Goliaths, descendents of the Giants, hail from the Steelspire mountains of Borea. They have always been a rare sight throughout history, due to their isolationist cultural practices. Many goliaths aren’t “true” goliaths, but are the product of interbreeding with humans. Because of this, their appearance can vary almost as widely as humans, with the full range of tones and colouration. Goliaths have the following features:
Ability Score Increase. Your Strength score increases by 2, and your Constitution score increases by 1.
Age. Goliaths have lifespans comparable to humans. They enter adulthood in their late teens and usually live less than a century.
Size. Goliaths are between 7 and 8 feet tall and weigh between 280 and 340 pounds. Your size is Medium.
Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.
Natural Athlete. You have proficiency in the Athletics skill.
Stone’s Endurance. You can focus yourself to occasionally shrug off injury. When you take damage, you can use your reaction to roll a d12. Add your Constitution modifier to the number rolled and reduce the damage by that total. After you use this trait, you can’t use it again until you finish a short or long rest.
Powerful Build. You count as one size larger when determining your carrying capacity and the weight you can push, drag, or lift.
Mountain Born. You have resistance to cold damage. You’re also acclimated to high altitude, including elevations above 20,000 feet.
Languages. You can speak, read, and write Norse and Oeridian.
