A giant humanoid monster found stomping about in the evil plains. Their low howls can be heard long before they are seen.

Ogres are huge, violent humanoids found in evil plains. They are highly aggressive, able to destroy buildings and strong enough to make short work of war dogs and inexperienced dwarves. Ogres usually appear in groups of 1-3, which can prove a deadly threat to a new fortress. An attack by ogres in the very beginning will make short work of most unprepared embarking attempts. Ogres are now also seen in sieges, where goblins may bring them instead of trolls. It is interesting to note that a clothed ogre is a lot tougher than a troll, as in able to often shrug off masterfully wielded, masterwork steel battleaxe strikes.

Ogres, Ogresses are easy to give in to pain, from a couple of bone bolts.
