Mordor Battle Company

The orcs of Sauron are an ancient race, twisted creatures created in a mockery of the Elves by the evil Morgoth, the master of Sauron. On occasion, the Orcs and their dark masters have suffered shattering defeats which have scattered them to the four corners of the world, where they fight and bicker amongst themselves. The Third Age is not such a time! Since Sauron began to regain his strength, the Orcs have been multiplying in number. Now, he has returned to his black tower in Mordor and the armies of this foul maggot-breed seem numberless. Though they are cowardly and fearful of sunlight, in large numbers, the Orcs can be deadly opponents. There are many different kinds of Orc, from the weak and puny Snaga and Goblins to the might Uruks. Though they vary in strength, their willingness to do Evil remains the same no matter what their size. A Battle Company of Orcs represents a roving band, perhaps a patrol on the marches for Mordor, or a band of reavers out to burn and destroy the lands of Men.

Shaman. The Hero has started down the path of dark power to learn the Evil magic ways of Sauron.
