The Ashz-Oc Orcs ("Noble Orcs")

Image description.

The orcish tribe known as the Ashz-Oc ("Noble Orcs") live in the southern hills and valleys of the Prominent Mountains in Northern Sarvonia. They're famous for their military strength and their skills in combat, but also for their strong steel and dyed clothes. Although most other races see orcs as hostile monsters, the Ashz-oc became known as honourable and worthy enemies despite many raids that were caused by clans from their lands. Most of them are not interested in conquering more lands, but defending what they believe is rightfully their home since they crossed the mountains. Picture drawn by Faugar.
