Half-Giant
rating: 0+x

By jhubertjhubert

These are half-giants from Athas, the setting of Dark Sun. For a complete description see the original publications.

55 points.

Attribute Modifiers: ST +10 (SM +1, -10%) [90]; IQ -2 [-40]; HT +1 [10].
Advantages: Damage Resistance 2 (Tough Skin, -40%) [6].
Disadvantages: Chummy [-5].
Features: Size Modifier +1.

While the original boxed sets would justify Size Modifier +2, I decided to tone it down a little and split the middle with the half-giants/goliaths from Dark Sun 4E to make them more playable in confined spaces. Besides, making them even bigger and stronger would probably be overkill with a gritty rule system like GURPS, and a world like Athas where decent armor is very scarce…
