Text guide to getting all the achievements in the action RPG, Of Orcs And Men.
 
 

Introduction

Of Orcs And Men is an action RPG, basically the sequel to the Styx games. This game has many achievements, and most of them are chapter-specific, and missable. There’s no chapter select, and don’t count on autosaves, since if you are forced into a cutscene before doing something, sometimes it leads to another cutscenes that saves over it. To be safe, make a quicksave before talking to characters.
 
 
The chapter-specific achievements are listed in a chronological order and most are missable, unless noted otherwise.
