Orc bloodline and orc subtype


Rules Questions

Does the orc subtype from the sorcerer orc bloodline add the entire subtype - stat mods, weapons, etc.... Or just what is mentioned after "including"...


from the SRD:

The orc subtype is applied to orcs and creatures related to orcs, such as half-orcs. creatures with the orc subtype have darkvision 60 feet and light sensitivity (half-orcs do not have light sensitivity).

So only the abilities listed in the bloodline are the ones you get, because that's all there is to get from this subtype.

I guess I am looking at orc racial traits. The "including" doesn't seem like an exclusive term. "Including only" or not even saying it at all would be clearer. I do suppose not everyone has orcs of golarion... So just dv n lls. Ok. Thanks, I was just reading to much into it bc I had orcs of gol

Additionally, a character with the Orc subtype counts as an Orc for prerequisites that require being an Orc. They also count as an Orc for enemy abilities that target Orcs, like the Dwarven Hatred racial trait or for Favored Enemies.

So, in example, a Gnome with the Orc bloodine qualifies for Ironhide or Keen Scent.
