Just curiosity, what do you like about the Orcs and what you dont like about them.

I know what the non-DC races don't like about orcs. My orcish axe in their skull

The things I like about orcs are their strength, superior smithing and spartan style of living

Positives- The Orsimer are an extremely honorable race holding courage and strength on the battlefield above all else. They are known to superb warriors in battle, striking fear into the heart of their enemies, and for their incredible talent as blacksmiths.
Unlike most other races they do not seek to pick a fight with the weak or enslave the "lesser races", they only wish to protect their own and become stronger.

Negatives- We are definitely not known for our good looks ;) which makes other races fear us. This is a bad thing because everyone tends to band together and attack us (only when they have 10x our numbers though) this won't matter in ESO though because we are working with the Covenant so we have both the numbers and the equipment to defend ourselves.

I agree with both of you, my fellow Orcs.

The Bretons might not fully trust the Orcs - cause of their history together.

Yes, but they will just have to put up with us in Teso.

orcs are one of my fave characters in the game but the only thing is dislike about them is they dont have a country that is mostly dominated by them like how hammerfell is home to redguards and skyrim is home to nords. I do think orsinium is cool but i think it would be better if they had their own type of country

I also wish they had a country honestly. Kinda sucks they don't and even moreso it shrinks the DC's landmass for expansions.

Wrong.

In ESO the Orcs will have Orsminium (or something spelt like that) that is their ''country''. It has been sacked multiple times by Bretons and Redguards however the Bretons have helped the Orcs to rebuild during the ESO-era.

Wrong, where does it say that the Bretons helped them rebuild it? It says that Orsinium will be recognized as a province if they participate.

What we are talking about is an actual on the map country like High Rock or Hammerfell. Something that is just as big and substancial.

To be precise Orsinium is in Highrock the homeland of the Bretons and for the Orcs participation in the covenants Emeric had the Bretons help the Orcs to rebuild their kingdom which had been sacked previously.

The highs for Orcs are always for the obvious reasons: Advantage in combat and smithing. The downs are more or less that fact that they are a minority race, don't have a province of their own, and are generally scattered into strongholds.

But come in-game, why don't we make a solid effort to UNITE under one stronghold or one "Orc nation"? This is something nobody truly expects to happen but if we pull it off it will make all the difference in game dynamics.
