Ogre Brute (Greater Worthy)
rating: +1+x

By Mailanka

Not all Ogres are “civilized” enough to be delvers. In fact, most aren't. The Ogre Brute represents the typical Ogre found in many dungeons and caves, snacking upon the bones of human children, covered in furs and stolen clothes, staring at heroes with fat, drooling lips and empty, vacant gazes, before bellowing and striking with their massive clubs.

These ogres are meat-shields, pure and simple. They charge, they attack, they throw their considerable weight around, and they smash heroes in a single swat, if their clumsy blows strike home. Smarter dungeon monsters tempt them into service with promises of nice food and, uh, pretty ogres?

Other ogres might include… oh, who am I kidding, this is pretty much all ogres out there.
