Only the smartest warriors survive to become shamans. The only type of orc respected despite their relative lack of physical strength, shamans more than make up for their shortcomings with a crude, yet effective, control over the magical arts.

Their tusks are smaller, and they’ve usually got a leveler head on their shoulders, but male orcs set the bar pretty low there. From my experience, orc women are just as dangerous as orc men, and both are equally prepared to die in blood and pain to further the orc cause.
