Word of advice - if you mention Trinimac to Lothgud, he'll cut you off.
Why do you say that?Ask any Orc why he does something. Code of Malacath this, Malacath commands that ... but where is this code? Nowhere. It means whatever we need it to mean.
What's your issue with the Code of Malacath?What's not to hate? Only the chief may marry. Only the chief's wives may remain in the clan - pah! Trust me, the chief and his wives aren't the only ones "marrying," no matter what lewd name you put to the act.
So you don't worship Malacath?Malacath. Daedric Prince of Vengance. Daedric Prince of Always Making The Same Mistake, more like. No, I'm a follower of Trinimac, and I don't care who knows.
Why Trinimac?Simple. That priestess in Orsinium made me and Balarkh husband and wife. She said it we were married in our hearts, we were married for real.
Do you mean Solgra?Yeah, she's the one. Chief Abzug wasn't too happy when he heard, but there was nothing he could do about it. His own daughter converted once she married King Kurog.
