DETAILS

These are guardians left behind by Tar-Baphon—animated ogre skeletons plated in gold from the city’s repeated floods. While the undead remnants of past inhabitants form packs of mindless gold-plated skeletons that aimlessly wander the city’s ruins, Tar-Baphon’s ogres have kept their brutish cunning. These skeletal champions regularly patrol the streets in organized gangs, and two of the ogres are commonly posted to guard a key area from intruders. These ogres have enough intelligence to recognize the bearer of a special key and permit certain NPCs to pass freely, but others will have to battle their way past them.
