Orogs are fierce orcs of the Underdark, chased underground by Elves and Netheril thousands of years ago. They stand six and a half feet tall and look like big mountain Orcs. They have large pale eyes which are sensitive to light. Orogs speak Orc and Common.
Orogs live in large cavern cities. Recently, however, many have wondered towards the surface and taken control of mountain Orc tribes. Due to their their charisma and strength, they’ve found it easy to bully the lesser orcs into subservience. It’s not uncommon to find Orog warlords leading Orc armies in northern parts of Faerûn.
Orogs are masterful smiths; forging weapons and armor is a skill practiced in all Orog communities. They prefer heavy, spiked armor and simple weapons, such as greatswords. They sometimes trade with Drow and Duergar, who acknowledge the productivity of their mines. The orogs’ superior equipment and the fact they enjoy the spoils of war rather than the mindless fighting make them considerably dangerous and succesful in their campaigns.
Orogs are the result of the union of a male orc and female ogre. They are highly disciplined warriors and it is easy to distinguish an Orog from a common orc on the battlefield.
An Orog's favored class is fighter, and Orog leaders tend to be fighters. Orog clerics worship Gruumsh (favored weapon: any spear) and can choose two of the following domains: Chaos, Evil, Strength, and War. Most orog spellcasters, however, are adepts. Orog adepts favor spells that cause damage.
