|An ugly subterranean race, orcs combine the worst features of humans, pigs and several other unpleasant creatures. They tend to run in packs or mobs, and delight in outbursts of insane violence.|
For a list of all orcs, see list of orcs.
Orcs are simple-minded creatures who often carry weapons and armor but only pose a threat when encountered in packs alongside more advanced orcs (which is usually the case). They are found all throughout the dungeon, usually starting on D:3 or 4, and can be found in swarms in the Orcish Mines and some baileys.
You can find deformed orcs, febrile orcs, and sickly orcs in some of the sealed chambers in Cigotuvi's Fleshworks.

Tips & Tricks
- Although standard orcs are by no means harmless, any other variety of orc is MUCH more dangerous. Early characters should watch out for orc priests and avoid melee with orc warriors.
