    This post just gave me a L-orcasm.

    Question, is there any Orichalcum mines in Valenwood? And are the Iron Orcs named for their greyish skin tone or because they live near iron ore mines?

    It's actually difficult to say what ore is in which mine. ESO has just...mines. I think they would still use orichalcum for weapons, but My guess is that other materials are more frequent. As for Iron Orcs...they are more...barbaric sub race of Orcs. They worship - or at least worshipped - stone, before foreigners showed up in Craglorn. They had to adapt to this new threat, so they started mining iron from their precious stone and they hate themselves - and everyone else - for being forced to do it. They became mining and smithing society after that.

    Worship stone? Don't they worship Malacath like the other Orcs?

    As I said, I know very little, this is what I know. Apparently, they are completely different kind of Orcs, they have their own languange and such. It is possible they might not worship Malacath, but it´s just my guess, nothing more.

    Hmm, that sounds interesting. A totally new Orc culture? I look forward to when you'll get to it))

    These clans are known to be extremely ferocious and savage, painting their faces red, to wash the shame of their defeat at Abamath away.

    Another nice little to hook. Damn, must resist the urge to play a freakin wood orc.
