Happy Orctober, Everyone!

In celebration of the month of Orctober, let's take some time to dispel some myths about orcs, and respell some truths!

For instance, did you know that orcs have a rich history of interpretive doily making? It is a prestigious practice in which events of historical significance are recreated on tiny doilies. Kind of like abbreviated tapestries!

What other truths do you know about orcs that may not be common knowledge?

Fun fact, orks are actually an intelligent fungus with latent psychic abilities. The more there are in one place, the stronger their effect on reality!

Typical elven racism!

I'll have you know orcs are among the most hygienic of people, it's just that they have a defensive pheromone barrier.

OK, it's the fangs and idle worship and the spitting when they talk then......
And how did you know I play elves?

I don't play D&D type games anymore but Orks are my second favorite metatype in Shadowrun.

Hey, what’s the difference between Dirkoth and an orc? One is a big, ugly, smelly monster and the other one is an orc.

Orcs are often maligned as war-mongering psychopaths who smell bad. They're actually quite peaceful, but they get really mad when people bring up their stinky cologne.

In my experience, I've found most creatures claiming to be orcs are actually just two goblins in a trench coat.
