Half-Ogres (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



This race is the union between an Ogre and a Human, not to be mistaken with an Orog, which is the union of an Ogre and an Orc.


Half-Ogres are as versatile in personality as their human parents, as they are in most things. Their Ogre heritage leaves them more likely to be angrier, more brutish, and less patient. A half-ogre raised among ogres would suffer in the pack as being considerably smaller and able to be picked upon, leaving them often needing to prove themselves before they earn any respect. This can end a Half-ogres life prematurely. Among humanoid civilizations, they are often an unwanted blemish on society. Much like Half-orcs, but far less common, Half-ogres have no place they can easily call home.

Physical Description[edit]

Half-Ogres are larger than the average human, but much smaller than the average Ogre. They are more thickly built than their human parent and reflect their ogre parent's muscle, but are often more gifted by the aesthetic of their human parent. Half-Ogre's skintones range from yellow to dark blue and their hair can be any color of their parents.


Half-Ogres don't have any particular relations with other races, as they are a small population and do not usually group together.


Usually chaotic neutral. While they have the versatility of their human parents and their environment contributes highly to their disposition, Half-Ogres have a natural tendency to resist rules and cages. Free spirits, and more ruled by their own internal compass than the ways of the world, they are usually prone to do 'what they want, when they want'
