Not open for further replies.
View media item 130809Hello again, this New Year, I would make an another altered melee race. I am finished the Republic and the Sisterhood faction, let's see the third race of the faction. The Desertborn Orcs.

The Desertborn are once exiled Orcs who refused to join the Orcish Horde due to their treachery by using dark magic. So they fled to the Barrens and due to the sandy environment, their skin changed from brutish green to sandy brown and thus, dwelling or wandering in the deserts may cause a change in their background and this exiled race was born from betrayal and trusting no one but themselves. They are also negotiators and hunters depending on their appearance.
