The Wasteland Orcs are the most prevalent denizens of the near-Balance regions of Heaven. They are an intelligent, though predominantly savage race of humanoids who make their home in the hot and dry climes of Heaven. However tolerant they are of the harsh conditions of the hot wastes, they certainly do not possess the means to survive in the hottest environments. As a rule of thumb, they will not make their encampments in regions that regularly exceed 50º C. Just because the orcs are able to live in such extreme conditions does not mean that they are content to do so; like most creatures on Solus, they are highly aggressive in their pursuit of expanding their territory in search of comfort and water. Human settlers on the hot extreme of Balance face the constant threat of orcish raids and invasions. The orcs do not have a particularly cohesive civilization, and neighboring orcish tribes tend to be just as threatened as any human settlement.
