|Dungeons & Dragons creature|
The ogrillon first appeared in first edition in the original Fiend Folio (1981). The player characters confront an ogrillon in the Keep of Adlerweg, who wears the counterpart to a magical glove that they are seeking, in the module The Gauntlet (1983).
The ogrillon appeared in second edition for the Greyhawk setting in the adventure module Greyhawk Ruins (1990) under the "ogre, half-" entry. The ogrillon appeared in the Monstrous Manual (1993) under the "half-ogre" entry.
The ogrillon appeared in third edition in Dungeon #83 (November 2000).
The ogrillon is a species of half-ogre, being the fruit of an (unnatural) union between ogres and orcs. The ogrillon displays the general tendencies of its larger cousins with some exceptions[attribution needed]. It is even more brutish and violent, and it normally learns to speak only orcish and handful of words in common.
The ogrillon is the about size of an orc and closely resembles one. One in ten is born with the features and colorations similar to those of ogres. The skin of an ogrillon is covered with small horn plates giving it strong natural protection and allowing it to fight without weapons.
Ogrillons were encountered in the Baldur's Gate video game of the Forgotten Realms setting.
