What if every race evolved from Orcs? What would the ramifications of that be?
Some of that would definitely have to be explained via magic or divine intervention. How would each of the PC races have developed if orcs were the progenitors?
Elves… this might be easily explained as some sort of fey-touched orc… that might be interesting in and of itself.
Humans… would have to be the next evolutionary step… Hmmmm… and what if Half-Orcs, instead of being a human/orc hybrid were the missing evolutionary link. 🙂
I’m not sure yet how to explain the other races… Any suggestions from the peanut gallery?
