From my books 'The Witchhunter Chronicles':

This picture is part of a series showing some of the different folks and races from my fantasy universe.
on the picture, you can see the original german name as used in the books.

Orcs live in the great steppes of the east. They form nomadic clans with strict rules and traditions. orcs are skilled warriors and often work as mercenaries for the other folks in case they need money (if they want to start a family for example).
because they work for any folk that hires them (except flower fairies!) most people had to fight orcs even when they were actually in war with dwarves or humans.
hence orcs became the ultimate concept of the enemy for everybody, even if they served them loyal on some other occasion.
it does not surprise that the orcs didn't want to join the alliance of peace under that circumstances; they despise double standards.
