Thieves & Kings
The Skull-Bashers – a vicious band of ogres – plague many of the out-lying farms and steadings of Thornkeep. Like most ogres, they are a sullen, lazy band of violent brutes.
The clan are notorious for their habit of taking captives alive back to their dens, where they reputedly bash in their heads and boil the wriggling bodies in their iron kettle. Known as a “bone boil”, they are very fond of it, to the point that they go to extensive lengths to capture their prey alive, using crude nets, bolas and simple flails made of ropes and vines to subdue people for later stewing.
The caves of the tribe are believed to be somewhere north-west of Thornkeep.
