Why Do Grimloks Wear Loin Cloths?


Off-Topic Discussions


I was organizing my home office earlier and going through my miniatures and noticed my Grimloks....
Why, if these brutes are blind, do they were clothing over their private parts?

Shrinkage? It's cold in those Underdark caverns?

Blindsight dude. Grimlocks are clearly too modest to be echo-locating each other's equipment all willy-nilly.


Their mindflayer masters make them?

They dislike getting "caught" on rocks and such?

Loincloth? I thought this was a belt.

Not long before 3ed came out, there was a Dragon article that talked about monsterous humanoids for PCs... Grimlocks were presented as one of the races and I actually quite liked the take on it. They had brutish tendencies, but were a bit more urbane. They had an appreciation for fine things as well. Being blind, their senses of smell and touch are greatly increased and they love nice fabrics, artwork that incorporated smells, and things like that. It was a pretty far cry from the normal take on Grimlocks which are mostly just not as stinky troglodytes or Time Machine-esque Morlocks. Since there are LOTS of cavern dwelling primitive sword fodder to choose from, I liked them in this altered capacity.


Because the have an innate fashion sense and nothing is more unfashionable than a naked grimlock.

well they could wear them on their heads??

gangsta grimlocks!!


Uh yeah, I think a loin cloth would get in Grimlock's way whenever he turned into the T-Rex.

Stupid miniature-makers, shyah!

Maybe Grimlocks are self-conscious about size. It's bad enough they are going to get slaughtered and looted - they don't want adventurers laughing at them as well.

You don't want to know why.


Interesting replys... at least half a dozen I would have never thought of

Prevents direct exposure of tackle to cold breezes and drafts?

Now that's the Grimlock spirit!


Hey, you try finding a guy willing to make you a double breasted suit after you eat him and his family...


To quote Blackadder IV

Lord Flasheart: Enter the man who has no underwear. Ask me why.
Lieutenant George: Why do you have no underwear, Lord Flash?
Lord Flasheart: Because the pants haven't been built yet that'll take the job on!

It is easier to find the loin cloth in the dark and blind then the TP.
