gruumsh, who revels in war and bloodshed. The Orc-King resides at Ur-Gharod, ruling over his armies and peoples with an iron fist, though the King is constantly changing due to the warring nature of Orcs. Currently the King is an Orc named Krug, and under his rule there has been an increase in attacks against human settlements in the Broken Kingdom such as Sholkstead and various surrounding villages.
