Half-Giants

  • +2 Strength, +2 Constitution, -2 Dexterity: Half-giants are tough and strong, but not too nimble.

  • Giant: Half-giants are not subject to spells or effects that affect humanoids only, such as charm person or dominate person.

  • Medium: As Medium creatures, half-giants have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.

  • Half-giant base land speed is 30 feet.

  • Low-Light Vision: A half-giant can see twice as far as a human in starlight, moonlight, torchlight, and similar conditions of poor illumination. He retains the ability to distinguish color and detail under these conditions.

  • Fire Acclimated: Half-giants have a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against all fire spells and effects. Half-giants are accustomed to enduring high temperatures.

  • Powerful Build: The physical stature of half-giants lets them function in many ways as if they were one size category larger.

Whenever a half-giant is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as during grapple checks, bull rush attempts, and trip attempts), the half-giant is treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to him.

A half-giant is also considered to be one size larger when determining whether a creature's special attacks based on size (such as improved grab or swallow whole) can affect him. A half-giant can use weapons designed for a creature one size larger without penalty. However, his space and reach remain those of a creature of his actual size. The benefits of this racial trait stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subject's size category.

  • Naturally Psionic: Half-giants gain 2 bonus power points at 1st level. This benefit does not grant them the ability to manifest powers unless they gain that ability through another source, such as levels in a psionic class.

  • Psi-Like Ability: 1/day-stomp. Manifester level is equal to 1/2 Hit Dice (minimum 1st). The save DC is Charisma-based.

  • Automatic Language: Common. Bonus Languages: Draconic, Giant, Gnoll, Ignan.

  • Favored Class: Psychic warrior.

  • Level Adjustment: +1.

After being shackled up, Eya looks around at the others in the cell with her. She looks to Kiven first and says, "Aloro, your brother seems like a real ass. I wouldn't mind adding him to my rapidly growing list of shitstains to kill. I'll help, but only if I get the ears after."

Eya then inspects her shackles and tests their strength a little. She scoffs, "They expect these to hold her?" She looks to Jesla, "You there, warrior of Gorum, God of Battle and Lord in Iron. Jesla, right? That's what they called you earlier. Listen Jesla, I can tell just by looking at these chains that they are far too weak to hold you. BUT, if you attempt to break free right now, you would alert the guards immediately from the noise." Eya nods in the direction of the guards down the hallway, then continues, "If you're serious about bathing in their blood, which, by the way, is a favorite pastime of mine, then bide your time for now and wait for the right moment. Side note, blood bathing is actually good for the skin. It keeps the aging down. It's a shame we can't flay them alive too though; we don't have the luxury of time." Eya sighs, seemingly disappointed.

"You all might be wondering why they went through the trouble of branding us if they're just planning to execute the majority of us tomorrow. Well, the branding iron the used had magical runes inscribed on it. You saw them too, right Aloro? Anyway, the scar created by that magical branding iron is permanent and no amount of healing can make it go away. Essentially, they didn't just brand our physical bodies, but our souls as well. You could cut off your arm, regrow it with magic, and the brand would be right back there again. Why do they do this you might ask? Perhaps it's to humiliate us, to brand us forever as the Other, the Forsaken. That's their terminology, not mine. But perhaps that's only part of the reason."

"So, why am I telling you all this? Because I think we can all break out of this place if we play our cards right and work together. I'm Eya by the way."

Out of Character: Probably obvious but Eya keeps her voice low enough so that the guards can't hear but loud enough for the others in the cell to hear.
