ORC is a Role Playing Game rules system.

  • ORC character creation is fairly crunchy, but its crunchy for a reason.
    • The rules are primarily meant to model physics and biology.
    • ORC gameplay is easy to learn and quick to use.
    • All rules work from the same basic mechanic.
    • The rules can scale from light to crunchy based on the needs of the story.
    • The most complicated part is combat, because the combat system allows for people to use real-life strategies and to employ every resource available to help them win.
  • ORC is not a generic system designed to be able to be instantly dropped into any setting.
  • ORC is designed for realistic, low-powered gameplay (as opposed to legendary, superheroic, comedic, etc. games).
  • ORC character creation must be specifically tailored to each game setting.
