You are an elite Orc soldier, member of the legion of Bloodjaws. This legendary league of warriors is embroiled in a brutal war; on one side stand the Orcs and Goblins, on the other stands their persecutor, Humankind. Not all Orcs die on the battlefield, but they suffer a worse fate when they are captured and enslaved. Their Goblin comrades suffer persistent persecution and slaughter at the hands of humans.
You are a veteran warrior who has fought many violent battles. Newly appointed by the Orc commander, you are sent on a mission to kill the Emperor. This man has spread propaganda throughout the human race causing the masses to loathe the "green-skinned people"; he is the man who is solely responsible for the bloodshed. His death could completely change the course of the war in upcoming RPG Of Orcs and Men
The Orc hero will be accompanied by a Goblin. Their skills complement each other; the Orc relies on his power and immense strength, while the goblin can harness "darker powers" and excels in stealth situations. Both characters will have their own skill trees to develop as the game progresses.From the filthy alleys at the foot of the Great Wall, to the depths of the Empire of Men, your two infiltrated heroes will face the greatest dangers through their epic quest.
