About

This beast is a sturdy war dog commonly used by goblins, gnomes, and halfling warriors. These beasts are a result of worgs and mastiffs breeding. They are usually outfitted with studded leather armor.

Loyal Companion. The jarog is stubbornly loyal and will sacrifice itself for its rider. However, this stubbornness results in conflicts, especially with goblins. Jarogs will also fight for each other and work well as a pack.

Brave Beast. This beast will never back down from a fight and has little fear of larger opponents. There are even stories of jarogs fighting off packs of worgs.
