Noble Ogre (Igurna)

by Joe Mashuga & whoisrube


Note: This entry is a bestiary version of the Igurna. For (N)PC racial information on the Igurna, look here.


This nine-foot-tall humanoid leers at you with obvious malice in its eyes. Its muscled body is clearly visible despite its blue-brown skin, and its weapon thumps in its hand menacingly.

Known as Igurna in their own tongue, noble ogres are powerful and broad-featured descendants of Krynn's original ogre stock. Noble ogres favor loose clothing and most avoid armor, since it can interfere with their spellcasting abilities.

Noble ogres speak Igurni and Common, and most know at least one or two additional languages.

Noble Ogre Lore

A character knows the following information with a successful Nature check.

Nature DC 15: The Igurna are a very reclusive race who rarely are even seen by those outside of Terragrym. They have little care for events going on in the rest of the world unless it impacts them directly. Many are trained in how to ride strange creatures seen nowhere else on the continent.

Nature DC 20: Those who travel to close to Terragrym are often captured and never seen again. Only the Teusten humans have been allowed to enter their waters. Noble Ogres are often skilled in the languages of those few foreigners they do interact with because they do not believe any non-Igurna are worthy of hearing their tongue.

Nature DC 30: Igurna are not the ugly creatures many in the southern lands believe. They are in fact a strong yet beautiful race perfectly combining muscle and grace. The Noble Ogres of Terragrym are protective of their lands because they have developed magics and other devices of power that no other races have access to.
