Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: No height/weight table, Graugs aren't humanoid, apparently they have to be chaotic neutral, grammar errors. Unaligned would be the correct alignment for a creature that doesn't understand morality.

"The Mighty Graug, he gave me these. *Points to all of his scars* And he also, took my hunting partner. " ~Torvin, the Dwarven Monster Hunter

Physical Description[edit]

A mighty Graug.

The Graug is a huge beast. It stands anywhere from 18 to 26 feet high. There are a few types of Graugs.

Regular Graugs: Graug are gigantic creatures. They possess troll-like characteristics, namely massive claws and teeth to maul and devour their prey. Despite their supposed lack of intelligence, they are very difficult to bring down without any support, due to their gargantuan size and naturally armor-plated scales.

Wretched Graugs: Beware the Wretched Graug! This lumbering monstrosity has been greatly impacted by the flood of scavenging Ghûls that have spread throughout the land. As their traditional food sources have dwindled, the Wretched Graug has made do by consuming huge quantities of the nightcrawlers. Often scooping the creatures up and devouring them by the handful, the poisonous innards of the Ghûls has taken its toll on these Graugs, riddling them with infections from head to toe. Hair grows where there previously was none, new horns protrude from its skin, fresh tumors appear, and a gigantic sac filled with vile poison develops at the base of the throat.

Icy Graugs: These beasts live in the coldest of area's their skin is made of both flesh and Ice.

Fire Graugs: These beasts stay near area's of intense heat like volcanos. They also are known to have a huge sack on their necks that hold a source of fire for them to breath on enemies.


Not much is known of the Graug other than they used to live in dark lands many many years ago. They have since spread around spending most of their times in caves. Not many who find them survive so new Information of these creatures is very Rare.


Graug's are very Solitary creatures. They live in caves alone and never interact with any other life unless they are hunting it. Towns and Cities know better than to purposely disturb these beasts.

Graug Names[edit]

Graug's do not take on names unless they are given by a "Master"
