  • Grab: The ogre's slam attacks have the grab ability. When the ogre hits a target up to his size with a slam attack, he deals normal damage and can attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.

The ogre has the option to conduct the grapple normally, or simply use the part of his body he used in the grab to hold the opponent. If he chooses to do the latter, he takes a –20 penalty on its CMB check to make and maintain the grapple, but does not gain the grappled condition himself. Each successful grapple check he makes during successive rounds automatically deals the slam attack's damage. Ogres receive a +4 bonus on combat maneuver checks made to start and maintain a grapple.
