Arctic Half Orcs

Many tribes of arctic orcs eke out a living on the warm slopes of volcanic mountains, herding elk and caribou. often their mutual dependence on sources of fresh water and meat brings them into contact with arctic-dwelling human barbarians. The resulting offspring are sometimes welcome in places where full orcs are not, valued for their tenacity, courage, and combat prowess.
