Historically, Gor'Togs were enslaved and used by the S'Kra Mur as heavy laborers. Fortunately for the S'Kra, most Gor'Togs of current times hold little enmity toward their former captors; due in part to thoroughly Toggish philosophy of "if it ain't broke, don't break it". They have a reputation for being the biggest, strongest, and most physically powerful of all the common races.
Coupled with that is the perception that Gor'Togs tend to fall by the wayside in the brains department. While it's true that you'll rarely see a Gor'Tog Moon Mage in the Realms, this fact still didn't keep great 'Togs such as Uthmor from helping to outwit the wily Elves in the Resistance Wars, and rumors still persist of a Gor'Tog Paladin claiming to be Lanival during the beginning of the Dragon Priest Insurrection.
For a moment, nothing appears to happen. Then, slowly, the Gor'Tog figurine begins to speak in a deep rumbling voice, the words carefully chosen: "I am Gor'Tog. Gor'Tog is strength. Gor'Tog is endurance. Gor'Tog needs not magic or cleverness, Gor'Tog has much trust in self. Elven are faster, but Gor'Tog does not need fast, Gor'Tog has might. Dwarven are strong but Gor'Tog is stronger. Halfling is clever but Gor'Tog finds the straight way, no need for tricks."
You gaze at this slow-worded being. Tall and well-muscled, dark green skin covers a massive, hairless frame. Dark eyes look out, lacking sparkle perhaps, but forthright and true in many ways. Like an enduring oak tree or massive boulder, the Gor'Tog radiates a sense of solidity and permanence.
Gor'Togs have an average lifespan, living on average 90 years, but sometimes reaching up to 115.
Racial minimum and maximum heights by gender:
|Minimum Height||Maximum Height|
|Male||8 feet||10 feet|
|Female||7.5 feet||9.5 feet|
Average gestation period: 12 Elanthian months
Gor'Tog can conceive children only with their own kind.
