Scrofa are unusually large wild pigs most commonly found trailing ogre mobs. Most will grow to an intimidating 1,500 lbs if they are wily enough to avoid predators (chiefly the ogres they follow), but some can grow truly monstrous. Reliable reports exist of 4,000 lb males, and tales of even larger creatures exist, though their veracity is questionable.

Tough and vicious opportunists, scrofa can get by on any kind of food available, grazing and browsing vegetation, using their tusks to excavate roots, or using their great size to scare away predators and access carrion. If food is scarce, it is not unknown for them to chase down and kill their own prey, sometimes even smaller ogres are taken in this way (though the scrofa must eat quickly before the rest of the mob joins the feast).

Scrofa are difficult to tame and train but, even so, some orc tribes utilize them as mounts, often setting the procurement of scrofa piglets as a youngster’s rite of passage to kill two birds with one stone.
