Orcs and Goblins

The Warborn

Appearing from nowhere and swarming the lands like a tsunami, the Warborn have emerged in every continent across the world for as long as any can remember. With a never-ending love of conflict, and many hidden enclaves of which few outsiders are aware, it is only a matter of time before you face the twin threat of the Orcs and Goblins.

The nomadic orc tribes seem to self-generate periodically in large numbers, and are always on the move. Thanks to unfathomable methods of reproduction and with no fixed encampments, they are like a brushfire, stamped out one minute only to spring up again the next. Trickier and more treacherous than their larger relatives, the mysterious goblins protect their own existence through a complex network of secret enclaves, waging war through a union of cunning tactics, improbable monsters and the use of potent hallucinogenic substances.

Playstyle

Orcs and Goblins can often be played by sending many different monsters to overwhelm the opponents, paired with close combat units trying to rush opposing forces. A completely different approach is a large army mostly consisting of big units of Orcs and Goblins to catch the opponent and to then get in for the kill with. Orcs and Goblins armies can also consist of a more balanced approach with close combat units and shooting units with mounted characters for support.

Lore of Orcs and Goblins

Making a deal with a Goblin King

Sir, the cargo you ordered be sent to Sagarika has been detained and impounded by the Goblin King west of the Barren Mountains. As I have repeatedly advised, the King possesses far greater wit than you give him credit, and our deception as to the quality of the goods we were sending failed to dupe his staff. I will state once more for the record that I believe the only way to secure a long-term overland route through this region is free and fair negotiation with His Majesty. This will no longer be an easy task.
