Re: Let's Read the Tome of Horrors, Mk. II: the Book Strikes Again!
Cool thread, just like the old one.
Nice to see this one revived.

Combining the best of both worlds, the CR 1 ogren is strong and steady (+6 Strength and +4 Charisma) like an ogre and as intelligent and clever as a hobgoblin, if a bit uncouth (-2 to Charisma). Basically, they're what you want as a DM desiring a clever and powerful warring species or a player wanting to play a rather strong species without intelligence penalties.
The bolded part bothers me, though. It appears to be a typo. What do they actually get a +4 bonus to? My guess would be Constitution, but you might want to check and fix that.
