I too am testing the shoutbox for non-nefarious reasons.

This is me testing the shoutbox, because shouting is a great stress relief and it would be a shame if it doesn't work.

Now, now.. i've gone ahead and become completely upset with orcish culture and rituals.. so i've done some homework and dug up even more phrases, and i strongely encourage anyone else too keep on looking. Would be nice too see more orcish phrases in, in-game roleplay. :)

Heres a few i found:
Logre'gard Noe Kal - A question. "Where do you want me" Saying this is essentialy asking for an ordre, i suppose. Put in a sentence fx: "Aka'magosh, chieftain! Logre'gard Noe kal?"

Lok'Naroche - "Look out" or "Too arms". put in a sentence, fx a Rrosh'tul like Rarg might wanna use this. "Lok'naroche, lok'tar ogar!"

Glor'du - Another greeting, more of a mix between, Throm'ka, Mok'ra and Grom'ka. And it is, well too my experince at least a way of saying. "Have we met?" A greeting too a stranger, but also more of a sort of question. Put in a sentence most likely something like:, "Glor'du, Mok'ra, orc" or so would Grogona say it.. :)

Fit'chure - Fire, a command.

Lo'gosh - Ghost wolf, put in a sentence and considering that a Ghost wolf is something quite too be reckoned with an orc would say "Aka'magosh, Lo'gosk mok'ra" Meaning roughly translated Thank you, ghost wolf, good evening"

Lak'tuk - Suffering. Put in a sentence: "Your Lak'tuk, let me mend your wounds"
Nothing comes easy, and besides nothing easy is worth having.


Found another, not sure when we'd use it, but it's there:

Lohn'goron - Hero's Sojourn

Didn't see it up there.


Keep an eye on the previous posts. Some of these have been mentioned already! Nonetheless, feel quite free to keep the inspiration flowing!
Kozgugore Feraleye - Chieftain of the Red Blade


Groggles, It's Lok'narash which is already up there, and Lok'regar Ogal or something along those lines ^^


Nope, lok-Narash means arm yourselfs while lok'naroche means look out, two different phrases. :)
Nothing comes easy, and besides nothing easy is worth having.


I was scanning the posts for ages and I was sure I couln't find the ones I put up. Anyway, Hopefully the activity on the 'recent posts' list'll at least get people to take a look. Oh, and I'll get rid of the ones already up.


Updated the main post with all the known sentences thus far. If you think any of them are missing, feel free to add them here and, if possible, please post a source of said word/sentence!
Kozgugore Feraleye - Chieftain of the Red Blade


Updated with all the newly added orcish words and phrases of which the translations are known.
