While I agree with the concept of it being setting dependent. The fact that D&D orcs are "evil" in the MM doesn't need to affect your table. I've used ambiguously aligned orcs and goblins since 1e and the orcs in the book always said "evil." It only affects your table if you let it, IMO.Hey, new player here. The reason I dislike always-evil-orcs does not effect my attitude towards Dark Sun. I dislike always-evil-orcs due to it being completely and entirely setting dependent, while Dark Sun is a setting. What happens on Dark Sun doesn't effect my table, but having orcs always be evil and/or stupid did.
