What kind of sword/s might orcs use? Specifically what kind of sword/s might they use that also fits their characterization as brutal, somewhat savage, warriors. While still being practical, realistic and capable of getting the job done.
- Must be, or be closely based on, a real sword.
- Work well against different armors, if it works the best vs specific armors, you must provided an explanation for why this fits for orcs.
My orcs while brutish, and generally inclined as a culture to be lazy, are still formidable warriors and while their weapons are not as finely crafted as the greatest works of men, elves or dwarves, still suffice; their weapons aren't the best but not the worst either.
They spend much time on inter tribal warfare and the occasional raiding of human farms and villages. They are semi-organized at the best, depending on the leader, and generally resemble a mob of jostling warriors all trying to get at the enemy. Despite this they can manage be clever and pull of tactically smart moves.
