An Orc, the most common Greenskin species.
|Type||Group of Species|
|Location||Llevigar Plains, Olux Swamp, Pre-Light Forest and Canyon of the Lost in Gavel Province|
|Information||A group of green-skinned species, varying in size and power. They do have some notable intelligence, though when compared to other intelligent species, Greenskins typically fall behind.|
The Greenskins are a group of species inhabiting the western Gavel Province and the Canyon of the Lost, in the east of the province. All Greenskins have a generally greenish skin colour. They often lack in magical potential and intelligence, but make up for it with their typically high physical strength. This category of species includes Orcs, Trolls, Ogres, Goblins and Hobgoblins. Sometimes, Gerts are included within the definition, though they are a separate species (if they can even be considered a species).
The Greenskins mainly live in the Llevigar Plains, which has been their home for an unknown amount of years. However, they probably predate the Villagers in the regions, as the Villagers only conquered the west some centuries ago during the royal Villager rule of Gavel. The Orcs and Goblins, the main Greenskin species in the Llevigar Plains, have several camps spread out across the plains.
The Orcs are the most common type of Greenskin seen in the game. They are a warring species with a clear military hierarchy, and have been an issue to Villagers for some time, with both species making multiple attacks and operations against each other. However, recently, the Villagers and the Orcs signed a ceasefire which continues to this day.
The Villagers usually think of the Orcs as very stupid, though there are a couple cases where this is proved more or less false: the Orc Chief Gregg'r was able to steal the runic Fire Axe of Llevigar from within the homonymous city, although he was not able to use it. Orcs are mainly found in the Llevigar Plains and Pre-Light Forest. In the plains, orcs are split into multiple camps, each with their own color, leader and name. A list of all the camps is found below:
Spoiler alert: The hidden text contains spoilers relating to Llevigar Plains Orc camps.
This underground camp ruled by Ceifko is right next to Llevigar. Most of the camp is an open cave, where all the orcs of the camp just live in the same space. The camp is featured in Clearing the Camps.
Located in western Plains, this green-tented camp has fire-themed orcs in it, and is ruled by a chief known as Elisu. The camp is featured in Clearing the Camps.
This camp is located near the border of the Olux Swamp. It is very brown of color, with the tents being made out of a gray fabric. The camp is well-protected by wood walls, and contains a large amount of weapon crates, meaning that the Orcs might use this camp as a weapon storage. The main tent has a large stick on a pedestal known as the "Big Smack", the use of which is unknown. This camp is featured in the quest Blazing Retribution.
Filled with mud- and rock-themed orcs, this camp is similar to Sablestone, though here the tents are brown instead of gray. In one of the tents, a potato has been placed on a pedestal, labeled "Good food". This camp is also featured in the quest Blazing Retribution.
Lying under a lake in the Plains, the Secretcove Camp is well-hidden. It is ruled by a fairly known and powerful orc chief, Gregg'r. The first area you enter once diving down the lake is a cave with a Tier 3 loot chest in it. After opening a hidden door, you must pass through some ancient ruins, and finally reach Gregg'r's main base underground, which has a large table in the middle. The camp is a major location in the quest Blazing Retribution.
The Mudspring camp is a fairly small one right at the border between the Plains and Olux Swamp. The orcs in the camp possess a large amount of water buckets, though it is not clear why.
The Sunspark camp contains orange tents and a watchtower. It is located near the swamp, and doesn't have high walls around it. The camp's orcs include Sunspark Tomewriters and Skyrollickers. The orcs here seem to use and practise simple fire magic, which is unusual of them. There is a cave underneath the main camp area, which contains a big fire, some crates and a pile of meat. A more powerful Sunspark orc known as the Sunspark Orc Altakris is found here, who can be assumed to be the chief of this camp.
Although most Orc camps can be seen as aggressive military outposts, this blue-flagged camp north of Karoc Quarry is a calmer trading outpost, where many orcs come to barter and sell a variety of items, particularly jewels.
This camp is quite well-hidden, as it has no flags and is hidden in an underground cave. There are some camps inside, and the orcs residing there are quite agile. Additionally, there is a small parkour that leads to a Tier 3 chest.
