Orks inhabit the entirety of Queensland east of the Hoarpeaks, in scrubland, prairie, plains, and boreal forest. Orks are known for their tempers, survival skills, and hunger for Western goods. They are bellicose, but generally not malevolent. Traditionally, orkish life revolves around their herds of elk and mammoth, until the coming of missionaries from the Garden, who have begun to settle the nomadic orks in farming communities along the Emerald River.
Orkish society is based upon honor and family ties. Blood feuds are common, but are also easily averted through ritual gifts of livestock, wives, and/or trinkets. Each tribe is ruled over by a panjandrum, usually advised by shamans and trusted warriors.
Orks treat atlatls as military weapons rather than superior ones.
