This guy totally reminds me of my Fighter-Cleric!
I am definitely a fan of the Half-Orc/Orc or whatever, I wonder when they plan to release these guys...
im actually more in favor of playable full orcs. i think the half race part is sort of weak. people who would enjoy the features of this race, would be better served by a full blooded example, and those players who are against the orcish player choice, are not somehow less offended by a race whose qualities are brutality, beastliness, and a agression.
i feel the choosing half orc over orc would just be dumming the features of the "wild" race.
i vote full orc for a playable option.
If you have not checked out TV Tropes, you should.
It is a site dedicated to cliches in TV, Movies, Comics etc.
This one is on my friends.
I don't know if many of you are on First Post or Last Post readers, but this thread is filled with great Orc related web-sites and pics.
Check them out.

Lots of Half-Orc fans out there!
Post you favorite Half-Orc story or pic here!
I am still looking for the pictures of the races standing together in the original Player's Book with the buddy in the back!
LARPS rules for playing half-orcs. Very detailed, and incorporates the Tolkien mythos.
If this is your first-time on this thread, take a look at the previous posts for cool Half-Orc pics.
Nice history of the Half-Orc as a playable race (or not) within the D&D game itself.
This author like I, can not find the original AD&D line-up of the races.
Below are great orc sites on orc names & culture, how to play a half-orc character, the origins of the word orc as well as detailed investigations of Tolkein's orc.
Here is a nice tribute vid to the noble savage with music by a true orc band Za Frumi who sing in a dialect of the Black Speech!
What would you all like to see be done with the half-orcs besides the stats and enhancements? I am hoping we will get special orc weapons and items like the Orc Double Axe, their own House enclave and a few others I can't remember but I know.
A PNP player since 1982 and I have never played a Half-Orc. I have never been a fan of that race (or shifters and Warforged for that matter).
I'm glad that those who are into them will soon get to play them in DDO.
I would have prefered gnomes or 1/2 elves as a race but honestly more than anything I want new classes.
