Orc (Orsimer)
Passive Abilities

OrcOrcs, also called Orsimer or “Pariah Folk” in ancient times, are sophisticated, beastlike people of the Wrothgarian Mountains, Dragontail Mountains, Valenwood, and Orsinium (literally translated as “Orc-Town”). They are noted for their unshakable courage in war and their unflinching endurance of hardships. Orcs have elven blood, but are usually considered to be beastfolk. In the past, Orcs have been widely feared and hated by the other nations and races of Tamriel, and were often considered to be goblin-ken. However, they have slowly won acceptance in the Empire, in particular for their distinguished service in the Emperor’s Legions. Orc armorers are prized for their craftsmanship, and Orc warriors in heavy armor are among the finest front-line troops in the Empire, and are fearsome when using their berserker rage. Orcs have a lifespan similar to that of humans. Most Imperial citizens regard the Orc society as rough and cruel. The Orcs of the Iliac Bay region have developed their own language, known as Orcish, and have often had their own kingdom, Orsinium.

The racial skills of the Orcs reflect their people’s harsh mountain environment, giving them bonuses to heavy armor use, health, health regeneration, healing received, stamina, melee attacks, inspiration gain, and sprinting.

Orcs have an associated skill line that complements their lore-based abilities with a focus on Heavy Armor usage and increased health pools and regeneration abilities. Abilities are listed below.
