The Black Legion
Ork common traits
|Loathsome and Twisted||Orcs are repellent, even to their own kind, and especially to Elves, Men and Dwarves. Their body is bent and squat, with ugly, long arms and sickening charred flesh: Orc stat maximums are straight 8s.|
|Fanged and Clawed||The mouth of an Orc is a violent organ, well suited to tearing flesh and shouting blasphemies. Orcs may use their Fanged Maw as a weapon when in the “inside arms reach” fighting distance. The bite is a Power 1, Slow, VA 1, Add 2, Shortest length weapon. Claws like steel shards protrude from their gnarled fingers. They may be used as a weapon: Power 1, Fast, VA—, Add 2, shortest length. They act like a knife for purposes of positioning and fighting distance.|
|Cold Black Blood||The substance of night runs through their veins. Orcs suffer +2 Ob to all tests while abroad in the sunlight. If it is cloudy, dawn or twilight, the penalty is only +1 Ob.
Orcs black blood serves them as well as hurts them.
Cold Black Blood reduces Hesitation obstacles by 2 for all conditions except fear and surprise.
|Cannibals – So vile are they, Orcs will not hesitate to slay and eat their companions.|
|Lynx-Eyed, Like Burning Coals||An Orks eyes glow red with the inner fire of hatred and despise. Orcs can see clearly in darkness and shadows. (They never suffer a penalty for such conditions.)|
|Breeders||Though they loathe life and yearn for death, Orcs are compelled by their accursed nature to procreate often and quickly.|
|Vile Language||Orcs speak a special language of shadow, chill and blight. They share this tongue with corrupt vermin, Great Wolves, Trolls, certain Great Spiders and shades.|
