History

Ogre history is often not documented and thus most is lost over the years, but one singly stories is known even to most Ogres. The story of how Asgard once tried to cultivate the Ogres and how this failed. Ogres are mostly nomads, there tribes travel all over the lands around and in Utgard. At one point in history the Ogres encountered the Asgardian races by travelling to far from their birth place.

The Orc culture revolves around two main pillars: combat and honour. As a result, a great deal of conflicts are resolved through means of ritual combat. These sessions of ritual combat have very strict rules and regulations, which are very rigid. To break these rules would mean great dishonour, a shame no Orc would want to live with. Contrary to popular Midgardian and Asgardian belief, these combats are rarely to the death. Most Orcs even frown upon such permanent resolvement of disputes, as killing the other would mean one less honourable Orc who can fight dishonourable Asgardians.

Orc politics is a slightly chaotic mess built up around the race's concepts of individuality and honour. It can be roughly broken down into three levels: in-house politics, alliance politics and great house politics.

In-house politics

When the Orcs were a young race just set loose upon the world, Ratish taught those who would listen about warfare. Among the things he taught was the observation that no group of creatures can survive without the leadership of a single creature.
