Orc, Plainswalker

Plainswalker orcs are peaceful and prefer to avoid conflict, though many believe them to be warlike. They value community and respect the spirits of nature and their ancestors. Plainswalker orcs were able to leave Genesis, traveling to the Outer Moon or the Astral Plains, though some remained to guide other ores to their new homelands.
