CV Race: Ogres


OgreThese are closer to the Norse Trolls than the bestial ogres of previous D&D editions. The Ogre is a humanoid powerhouse. On average 8 ft. tall and almost as wide and weigh 500 to 800 lbs, an Ogre is best described as a large slab of pure muscle. Ogres may have any colour hair or eyes; their skin is usually rough and callused all over. Often their teeth are overdeveloped tusks and many have horns (approx. 75%) (which may or may not have symmetry); facial features are always very deep set and crude. Their body proportions differ from humans, with the ratio of arm-to-leg length significantly greater, giving them an advantage in melee combat. Ogres have calcified skin deposits throughout their body, which can resemble large warts, spines or an armor-plated effect. These skin deposits make ogres more resistant to physical trauma.

Ogres are considered to be pretty dumb. However, it is truer to say they are extremely gullible. They frequently believe anything they are told, as they lack the facility to distinguish lies from truth. This often leads to fanatical (and misplaced) devotion to even obscure causes, a fact that armies play on with glee. Indeed, Ogres are ruthlessly taken advantage of due to their dubious intelligence and, aside from the occasional rabblerousers, nobody (including many Ogres) cares about how they are treated.
