#RPG – A Month of Monsters – Ogroids

43636810_10216547860467100_3285431105611628544_nYou can buy this piece of stock art, for as little as $1 this month as part of a promotion. We have a promotion running all month, 31 pieces of monstrous stock art, one a day until all are at on sale culminating on the 31st for Halloween.

This piece depicts a face-off between an ogre and a mage, and if that’s gotten to close combat, then something has gone horribly wrong…

Ogrillions are the unstable, half-ogre offspring of ogres and other humanoid or goblinoid races. Ogrillions are almost always mules, infertile dead ends to a bloodline most often born of abuse and violence. Sometimes though, just sometimes, a half-ogre is born who is not infertile and who is something more than just a freak of nature. Through these rare exceptions, ogre blood can enter familial lines and sometimes comes to the fore, creating a throwback in which the ogrish blood expresses itself in temperament, bulk, strength and tenacity.

Two fates await such throwbacks, either being discarded and spurned by their communities as their ogre blood wins out, or winning over their communities with the good humour and adaptability of their more human side.
