These rules describe an often overlooked period of warfare known as the Wars of the Orcses, a civil war between competing factions in the northern regions of Orcland. The war was fought between two rival branches of the House of Plantagut: the House of Lank-Pasta, associated with the emblem of the red rose growing out of the skull of a dead Angry-Vin Goblin – and the House of Yorc whose symbol was the white rose (growing out of the arse of a dead Stu-Wart Goblin). The wars lasted for over thirty years with many epic battles fought including the Battles of Stained Albans, Pewksebery and many many more. The struggle swung back and forth with first one faction in the ascendancy and then the other. The heavy loss of Orc life was both widespread and tragic – and neighbouring powers looked on with interest as Orcland seemed to tear itself apart. Eventually the war ended at the decisive Battle of Bogsworth Field and the crowning of the warlord Hen-Wee as king Hen-Wee VII. The kings position was further strengthened when Hen-Wee married Elibarf of Yorc, the daughter of Edturd IV, the most prominent Yorcist claimant to the throne of Orcland.
The Wars of the Orcses rules allow players to fight large scale battles between rival Orc armies with lots of supporting allied and mercenary units of Goblins, Hobgoblins, Trolls and Ogres. The rules included a detailed background to the conflict, the key players and a list of the major battles fought. Also included is a scenario describing the Battle of Pewksbery. If you fancy a bit of Orc on Orc action you probably need help – but either way these are the rules for you!
