If there are any subspecies, add a section for each of them.
Separate section for hybrids: ideally, hybrids would have both strengths and weaknesses from both (or all) the species they originate from. Add some pointers here; no strict rules because each hybrid will probably have different genetics.
As the Gotland Orcs are a warrior people. their magic are sentered around defending, attacking and healing. Specialized attack mages, defense mages and healers exists.
The Gotland Orcs shown to be good with magic are taken away and put to fight each other to show their strenght. As there are few Gotland orcs with magic, they are not made to kill each other, but rather hurt each other to the point of one giving up or deemed too dammaged to continue fighting.
