Other Non-humans

 

In general, kobolds, orcs, ogres, giants, and their like tend toward animism. They believe that all things, animate or inanimate, have a soul with spiritual and physical power. The souls of slain creatures and beings join with and increase the power of the killer. Scattered groups of these non-human creatures worship arch-devils, lesser devils, and demons such as Asmodeus, Baalzebub, and Barbed. An even smaller number of these creatures follow one of the evil, neutral, and good deities listed above. For example, the peaceful half-orc Utarg Tribe of the Hidden Forest worships Mielikki.
