Orcs – the cockroaches of any true fantasy kingdom. They're creepy, loathsome and capable of existing in seemingly inexhaustible numbers. In the land of make-believe, if you turn over a rock, expect to find an Orc. Kill one, and two take its place. Kill two, and now you've got five on your hands. And a whole horde is probably waiting in the background.
