Ogres and Trolls

Ogres and Trolls are collectively large, brutish giants who are quick to smash and slow to think. What they lack in beauty and brains, they make up for with their size and strength. Though they were once considered separate cultures, over the centuries they have become so similar in demeanor and abilities that many find them difficult to distinguish. Some few ogres do sometimes see the light, a bit, and have some sense born in them. Giants are deadly killers who use their brute force to kill and eat everything they can get their oversized hands on.

Giants are the biggest race in Norrath , reaching a height of ten feet tall, and are almost always warriors or an offspring of one. They spend much of their time battling against others: comparable to the amount of time an Erudite spends researching in a library. The Giant spends most of his time hunting for food, as they have extremely large appetites. They are, justifiably, quite single-minded. Their thick skulls also give them a high level of resistance to being stunned in battle. In the jungle of the Feerrott , the Ogres live in Oggok. Trolls live in the mountain abode of Grobb.

Giants often follow Rallos Zek, their creator, but may sometimes be servants of Cazic-Thule.
