When forks of lightning sunder the night sky and the roar of thunder bellows over the land, the people of the north say that the Dragon Ogres are fighting each other on the peaks of the World's Edge Mountains. Travellers, having taken shelter in some cave or hollow, might see the battling creatures silhouetted against the raging night by lightning flashes.
On cold winter nights terrible storms assail the mountains of the northern Old World. Like Dragons, Dragon Ogres, or Shartaks, as they prefer to be called, spend the majority of their long lives slumbering deep within hidden mountain caves. The sleeping Dragon Ogres stir as their dreaming minds hear, echoed in the thunder, the roar of the Chaos gods calling them to battle. For such is the pact that the Dragon Ogres made - they placed themselves in eternal bondage to Chaos in return for long years of life. The louder the thunder, the more Dragon Ogres wake, but only a storm of immense power can stir the oldest and most powerful of these beasts.
Dragon Ogres are energized by electricity. When roused by the mountain storms, the great beasts will compete with their brethren for the highest peak upon which to siphon energy from the storm. Woe betide anyone using lightning or other electricity-based attacks against a Dragon Ogre in battle, for it will only empower the beast more.
As lightning bolts pour from the skies, the Dragon Ogres answer the call to war. Once awakened, they battle to ascend the highest peaks and receive the lightning blasts that will invigorate them and extend their lives.

Tome Text Edit
With the upper body of an Ogre and the lower torso of a scaly quadruped, the Dragon Ogre is a fearsome sight. The Dragon Ogres, or Shartaks, as they prefer to be called, are revered by the Beastmen and other worshippers of Chaos.
Like Dragons, Dragon Ogres spend the majority of their long lives slumbering deep within hidden mountain caves. There, the Dragon Ogres, await the most powerful of thunderstorms, whose booming echoes they regard as heralds of battle.
