What's the ideal way to portray orc society?
>>
>>78421943
angry big muscular green rapists. their own women are incredibly ugly and butch so they regularly raid human and elven lands for more attractive females. their whole society is based around getting laid especially with an elven or human woman.

Orcs are large barbarian beast men with mutated hog heads. They don't have a "society", as they are often made and rallied together by some sort of sorcerer, necromancer, or powerful evildoer. The closest thing they have to any sort of "culture" is their hierarchy of leadership which is based solely on how strong or clever an individual can be over the others.

Slightly off topic but how would necromancy be treated in orc society? I was looking at the pantheons and didnt see anything for or against it but I did notice Desecrate was a spell option. Other than destroying religious shrines, its other purpose just bolsters undead in the vicinity.

Depends on the setting etc.
I reckon the whole point of orcs was to emphasise the evils of industrialised conquest. So if I was going to bother using orcs, they'd have to be pushing that angle. I'd probably give them the remnants of cultural practices from before their enslavement, mixed with plenty of new cultural practices born from mess halls, army brothels, marches, passing the time in foxholes, factory pubs where you don't spend coins but use company scrip instead, that sort of thing.

>>78421943
Semi-nomadic and tribal with a strong belief of might makes right, though they have a surprisingly wide definition of "might" that includes not just physical strength but magical power, tactical cunning, and in some cases even things like personal charisma, skill at a trade, or wealth if they leverage them properly. They are prone to raiding other race and even other orcs, following the logic that if they can't defend their things (or work out some arrangement to otherwise keep the orcs from raiding them), then they didn't deserve them
Also, due to being created by the same progenitor race as the elves, they share the elve's genetically encoded standards of beauty, hence why they tend to abduct 'spouses' from other races, and yes, this means female orcs are just as likely to haul off cute guys as male orcs are to haul off cute girls

a powerful orc male beind him
why the fuck would the orcs do that instead of get a female they could breed? even if tears streak the boy's dirtied face, his useless phallus flopping in unwilling rigidity

a boy is nowhere near as sexy as a girl and nowhere near as feminine
so if an orc is attracted to humans because they're softer and cuter why would it want a boy's rigid rectangular body? Boys aren't made to be pincushions

if a human peasant was raped in front of the girl he fancied, while she was hiding say, and could see him getting beat up by an orc, and then grappled, and then subdued... and then...
what if the boy made eye contact with his crush, right as the orc finished his conquest? And she cried silent tears, as his organ spasm'd and spurt on the dusty ground... against his will.... :(

Orcs and dwarves share natural enemies. The main difference is dwarves are better engineers and architects, they're basically more civilized.
But as far as things they hate, and things they respect, they've probably got a lot in common.

Either have Orcs be like Orks and have them be clever in an animalistic sense in that underestimating their capabilities and trying to operate by any logic but theirs is a fast route to death.

Alternatively, have them be a warrior tribe that values strength, but willing to integrate into other cultures. Orcish women like human men who can impress them through traits like intelligence or wisdom that other Orcs lack, or Orcish men seek to find mates who are just as willing to fight or endure as they are

In my setting they're somewhat based on warhammer orks in temperament, but rather than being religiously driven they have a genetic predisposition to hedonism. As in, orks with resources, abdundant food, people to fight, etc. end up wild, bloodthirsty barcrawlers like warhammer orks, but some choose to live an ascetic lifestyle and are restrained, civilized, and wise.
These second ones usually live in wastes/deserts where they're isolated from other races and spend so much time subsisting they stay 'normal'

Now you got me thinking of orcs that just swims their way to conquer the world. They were only a local nuisance in their isolated island (and neighboring land separated by a channel), that is until the Northmen came by boat to conquer them.
Needless to say, the orcs now terrorize the oceans, as their 'floating rest stop islands' makes it easier for an orc to swim until they're tired, rest on these floating wooden platforms, and then off to swim again until they hit land.

Nomads by nature, generally travel as a whole tribe. Specifics thus vary by tribe, including general level of rape-and-pillaging.

Some of the tribes are strong enough, or good enough at picking routes, that they're able to just crush any in their path.
Others are more reasonable and willing to do trade, bringing a wide variety of imports and possibly plundered goods to the cities. As the cities are wise enough not to let them all in, their markets generally form just outside the city wall.

