    Um...actually the Orcs use magic quite a bit. Especially in the tribes. I love Orcs because they are pretty civilized for their appearance. They have no sexism and are loyal.

    After I screwed up my 1st character and made a sneaky assassin wood elf I decided to bump up the difficulty and make a orcra blade master. So far he has been destroying everyone in his path. I am lvl 30 and have only died once and that was because I tried fighting a dragon priest encumbered. With 100 smithing 80 one handed and 65 enchant GE is already rolling but I am having a lot mire fun with this pure melee build. Berserk Rage is s huge racial ability. One time I accudently made the citizens of White Run hostile so I went into rage to see what would happen. Without using any healing I skaughted the entiree city and didn't due. The funniest part was when I executed the female blacksmith by cutting off her head.

    I love my orc, Gromgor! He's the most badass mofo to set foot in Skyrim. I went for a complete tank setup; sword and board, a lot of health, and a lot of magic resistance. So far it's really fun I'm really enjoying the blocking in this game.

    Only problem I have is that I dont know what class to play, they're all so fun! I have 4 separate chars lol.

    Theres a few mines scattered near them, which they use & some tell you about but there is one or two that give you quests. I did a quest for one the other day, something about a giant uprising near the Stronghold. I'd be curious to see if they change their attitude & give out quests if your an Orc build. Would be awesome.

    I just got done with a quest at one of these strongholds about a cursed orc leader that needed to appease the orc god. Gotta say... not too fond of the culture.

    Hmmm, I might have to give orcs a try. I was put off by the look (what can I say I am a bit shallow) and the fact that there is no racial ability only a power. You guys might've just inspired my second character once I get bored with my Breton assassin.

    My favourite part of creating an Orc is getting to name them, hahah.

    The stronghold in the south east has an interesting quest if you're into orcs and you get a gnarly weapon as a reward.

    Why exactly are orcs destined only to be badass warriors? I've seen orc wizards, bards, alchemists, and assassins, and I've personally played a very powerful orc battle mage.

    I play an orc assassin called Hogg Mordak on master. Beserker and dual dagger sneak power attacks work very nicely indeed, and I always have the option of bashing the crap out of someone with more substantial weapons if I feel like it. I think you can make orcs look pretty shifty so that compliments being an assassin too. I'd say orcs or bretons definitely have the best innate abilities.

    I think I am having a little bit too much fun with the adventures of Kragorr...I just played from 10 A.M. until 5 P.M. and I could have swore I was only playing for 2 hours... lol :D I got me an orcish warhammer, and improved it to the superior level, and it is smashing heads like you wouldnt believe. I got my smithing all the way up to 46 (my goal is 50 so I can make Orcish armour) and my overall level went from 3 to 10 and my 2 handed is up to 39 with boosts for Warhammers. ORCS FTW!!!

    And Orcs are destined to be badass warriors because of their Racial boosts. +10 heavy armour, +5 one hand, +5 2 hand, +5 smithing, with the Berserker specialty.....you couldnt ask for any better of boosts for a warrior. Also, they just look like tanks haha.

    Wish I could post a picture. Ive got an orc by the name of Moog Honeydeath. He's bald, yet has blonde chops, and blue eyes. Figured Id make an orc who's perhaps had some Nord blood in the family line and that gave him his slightly odd appearance. I first messed with blonde hair on the orc and it DID look off, and kinda weird. But with just the golden blonde chops, he looks stellar. He is obsessed with adventure. Often siding with the greater good, he also enjoys helping the darker side from time to time. Staying true with Orcish armor, and using a Valiant two-handed sword "Cassie", his only true love.

    I made a female orc Paladin, and she is adorable and tough as rocks all at the same time.

    Orc Von Ogre, sounds like you are even more into your Orc than I am...lol. But I agree. I really wish that I could take a screenshot of my orc. He is as big as he can possibly be, with bright blue warpaint on his face, and has jet black hair tied back. Considering I am only level 10, he currently is using full steel armour (all forged by yours truely), and swinging around an Orcish Warhammer that I have upgraded to Superior level. If you looked up Badass, you would see Kragorr's picture ;)

    I'm playing several different characters at once (I'm a completist and once I finished I'm afraid...well...I won't come back). And I love Skyrim, it's consuming my life right now (sleep, work, Skyrim). Hey, I'm saving money. I have a nord barbarian wearing pimped up furs, heavy armor horned helmet and wielding a great sword (no magic sword at this stage). Equaled Heath and stamina. He barges in, running and swinging, they all fall. Bossman is my punk. Gut them all. I was raising sneak, but soon asked why. They all picked a good day to die when they chose to become a red blip. Dragon landed. Hu-Ya. In his face, laying down the smack down.

    But, I'm thinking about an Orc too. A shaman with a big stick. A conjuror (necromancer), hammer wielding magic weapon making badass muddafugga with a loud Voice (and as far, atm, feel Nords and Orcs are the only ones, roleplayee-wise, to be able to have the Voice). The forsworn armor is rustic and has bones on it to play up the raising dead motif. Oh, and Ritual Stone. Twin souls of 2 dead Orc followers. Shadowmere. A live Orc follower. I need to check and see how many Orc followers there are...
