    Default Lesser Giants (Poisoned World 3.5)

    Lesser Giants
    Descended from the giant's breeding experiments, the Lesser Giants are a race bred from the giant's own stock. Lesser Giants are much smaller than their close cousins, but are much stronger and tougher than those without giant blood. Lesser giants hold no ancestry to the other lesser races of Belladonis.

    +2 Strength, +2 Constitution, –2 Dexterity: Lesser Giants are tough and strong, but not too nimble.
    Giant: Lesser Giants are not subject to spells or effects that affect humanoids only, such as charm person or dominate person.
    Medium: As Medium creatures, Lesser Giants have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
    Lesser Giant base land speed is 30 feet.
    Acid Resistant: Lesser Giants have a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against all acid spells and effects, as well as energy resistance to acid 5.
    Low-Light Vision: A Lesser 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.
    Powerful Build: The physical stature of Lesser Giants lets them function in many ways as if they were one size category larger. Whenever a Lesser 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 Lesser Giant is treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to him. A Lesser Giant is also considered 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 Lesser 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.
    Endurance: Lesser Giants have Endurance as a bonus feat.
    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A Lesser Giant is automatically proficient with all simple and martial weapons, light and medium armor, and shields.
    Automatic Language: Common and Giant. Bonus Languages: Draconic, Gnoll, Ignan, kobold.
    Favored Class: Barbarian or Sorcerer
    Level Adjustment: +1

    Lesser giants typically stand from 7 feet to nearly 8 feet tall and weigh from 250 to 400 pounds, with men noticeably taller and heavier than women.
    Lesser giants speak Common and Giant.

    Because of their giant ancestry, lesser giants are able to use weapons sized for creatures larger than normal humans. They gain considerable satisfaction in using these large weapons in combat against their foes.

    nearly identical to the half-giant, this was my way of keeping them as a race, removing the human parentage from the equation.
