From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The Dwarf-orcs are a hybrid race of half-orc and dwarves. Usually the offspring of adventurers who had fallen in love.

Physical Description[edit]

Dwarf-Orcs are about the same height as a Human, around 5 to 6'4" feet tall, with green, grey or tan colored skin. They have the strength of their Half-Orc parent and the fortitude of their dwarven parent. Dwarf-Orc can grow small tusks and facial hair. They have dark colored hair.


There have been very, very few Dwarf-orcs in history, but here is one that stands for the race as a whole, Kari Smokeflame. Kari had saved the lives of many of their people, from the orcs that raised them, to the Dwarves that taught them. They stood for good. They had saved a community of orcs and dwarves who lived together in peace, from the lich Talvaen.


There is no typical Dwarf-orc society, but there are a few towns that they are more numerous, such as Smokeflame mines, and Smokeflame cliff. Both are ran by orcs, dwarves, and Dwarf-orcs. But Smokeflame mines dwarves are more often found and Smokeflame cliff chief are most often orcs. Only once they have both been united together as one, was under the leadership of Kari Smokeflame. For more on the nonbinary Dwarf-orc, see history.
