    At the end of book 8 we are introduced to a ragged group of orcs and presumably someone hidden since there is a mention of five pairs of eyes, and only four orcs remaining. Do you guys think this will be Richter's first nonviolent meeting with a chaos seed (that he knows off, he could have walked right past a chaos seed in Law)?

    Will he find others down there, held as slaves and low-level workers for various factions?Or will they be warriors?

    Will he recruit them or kill them off?

    Speculation is fun :)

    From something that was said in the Epilogue with Alma (after she has sent some Experience to Richter and we have a brief look at what he is thinking) I think that the encounter with either the Orcs (then or later with other Orcs?) didn't to do well, but I could e just reading it wrong. :confused:

    Do the names of the orcs have any earth culture reference? Easy way to determine which one(s) are chaos Seeds

    Ryuu: street fighter Mc so could be like heman with it being a gamer tag. Ryu also means dragon in Japanese as well as being used in different Japanese martial arts schools and styles. Example: Hiten mitsurugi Ryu (flying heavenly sword style) of Rurouni Kenshin fame.

    I think there was be slaves down there of some type. Maybe goblins or maybe kobolds. But slaves of conquest or raids rather purchased. More akin to slavery within Africa between native ethnic groups than any of the trades systems from outside.

    I don't know about the other set of eyes looking back at him, I hope it is not an error. I am a little surprised with their use of fine though, do these guys not have dark vision?

    Orcs usually do not have dark vision.

    They usually have Twilight and Night Vision and many have a short range basic Dark Vision, some types (subspecies) can have a very limited/weak short ranged Thermal Vision but Torches would massively extend their range of Sight, so having them would make sense even if they did possess a weak version of Dark Vision.
    Depends on what version of Orc your talking about.

    I'm pretty sure the orc slaves in drizzets home city had some sort of fully dark vision. I can't check on it though.

    So just doing a DnD check, it seems every edition of dnd (on the fandom site) monster manual has them with dark vision.

    It seems they do so I was wrong, at least when it comes to dnd. It seems elves and dwarves do as well, though that hasn't been my impression in the land. Might be one of those differences Aleron likes to sneak in.

    Ya it looks like elves a variety of dark vision. Something about seeing in low light, like full light and full dark, like low light. Interesting.

    Hey, mini request, feel free to disregard
    It's really hard to read your comments on dark mode with your font color, would you mind possibly using a slightly lighter color of blue? Again not a big deal but thought I'd ask, pic for reference Screenshot_20200208-123233.jpg
