I don't think that everybody is suffering from total amnesia, so
if humans see orcs, they will remember that those are the guys who
slaughtered a whole lot of us some time ago (during the Cataclysm (or whatever
it was called) and will react in very negative fashion.

Also, if you are fighting for your survival, you don't want anyone else
to come to steal your goods. You would be very suspicious of strangers
during those times..

Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards,

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
	for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
