After the survey for ancestries, i noticed a part where we were asked if orcs should be a core race, along with their half brethren. I think it is an important question, though personally Im all for it. I mean we got goblins so orcs arent that big of a stretch. Also am i the only one who thinks allowing half-orcs but not full blooded ones feels a bit weird? Are half orcs really that common?
What do you think about this?
Hmm. In past editions, the +4 Str -2 to all mental stats is a little problematic. It's just a little hard to look at that and call your non-Orc martial optimized.
However, I like the idea of making them a core race. ESPECIALLY if it sets a precedent for playing as other "monstrous" races.
I've had a player who has wanted to play Vampires for a while now, but Pathfinder doesn't support Vampire/Lycanthropy/Undead very well.

As somebody who has since for ever treated orcs as a core race in my homebrew and made the half-orcs (and half-elves) a very niche and rare existence that is considered remarkable rather than mundane.
I've experienced my players having a much deeper appreciation for all three.
Half-breeds are more special while people who want to play a beefy race that is truly defined by it feel much more at home in their orcy-orc rather than diet-orc.
I'm all for it even though it's essentially pointless for me as I homebrewed them in already anyway. Having official support is always nice though.
