THE CODES OF KRUG

Recommended Posts

[!] Within the Goi of San’Azgak, the local rune-carver Fiil’Yar emerges from her blarg with a new series of stones; A set of five great tablets, sacred laws etched into limestone portraits for all to see. For too long have the laws of Uruk-hai been lost to the annuls of time. No longer lost; The Codes of Krug.

 


Lûp’Krug, krank Uruk-hai’ob; Atish ghashan’tab. Gaakh ta traum’at ogh’tab tuk ta maarubh’tab.

STONE OF PUNISHMENTS:

In order of severity. A glossary of formalized punishments in accordance with the ancient Codes of Krug.

 

- DISCIPLINE: Exclusive to znagas; Corporal punishment delivered at the discretion of the znagagoth that may not result in death or permanent mutilation. This should be done with a goal in mind; Abusing a znaga is, itself, against the codes.

- PAINTING: A period of atonement served by painting an orc’s body with symbols, words and pigments to shame them. They may not wash the painting off until their atonement has been served.

- DISARMING: A period of punishment delivered by the confiscation of an orc’s weapons and barring from obtaining more until the punishment has been served. They may not participate in raids or challenge others to klomp during this time.

- PUGGING: A period of penance served by painting an orc’s tusks and face and encouraging the community to flog and shame them without retaliation. During this time, their klomps are invalid and they are considered honorless.

- CURSING: A period of penance served by an orc submitting themselves to being cursed by the shamans for their crimes, directly inflicting the spirits’ ire upon them for a period of time.

- BRANDING: Atonement served by the permanent branding of a sigil representing the offender’s crime.

- MUTILATION: Crippling or maiming an offender in such a way that in the future they are unable to perform their crime again; The severing of a thief’s hand, the removal of a liar’s tongue, etc.

- WHITEWASHING: Atonement served by banishment from orcish society and allowing them to be hunted with impunity. Those who are Whitewashed must undergo trials to lift their status.

- SACRIFICE: Execution carried out in the name of the spirit or spirits that an orc has wronged, optionally delivered through klomping until they are slain.

- EXECUTION: Execution delivered without the right to klomp or done in the name of the spirits, considered the harshest possible punishment, as it is a death denied of any honor.

Gakaarûg had a scribe goblin read these new codes to him and he listened intently, planning on following them diligently.

Murak’Gorkil reads the codes on the stones, worried that the ancient traditions would have been forgotten, but smiles broadly and with pride as he realizes the author’s well-read research “Ang Gijak-Izhi”
