*trying to keep good conversations in this community going lol*

So I'm introducing the races listed above and others as bred races, created by an evil Druid and some dark rituals. The druid is basically capturing people and transforming them into anthropomorphic animals, hence the races (warthog + man = orc!). I want to have my 1st level party begin to encounter them, but since I haven't used any of those races in a game in almost 4 years, I was looking for some compelling ways to introduce them. I thought I could begin by having one "orc" come back to his home to his family, which he had been missing for for over 10 years. When they locked the door, I was going to have him lose his temper (after all, he was more beastial now) and chop down the door, kill his wife's new husband, and generally start tearing things up.

Besides that, I want the party to begin to encounter these peoples out in the wild. What are some interesting setups you can think of? What has worked in your games?

Well since it sounds like you're reflavoring the races, most other people's setups with those races may not apply. That said, I like where you're going with this.

I guess part of it depends on what role you want these races to fill. Are they supposed to be the standard "evil civilization?" Are they a race of servants for the druids? Are they generally running amok?

I like your idea with the orc. It might be even stronger if the PCs have encountered these creatures as crazy monsters already, so that they're prejudiced against the race.

An interesting adventure might be a group of these guys who want to be changed back. So they go to the PCs for help in finding the magic/druid to restore them to their proper form. And of course one of them ends up being a traitor at some point.

It seems like you have an interesting backstory for the race, and now you can pretty much do whatever you want with them.

Wow, that would be interesting. Thanks for the tip! They are running amok AND servents of the druid. No one can control that many servants.
