So you know how we always go on about orcs and elves and rape.
What the fuck would a half orc half elf be like?
That's not how math works. . .
Personally, I'm thinking a /fit/ elf with green skin, shorter ears, a few mismatched teeth but not proper tusks, a flatter, more Mongolian style nose.
As for how it'd function, well, that depends on how it's raised, doesn't it?
Actually, really, the real answer is "Depends on the Setting".
This is relevant to my interests because a buddy of mine asked to play the child of two previous characters in the next D&D 5e game I'm running, which takes place 25 years after the last one
The mother is an elf and the father is a half-orc and they are happily married
Depends on the setting. I've played in settings where orcs could breed with anything and the child would always be full orc.
It was also magical realm and there were no females within the orc species itself... but I didn't know this going into the game.
In my D&D settings, only humans have the divine gift of fecundity (though certain supernatural beings like dragons and outsiders mimic it), and with it the ability to interbreed with anything and everything.
In more typical settings I guess you'd say that "half-[whatever]" is so commonly used to mean a human/whatever hybrid simply because of statistics; but that dworcs and dwelfs and... erls? happen occasionally as well.
Leaner than a half-orc, thicker than most half-elves. A strange mixture of crude and refined in features. Probably very variable. Teeth neither tusky nor small and elegant. Ears not quite long and pointed but more neatly shaped than the almost goblin like ones of many orcs.
Neither race is especially adaptable. Even tempered between the coldness of elves and the tempestuous tempers of orcs. Orcs see well in the dark, but are otherwise squinty and pig-eyed.
You know, thinking about it, I kind of feel like you'd just end up with a kind of culturally hide-bound brown human with really good night vision.
Dead, they never make it to birth, if the elf is the mother she likes dies from complications, this is a terrible union after all. The fetuses are then reanimated by orc necromancers to create a magically potent undead thralls.
From Frederick Anderson, the guy who gave us the Bard Who Can't Keep It In His Pants, comes the lineage of a grumpy little half-elf/half-orc girl. The artist felt that orc/elf didn't work directly, but you mix in some human between and it goes smoother.
Much censoring, but to be expected given the artist.
Assuming >>44634465 isn't right and magic somehow conquers genetics, I imagine something like this. Still probably has loads of growth defects like how ligers suffer from their gigantism.
I like how we're just outright dismissing the possibility of an elf forcing an orc to impregnate them/forcibly impregnating an orc.
Who /truefae/ in here?
