Please note: This race is NOT balanced for the current state of the game, but instead balanced to be part of a greater project that aims to recreate AoW 1 with the modding tools.

Changes to orcs to match their AoW 1 feel, though with a strong dash of AoW 2(Glutton, Shaman).

Click here to view a detailed overview[]

hostpital chain feels out of place, and has been replaced, letting you build kobolds, doom crows(we didn't have bats...), and build all units with a bonus medal and life stealing.

Great Temple is replaced with the Blood Altar(almost the same as the Ziggurat version). It'll allow you to build Orc Shamans.

The Orc Line-up, as seen in the primary screenshot, down the Tiers from left to right:
Red Dragon: The normal fire Dragon you know. Has Red Dragon Terror - the orcs in this unit's party want to prove their worth to their dragon overseer - or at least that they're worth more than the other Orc. All of them get +1 Melee damage and +1 Defense.

Red Dragon is mutually exclusive with the Glutton:
Orc Glutton: The normal eating monstrosity you know, now with lore close to it's AoW 2/SM version. A result of inbreeding amongst the highest society of the Orcs, they like eating. Gas Breath becomes available on Silver Medal.

Orc Assassin: has Assassin's Strike along with Shoot Poison Dart. Has a modified version of Backstab, which also works on ranged attacks. It has Pass Wall on recruit level, and gains an normal version of Backstab at Expert(Stacks with the modified one, so +12 on melee flanking), and Sprint on Elite.

Orc Warlord: The old badass from the original Age of Wonders is back. Starts close to the Shocktrooper, gains Killing Momentum, Bleeding Wounds at levels, with Elite medal providing Total Awareness for killing even more opponents.

Orc Shaman: The old acquaintance from AoW 2/SM, having Inflict Curse, Enfeebling fever and Energy Drain. Sacrifice instantly kills a unit you own, and heals all your other units for 10 Health. It's damage is on the nerf list though, so don't get to exited. It'll remain strong, though.

Doom Crows: No bats close, so these will have to do. Having First Strike and Greater Life Steal, these are the ultimate units for taking down lower tier enemies. At Elite rank, they get Avoid Attacks, which renders them completely immune to Attacks of Oppertunity, for even better use of their Backstab.

Black Knight and Orc Priests remain unchanged at T2. However, due to circumstances, the Black Knights can get Life Steal and the Priests can get Mark Blood Sacrifice.

Kobold: The Kobold has rejoined the orc race. I didn't change them - they're plenty strong as is.

For the rest, pretty much unchanged, except the Impaler and the Razorbow switching places - the first is now recruitable from the barracks, and the second from the War Hall.

Wow, I'd like to see how this project pans out, it looks awesome so far.

Well, the idea's always been AoW1, though I've borrowed some nice things from the future, like in this case gluttons. The project may someday be completed, but not anytime soon I'm afraid. And if it's gonna happen, it's not gonna be compatible with the current versions of the mods, since I'v learned a lot since I started this and there's a couple of things that can be done much better.
