Humans and Half-Orcs of Korovia
Humans make up the core of Korovia’s population and vary wildly in their ability to make war and peace, stupidity and cunning, cowardice and bravery, warfare, thievery and magic. The cities of Azek, Koastmark, Kost, Oraknev and Weyvin are mostly humans. See the descriptions of specific cities for more details about the societies of humans within those regions.
Outside of Korovia many humans live in the snowy north, in Al-Kazar, in the Azagolian Empire, in the kingdom of Lavordia, in the Horse Lands to far west, and on the isle of Quinias south of Al-Kazar.
Half-Orcs are extremely rare for several reasons: There are almost no orcs in Korovia, as most are killed by the dwarves at the border between Korovia and Loqland, and those few that get through don't live long. The second reason is because most half-orcs get killed before they reach maturity, either by their own kind, by dwarves, or by other dangers. Half-Orcs have a vile temper and it tends to get them into trouble. If they physically look like an orc then its a guarantee they won't live very long. The only half-orcs in Korovia that make it to maturity are those can visually pass as humans undetected.
Half-orc magic users are exceptionally rare.
Orc raiding parties that sneak into Korovia from Loqland are sometimes led by half-orc that made it to maturity because they were born in Loqland and managed to survive. It would be incredibly rare for a half-orc to be born in Korovia.
Other regions of the world have more half-orcs, such as Al-Kazar, the Horse Lands, and such. Anywhere humans and orcs can both be found, half-orcs are likely to exist.
