Yet this is held true by the wise of Eressëa, that all those of the Quendi who came into the hands of Melkor, ere Utumno was broken, were put there in prison, and by slow arts of cruelty were corrupted and enslaved; and thus did Melkor breed the hideous race of the Orcs in envy and mockery of the Elves, of whom they were afterwards the bitterest foes.

The Silmarillion, Of the Coming of the Elves and the Captivity of Melkor


Orcs are evil creatures that inhabit parts of Middle-earth. They can be found at night in many regions (Gondor, Wilderland, Eriador for example), and also during daylight hours in some biomes (Mordor, Angmar). In addition, Orcs may launch an invasion and attack a land where they do not normally spawn -- Lindon, for example, can be invaded by Gundabad Orcs.

There are currently nine different Orc races in the Mod: Angmar Orcs, Black Uruks, Dol Guldur Orcs, Gundabad Orcs, Gundabad Uruks, Isengard Snaga, Mordor Orcs, Uruks and Utumno Orcs.

If one wields an orc weapon and slays a man, it will give you Man-flesh.

If a player has earned -500 or lower alignment with the respective Orc faction, the members of that faction will fear the player and flee. The only exceptions are Mordor and Utumno Orcs. Orcs eyes glow in the darkness, allowing them to be seen in dark places.

Upon killing an Orc, the player gains the achievement "Orc Slayer".

History[]

The Orcs were originally created by the Dark Lord Melkor, who captured elves and tortured them until eventually they became deformed, belligerent, cowardly slaves to his evil purposes. These were the first Orcs. After Melkor was overthrown in the War of Wrath, what few of the Orcs that remained splintered into warring tribes in secluded foothills and under mountains, their nature preventing them from banding together to forward the purpose of conquering the free peoples. They remained in a general disarray until the arrival of their new master, Sauron, under whom they rallied and fought the War of the Ring.
