..........Before gargoyles, before elves, a great many of roleplayers, roleplayed a race that the game mechanics did not offer us and still don't.. Many, many people have roleplayed as Orcs, in fact, it was the second most popular race to roleplay as.. I would have long expected Orcs to be a race in the game before any Gargoyle or Elf.... This is from like 1999 or so, it was a Orc guild on Europa and Catskills called the Shadowclan.. Many of those that roleplayed Orcs back in the day have now quit the game, I still have an Orc on Pacific and there is around 8 or 9 of us roleplaying as Orcs on that shard, many people still roleplay orcs on other shards, and there has been many guild based off orc roleplaying, we even have our own language that is a mixture of german, tolkeins black speech and very bad english.. I think the players have shown in the past that we deserve to have ORCS as a player race more than any other, it saddens me that they and the players have chosen gargoyles and elves over this once famous and magnificent race.. The dedication of Orc Roleplayers, dreaming of having it has a player race one day, looks very, very far off, people are now begging for a pirate expansion next.. But I think we have shown in past and present that orcs need to be a player race first, more than any other.. This is a plea to the devs, please give us orcs as a player RACE!!
