Hanen's familiarity with us already will theoretically make talking with them about whatever easier, but for the most part they're just a small village so there isn't much to do with them in terms of diplomacy. The location might in the future make a good secondary settlement or military base, but that'll be when we have the resources to expand that far. I don't mind making friendly with them, but with the intended goal that in time the Hanen halmes will get so used to us that when the time comes to "bring them into the fold" as it were, it'll go down smoothly and with hopefully little need for convincing them.
I get the feeling our first contact with the Orcs probably won't be a friendly one. We'll essentially just look like a competitor or a target to them. If they want to get talky with us, cool, we might be able to adopt a don't screw with us we won't screw with you policy with them and maybe build up some kind of trust from there.
But yeah, getting to either group for any kind of purpose is going to require we do some taming of the local area and consolidating our base of strength.
There is a fine line between awesome and ridiculous. Badai uses that line to floss his teeth.
