A gigantic creature resembling a human, almost unparalleled in size.

Giants are building destroyers and semi-megabeasts of great size attracted by wealth just like regular megabeasts and titans. They dwell in caves, and if you happen to embark near one, you may be in for a quick dose of fun. You will get a warning message when they appear.

They are similar to the cyclops and the ettin, and can be stopped with a simple cage trap.

Female giants are known as giantesses.
