The god of orcs is the personification of orcish might and brutality. Appearing as a huge, powerful orc, he towers over battlefields, crushing friend and foe alike beneath his black hobnailed boots. He often responds to blood sacrifice by sending evil creatures, or even personally manifesting himself. His howls of barbaric rage rumble like thunder across the battlefield causing the earth to shake. In battle, he disdains the use of missile weapons, calling them the weapons of weaklings or — worse — elves.
