A coarse and lanky orc. Urug lost his eye in a fight with a harpy, and has sworn to slay every last one of them. Unfortunately, the vision in his remaining eye is not very good, and he has mistaken you for one. He smells terrible.

U r u g, tumbled down, fallen by crumbling down. Slipped down, as earth from a hill-side, stones which have been piled up or the like. To fall as water at a cascade. To fill up a hollow by putting earth into it. To lay gravel or materials on a road. A landslip.

U r u r u g a n, apparently a plural form of 'Urug'. To go with a number of men to any work. To make war, to attack with an army. To set upon in numbers, as it were to tumble upon in masses.

-Jonathan Rigg, A dictionary of the Sunda language of Java. 1862.

Useful Info

Urug the Orcish Ballista is a unique orc who often carries javelins and wields a heavy weapon. Although she lacks any particularly unique traits, she can be a danger in melee or at range.

If you worship Beogh, she may join you as a follower.

Tips & Tricks

  • Fragile characters should try not to get stuck at range with her any longer than they have to, as her javelins can deal brutal damage. Keep up Repel Missiles and try to kill her as quickly as possible, or run and come back later. She only has so much ammunition, and will eventually run out, but trying to lure her into using them all up in one attempt is extremely dangerous.

History

Prior to 0.19, Urug's weapons were much less nasty for her depth.

Urug was made significantly more dangerous in 0.11.
