Goblin

Submitted by KingNasher on Thu, 6/29/2017 at 11:07am

Goblins are small, green humanoids who are, at best, viewed as nuisances by the civilized races of Orn. Lacking an organized society of their own, goblins congregate in small camps and prey on travelers. Some of the more ambitious groups try to raid towns and villages, but most goblins are too cowardly to attack a superior foe unless coerced.

Uordeq

Submitted by Morgan on Sat, 2/25/2017 at 11:13am

The Uordeq race has always been shrouded in secrecy and never fully understood by the other races of Orn. They are dark-eyed and almost nocturnal creatures who are treated with hostility, mistrust, and fear wherever they go, even by their own kind. They have gained a reputation as being slavers, thieves, necromancers, and warlocks. And although there are good reasons for this, only one thing can be said with certainty: The Uordeq dwell in the shadows and do whatever it takes to survive.  Survival is everything to an Uordeq.
