    General Ideas for other Orcish religions/cultures that are alternatives to the Gruumshite religion

    How ironic - the first Orc I ever came across was the Great Sea Orc from the Italian poem Orlando Furioso which is what Orca whales are named after. Tolkiens Orcs always confused me due to being distinctly not acquatic (I later learnt they were named for Orcus and distinct from the aquatic form)

    General Ideas for other Orcish religions/cultures that are alternatives to the Gruumshite religion

    I’d go even further, if an Orc hero ever got powerful enough it would go and hunt and slay the gods, for the singular purpose of bathing in their divine blood I do wonder do you have Hobgoblins in your game? Ie how are these Romanesque Orcs d distinct from standard Hobgoblins in the d&d bloat?

    There's a TERMINATOR RPG Coming!

    I wonder if we could get an Arnold Cinematic RPG in which you can play any of the characters he has performed from Conan and Hercules to Commando, Teminator, Kindergarten Cop, Julius Benedict, the Running Man to Douglas Quiad. Every PC is Arnold

    There's a TERMINATOR RPG Coming!

    The Sarah Connor Chronicles did pretty well at diversifying the plots though, you’ve got FBI agents, Hi-Tech Espionage, Gangsters and Revolutionaries, High School Heroes, the whole Time Travel shtick and a whole lot of competing agendas on what they future should look like.

    General Ideas for other Orcish religions/cultures that are alternatives to the Gruumshite religion

    I looked at Orcs as hunters and developed it to become a ‘Blood Cult’. These Orcs dont have gods and dont actually ‘worship’ anything, instead Orc beleif is that they consume both the flesh and life-power of their prey whether they be animals, monsters or humanoids. The practice then is to catch...

    Review La Revolution Netflix (pas de spoiler)

    I've just finished watching La Revolution on Netflix and given the general thread about Historic RPGs and while I'm waiting for visiting hours at the hospital I thought Id do a review. La Revolution is alt.history, and gives a supernatural horror twist to how the French Revolution really got...

    5E Which of these backstories do you think could be most interesting to play?

    I'm with Unwise on the Dragonborn backstory - it means that the most exciting stuff in the characters life has already happened. afterall "Hunting undead in the Shadowfell for a Shadow Dragon patron" could be an entire campaign arc. Where does the PC go from there? As a GM I'm forced to think...

    5E Which of these backstories do you think could be most interesting to play?

    But come on, all those Blacksmiths sons were adopted and are really heirs to Wizard or kings and all have the skill to forge their own magic swords why cant we just get some nice simple pig-farmers ;P

    5E Which of these backstories do you think could be most interesting to play?

    Child of Shar is definitely what I’d pick, its got nice history, dark powers, uncertain relationship with the church and a path that could lead to either redemption or corruption. The other two are okay either way but they involve a degree of being forced into things, whereas the first speaks...

    HISTORICAL CAMPAIGNS

    GURPS of course, havent they covered every era? Duty and Honour makes good use of playing cards in the Napoleonic Wars
