Crows on the Skulls
Orcs of Aeolis
Orcs on Ayodya have a much larger civilization compared to other worlds. Gruumsh’ victory over Corellon in particular was a turning point in Orcish History. Once they turned the tide against their ancient enemies Orcs amassed and drove the elves into a permanent retreat. Never again would they hope to stand against them.
This was a golden era for evil races. Though they still had strong enemies such as Dwarves and Humans the majority of the main continent, Aeolis, was theirs. Orcs built huge cities and mastered forging techniques and animal-domestication.
While not geniuses Orcs are not far below the average human in intelligence. They are tough, ruthless, bloodthirsty and aggressive. Qualities that make them a scourge on the battlefield but do not make it easy for them to live peace. Their stubborn, violent natures lead to constant in-fighting and competition.
