D&D 5E Firbolg Variant


Using this variant as a 5e conversion for Ogiers from Wheel of Time. Please give me some feedback. Is it OP?
I've based this off of the WoT Sourcebook for d20. Ogier had A LOT of abilities including lowlight vision and +2 to Fort saves which I didn't try to justify here. They DID have a ban on spellcasting, martial weapons, exotic weapons, heavy armor, and medium armor. I did not try to justify the ban on spellcasting here either.
