The eruption of wild energies exposed the corruption of greed in many people in vicious ways. The orcs are the ultimate expression of selfishness and greed. Orcs came from those who raped, murdered or acted with wilful disregard for the well-being of others. The overwhelming number of orcs came from people working in financial services, but anyone who was interested solely in advancing themselves at the expense of the people around them was a risk of becoming an orc. Orcs are now found in all lands affected by the wild energies, even if magic is not strong there.
