In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the quaggoth is a monstrous humanoid.


Quaggoths are sometimes enslaved by other races, notably drow.


Quaggoths usually live in underground lairs.

Typical physical characteristics[]

Quaggoths are about seven feet tall and covered in shaggy white hair, though brown-haired quaggoths are sometimes seen.


Quaggoths are usually neutral in alignment.


Quaggoths are savage, bestial hunters who live in nomadic tribes.

Quaggoths in Greyhawk[]

In the World of Greyhawk campaign setting, quaggoths live in cold regions above ground. They are most commonly found in the Forlorn Forest, but have also been encountered in Blackmoor, the Burneal Forest, the Cold Marshes, the Hraak Forest, and the lands of the Tiger and Wolf Nomads. In ancient times, the quaggoths were far more numerous, but thousands were slain by elves in the War of Extermination.

The most notable quaggoth in the Flanaess is Shag Solomon, a "civilized" quaggoth who plays a minor role in the Age of Worms adventure path.
