Ogre, Winter Exile

★ ★
(playtested)

Savage Outcast

There are few crimes among the mountain ogres; theft, bloodshed and cannibalism are all acceptable. Any ogre who manages to break taboo is caged and starved until the bleakest night of winter, when the cage is unceremoniously dumped before some dire beast’s lair.

Though the sentence is harsh, any survivors of exile are welcomed back after the first thaw. Some ogre leaders brag about their time in exile, a halcyon season spent in defiance of nature. Of these, a select few even bring back a companion: A barely-tamed dire beast.
