Habololy Main 

    The Oldest Orc

(The Overseer, The Eternal)

Less is known of the Oldest Orc than nearly any other deity of Habololy.  What is known is that he is the most powerful of the deities, sitting in judgment above all, but never interfering.  His existence is said to pre-date the creation of the world, but his arrival on Habololy, when he brought the orcs, gnomes, and dragons to the world, is a recorded fact.

           

Those that worship him do out of respect.  His followers are not greedy, nor tremendously devout.  Other religions let his followers be, because they fear the power of the overseer, which has never been brought to bear, but which always looms.

           

More than any other religion, the Oldest Orc’s is based on faith, for he is the only deity that never appears to his faithful.  The vast majority of the faithful of the Oldest Orc are orcs.  The religion’s most ancient methods and dull services are as much hallmarks of the orcs as they are of the religion.

           

Virtually all artwork and description of the Oldest Orc portray him as a grandfatherly-looking orc.  White hair, recessed eyes, a think cane, and heavy skin.

The Oldest Orc – “The beginning and the end reach out their hands to each other.”
