Big, Mean & Green.
9:00 AM EST | Brad Custer
In World of Warcraft from Blizzard Entertainment the savage, green-skinned Orcs are one of the most prolific races of Azeroth.
They are commonly believed to be brutal and mindless, possessing no humanity or empathy for other races.
Born on the hellish world of Draenor, the Orcs were brought into the kingdom of Stormwind through the dimensional gateway known as the Dark Portal and forced to wage war on the Humans.
Although few are aware of their history, the Orcs once cultivated a noble, Shamanistic society on the world of Draenor.
Tragically, the proud Orc clans were corrupted by the Burning Legion and used as pawns in the Legion's invasion of Azeroth.
The Orcs managed to rebel, however, and they were ultimately able to help turn the tide against their demon masters.
Led by the young Warchief, Thrall, the Orcs have reclaimed their strength and honor.
Now, the Orcs stand ready to fight not for the sake of conquest, but for their right to survive in their adopted world.
The Hulk could take a few lessons from these green behemoths. ;)
Since my last venture into the realm of World of Warcraft I have received several emails asking me to feature the Horde.
Of course I am more than happy to honor all requests especially for a game as popular as this one.
I've always been partial to the big green guys so they seemed to be the natural choice for this week's creation.
With the help of Blizzard Entertainment I was able to create this week's wallpaper.
I simply entitled this selection, "Brutal", and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. :)
Everyone be sure to keep those requests coming in.
