A Ga'h'tarr is one of the very small number of pureblood orcs who survived the war of rage and resisted the turgma.

Pureblood, or high orcs, have much in common with their half-orcish cousins. This is because diluting orcish blood usually assists the orc in resisting the turgma, allowing for greater size, strength, and intelligence. Gah'tarr, however, tend to be smarter than either Uk'tarr or half orcs, and often display a mystical or spiritual mindset, along with a talent for shapeshifting and grenkak (orcish elemental magic, basically, druidism).

Physically, Gah'tarr are almost indistinguishable from half-orcs. Skin tones run from deep green to blue, and hair is usually black, although rare gah'tarr are born with white hair, and this is almost always accompanied by mystical talents.

RECOMMENDED ATTRIBUTES AND FEATS

Gah'tarr are highly intelligent by orcish standards (int around ten), and also usually have higher-than average wisdom. High strength and constitution is extremely common, and ga'htarr can take a lot of punishment.

Common feats include toughness, alerness, and great fortitude.

COMMON CLASSES

Each class is followed by its gah'tarr name

Ranger/War Shaman
Barbarian/Warfist
Druid/Grenkak
Soulweaver/ The Shapeless
Cleric/Shaman

sorcerers and wizards are almost totally unknown among Ga'htarr, and most do not have the focus required to be fighters or weapon masters.

ALIGNMENT

Ancient orcish religion revolves around the K'thasta, or twins, basically Ath'endal'lynn and Arynaesis. As a result, most Gah'tarr tend towards chaotic and neutral alignments.
