Half Orcs
Half Orcs are often, but not always, rapeget from a Human woman and a Orcish raider. Half Orcs typically favor one parentage over the other, but generally benefit from the brutish strength and durability of their Orcish heritage. Their life spans are typically short compared to those of normal Humans, but are still longer than that of most Orcs.
Half Orcs in some cultures suffer discrimination, but are somewhat accepted in other cultures. Further, some Half Orcs are raised by one parent or the other, and some others have experience in both environments. Due to their high degree of variation from one another, each Half Orc should be personalized as befits their background outside of their Package Deal.
Assuming they exist in a setting, GM Permission is occasionally required to play a Half Orc.
