  • Crushing Hug. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 36 (9d6 + 5) bludgeoning damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 17) if it is a Large or smaller creature. Until the grapple ends, the target takes 36 (9d6 + 5) bludgeoning damage at the start of each of the shadow ogre‘s turns. The shadow ogre can’t make attacks while grappling a creature in this way.

This huge, terrifying creature is covered in wrinkling orange skin. Lighting flashes from its eyes and when it opens its maw, you can see a double row of serrated teeth.

Holiday horrors infest malls, lashing out in a rage at early holiday shopping. When they face significant opposition or are in danger of being discovered, they summon a shadow ogre: a lumbering monstrosity that, once it arrives, can only end in the death of everyone in the mall. Shadow ogres are only satisfied by sacrifices, which the holiday horrors are only too eager to provide, but even then a sacrifice holds off its rampage for just a single night.

During the day, shadow ogres tend to stay hidden in underground areas, sleeping in basements and sewers. They can easily venture forth using their shadow step to snatch unwitting shoppers.
