The Black Land Orcs

OrcsAncient Elf writings tell of a race that raised itself from out of the mire. These green abominations soon infested the lands, only to foul them wherever they appeared with blood and slaughter.

The green vermin showed no regard or respect for the oldest races, such as the Elves and the Dwarves.

Before the Orcs came, some even believed and hailed the ancient ones to be Gods. All that would come crashing down as soon as this new menace challenged their supremacy.

These green upstarts were even directly responsible for knocking the so called gods off their pedestal, and forever ending their Golden Age!

As the Elves and Dwarves fell in battle at the hands of this new green menace, the rest of the new races saw that their Gods were in fact mortals just like them.

One by one the new races denounced their masters and left their sides forever to follow their own path, which enraged the ancient Elves.

The sackers of the Elf's and Dwarf's Golden Age had gone by many curses, but it was the slur of 'ORC', which these vile creatures became known by all.

In old Dwarfish 'Orc' means 'Vandal'. Far from being seen as an insult, the green skins embraced this new title with pride, as it embodied their very essence.  

Orc SlingersThe average Orc has a long thick trunk, short legs and stands nearly as tall as a human. They have a green muscular body, held upright by thick strong bones, which altogether makes for a remarkably robust body. In fact, Orcs have been known to take up to five arrows before falling in battle.

The Orc’s resilience to starvation is also worth noting, as they can easily go for days without even feeling the need to eat. This quality even saved them from being totally exterminated long ago.

When Orcs do eventually feed, they are not fussy eaters at all. They will quite happily devour raw flesh, bones and most forms of rubbish, even animal waste... When pickings are especially slim, they will devour their slaves and if need be, they will even turn on each other in the end.

Indeed, the average Orc has a strong body, savage killer instincts and a slow metabolism, making them good, strong and hardy foot soldiers, both on and off the battlefield.

On the other hand, the common Orc has a simple wit. They struggle with the finer points of language and most of the other basic mental tasks that the other races of 'Many' take for granted.

Luckily for these dim-witted creatures they have very intelligent and devious Mothers, known as 'Iron Maidens', who lead their broods into battle.

Iron Maiden

In Orc society, simple that it is, the Orc Females, also known as Snortmaidens, are highly regarded and are the unquestionable rulers of their kind.These cunning females more than make up for their male subordinates' lack of intelligence, and have even been known to outwit the odd Elf General in battle.

Snortmaidens are nowhere near as numerous as male Orcs. For every one thousand Orc males born, there is only one Snortmaiden birthed. However a single Snortmaiden can easily birth tens of thousands of Orc Grunts and Bulls in her lifetime, who are all loyal to their Ma.

Snortmaidens are constantly pregnant, having a litter of roughly a hundred every week. When born, an Orc is only the size of your fist, but grows extremely quickly becoming an adult after only two high moons.

When the little Ritches grow up, the greatest of all of them fight and kill each other for the right to sire the next generation's batch. These Orcs are not your average green skins. They are known as Bulls and they are much bigger, stronger and tougher that a normal Orc Grunt is.

Some Bulls grow so large that they are similar looking to Ogres in stature and size. They have even been known to pick on and kill Ogres and bring their heads to a Snortmaiden, as a trophy to prove their worth as a mate.

As simple as Orc Bulls or Grunt’s thoughts are, there is one thing they love to occupy themselves with, and that is battle.

Orcs often dream of savagely killing an opponent in combat with their bare hands to prove themselves worthy of their caravan.

Orc Chariot of War

So when Orcs march to war, they are never happier! They will ecstatically sing and even dance with the thought of cutting and hacking their foes to pieces on the battlefield.

Orcs will even feast upon their enemies' carcasses after a battle. They don't do this because they are hungry, but because they believe it is the ultimate way of insulting an enemy and stealing their power.

Orc warfare favours fighting on foot, as they are too stout to mount themselves on most steeds.  Instead, they use heavy iron chariots in war, to devastating effect.

Orcs are a cruel and a very ruthless race; a life of pain and misery is the only fate a captured Orc Prisoner can expect. They will either become a slave, or are kept as livestock for consumption.

It really is better for a warrior fighting against the Orcs to die in battle or fall on their own swords, rather than being captured by the green skins.

Orcs largely depend on their slaves to build their war machines or any other more complex devices they may need. Although, forced labour does come at a price. Orcs war machines can suffer from sabotage. The culprits are their ill treated slaves, who are just trying to find any way to rebel against their harsh green overlords.  

An Orc war band, though a little unpredictable, is a thing of brute force, which kills and eats it way across the world of Many.

The Orcs will usually rely on their sheer weight of numbers and thuggish strength to subdue their opponents. However, there's more to these green thugs than just their might. They can field very strong infantry, chariots and monsters too in battle.

Orc Magic is also quite potent, with all Iron Maidens being accomplished dark magic casters, and they are supported by their blue crazy magical sisters, the Hags.

To underestimate the green horde in battle, is to end up being their next meal.

Product Information
File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
