    Default You vs. Orc

    Orcs are generally portrayed as being terrible fighters, with everyone killing them by the thousands. They have to zerg in order to accomplish anything at all.

    Do you think you would be able to take an orc in single combat? You can choose whether you want hand-to-hand or melee weapons, but no ranged weapons.

    For the sake of this discussion assume LOTR orcs, not some random fantasy copy you pull out of your ass.

    I could take an army of orcs on. I've been prepared through flurries of fantasy and strategy video games. Hell, in Morrowind I even made an orc character once. I understand how they think.

    Somehow I don't think that's from the Morrowind character.

    Are you suggesting I really am an orc?

    I'm suggesting that you really know how an orc thinks.

    I realize OP said LOTR orcs, but I don't care, this was an awesome book, all told from the "badguy" perspective.

    Quote from the first page:
    Stryke couldn’t see the ground for corpses.
    He was deafened by screams and clashing steel. Despite the cold, sweat stung his eyes. His muscles burned and his body ached. Blood, mud and splashed brains flecked his jerkin. And now two more of the loathsome, soft pink creatures were moving in on him with murder in their eyes.
    He savoured the joy.

    Depends. Is it the Uruk-Hai Orcs (half orc half elf) or the Mordor Orcs?

    Mordor orcs are probably easily defeatable. Uruk-Hai would probably be much more difficult to kill.

    I'm an orc psychologist. Most orcs suffer from some mental condition like Beserk or orc rage or something.

    Taking down an Uruk Hai is like fist fighting Chaka Zulu.

    Give me a swiss army knife and ill give you a thousand dead orcs.

    But if an ork shows up i might have to change my priorities.
