I wonder why orcs are on the list. We already have orcs (and they're awesome).

I think a combined race/ layman orc guild sounds like an amazing idea.

I think the racial offers sword, so perhaps building further on that.
I would think it fun if they had a special based on them biting the enemy, inflicting some sort of poison/wound damage. It could, instead of direct damage, be a heal-block. So healing the target only yield X % of what they otherwise would get.
And then another special based on the sword.
2 specials in a layman is a lot though, so player can make a choice of which, every x hours.

Building on sword you'll just end up with either mercenary or BDA orcs. I like the idea of a poisonous bite, however. I'd much rather see it go towards fatigue or deliberate leg-injuries, subsequently adding more sticky-combat to pvp, alternating to anticoagulative bleed for pve.

However, -I- always pictured a layman orc guild as one of two:

Warg rider: special dependent on the animal.. slash, bite, whatever.
Uruk-hai: Permanently altered combat specific stats to provide caid according to layman restrictions.

Warg raiders would be great but that's pretty much covered by Throtyl Raiders now.

Uruk-hai layman upgrade for orcs with stunning special (like the orcs in Moria and the camps have) is an interesting possibility...
