Big Book of Nasties-AGE: Chaos Ogre

These creatures are many armed giants with scaly skin and horns protruding from numerous points on their bodies. Once called Hekatonkheires, meaning Hundred Handed, these lesser current day incarnations are only 10 foot tall and only have ten arms at most.  It is rare to encounter one with more than five arms in any case, but even rarer to encounter one with simply 3 arms.

It isn’t known why, but these creatures are usually encountered singly or in small groups. They tend to play with living creatures as toys, but they can turn disastrously ravenous in little time. Chaos Ogres are somewhat dense, in both the perceptive sense as well as in the intellectual sense, but they are also cunning. Most who run into one, or worse summon them thinking they have found dumb lackeys, underestimate the creatures to their eventual, fatal detriment.

Eternal Shadows:
The Hekatonkheires are ancient foes of Atlantis, created by the touch of Typhon in the time before history. They were last loosed on the world before the Golden Age of Ancient Empires, but the memory of their ferocious capabilities was preserved in Greek mythology. Today, Ogres are often summoned individually by cultists working to do Typhon’s bidding. The creatures do not seem to possess their own agendas, but many of them murder and eat their summoners and then wander off into the wilderness.

About Byron D. Molix

I am an information technology professional in Missouri. I've been an avid fan of fantasy and science fiction novels, comic books, pen and paper role-playing games, computer games and console video games for the last two decades. My dream would be to one day make a comfortable living while having the time to pursue writing (novels, rpgs, etc.) as a full-time hobby.
