The ogres are a race of humanoid beings, fierce and cruel monsters, that eat human flesh; they are also shy and cowardly, and have little or no Intelligence and cleverness, which makes it easy for men to defeat them. A female of this race is called an ogress. Ogres are said to be able to change their shape at will into animals or objects, and they often dwell in marvelous palaces or castles, sometimes underground, Ogres are often depicted with a big head, abundant and hirsute hair and beard, a huge belly, and a strong body. Adult ogres stand 9 to 10 feet tall and weigh 600 to 650 pounds. Their clothing consists of poorly cured furs and hides, which add to their naturally repellent odor.

Ogres favor overwhelming odds, sneak attacks, and ambushes over a fair fight. They are intelligent enough to fire ranged weapons first to soften up their foes before closing, but ogre gangs and bands fight as unorganized individuals.
Their inherent bent toward chaos combines with their size and Strength to make ogres natural barbarians. Indeed, their leaders are almost always barbarians of low to middle level, monstrous brutes whose fury in battle is truly fearsome. A raging ogre barbarian is an inspiration to other ogres.
more intelligent than his brutish fellows, an ogre barbarian is slightly more
likely to enter a fair fight, but in general prefers the brutish tactics common
to all its kind.
(Ex): Twice per day, an ogre barbarian can enter a state of fierce rage that
last for 9 rounds. The following changes are in effect as long as he rages: AC
17 (touch 8, flat-footed 17); hp 95; Atk +18/+13 melee (2d6+16, +1 Greatclub);
SV Fort +14, Will +4; Strength 30, Constitution 22; Climb +15, Jump +16. At the end of his rage,
the ogre barbarian is fatigued for the duration of the encounter.
Sense (Ex): An
ogre barbarian has a +1 bonus on Reflex saves made to avoid traps. He also has
a +1 bonus to his AC against attacks by traps.
Uncanny Dodge (Ex): An ogre barbarian retains his Dexterity bonus to AC regardless of being caught flat-footed or attacked by an invisible opponent. His Dexterity bonus to AC is +0, but this means that he is not subject to a rogue's sneak attack in these circumstances.
