The One Ring: Fellowship of the New Alliance
The Orcs of Mirkwood are wiry, pale creatures, mostly inhabiting the caves under the Mountains of Mirkwood and haunting the ruins of Dol Guldur.Their long limbs and bony hands are surprisingly powerful, a characteristic that many enemies discovered too late.
When they leave their underground lairs they smear filth and mud over themselves, to better hide in the gloom of the forest. They are excellent climbers and trackers, and often clamber through the canopy instead of travelling along the ground. They have a special terror of Spiders, as Forest Goblins are one of the most common snacks for a hungry spider.
