    Orcs!

    Orcs as playable race. Orc armor, orc weapons and orc mounts. (both taming required and none taming required)

    Orc house tiles and a new Orc only skill, Voodoo, profession title is Shaman.

    Very basic idea not given it too much tought, but just wanted to share:)

    I wish!

    If they want to put another race in i'm fine with that, but for god's sake ... NO MORE ONE RACE ARMOR TYPES.

    Orcs can wear human armors ... they already do.

    I like it, would also give them a chance to rework some of the old areas with orcs in them.

    I support this, RPed orcs were quite fun!

    Mythic would only need to hue the avatar skin with a range of greens and earthtones, and then give a new face similar to what the EC's RP orc face choice is.

    No need for the annoying racial armor, just add a few more chainmail varients with a more orcish look.

    Awesome idea!!!

    I'd be all for it, but I'm not sure how you would market it. I think orcs are the better choice for most players, but personally I'd like to see dwarves, or mountain men as they refer to themselves in Ultima lore, introduced. I think either one would be a good opportunity to expand the content ( Land ) we already have without adding more dungeons or overland areas.

    I'm imagining taking the Cove orc fort and doing something like they're doing for Magincia.

    They should add a new race every 6 months or every year and then give us an extra character slot but make it so that character slot only works on one shard, of your choice. So, you could have maybe, 10 characters on one shard but only allowed 5 on another and make them transeferable to other shards.

    That's the only thing about adding races, that and skills because you always get new skills and I just think that at a point, people won't have room to create the new races.

    Maybe they could set certain standards in the expansions, where you get house tiles for orcs, a boat, armour, weapons. I'm not saying, make them so that other races can't use them but I think they should be more affective. Like, gargoyle armour, if used by any other race could of just had more of a strength requirement or they could of been made uncomfortable, giving penalties to defense, rather than not being able to use it by another race.

    Yea I must say I agree with that, there should be an orcish look variant for chainmail,ringmail,bonearmor,studded and regular leather.Wich humans and elves could also use (altho that would look wierd, but you have the choice)

    Reason Im posting this idea is because the Severed Heads Orcs is making a comeback on europa server atm. Home : The Severed Heads Orcs - Europa - Ultima Online - Guild Launch Guild Hosting

    I'd love to have orcs...

    And Drow.

    I'm all for it.

    You already have Drow. =P

    Plenty of the elf skin hues are dark.

    Technically we already have orc skin too.... if you go by the color of some orcs in 2d... and if you wear the Majic flippers... or if you use the orc skin in the EC.... you "technically" already have orcs.

    However I'd like to see more dark elf related material. And orc stuff. There are plenty of orc forts they could certainly give more tiles and things including banners from orcs...

    Clothing lines and skins designed around such things added to the elven menu would be nice. As well as new faces added to the menu. I'd like some Dark Elven tatoo's available.... and such.

    It would be simple to add more Orcish and Drowish hues to the already existing Elven skin menu.

    I wanted more earthen tones of skins for elves anyway.

    Adding new armor and weapon choices wouldn't be too hard either I wouldn't think.

    I'd like to see a Dark elven hand crossbow.... Orcish weapons like bone weapons and things would be pretty neat too.

    Just saying it could be done quite easily without really putting a whole lot of effort into it if they could add faces and skintones to the existing elf menu.

    Though if you go with the EC orcs you would have to have a whole new body style and the armor that exists would not properly fit. So you'd run into that same Gargish problem.

    Fat tusked bulldogish head and matted tail on the Cu body. Bleed attack replaced by a monitor lizard style poison bite. Worg.

    Hellhound template fire for poison and fur in green tones. Rabid Hounds.

    Maybe add in that rare color generator spawned greens like the Predator Hellcat bloods and pinks.

    We already have orc areas for theese new pets spawn rune markers to be placed. Theese new Orc tames can only be tamed while under herding effect of another Orc. Chat: Orc Herder for hire!!!!!!



    Shaman would be a mix of the Necro and Weaver aspects. Remained with new summons. Unlike the weaver circle Shamans gain in skill related properties when other shamans are close. SLoowww Mana burn spells that remain till recast. Have 5 different spells so 5 Shaman would caste at full strength with group of 5. Others can run spells also as only death insurance if another in group dies that has same spell up.

    Summoned Enraged Brute is a one in only 15 spaces summon. That would take 5 slots and would almost be a tamers GD match. Only can be summoned and remain in play if a group of at least 3 Orc Shaman are Partied and alive.


    Lets have Orcs. But lets face it. Orc are not the solo heros type. Anything related should require a group effort.


    Orc Catapult for the boats. Some insane long grind to make a bolt for a single shot. Like the cannons for balance. Could have the shaft from some Orc Gardening plant. You know over two weeks of growing, burning stuff to maintain palnts health, for 8 shafts that could be lost in crafting.

    Orcs wouldn't really be a "booster pack" though... that would be definitely be another full-fledged expansion.

    GIVE US BREWERY'S!!! With the ability to make bottles and private labels. ;)

    No they wouldn't, all orcs look the same to me. They're all squishy and die just fine anyways. *THWAP* dead orc. *THWAP* another dead orc.

    Starting to like this idea more... orcs die squishily.. easier PvP...