Additionally, the Orcs own a large fortress in Pre-Light Forest called Leadin. Currently, the structure has no gameplay purpose as the quest involved with it, A Fighting Species, was removed in 1.20. Recently, the Orcs have also taken over a Villager fortress in the Olux Swamp set to monitor the Orcish capital.
There exists a well-known and powerful Orc known as Gorgu, who is the leader of the Leadin fortress and possibly the entire Orcish armies, with whom the Villagers signed the ceasefire that put a temporary end to their hostilities. He is mentioned in Blazing Retribution, and he was a character in A Fighting Species, so it can be assumed that Gorgu will later have an appearance ingame.
The Trolls are a powerful type of Greenskin inhabiting the Canyon of the Lost. Common Troll body attributes include a dark green skin and different sized eyes. As seen in the Canyon, most Trolls tend to use axes as weapons. Their hair is commonly traded and bartered in the Thanos Bazaar. The Dwarves of Thanos have also captured a giant Troll and are using it to protect their vault, which contains all of the city's riches.
The Ogres are another type of physically powerful Greenskin, found in Llevigar Plains, Olux Swamp and even the Canyon of the Lost. Ogres are independent individuals, and prefer to mostly live alone.
The Goblins are small in size, and do not have as much physical strength as any of the previous Greenskins listed, but they make up for it with their higher intelligence. They are found in Llevigar Plains and Olux Swamp. Goblins are allied with the Orcs in the war against the Villagers, and even share some camps in the Llevigar Plains. A list of Goblin camps is found below:
Spoiler alert: The hidden text contains spoilers relating to Llevigar Plains Goblin camps.
This large Goblin camp is located in central Plains, and houses a couple stumps used mostly as living space. Surprisngly, despite the camp being a Goblin one, it is ruled by an Orc known as Veltu. This camp is featured in Clearing the Camps.
As can be guessed from the name, this Goblin camp is a tunnel dug under River Sage north of Bucie. Although the orange- and gray-clothed goblins here aren't aggressive, they possess a large amount of explosives.
The Goblins of this camp, Mistdawn Windwhistlers and Raindancers, are water- and air-themed, wearing mostly white equipment. The camp consists of two large stumps, one of which seems to be used as a cooking area, and the other one as a storage. A totem can be found on the top of the camp, which may be related to the theme of the goblins here.
Lastly, the Hobgoblins are a variant of Goblins living in the Canyon of the Lost. They are intelligent, possibly the most intelligent species of Greenskins, and mostly peaceful, living mainly off of farming instead of hunting. They have even expanded to more advanced skills such as casting magic and properly mining.
In the far southeastern Canyon, there exists a certain group of hoarding Hobgoblins, whose main base is found inside a large pine tree. They collect anything that they can find, including all the loot from those that get lost and die in the vast Canyon.
Llevigar Plains Camps
Not including the Orcs and Goblins that wander the Llevigar Plains, there are a total of sixteen camps inhabited by the two species across the region. Not all of these camps are hostile to players, while some are found in underground caves or other out-of-the-way locations. Several of them are involved in Quests following the Greenskin-Villager conflict in the region, Clearing the Camps and Blazing Retribution.

- Gorgu - Leader of the Leadin Orc Fort and possibly of the entire Orcish army. Currently the highest-ranking Orc known in their hierarchy. Only mentioned in Blazing Retribution, as the quest he appeared in, A Fighting Species, was removed in 1.20.
- Gregg'r - An Orc Chief from the Llevigar Plains, who stole the Fire Axe of Llevigar from the city. However, the Fire Axe is imbued with runic magic, a type of magic that Gregg'r couldn't comprehend. Thus, he accidentally started numerous fires across the Plains, desperately trying to get his axe under control. To investigate the disappearance of the Fire Axe and the various fires, Detective Jackson was deployed to the scene in an attempt to track the axe down.
- Elisu - Chief of the Cliffhearth orc camp. The Humans have been commissioned by the Villagers to take care of their, and two others', camps.
- Ceifko - Chief of the Earthpit orc camp. The Humans have been commissioned by the Villagers to take care of their, and two others', camps.
- Veltu - Chief of the Trunkstump Goblin camp. The Humans have been commissioned by the Villagers to take care of their, and two others', camps. Curiously, unlike the other two camp chieftains, Veltu's surrounded themselves with Goblins instead of Orcs.
