A race in the Elder Scrolls video game series.
Orcs, also called Orsimer in ancient times, are sophisticated barbarian beast peoples of the Wrothgarian Mountains, Dragontail Mountains, and Orsinium. They are noted for their unshakable courage in war and their unflinching endurance of hardships. In the past, Orcs have been widely feared and hated by the other nations and races of Tamriel, but they have slowly won acceptance in the Empire, in particular for their distinguished service in the Emperor's Legions. Orc armorers are prized for their craftsmanship, and Orc warriors in heavy armor are among the finest front-line troops in the Empire, and are fearsome when using their berserker rage. Most Imperial citizens regard the Orc society as rough and cruel, but there is much to admire in their fierce tribal loyalties and generous equality of rank and respect among the sexes.
The Hero of Daggerfall reported Gortwog gro-Nagorm united his people by establishing an autonomous enclave, and forced the Emperor Uriel Septim VII to recognize Orsinium as an equal of the other lesser kingdoms (such as Daggerfall or Sentinel).
Their religion centers around the worship of the Daedric Prince who governs outcasts, Malacath.
Orc names always follow a strict format, being that they have a main name, and a gender prefix preceding a last name. For example, Burz gro-Kash, or Shingro gra-Gubbug. (gro = male, gra = female)
Orcs also make excellent warriors who excel in combat with Blunt weapons in Heavy Armor.
Another name for a goblin, invented by JRR Tolkien. The word was taken from Anglo-Saxon "orc-nea" meaning monster or demon, which itself comes from Latin "Orcus," a god of the dead.
Orcs are goblin warriors that were created in the First Age of Middle-Earth by Melkor, an evil Valar (read, demon with godlike power), who captured a number of Elves and tortured and maimed them until they became Orcs.
I have a +2 sword of Orc-slaying, and since I'm a ranger with Favored Enemey (goblin-kind), I get another +4 to damage orcs! Sweet!

I don't trust that guy. He seems like a real orc to me.
Mythological creature beast like, you can find in the most rpg games. Orc is a creation of Tolkin. The word orc is based on the greek word orkos=oath. And that because orcs and ogres are the minions of the ancient mythological roman god Orcus, familiar with greek underworld god Hades. Orcus was also the god of oaths.
