    It??s time to play a game! Jon gives you some images of six giants, and you can choose which giant you think each one depicts. You??ll have some help by way of descriptions, though, so you??re not going into this blindly. Are you ready to give this a shot?

    I'm really hoping that those aren't the finished product.


    I'm guessing that Mr. Wyatt was talking about minimal pigs and cows if the hill giant is 3 times the height of a man.

    ( minimal pg 83 1e MM2 )

    Especially D and E. The Firegiant (D) looks like a batsman playing the sport of cricket.

    My communities:

    A looks like a half-orc.
    B looks like a titan, but mostly because of the lighting-bolt sword.
    C looks like a frost giant.
    D looks like a shaved dwarf.
    E looks like a human.
    F looks like a giant caveman.

    So, 2 1/2 (titans are large, but not quite a giant) out of 6.

    I feel like a grognard when I say I want them to look just like they did in 2nd and 3rd Edition.

    I want everything to look like in 2nd and 3rd Edition. ^^

    I only see a frost giant and a hill giant. And that is ONLY because one has viking horns and the other is half naked.

    For me it's the 1st Ed Monster Manual (one of the greatest D&D books of all time), each one drips with vibe.

    No kidding.

    A) Looks like an orc or half-orc. Nothing very Cloud Giant about it to me. Surely if they enjoy the finer things in life, they'd wear shoes? Clubs are hardly the snazziest weapon either.

    B) I sort of see it, but it looks more like a confused old man.

    C) Sure, looking close, the lack of colouring removes a lot from the Frost Giant. They should be clear though, do they feel the cold or not? Either they do and wear clothing for it, or they don't and wear normal stuff.

    D) Obvious, but ugly. Ridiculous sword.

    E) A bit out of proportion I think - too much of a belly, not enough legs, but captures the barbarism well.

    F) I like this. Stone Giants always have this mysterious, otherworldly quality about them that comes across here.

    Also, the heights are wrong - giants should get taller as we move up the hierarchy. The minimum should be 2 storeys working upwards to maybe 5 storeys?
