Of Orcs and Men - Preview @ Hooked Gamers
Zohain sends in this preview of the Cyanide and Spiders collaboration Of Orcs and Men. It looks based on existing information but offers a summary of the project:
Of Orcs and Men is set in a typical world infest... sorry... inhabited by men. This means that the other races and species have to retreat from their ancestral lands as the human civilization expands. The downtrodden species in this case are Orcs and Goblins, the former of which are powerful and strong warriors and the latter smaller, more cunning and stealthier species. While the race of Men has uses for strong Orcs – mainly as slaves – they have only hatred towards the Goblins and they slaughter them wherever they are encountered.
The hero of the story is an elite Orc soldier, a veteran of many battles and a member of a legion called Bloodjaws. He is called forth by his commander and tasked with a mission that will test his mettle and potentially end the war between Orcs and Men. And this mission involves nothing less than the assassination of the Emperor of Men, the man who has sent his people against Orcs and Goblins for many loathsome decades.
