10 Orc Heroes of Renown


This is the 11th post in the orc series. I fear that little time remains before the orcs are upon us. I hear their drums in the distance and I know they are coming for blood. Who will be brave enough and hearty enough to withstand the charge of the Moon Skull clan when they descend among us? This remains to be seen, but in the short time that we have left I wanted to share some information about a few well-known orc heroes.

The information provided below will give you the basics you need to create 10 detailed orc NPC's. All you will need are some character sheets and a wee bit of time to customize these NPC's so that they fit perfectly into your campaign world. The heroes below range from 5th to 9th level and have both a maximum value stat and a minimum value stat. All other numbers should fall between these two values and are left to you to place as you see fit. Each of the heroes below also has a feat. Feat descriptions can be found on pages 165 - 170 of the Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Player's Handbook.

As we don't have a lot of time, let's go straight to the list. Here are 10 Orc Heroes of Renown. Have a great weekend and Happy Gaming!
