Ogres are big and ugly, over 9 feet tall. They are violent and generally ill-tempered. They live by raiding and scavenging, and want everything they see. Ogres can rarely be trusted and will argue with anyone over treasures. They will try to fit in with their traveling companions, although they aren’t disposed to sharing whatever the group may find.

Ogrish skin colors range from a dead yellow to a dull black-brown, and are very rarely a sickly shade of violet. The warty bumps that cover their bodies are often a different (usually darker) color than their hides. They have purple eyes with white pupils and their teeth and talons are orange or black. They have long, greasy hair that ranges in color from a blackish-blue to a dark green.

Restricted (level adjusted) races can automatically be rolled on HM accounts in creation. Other un-rollable combinations (atypical alignments or classes for a race) will need to be requested via the avatarmail command, and are usually likewise restricted to HMs and those players with a prior standard of good roleplay. Please be patient – depending if the request is unusual, it may involve some discussion before it is approved or denied, so these applications usually take until the following weekend or so to process. In such submissions, please include a description of your character’s personality and general attitude, as well as at least a moderate summary of their history – it does not need to be a full background, but we must know what has shaped your character, and what their current attitudes and nuances are, in order to approve or deny the request.
