Commentary & Description:
Distantly related to the subterranean reptilian troglodyte of legend - not to be confused with the subterranean humankind which has taken the name troglodyte as a badge of honor - greater trogs are bipedal reptiles of tremendous strength and viciousness. Greater troglodytes are stronger than most ogres and entirely fearless. Fortunately, the are also as stupid as ogres.

Greater Troglodytes are naturally residents of the vast swamps that make up much of Inner Aerth. There they wage their war for survival with other creatures of similar size and ferociousness.

Some years ago, Greater Trogs began appearing amongst the armies of the Reptiliads. The Reptiliads use Trogs primarily as shock troops as they are exceedingly difficult to control. The typical trog is good for one battle before it becomes more interesting in eating its kill than it is in fighting more.

Worst still, the Reptiliads have apparently trained some trogs to use both armor and weapons. Trog armor is a combination of scale and plate made from the chitin of giant beetles. This results in either half-scale with plate add-ons or simply plate-add-ons. Shields have also be employed by some trogs. Weapons are typically of the ¬huge║ variety; two-handed swords, huge axes or even massive halberds.

Greater Troglodytes seem particularly fond of horse flesh and will often completely forget a battle to run down and kill a horse which has the miss-fortune to come within scent.
