The World of Rendil
The bastard children of society, orcs are cultural orphans. Unwanted by their human parents and not strong enough for their orc parents, half-orcs are a species without a home. The majority of them integrate into orc society, often overcompensating for lacking the brutish strength of the orcs by being over-zealous. Those who manage to find a place in human society can only find acceptance among the dregs of society and the criminal element. Half-orcs excel at adventuring due to their natural speed and strength. Though not as strong as their orc cousins, they are still stronger than humans and faster than orcs. This makes half-orcs excellent thieves, warriors, and rangers, tending toward martial backgrounds.
