The Tome of Lore: Table of ContentsSryth™ Expanded Info Entry
These fearsome behemoths, now a rare sight in even the most remote and frigid
corners of the world, are among the most powerful creatures known to man.
Roughly three to four times the size of a large ogre, their leathery, grey skin covered
with ragged tufts of thick, white fur, the muscle-laden frost hulks possess unimaginable
physical might. It is said that a single blow from one of these brutes is enough to
incapacitate and kill most enemies.
Five large, angled spikes of bone, each coated in a thin layer of frost, protrude from the back of a frost hulk. Long, stone-hard
claws extend from the tips of the beast's massive fingers. The face of a frost hulk is
somwhat troll-like in appearance, though its double rows of razor-sharp teeth and massive
jaws lend the creature a much more fearsome appearance.
Frost hulks, solitary creatures by nature, live in only the coldest of climes. There, when
not sleeping (they can sometimes slumber for up to a week), they spend their time hunting
for food. Some of their favourite prey includes bears, giants, and dragons.
Frost hulks will usually take up residence in a cave or similar abode. While it's unknown
how it comes to be, it's not uncommon to find creatures of ice (all manner of creatures)
guarding the lair of a frost hulk. Some believe that the frost hulks possess the innate
ability to wield a primal form of elemental magic, which they use to summon and retain various forms
of ice elementals.
