Description[edit | edit source]
Personality[edit | edit source]
Orglash were wild and chaotic, but thought of themselves as protectors of the land. Orglash seemed able to sense if one was a foreigner to the land. They might remain motionless at a distance and allow a native to pass by, but they would certainly attack someone they considered an outsider.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
An orglash was immune to all cold and cold magics and could regenerate its health in freezing conditions, but it suffered against fire magics. An orglash was especially resistant to the magics used by Thayan wizards. Some orglash could take the form of a powerful whirlwind, much like an air elemental.
Society[edit | edit source]
Orglash were solitary creatures. A single orglash protected a single locale, usually a mountain peak, valley, or other cold place. They expanded their territory in the winter months and would travel over all the land during those times.

Ecology[edit | edit source]
Orglash could only survive in cold temperatures, so they were most commonly found in winter, though they could also survive in some springtime temperatures. They were injured by temperatures above 60° and could not maintain the form of their bodies in temperatures over 100°. Such temperatures did not kill them; they simply had to return to an area with colder temperatures or wait until the weather cooled to be able to resume their natural forms again.
Reputation[edit | edit source]
The Rashemaar had mixed feelings about the orglash. The creatures defended the land of Rashemen against the Red Wizards of Thay, but they also sometimes attacked native Rashemaar. It was argued that the orglash cared only for the land of Rashemen and not its people.
