Pummel (Ex)

If a degenerate ogre succeeds on both slam attacks against a single foe it may immediately pummel the target into oblivion, dashing him on the ground like a rag doll or savaging him with fists and a headbutt. The victim takes an additional 2d6+8 damage and must immediately make a DC 20 Fortitude save or be dazed for 1 round.

Utterly Psychotic (Ex)

A degenerate’s inbreeding results in its mind abandoning any semblance of rational thought. They are immune to any mind-affecting effect and know no fear. Also, anyone attempting to commune with a degenerate’s mind either though telepathic communication or similar magic immediately takes 1d6 points of Wisdom damage. Additionally, degenerates do not register pain and ignore any effect that stuns or dazes them. They also fight unhampered until reduced to –10 hp.


Environment temperate or cold hills
Organization solitary, pair, gang (3–4), or family (5–16)
Treasure standard (hide armor, greatclub, 4 javelins, other treasure)

Some ogre tribes inbreed with such tenacity and enthusiasm that their already fragile gene pool buckles under the strain. Over time, these degenerate ogres turn feral, go blind, and develop grossly bulging limbs and chests.
