greetings ... yes some people roleplay orcs ... it gives them no bonuses but is just cool to do

you need to be 16 with a parents authorization or 18

Pretty much what Cailen said.

The general rule for races in Darkon is simple: A player may RP as any normal, or fantasy race, that could fit in a late Roman to Medieval/Feudal period. There's only two major rules/advice we enforce/encourage:

1. You gain no bonus effects in game for Roleplaying as any specific race= So no extra damage with weapon strikes if you play as an Orc. No better capability to notice hidden things if your an elf. And no ability to shrug off the effects of a death potion that the Assassin applied in your mug while you're a dwarf in character, and so on and so forth. Only Class abilities can provide additional abilities beyond what would normally be possible

2. It is highly encouraged that you try to represent any fantasy race you've chosen, in the best way you can, within your means. However, you must still abide all other rules for Darkon (notably Garb/Armor rules)

Huzzah! Everyone loves orcs! We have the events schedule posted on the main page and there are links to the locations there. The next event you will be able to attend after turning 16 is at Redland: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=6505+Mun ... 0525&hl=en

If you're interested in orcs, my character is Warboss Gutzmangul and he's the leader of WAAAGH!!! If you would like to run with us, you're certainly welcome to. If you want to antagonize us, we're cool with that too. Look for the maniacs in bright yellow. That's us.

We're all over the MD/DC area, and even in VA for most campouts and a couple day events per year. For details, go here: http://www.darkon.org/events.html

You can also find the rules on our main site (darkon.org), under "publications".

I think it's definitely acceptable to play anything before the Roman era, too.
