The Last Days
One of the first races to inhabit Khorvaire, orcs reside all across the western half of the continent. With the exception of a few that live in the major cities where they have been accepted, most live on the outskirts of the human nations.
Not surprisingly, many orc tribes are savage, barbarous raiders. However, the Gatekeeper druidic tradition arose among the orcs of Eldeen, and orcs who dwell in or near human nations often make concerted efforts to adapt to more civilized lifestyles. House Tharashk accepts orcs within its ranks, and in the Shadow March communities orcs and humans live together.
LANGUAGE CHANGE: While 4th Edition orcs speak Giant in the regular system, Eberron orcs speak Goblin, due to their connection to the Dhakaani Empire.
