Orcs can naturally amass muscle quicker and easier than other races. This allows a character to deal +1 Damage with all melee attacks.

This stacks with Strength Rush and Incredible Strength.

Orcs live much of their life near coasts or aboard ships and so have a natural aptitude for fishing.

Orc History

Orcs are a green-skinned race, but they are certainly not reptilian. Their origins are unclear due to their lack of written history. The Orcs are renegades and scavengers. Their mighty fleets of long-ships have caused problems for nearly every other seafaring race. They are feared by isolated coastal towns that are constantly in danger of being sacked and plundered by these fearsome people. Their chaotic and sometimes barbarous nature has prevented them from being accepted by the other dominant societies. No one has ever been able to maintain any sort of treaty with the Orcs, so they are mostly left out of world politics. The Orcs, however, don’t seem to mind.
