Ettins, or two-headed giants, are vicious and unpredictable hunters that stalk the night.

An ettin never bathes if it can help it, which usually leaves it so grimy and dirty its skin resembles thick, gray hide. Adult ettins are about 13 feet tall and weigh 5,200 pounds. They live about 75 years.

Ettins have no language of their own but speak a pidgin of Orc, Goblin, and Giant. Creatures that can speak any of these languages must succeed on a DC 15 Intelligence check to communicate with an ettin. Check once for each bit of information: If the other creature speaks two of these languages, the DC is 10, and for someone who speaks all three, the DC is 5.

Combat

Though ettins aren't very intelligent, they are cunning fighters.

They prefer to ambush their victims rather than charge into a straight fight, but once the battle has started, an ettin usually fights furiously until all enemies are dead.

Superior Two-Weapon Fighting (Ex): An ettin fights with a morningstar or javelin in each hand. Because each of its two heads controls an arm, the ettin does not take a penalty on attack or damage rolls for attacking with two weapons.

Skills: An ettin's two heads give it a +2 racial bonus on Listen, Spot, and Search checks.

I agree with the importance of distance. If someone could read minds at great distances then they have a decided advantage… but they have to be reading your mind. There are literally billions of minds out there to read… how would this mind reader know to be focused on you? And Kyrroeth is correct about abilities. It makes little difference if Jet Li is in front of you about to kick the left side of your head in and you know he's going to do it. Chance are you don't have the physical prowess to stop him. Now, if it is more of a mind control power, like Professor Xavier, that is a different thing altogether.
