The Righteous Hand of Hextor
Since the start of the war the population of Half-Orcs on Elond has rocketed, this can be mainly attributed to the friendship between the Orcs of Grim-Moor and the Chaotic en of depravity that is La Broque, the human territory inside the forces of darkness.
Many would argue that given both their parents were likely Evil and sided with the Forces of Darkness why are Half-Orcs classed as Neutral.
In truth many Half-Orcs have also been found living in Droille the Neutral human lands where they are treated just as their human neighbours,
Half-Orcs who choose to remain with their Orc parent in Grim-Moor are much more likely to have joined the forces of darkness and are usually far more savage than the rest.
Quite a considerable number of Half-Orcs have found their way into the employ of the Thieves guild in Rochelle Coast and make their living as hired muscle, mercenaries and even pirates.
“These orc–human crossbreeds can be found in either orc or human society (where their status varies according to local sentiments), or in communities of their
own. Half-orcs usually inherit a good blend of the physical characteristics of their parents. They are as tall as humans and a little heavier, thanks to their muscle.
They have greenish or dusky pigmentation, sloping foreheads, jutting jaws,
prominent teeth, and coarse body hair. Half-orcs who have lived among or
near orcs have scars, in keeping with orcish tradition”
Whilst there is often a great deal of hostility towards Half-Orcs from the forces of light, they are protected from serious persecution by their Neutral status.
Most Half Orcs are either part of the forces of darkness or operate outside of the two armies however.
They claim not land as their own, but they are by far the largest population in Rochelle Coast and the have a noticeable presence in La Broque and Droille.
Having no God of their own they often pay lip service to the Gods of their parents or simply ignore religion.
This setting is removing the idea that Half-Orcs are created through sexual violence. They are created by two willing parents which is explained in the background material.
Naming conventions state that Half Orcs brought up in Orc territory or by an Orc parent will have Orcish names, but that Orcs who are brought up by human hands in human lands with have Human names.
Some Orcs change their Orcish names in order to fit in better in human society.
Orc and Human names can be found in the respective sections on this wiki.
