Orcish Beastiary explores the Orcs of Middle-earth. Based in part on the writings
of J.R.R. Tolkien & Christopher Tolkien, from The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion,
The Histories of Middle Earth, and the Unfinished Tales:The Lost Lore of Middle-earth
we also include parts of the extended lore found in the films by Peter Jackson
and also some of our own writings and inspiration created here at The Land
hope this will be your favorite library of choice when searching for knowledge
about the Foot Soldiers of Shadow... the Orcs of Middle-earth!
An invaluable source as always has been the Encyclopedia of Arda, one of
the best sources for information on all aspects of Tolkien's Middle-earth. In
addition to the text, we have included the visual imagery from many illustrators
as well as Peter Jackson's & New Line cinema's Lord of the Rings.
Below is a list of the artists and musicians who's creative works have brought
our Orcish Beastiary to life.
