Dark orcs are monsters in ADOM. They are rarer and stronger than most orcs, and can smash doors.

Special abilitiesEdit

  • Can break down doors

Common statsEdit

Level: 1, DV: 15, PV: 8, Hits: 36, Attacks: 2, Damage: 6-20. Speed: 100.

Corpse effectsEdit

Dwarves refuse to eat orcs unless they are starving. All other races can eat orcs with no ill effects. Eating dark orcs can grant +1 Strength, or increases strength potential if it's at limit. It seems to be working only if PC's strength is below 36.

Monster memoryEdit

This variety of orc is usually only seen deep underground, despising the sunlight as much as the dark elves. Their skin has darkened and their dark vision is even better than other orcs. Their residence in the deep earth has removed the weaker and slower members of the community, and so they are generally to be acknowledged as potentially dangerous.


One of the few breeds of orcs that always live above the ground, her skin has been burnt to black leather by the sun. Unlike other orcs, she doesn't squint in the light but grins broadly, displaying an assortment of yellow-to-black jagged teeth.
