The ashlanders are a widespread faction of orcs originating from the blightlands. They are united by a common heritage and a shared goal of carving out a palce to truly call their own and prosper for generations to come. What does it mean to be an ashlander orc? Ashlander orcs are a varied, still nomadic group of orcs, but big things are to come, and boy do I have plans. Members go out on adventures of their own, yet there Is always so much more when an orc has a community of their own, a place to call home, with a rich history spanning over multiple characters, OCs, NPCs and storylines unfolds. Currently some good stuff longterm plots are being...plotted out, and while outsider orcs are welcome for as long as Mav Stormcaller is chieftain. So who wouldn't wanna miss out on that fun stuff ! There is always that sense of actually being part of something, and so the reason on why I'm here to expand the ranks of the ashlanders. Joining is pretty optional with the sense that there is no active recruitment with forms and the like, simply make an orc an ashlander and part of any of the five tribes and you are free to go with no approval needed, however I ask that people are civil with eachother, like with anything else There are some basic things to keep in mind as well as is keeping things in tasteful respect to keeping things in 'spirit' to the ashlanders. For those that wanna make an ashlander! Some of the most common roles are labourers, hunters, warriors, shamans, shaman's apprentices, herbalists, potters, cooks, skinners, smiths, warriors in training, elders as an Idea and plenty more to go on and go on. The specific branches/tribes among the ashlanders are; Blackhawks, heavily militaristically oriented, for the hunt. Ruthlress warriors but honourbound, sometimes their tactics are described as savage. Somethins things slip however. Stormcallers, very diplomatic and honourable. They were usually the clan to mediate any dispute among their brethren. Snow-wolves, seem to be the most balanced in the sense of following a path of spirituality, honour and war. Also their mounts are usually white wolf like mounts. Silverstones, are very loyal but also very reclusive from non ashlander orcs as well as non-diplomatic to any outsiders. They are very tightly knit with Blackhawks, yet their war strategy is far more sophisticated. They also employ combat magic occasionally. Shadowrevers, deeply shamanistic and most in touch with the spirit world, often described as mysterious and great explorers in such arts. Likely the least warrior-oriented. I currently controll most of the ashlander NPCs and if a specific relationship is desired, it can be created between any new arrivals or other ashlanders and preexisting NPCs under my controll. Teacher? Pupil? Collegue? Friend? Who knows! For those that just wanna join on so! The orcs have to be from a tribe not currently in war with the ashlanders (basically ...currently none other which are user created, so you're in luck! But I think any Blight orcs count in the category, despite ashlanders being descendants of the blightlands). Transient spouses also count in. Shadowstones never host outsiders and Blackhawks usually follow suit but not as strictly. Stormcallers are the most welcoming followed by Snow-wolves. Shadowreavers might only want to host magically inclined characters.
