Mind, Spirit and Blood
To those of Sentata, I give you the Hills and the Mountains. You shall find safety in them, but also riches. Sentata's fury is in all of you, but he shall teach you to focus it. And you guard those who cannot guard themselves.
Book of Life 12:07
Orcs are characterised by their facial tusks and their callused knuckles. On average they seem to have a greater strength than other races, but truly sets them apart is the Fury. The Fury has been described by many as being less a rage, more determination.
The Orcs have long been a martial peoples. Whether this is due to the Fury within them or outside influence has long been up for debate. Historically even neutral orc states have happily hired out mercenaries out to others.
