Mixed blood (Ex)
For all special abilities and effects, an half-ogre is considered an ogre. At the time of character creation designate one other race either Human, Orc, or Goblinoid and is considered a member of this race as well. For example, orogs can use special ogre or orc weapons or magic items with racially specific ogre or orc powers as if they were ogres or orcs.
Heavy Handed (Ex) At second level, thanks to their excellent leverage half-ogres may wield a two-handed weapon designed or sized for a large creatures. When using a weapon in one hand or a ranged weapon this ability has no effect. Also, a half-ogre, if proficient, may employ a tower shield at a -1 penalty to attack rolls rather than the usual -2.
