I play on a Neverwinter Nights persistent world module that uses the Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 rules. The module is not using the Forgotten realms setting. I'm editing and updating the module's features into a new document. The module allows players to pick different races. I want to add pictures of the various available races and a short blurb about each race's culture to help players role-play.

However, I'm struggling to locate information on tribal orcs. I'd like to have a standard setting brief physical and cultural description of this race that's drawn from official 3.5 material.(Standard means, not using settings like forgotten realms or ebberon) Is such information available?


It seems that there was an error in the module text. What the original author of the text had written was tribal orc. What he meant to write was "Gray Orc" from the "Races of Faerun" book.

The original creator of the book responded with...

My primary resources were the 3.0/3.5 D&D PHB, Monster Manual, and DM Guide. There may have been some other specialized books that I used that I cannot recall. But for the races, I may have also borrowed info from this book:

Races of Faerun (Dungeons & Dragons d20 3.0 Fantasy Roleplaying, Forgotten Realms Setting)

After searching though the book I found the "Gray Orc" with statistical adjustments that matched the statistical adjustments in the NwN module.
