Wizards of Mivon
Orcs inhabit the frozen south lands near the great city of Dardano, far to the south of Mivon. Daylight lasts for scant hours there and the cold alone can kill the unprepared, to say nothing of the various predators that live there. It is unsurprising then that orcs are bigger, stronger and hardier than other races and that they have less time for the niceties of civilisation. In spite of their intimidating appearance orcs are no more evil than humans and are capable of kindness and cruelty in equal measure.
For an Orc to travel as far north as Mivon is rare indeed and such travellers are the subject of much curiosity. Many Mivonians will never have seen Orc up close and fewer still ever get to know one.
