The world is a cruel and difficult cesspool of chaos and misunderstandings. Surma knew this all too well as she watched her people one by one hunted down like some sort of rabid animal. The kingdoms of elves and men have made their disposition toward her kind clear. Whether it stemed from bigotry or the sins of moons past mattered not in her eyes. The sound of war drums beating echoed throughout the realm. For soon it will be blood not the rain which makes the grass grow. Under her will and doctrines the once scattered orc tribes had united under a single banner. An unintended side effect of the crusade harbored against them. Cultures opposed had become united for a single purpose...survival. And though the others races were ignorant of the coming storm. In the shadows of stone they waited and plotted their second coming. Evolution had taken hold; a once savage race was forced to adapt to the coming times. For thousands of years this change has been dawning; its progress slow but it managed to pick up speed due to the war. No clemency will be shown; just as they spared no infant or woman. So shall their hammers return like kind. Despite the bad blood between them; there remained but a flaccid thread of hope. A hope that peace could somehow be conceived. However it seemed unlikely that such a thing would transpire. Seeing how most races thought of her kind as lowly beast with all brawn and no intellect. "Lesser" beings...that was the title they so carelessly anointed the orcs with. Despite all this hate and blood one final effort would be made to prevent the war machines. If she should fail then war and death was all but inevitable. It wasn't a question of if, rather when in her eyes. And so a small group was sent out into the world to sway the minds of the people. But little did they know what lied in store... Summary for those too lazy to read (lol) The basic idea is war is brewing. A few still wish to avoid the bloodshed. And so they send a group out into the world in an attempt to sway the minds of kings and queens. However there are those which fear the orcs (Later explained why) and are attempting to ruin any such chance. So the group finds themselves in a web of conspiracy, assassinations and war. Being that they can't win everyone over (Obviously) the players will have to choose who if any should they strive to sway. While trying to survive the elements and various evils which make up this dark fantasy world. And no you don't have to play an orc. It could be another race which sympathizes for them. And throws his or her lot in with them. I'll let you use your own preferred template for a profile. I hate imposing my own on others. Also if you fail to post without just cause; in order to keep the train rolling you may be skipped at first, and then your character will be played as an NPC. Don't fret it's just so we can make an exit for them. And if later on you wish to rejoin you can.
