d30 Challenge Day 20

d30 Challenge Day 20
This is my 20th entry in the d30 Challenge, which is a bastardization of an idea I first saw on Mark "CMG" Clover's feed. Now I'm a sucker for these things and I know some folks aren't so while I'm committed to answering one question about my favorite hobby each day, and putting together a d30 table before the end of the month, I know not everyone is so interested. I'll put the question & answer after the break, posting late in the day, and not promoting this on G+ so those who don't like this kind of thing should be exposed only minimally.

I think this is the best I can do....
Day 20's question is "Favorite Humanoid/Giant/Fey".

Finally...and easy question for me!

Without a doubt, my favorite humanoid to use, as a GM, is the humble Orc. I find Orcs to be the perfect humanoid monster, especially as they are portrayed in HackMaster. Now my bias for HackMaster is quite clear, but I seriously think that the D-Team over at Kenzer & Company did an outstanding job with Orcs and if it was within my power I'd put up the four+ page write up in the Hacklopedia of Beasts.

Orcs might not seem all that big of a deal, but when you factor in their leaders they can easily scale up for higher-level encounters. Now I'd say that HackMaster orcs aren't for everyone and some groups would bristle at their....."reproductive" habits, but they work as a great villainous groups for all manner of campaigns.

Give me a pig-faced, filthy & crude orc over most other monsters any day.....
