So long as they remain focused on their inner spirit, the Ren’kai are extremely kind.


The Vek Orcs have their eyes on the stars and the heavens above. They seek a life beyond the world they were born in, attempting to learn prophecies and seek counsel in the stars to learn how their wars will go.
