Ogres are large, unintelligent, slow but incredibly strong humanoids related to Goons. Ogres like shiny objects, and as such frequently hoard gold. These stashes are often protected in chests that the Ogre might carry with them. Ogres are often employed as guards. The Kobold Magic User of Spielburg Valley, for instance, had set an ogre outside the Kobold's Cave, until it was slain by the Hero.
Female ogres (called Ogresses) are much more intelligent than males, and some are even able to gain command of magic.
