Autistic DM (he/him)
Hippo Build screams "tough", to me. Big guy that can shrug off most shove and grapple attacks, and is doubly better at them than most people. I don't like the mechanic, but I certainly don't get the "these UA Giff aren't tough!!!" complaint.There is nothing in the giff race as presented in the UA this thread is ostensibly about that represents them being tough. That's all I'm talking about. Certainly you can do stuff to make your giff tough, but under these rules the things you can do have nothing to do with it being a giff.