These are the orcs that are in my setting

Warrior culture that honor strength and tradition.
Patriarchal, Alpha male leads and protects the tribe and has a harem of wives.
The chieftain's wives become leaders in different branches of the tribe i.e. Medicine Woman, General, Trade Master etc.
Only the chieftain is allowed to have wives and have children.
A male may challenge the chieftain for the right of leadership.
Unfit infants are left for dead.
Males are larger than females, standing on average a foot taller.
Males on average reach a height of 7ft while females can reach 6ft
Males are trained for hunting and war.
Females are trained for defending the village.
Females that die in childbirth are treated with the same honor as males dying in battle.
Only females are allowed to practice magic.
Orcs despise necromancy.
Females have a visible ovulation and will go into heat once a month, during this time they become more aggressive and their skin will sometimes become a darker shade.
Half-Orcs are seen as kin.
Orcs earn tattoos after completing a challenge/goal or victory in battle.
Orcs rarely domesticate any beast but will sometimes be seen with horses, worgs or other wild dogs.
Orcs come in a variety of skin shades ranging from a pale yellow to a dark blue.
Only male orcs have large prominent tusks on their lower jaw that are used to intimidate, battle rival males and attract females.
Orcs will keep fallen enemies as slaves.
Orc females are expert craftsmen and can produce excellent quality weapons.

The orcs of my setting are members of the amazon races. the amazons were created be the goddess of war,womanhood and patriarchy and this reflects a lot on them.
Orcs and other amazons have 2 basic extincts reproduce with a man and terminate any females that are non amazons on women under the goddess protection.
They are fearless warriors who chose a single male to lead and mate the tribe.they eat anything that can be eaten without question and are always trying to please the goddess

My orcs are a population of gorillas that have been infected with a photosynthesis conducting mircrobe. The ones that adapted gota more efficient metabolism out of it - instead of fixating carbon into stuff like triose or using ribulose they fixate it into AAs.

(I know its complete bullshit)
They are the most recently evolved humanoids - they adapt very quickly and use bronze.(Dwarves are the only people capable of using metal and they are basically the last large population of neanderthals)
Their religion is based around their ancestral mountains and they revere the last few individual apes that have not interacted with the microbe.

"Smart" is relative. You can have orcs that are above average intelligence for an orc, but having orc intelligence plateau at a point is fine.

Mostly pirates and mercenaries. Either plundering what they need to survive, or selling their services to the highest bidder. A people driven from their ancestral swamps and to the brink of desperation. A far cry from the wise and mighty nature lords they once were.

Just barely, humans are on the cusp of the early bronze age and are definetely past the neolithic. Legendary craftsmen trained by the ancient people of Europe who chose to stay behind emerge once or twice a decade (In cities like Uruk and such) and manage to craft legendary weapons (Aka something that isnt rock ona stick). Animal husbandry, pottery and agriculture are the main strong points of homo sapiens while neaderthals turned into a megafauna worshiping cult of stocky hunters and warriors (they managed to preserve amny of the megafauna up north thanks to spiritual practices and worship. The caves they were forced into to survive are now their main source of prominence - they discovered metalworking.)

Make them a living caricature of African Americans. Not like the 'ooga booga where da white women at', but rather - former slaves of the elves who after being freed became a semi-permanent underclass in eleven society, that have resisted all attempts to 'fix' them, and are the (ostensibly) permanent focus of eleven politics.

50% are basically morlocks, 45% are fairly normal, and 5% are the hyper-educated elite who will explain to you in detail how *actually* orcs and elves are part of the same species, and all distinctions between them are actually social constructions, rooted in eleven supremacy etc. etc.

All the "Human" Races in my setting are the children of giants.

Orcs in my setting are the children of the Frost Giants.
Elves are Children of the Storm Giants.
Dwarves the Children of the Fire Giants.
Humans the Children of the Sea Giants.
Halflings the Children of the Earth Giants.

All of them being Giantkin can interbreed. The Orcs live in the north and their kingdoms range from Finnish Raindeer herders to Dour Russian Ice cities to Fjorn-navigating Vikings.

In contrast, the Elves are Latin country inspired, like Italy, France and Spain, The Humans are Anglo-Saxons, Mainly Dutch and English, The Dwarves are Germanic and Central European and the Halflings are Balkans and Slavs.

>>78528428
Not that anon but honestly, and I say this as a brown MENA, Dwarves have always struck me as very distinctly Semitic (or possibly Balkan , I could sort of see that as well). Large noses, beards, known for haggling, they tend to be fairly technologically advanced, notable flaws are greed and stubbornness (stubbornness is an Arab stereotype that tends to get lost amidst the... other ones). Not to mention Khuzdul was modeled as a Semitic language (particularly its grammar is basically a mix of Hebrew and Arabic).

