Elf Orc

"So you're an..."

"Elf Orc."

"Yeah... that. How did that..."

"Mom was adventurous, Dad was lucky."

"Ah. Can I...."

Physical Description


Elf Orcs often are taller than humans, around 6 to 7 feet tall, with pointed ears and green tinted skin. They maintain the natural beauty of Elves but tend to be more muscular due to their Orcish heritage. Occasionally, they grow tusks.

Elf Orcs have hair colorations that range through white, black, dark green, and dark orange. They have no facial hair and little body hair.


Elf Orcs do not have a history of their own, but instead share in the culture of both Elves and Orcs.


Some Elf Orcs can make a name for themselves as bodyguards and mercenaries in Elven society, however, they are relatively few and far between as they are mostly ostracized as abominations.

In Orc tribes the Elf Orcs are ironically better accepted than one might initially think. This is because in Orc tribes, the strong rule the weak, and the more intelligent Elf Orcs can use their cunning to make their way up to the rank of chieftain. This is more common in the Badlands where tribes of wild Elves and Orcs often commingle.

Some Elf Orcs are shunned from both societies, and instead turn to settlements of other races, such as humans and even, amusingly, Dwarves, who seem to be fairly accepting of the mixed breed that incorporates everything they respect in their two enemies with none of the pomp or savagery.

Elf Orc Names

Savage Attacks. When you score a critical hit with a melee weapon attack, you can roll one of the weapon’s damage dice one additional time and add it to the extra damage of the critical hit.
Trance. Elves don't need to sleep. Instead, they meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. (The Common word for such meditation is “trance.”) While meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.
