That depends..... [In reply to] Can't Post

If a swarm of orcs....not long. As they are basically driven to kill without regard to pain etc. you have to really dispatch each one quickly and be ready to address the next one asap. Most likely, one competent human would be dropped in a matter of seconds if multiple attackers are present. They don't take turns attacking like in the movies...any kind of movie..be it martial arts or other.

I would certainly want protective mail with some armor, short spear, shield, sword, with back up long knifes.
Plus.....a large supply of those Saruman blasting pots...small size hand grenades.

It would end in a bloody mess and the orcs would be eating man flesh in a few minutes. People don't realize how fatiguing fighting, especially with weapons can be.

Orcs. We 21th centurers would be mere game to them. [In reply to] Can't Post

Even one single orc coud kill me. Let's be realistic here. They're though psychotic Elf mutants who've fighted and killed all their life. I'm a girl who's lived a comfortable and secure indoors life, can't use any other weapons expect firearms, don't know martial arts, aren't physically strong or endurant, my senses and reactions haven't been perfected by years of dangerous life... of course I'd be dead in a minute.

I hate it when people seem to think killing orcs is like stealing that infamous candy from the poor kid. It's almost as if they weren't a threath at all.
