Orcs are a humanoid race of exceptional strength but limited intelligence.

The orcs predominantly worship the savage gods and revere Korbog as their war-patron. The frequent communication of the savage gods with their shamans in the tongue known as "bloodspeak" means that while the orcs possess an enormous multitude of tribal languages they can communicate with each other relatively easily, facilitating the rapid development of warhosts on a planetary or interdimensional scale.

Though most orcs exist in a state of slavery, barbarity or second-class citizenship in more civilized societies, the Orcish Directorate is a beacon of discipline and orcish ascendancy.
