Bahgtru is the orc deity of Strength and Combat.
Bahgtru appears as a huge orc with bugling muscles and dirty tan skin. His eyes are dull green, and and his glistening white tusks protrude from either side of his mouth. Bahgtru has also been described as "awesomely stupid."
Bahgtru lives in the orcish realm of Nishrek.
Bahgtru's priests wear loincloths and nothing else. His sacred animal is the ox.
Temples, rituals, and holy days
Bahgtru's holy days are on battle days, and services to honor him must be conducted on a battlefield. The bones of orcish enemies are sacrificed to him before battle.
