It was during the First Age of Stars that Melkor committed his greatest blasphemy; for he had captured many of the Elves and had taken them to the depths of Utumno and had twisted them into hideous caricatures of their former selves. From these he bred a Goblin race of slaves as hideous as Elves were fair.

They are stunted, ugly, bent, bow-legged and squat. Their skin is black, as is their blood. Jagged fangs fill their mouths and their thick tongues are red as fire. The Orc's eyes are but crimson slits in their broad, flat faces. They are usually unintelligent but strong and brutally cunning. The Orc's only joy is the pain of others. They are cruel, jealous, petty, and selfish. They squabble frequently amongst themselves and it is said that they are never happy or at peace. Orc is from the word 'Orch' in Sindarin but they are also called goblins by some. They call themselves by many names including uruk and snaga (slave).

In T.A. 2475 Sauron unleashed a new breed of Goblin upon the Free Peoples of Middle-earth: Uruk-hai. These were the Dark Lord's Finest troops. They did not fear the sun as the lesser orcs. They are taller in size, more resembling men than the common Orcs. They are also more intelligent and capable of well-planned, coordinated attacks.

Orcs align themselves by the clan and group. These groups are often at war and it takes a very charismatic and mighty leader to hold them together. It may be surmised that Orcs lose as many warriors to internal strife and conflict as in battle with the Free People of Middle-earth.

The following roughly describes how players become different levels of orcs, and how they relate to one another:

New players begin as Uruks, modified Orcs bred by Sauron in the mid-late 3rd age. They do not fear the light of day, though they are not at their best under it (for more details, see help lighting).

Uruk-Hai are superior Uruks. This status is given to proven players only, though Isengard, under the influence of Saruman, would have a greater percentage of Uruk-Hai.
