War is all that you know. For your clan, war is a permanent state of being. Just as you need meat to sustain you and leather armour to protect your leathery green skin, war keeps your thirst for chaos and violence sated.
Your clan now gathers to prepare for the war against the goblins. The creatures used to be your allies, but in the last battle they became cowardly and ran. Now there is nothing more to be done than to hunt down every one of them and serve them over your fire.
You begin by picking up Choppa, a sword wrought using the scavenged weapons of your enemies.
Epic Armoury’s Choppa is a rugged latex sword designed as part of the Orc Universe collection, perfectly suited for warrior brutes and warlords alike. This 110 cm long sword has an 80 cm blade sculpted and handpainted to appear forged from different metals after seeing numerous battles. The crossguard is a notched to look like broken wood, protecting the rugged 20 cm handle wrapped in top-grain leather.
The Orc Choppa is a perfect match to the Orc Short Sword or the vicious Cutter. Made from durable closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your orc-inspired kit.
