Not quite Warcraft Orcs, definitely not Tolkien or 40k Orcs

Orcs in my universe are basically...thuggish humans. Same big, grey-skinned, tusked motherfuckers. But they aren't savage brutal monsters. Their livelihood revolves just as much around not pissing off surrounding inhabitants.

Half-orcs tend to veer towards righteous paths, i.e Paladins, Clerics, and the like. The most prominent so far the party has met is Gorom Lichslayer, Half-Orc Paladin of Kord.

>> No.24876528

>> No.24876531

Orcs are polynesian viking pirates and half orcs are the rarest of the human half-breeds. Males are more or less welcomed into orcish society, but female half-breeds, due to their sterility, are seen as of little value.

Of course players still generally take half orc over orc, just cause they have more support, but canonically they're a 1 in 10,000 kind of thing

>> No.24876549


Untrue. Hot orc females are large, muscular, have tusks, angular faces, strong jaws, messy hair/no hair, are dominant, etc.

>have tusks, angular faces, strong jaws, messy hair/no hair

Which, in my opinion, are incompatible with being hot. In fact, I dislike underbites and over-emphasis on the bottom jaw in pretty much all designs ever, regardless of whether sexual attraction is involved whatsoever. Which is totally my opinion, but it still means that for me, it's look hot or look like an orc, choose only one. So in your example, that face is a total cold shower. And the body isn't so hot either, she needs wider hips to balance out those broad shoulders, otherwise that frame's on the manly side.

And with her, everything below the neck seems A-okay, but that face is a no-go. Yet at the same time, her face is the only part of her that looks orc. So is she really a hot orc if she's attractive only in spite of the obviously orcy parts?

Maybe I have too narrow an idea of what makes an orc an orc, but it seems to me that aside from being green and having extra muscle definition, what actually differentiates an orc from a human is the opposite of what makes a woman attractive. And if just being green and muscular is enough, then I guess She-Hulk's an orc.

My feeling is that it's a waste of a design opportunity to merely change the skin color or ear shape of something that's supposed to be not human. I'm not demanding floating starfish brains, they can still be bipeds with two arms and two legs, I just want non-humans to be different enough that nobody would ever reasonably mistake them for human at a glance, even in poor lighting.

You're very picky. You may pass your opinion, but it's rather irrelevant, since you're biased and fixed on what you think orc should look like. And it doesn't have to look that way at all, AND since we're not fixed to some magical, god given, carved in stone canon, we chose our orc ladies how we like.

Also, for what it's worth, suspension of disbelief isn't the issue, especially in fantasy, where the bipedal form is apparently the cosmological true form of intelligent beings, and the form of the gods who made everything. Again, it's just boring to me, design-wise, to see non-humans just be green or short.

Nah, man, that's just your opinion. Everyone's entitled to one. Mine is that orcish females are hot precisely because they're so tomboyish and 'rough'-looking. You just have a different sense of aesthetics.

Maybe you should be looking at a different race to find interesting and attractive-looking females. Elves sound more your forte. Check out Nereids - a criminally underappreciated, underdeveloped and underused race. Pic related. Finding good Nereid pics is hard as FUCK.

Personally, I don't like the 'cute' orc, either, though.

>> No.24877050

I've always imagined the bipedal form and morphological similarities are present because most of the races are related. More out there stuff like gnolls and other beastmen are usually a product of magical fuckery

I think the thing about fantasy is that it is and is supposed to be very human-centric. The races aren't so much there to be different things to learn about, but to be exaggerated reflections of human cultures or would be cultures. In that case it's more what they do than what they are that makes them interesting. In that case I don't think bipedal insectoids or something have a place in things beyond being monsters. I feel the kind of differentiation that creates curiosity and a sense of the discovery of the alien is more the realm of sci-fi.

Fantasy is a study in anthropology, while sci-fi is a venture into the biological/scientific.

>> No.24877093

We're just going to have to agree to disagree here, as again, while I find her super hot, I also don't see her as being an orc in any significant way. For all intents and purposes she could be a hot fit human woman who happens to be green, and green alone does not an orc make.

Incidentally, I'm not picking on orcs specifically, I have the same issue with, for example, elf porn- unless you're specifically fapping to those pointy ears exclusively, you're pretty much just into a sexy human, since the rest is identical. So why bother with the elf distinction at all?

Call it nit picking, and fairly so, but I take issue with valuing the distinction in theory without any significance in practice.

>> No.24877103


I don't see why we should categorize things like that. Fantasy can have a sense of discovery just as much as Sci Fi. And Sci Fi can be just as much a study of humanity as Fantasy can.

Also - it makes sense from a biological efficiency point of view for sentient races to be bipedal, with opposable thumbs, with sensory organs on a head, which is the highest point of the body, with eyes facing forward for a 3D view of the world, etc., etc.

That's an interesting viewpoint. I guess that, by your logic, I take some degree of sci-fi sensibility into fantasy, As I like the idea of interacting with weird, but intelligent, bipedal insectoids.

Again, I like the idea that the humanoid form is the inevitable shape of all things intelligent, and that human psychology has some degree of universality, but with room for variations much larger than green skin and tusks.

Maybe because eyes on the side of the head look just plain wrong unless the thing is otherwise so different in form that human standards don't apply. You know, like a bug or something. Quite frankly, the sideways eyes of animals such as birds look weird to me if I really focus on that aspect. So that'd never fly on something that was closer to human form.

There's a complex dance to maintain between interesting design variation and our instinctual expectation for what humans (or anything close enough to trigger human standards) should look like.

Alright, arguing semantics doesn't get us anywhere. I made a mistake - I fessed up, now dispute my actual point, not the error I made.


I know the differences, I'm just saying that certain themes don't need to be exclusive to either genre. As long as Fantasy works with magic and Sci Fi works with science, I think we're okay. And hell, even those aren't really necessary.

You can easily have a sci fi setting where the human element is omni-present and studied - like for example Star Trek. And you can easily have fantasy where the focus is on exploring new places, people and things. I can't name one off the top of my head, but I'm pretty sure it's been done successfully more than once.

They're not, but the focus is what's important in spec-fic.

It's not the types ofstories but the speculation behind them that divides the main three genres.

Half orc female monk (archetype Tetori).
Perhaps with some bard lvls now she is into acting.

I'm not seeing it at all.

To her defense, she still draws orcs much more muscular and larger than human, and they have the characteristically (and normally "ugly" broad, low mouths and tusks. It's mostly the eyes that are drawn more larger and kinder than usual, and the lack of warts and such.

I'd rather have that than just "normal humans painted green, with tusks".

More like killing your children with sticks culture. Dolphins are the rape culture.

More horrifying is that some African warlord a few decades back tried to use chimpanzees in his army so he taught them how to use guns. Decades later, they have passed this knowledge onto their children so now we have gun toting chimps running about.

BroQuest: The Shwigening
/tg/ steals yet again from /v/ and then fails to do anything with it.

>> No.24881580

Started out as one of those "choose your adventure" things on /v/.
Turned into a collaborative effort between /v/ and /tg/ to turn it into a video game.
Eventually got co-opted by a bunch of tripfags who decided "fuck you, it's our project now", and the whole thing shortly thereafter collapsed under its own weight.

Basically a big collection of bad memories for all involved.
