Keepers of the New Age
Orcs are a violent and bestial race that once dominated humankind in Euron’s ancient days. The Imperium has long since wiped out much of the troublesome orcish population in Euron, leaving only scattered and diminutive tribes throughout the northern reaches of the continent. Despite this, there are still great concentrations of them in the savage places of the world, particularly in Skarn and Uthrei.
Half-orcs are orc-human hybrids, usually the product of rape by marauding orcish tribes. They are relatively uncommon in the Imperium’s central provinces, but they are seen somewhat often the closer one gets to the Imerium’s borderlands.
Half-orcs face a hard life if they plan on living it within Imperial law, as the humans of the Imperium generally view them as little more than animals, a degenerate sub-species worthy of disdain and slavery. As a result, most half-orcs turn to a life of crime, plunder, or piracy. Many harbor great hatred for other humanoids, particularly humans – and even for themselves.
