Medium Description

What do you get when you try to genetically modify human DNA to create the perfect worker, soldier, the ultimate athlete? Correct, an accident causing a rampaging retro-virus, which mutates millions of humans all over the globe.

Orks, as they were then called, are around since about 50 years, and they are here to stay. The surge caused massive societal problems which caused ork-kind to usually bundle up in their own small sub-communities. Orks can be found mostly in the lower social classes and are experiencing strong racism wherever they go. There are about 15-20% orks globally.

Playing an ork means you’ll experience that oppression first hand, but you’ll also be part of a strong and loyal community of like-minded.
