Nice! I guess this still has the unconverted ones in it? Also, shouldn't the Gargantua Troll be listed as a troll rather than an "other"? (Or is there something I don't know about it? :p)


Shirokinukatsukami fan
Yes, the list of unconverted giants looks like this, I think:

Bosk giant
Cave lord
Earth giant
Fhoimorien giant
Giant Werebear (Polarwere)
Gray troll
Island giant
Jungle giant
Ogre giant
Snow troll
Spacesea giant
Stonecrown Ogre
Stone troll
Swamp giant
Sea titan

Unless I'm missing it (which I quite possibly am), these two appear on the unconverted list but not in the original post:

Giant Werebear (Polarwere)


Shirokinukatsukami fan
The trow is listed under "Other sorts of giant", sixth from the end. Note that this is a creature from the Myth setting, so I'm not sure that WotC owns the IP for that one.

The "Lycanthrope, Giant Werebear (Polarwere)" from Dragon #266, p79 is, technically an unconverted creature, since it has a full page monster entry and hasn't been converted yet. However, in 3rd edition, it would most likely be a frost giant with the werebear template applied, rather than a unique creature, so I chose not to include it in the main list of giant-kin. Should I add it?


Monster Junkie
If the Trow had been a snake it would've bit me! :heh:

I think the Polarwere would better fit in an "all the different types of lycanthropes" thread than here.
