Giants have incredible, inverse-square-law-defying strength, and can use a club or hammer to quickly smash through barriers that would take a team of humans with a battering ram much longer to penetrate. Their skin is similarly thick, allowing them to shrug off flights of arrows and sword blows that would severely injure a member of a lesser race. However, this incredible prowess in battle comes at a cost, and giants are only barely capable of feeding or dressing themselves. Their one instinct is to smash, so they usually require a team of Goblins or orcs to tend them outside of battle.
Like all orcish races, giants have fairly good night vision, but not infra-vision, but they are somewhat too large for underground life, so unlike their smaller brethren, the Nethar rarely keep giants as slaves.