They kind of seem to me like how early Germanic peoples might've seen Phoenician merchants. Which on one hand of course has no folkloric basis because mythological dwarves are basically nothing like modern Fantasy dwarves (Norse dwarves were more like weird drow than anything), but I wouldn't be surprised if Tolkien intentionally went for that sort of angle, it seems like something that might have crossed his mind and the idea of LoTR was that it was supposed to be a sort of invented Anglo-Saxon mythology.

Likewise, in my setting the most relevant Dwarven civilization is in a mountainous area around my Syria/Levant equivalent, with a series of mountain-fortress city-states controlling the valuable mountain passes between Not!Europe/Caucasus and Not!Asia, bringing them wealth through tariffs on trade and goods coming and going along the Not!Silk Road (yes I'm aware of how Turkish that setup sounds, I try to avoid directly basing Fantasy cultures and political situations on specific real world analogues).

While I know nothign about orc lore, I could see a society of orcs around necromancy.
They have your average "muh savage, muh honor, muh strength is the msot improtant", but on top of that they raise the people they kill as undead for menial task. That an orc has to improve and better himself on battle, but anything that does not is left for a slave. But slaves need to be fed and controlled, while undead don't.

>Females that die in childbirth are treated with the same honor as males dying in battle.
I like this particular one a lot. I always lvoed cultures with "equality" but for different reasons. A tribal society with hard living conditions would definetly see dying at birth as a glory death, letting new life come into the village at the cost of your own.
I imagine you also have that the more kids a female has, the more prestige she collects, as it would be the equivalent of surviving many battles.

Alright, so they were originally a proud warrior race called the Ooruk. They weren't savages, but they were brutal as hell. Their neighbors basically magic-nuked them and turned their land into a blasted ash desert. Now, some 3,000 years on, they're known as Orks. Their society is pure might makes right, they rape, they pillage, they fight for fun, because they just love the lifestyle that much. As well, I blatantly stole the whole 'teeth currency' thing from 40k orks, as well as retrofitting the idea of poxa-groncha to an Ork's tusks instead of their dick.

I like to portray them as a mutated sub-race of elves made to fight ancient wars by ancient elves because those ancient elves were pussies. A good portion still form a warrior caste in elven cities but there are "wild orc" clans that fit the barbarian horde archetype. How they are treated and how their culture develops varies from place to place, ranging from basically slave-soldiers to begrudging tolerance to outright respect and veneration by certain elvish cities.

I did develop the concept a lot better than that but I lost my notes.

Here’s how I did Orcs in my setting.
You either have “naturals” AKA WoW-styled tribal Orcs that came to exist through evolution and have standard genders and all that lovely stuff or you have “Arties” mass-produced vat-bred monsters (warhammer styled Orcs) intended to be perfect soldiers by a coven of demented sorcerers.
Arties turned out to be fiendishly clever, moreso than their tribal kin and overthrew their sorcerer overlords, hijacked the reproduction vats and began expanding, frequently absorbing their tribal kin into their warbands.
The two are inter-breedable but Artie offspring will always be male, regardless who or what the mother was.
Natural Orcs can be diplomatic, Arties are never diplomatic, their biological bloodlust amplified by their mutations.

It's an ethnic slur for the most mutated human nations, who share a broad language group and some cultural conceits, roughly it just means 'subhuman.'
Most civilisations practice infanticide, the 'orcish' ones don't (not for good reasons), so the mutations just pile up over time.
Most people in this setting are rural bumfucks, so even if you are born with a harelip or congenital blindness people will call you a 'half-orc,' if they don't kill you at birth.
So more LotR than WoW, but more fomorian than 'classic' orc.

(In my setting at least) Orcs are tribal and nomadic, taking up most of the desert region in camps and huts and the like. Their worship for Gruumsh is divided into two sects, the church of "Gruumsh the Conquerer", which is essentially the old ways of their faith, and "Gruumsh the Forgiver", the newer faith which skews further toward representing an honour-bound God. Which also rubs off on Orcish values of combat, they tend to see it as a glorious thing to revel in, rather than just a way to kill others and take their land. For instance, one of their biggest traditions is essentially a giant Mortal Kombat tournament every 19 years - whosoever wins, is ruler of the Life Tree, the single tree that exists in the entire country.
And in terms of personal description, I tend to not go with the "Orcs are ugly green pigs" route, but they're more somewhere in a mix of pragmatism, savagery and majesty, like a gorilla. They're not necessarily evil, either, just seems like useless bloat when dealing with a playable race.
>>
>>78421943

This can be great if orcs really are technically elves. Like orismer in the elder scrolls. Elves, being centuries old elegant superbeings hate being reminded that orcs are actually closely related kinsmen with a radically different culture and maybe a curse that shortens their life-span.
Maybe these "cursed elves" are a living reminder to them of a previous defeat in an ancient conflict.
