The Sluagh are an orcish race who inhabit the eastern grasslands and temperate forests of Moyesh, in a land called Arcora. They are corrupted Erlking which turned them from the great and noble race to primal beasts.
Anatomy & Morphology
They are anthropomorphic, with two arms, two legs and an endoskeleton. They have faint hair covering their body.
Males are often larger and stronger than females; however, females are more flexible and have stronger immune systems since they bear children.
Genetics and Reproduction
They reproduce as most mammals do, with a 9 month gestation period.
Growth Rate & Stages
They reach adolescence within twelve to fourteen years and adulthood within eighteen to twenty.
Dietary Needs and Habits
They are carnivores.
They have rough human features, with pointed ears and animalistic noses. They have prominent jaws and brows, and large animalistic teeth that slightly push their mouths open.
They have primal intelligence, while capable of creating tools, even boats and large structures, they are ultimately dominated by their primal instincts.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Their senses are much better than that of most mortal races.
Civilization and Culture
First names generally have little bases, besides following the phonetics of their language Arach. Last names are largely non-existent.
Major Language Groups and Dialects
When the corrupted elven races diverged, the Sluagh, corrupted Erlking, travelled to the southern continent of Moyesh and settled in the western grasslands and temperate forests. The orcish race came to call themselves The Thirsting as they became slaves to their thirst for blood and conflict, the land they inhabited they did not care to give a name. The Sluagh pushed their borders for many generations; however, they eventually gave up and their land became a slaughter for all who resided there, as tribes formed and they cast themselves into a meaningless civil war.
Interspecies Relations and Assumptions
They are seen as animals by many, and none would consider them friend. They Sluagh often act on primal instincts leading them to attack most races and creatures.
