Ogres are massive men that roam the great mountains and hills of the world. Most are savage and live if tribal camps rather than villages, and travel with herds of mega-fauna and dire animals that they use for meat, tools, and materials. Ogres tend to eat an enormous amount of food, and as their tribes are often very poor at growing food for themselves, they frequently turn to raiding settlements of smaller humanoids for food and slaves (some ogres don't even consider there a difference). However, some ogres have found that the smaller races are better serving as allies, since they generally seem quite adept at growing food which they are quite willing to trade for the ogre's immense might and prowess, and an ogre can be a prized shock trooper in an army that can afford to feed them.
