[edit] Blood-Kin

Only Orc characters have immediate access to the strongholds unchallenged. Characters of any other race must first become Blood-Kin of the Orcs before being welcome in the strongholds. Without being Blood-Kin, you can enter a stronghold, but everyone will continuously tell you that you are not welcome, and you are unable to trade with any merchants in the stronghold.

There are several quests that fulfill this requirement. Members of any stronghold you approach may give you the quest The Forgemaster's Fingers if you have not become Blood-Kin already. However, if you complete any quests on the following list before receiving the quest The Forgemaster's Fingers, you will not have access to that quest. Completing any of the following quests will still give you access to Orc Strongholds as Blood-Kin and will have no related repercussions.
