Now, that is cutting the edge to new race but I'm currently thinking to twist the Nybelmarian Orcs (except the Orcs of Orcal) into beings created by the Chosen as a mixture of humans and Orcs to have loyal troops and servants.

Let's say the main idea behind it is that they're quite mad that the Elves, humans and dwarves killed their "God". I have always a problem that "normal" Orcs should be loyal to anyone than themselves. It wouldn't fit their chaotic, power-hungry and aggressive tendencies to obey to someone without gain to themselves... so this might be an interesting workaround(and somehow something I would like to have seen in LOTR because I always hated the always evil Orcish warbands that easily obeyed to any dark wizard coming along though it has reason.)

hmmmmm.....What immediately springs to mind for me are ather things they might have tried....why just mix them with humans? Why not some of the other races....there are a bunch of good qualities that could be grafted into orcishness by a scheming chosen....

I guess halforcs would be a good idea and a valuable addition. Similiar to the "Realms of Arcania" RPG (german "Das Schwarze Auge") perhaps? In this RPG halforcs e.g. live in certain towns in slums as simple workers or outcasts, see e.g. the 3rd PC game of this series "Shadows over Riva". This direction would be interesting to have in our world as well, I guess.

Still thinking about that one.

I don't want to mix races freely so I want these Halforcs being some kind of "creation".

About Greybarks suggestions. Is the opposing element of Fire Water or Wind?

I'm thinking if Elves mixed with Orcs are possible? Currently I still see some flaws in it so any input is welcomed...

Basic idea is the one above, to have loyal servants that combine the strength of several "pure" races. Another thought would be that some of the other races were "created" by that time, too. Maybe "Gnomes" and one others? Just a thought free to reject as I haven't seen a cosmological origin described and maybe the WoC is the right time for many new beasts, plants and also some sentient folk to be born...

Opposing would probably be water. But Water extinguished fire, the wind fans the flames, so I'm guessing elves are better in a metophorical sense.
