|Hill orc sergeant|
|Sees in the dark?||Yes|
Hill orc sergeants are monsters in ADOM. The sergeants are considerably tougher than regular hill orcs; and thus are much stronger than regular orcs. They are able to throw an orcish battle axe as a ranged attack. They appear uncommonly in dungeons, and may be encountered along with large groups of hill orcs in hilly areas in the wilderness. They move around in a diagonal pattern, which has the side effect of them often avoiding altars.

Dwarves refuse to eat orcs unless they are starving. All other races can eat orcs with no ill effects. Eating hill orcs trains Toughness as well as Toughness potential, providing one of the few ways to increase Toughness well beyond its maximum available due to herbs.
The most stubborn and hard-headed of the hill orcs manage to bully enough others to achieve a position of authority. These are used to getting their way and will not hesitate to use force to accomplish their will, whether against orc or any other opponent.
