Stone Giant Profile

Stone Giant Profile - Dungeons & Dragons Online -

The official site for Dungeons and Dragons Online has updated with a monster profile examining Stone Giants.

Stone giants are difficult to generalize about. When in battle, a stone giant can hurl great boulders with devastating effect. When back in the friendly confines of their mountain abodes and feeling playful, they throw rocks directly at each other for fun, and a wonderful time is had by all. They have an interesting culture, and almost all stone giants have a great fondness for stone and stonework, and use the material in art and architecture, as well as in combat.

Stone giants do not have any real weak points. Luckily they also lack any powerful resistances. Like all giants, they have great strength, but each stone giant pursues his own path, whether that be the life of a humble artisan or a vicious evil warrior. One time, while on a journey, my party and I were helped by an extremely friendly stone giant. Alas, this is not the place for me to regale you with the details of that humorous episode. I will say, however, that only because of him did we succeed in our mission.

Now I don't have to tell you all stone giants are not this helpful. Many live in extremely insular communities that shun all outsiders. Some war-like stone giants constantly raid weaker settlements around them. Some are powerful clerics who wield dark magic. I feel certain that many of these evil stone giants hold sway in Xen'drik, trying to claim a share of the fallen giant empire for their own. These stone giants would much rather launch lethal rocks than engage with you as a helpful travel guide. I wish you good luck against these tough, stony foes.
