Orcs, Goblins, and Hobgoblins are common throughout the lands. They are leathery umber in color and complexion and close to human in skeletal structure.
Since the edict Behadeau’s Plea in SS 172, the church has extended its protection towards peaceful goblinkin. Integration started before that, during the Fiefdom War, when both sides used goblinkin mercenaries. Now, Orcs and Goblins are allowed into the cities of the Londs and, in theory, co-exist with the other races (But don’t talk about this around the dwarves).

But in the Feral Plains, Orcs and Goblins still live the old way, raiding each other and scrapping out an existence in these bad-lands. (More About the Feral Plains)
