Racial Traits

Half-Orc is a Race in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. To create your Champion in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous you can choose between 12 races. Each of them has its special characteristics, choose one according to your preferences and style of play.


Half-Orc Information

Half-orcs get the worst of both worlds. Still, while not exactly accepted, half-orcs in civilized societies tend to be valued for their martial prowess. They are usually forced to grow up hard and fast, constantly fighting for protection or to make names for themselves. Feared, distrusted, and spat upon, half-orcs still consistently manage to surprise their detractors with great deeds and unexpected wisdom - though sometimes it's easier just to crack a few skulls.


Half-Orc Physical Appearance

Both genders of half-orc stand between 6 and 7 feet tall, with powerful builds and greenish or grayish skin. Their canines often grow long enough to protrude from their mouths, and these "tusks," combined with heavy brows and slightly pointed ears, give them their notoriously bestial appearance. While half-orcs may be impressive, few ever describe them as beautiful.
