The Hope of Erethor
The Odrendor or orcs as they are called are an abominable race created by the black will of Izrador. Though scholars only suspect it and every dwarf would savagely deny it, orcs and the dwarves share a common elder fey lineage. In the prehistory of the Kaladrun mountains, a large clan of the Elthedar was exiled by their kin and found succor in the embrace of the Shadow in the North. Orcs are huge creatures, sometimes twice the size of their dwarf ancestors and bigger even than the Dorns. They are heavily muscled, with broad builds and powerful limbs.
