A giant is a humanoid-shaped creature of great strength, usually of at least Large size.
A giant possesses the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry).
- Low-light vision.
- Proficient with all simple and martial weapons, as well as any natural weapons.
- Proficient with whatever type of armor (light, medium or heavy) it is described as wearing, as well as all lighter types. Giants not described as wearing armor are not proficient with armor. Giants are proficient with shields if they are proficient with any form of armor.
- Giants eat, sleep, and breathe.
Though Technically the same type, distinction should be made between True Giants and giant like creatures as with True Dragons and other draconic beings. True giants are those that are descended from the ancient Giants of Xen’drik
