Orcs worship Gruumsh, the one-eyed god of slaughter,
and are savage, bloodthirsty marauders. They plague the
civilized races of the world and also fight among themselves
for scraps of food and treasure. They love close combat and
plunge furiously into the thick of battle, giving no thought to
retreat or surrender.
Within what passes for orc society, there are orcs that fill
special roles. Eyes of Gruumsh are orcs with a special connection
to their fierce god. They offer sacrifices, read omens, and
advise the tribe’s chieftain of Gruumsh’s will. Orc bloodragers
are tribal champions feared for their strength and ferocity,
and they also make excellent subchiefs or bodyguards.
Orcs often fight alongside ogres, and they can be coerced
or bullied into serving any dark overlord or wicked monster
powerful enough to command their obedience.
