Ability Score Increase. Your Strength score increases by 2.

Age. Orc mature at a rate fairly equivalent to humans, perhaps as much as 20% faster, but no more than that. Orcs usually die a violent death far before they get to old age, any Orc that made it to 70 years old would be a true legend.

Alignment. Orcs are follow their instincts, their twisted sense of honor and what they perceive as the will of the spirits more than the rules of any mortal rules making living in large or structured societies difficult for them thus making them solidly chaotic. Most Orcs could be easily seen as evil as their drive to constantly test themselves against others in battle can make them unbearable violent and vicious.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

Darkvision. You are accustomed to living in caves and running around in the dark of night allowing you to navigate in the darkness fairly well. You can effectively see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were in bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can’t discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.

Orc Ferocity. You have advantage on death saving throws.

Orc Combat Training. You have proficiency with all martial axe weapons.

Keen Smell. You have proficiency in the Perception skill.

Animal Instincts. You can sense the aura of your immediate vicinity with a Wisdom (Insight) check. You will gain often vague or cryptic impressions of such things as if the site had once been a place of great conflict or disaster in the past couple centuries, what the weather will be like during the next few days and if there are any impending natural disasters.

Languages. You can speak, read and write Common and Orc. Orcs speak their own language known as Orc, which doesn’t have its own script. The majority of Orcs are illiterate as their culture tends to be too nomadic to allow them to keep much written material with them. Orcs that speak other languages may or may not be able to read.
