Ogres are a hybrid between Orcs and Giants, a failed experiment to make controllable living siege weapons by the Third Orc Lord. While ogres are big and tough, they’re not as strong as giants and they tend towards being rather stupid as well. Some ogres have keen minds, but they don’t tend to be put on the front lines like their dumber brethren.
Despite the fact that they weren’t as powerful as the Orc Lord might have hoped, ogres can be terrifying in the heat of battle. They favor oversized melee weapons that can splatter multiple foes at at time, although this can also occur to the ogre’s own allies if said allies aren’t careful.
