Ork is a German-only pbem game. The player assumes the role of a Chief of an orcish tribe. The aim is as usual: to become the boss of bosses, in this case called "High King of the Black Empire". The methods are somewhat unusual. You are NOT a honourable king fighting for your rights but a murderish and sinister orc fighting for the largest part of the pillage.
Economy, magic, military, religion, luck, diplomacy - these are the key factors of the game.
The game lasts typically for about 20 to 25 turns. Playing it is free. The host program is shareware. There is a Windows tool available (MyOrktool) which helps a lot.
Ork is steadily developed since 1986. It is not humour-free, but it is only understandable by players who know their German quite well.
