Big Brute [Racial]
You bear a stronger resemblance to your ogre
parent than your orc
parent in size and appearance. Your physical stature lets you function in many ways as if you were one size category larger.
Your base height is one foot taller, your base weight is 40 lbs heavier, and your skin color is anywhere in the range of dull yellow to dull brown. Orc becomes a bonus language instead of an automatic language, and Giant becomes an automatic language.
Whenever you are subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as during grapple checks, bull rush attempts, and trip attempts), you are treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to you.
You are also considered to be one size larger when determining whether a creature’s special attacks based on size (such as improved grab or swallow whole) can affect you.
