Chief Otyugh

Chief Otyugh is the chieftain of Otyugh's Kraal, one of the two large ogre settlements in the Fields of Ruin.


Chief Otyugh is known to be around 300 years old, meaning that he was born around 1000 AE.[1] He has tamed a menagerie of exotic creatures ignored by most ogres in order to protect them from mistreatment by others, and has trained them to obey him in combat. Among the pets he has tamed are elusive black moas, minotaurs, which are known to be nigh-impossible to tame, Melandru's stalkers, and warthogs. At some point, he became the leader of his kraal, and chose to settle at Wildlin Narrows.[2] He was slain after a fierce battle with adventurers in his kraal in 1325 AE, resulting in some of his pets being freed.
