This is an excerpt from One Page Lore: Fantasy Folk. Orcs and details on 20 other fantasy folk (including halflings, gnomes, lizardfolk, and more) each have their own one-page entry. You can purchase it at rexiconjesse.itch.io/one-page-lore-fantasy-folk.
Orcs are way more interesting than just being total beefcakes. I don’t see much lore about them going into what it would mean to be so naturally strong or how they differ from other folk on a biological level.

Cult Name – Nal’s Hand

Nal, the leader of Nal’s Hand, believes the worshiping of Leira, the goddess of illusion, should be a far grander and more public affair. Nal and her followers do not concern themselves with what is good or evil.
