Special abilities

Orcs are one of the best races when it comes to one-handed and two-handed combat, as well as having high skill in crafting weapons and armor. Orcs are not as skilled in magic as other races, such as the Elves, but what they lack in magic they make up in physical combat. Orcs also have high stats in smithing and crafting.
