Monster of the Week - Kythric Giant

The latest Monster of the Week, the Kythric Giant, has been uploaded to the Eberron Bestiary. The first creature of the giant type for the Bestiary, this ancestor of the Xen'drik empire has returned from its home on Kythri, the Churning Chaos, to find its old home still in ruins. With the aid of the other surviving giants, the Kythric giants hope to recover the glory that was once theirs. Perfect for a bit of culture in your Xen'drik encounters, these monsters still hold some of the ancient arcane secrets of the past. Comments or suggestions can be given at the thread on the official forums, here.

Here is a sneak preview:

This huge giant has tanned, weathered features contrasted by elaborate black and blue cloaks over fine leather armour. It carries itself with confidence and nobility, and holds a scythe in its hands.

The great cataclysm that ended the Age of Giants tore apart the nations of the giants and ended their rule over the continent of Xen’drik. Though the Quori claimed the lives of many of the giants, as did the dragons in the war that followed, some of the great giants survived the conflict. Some became the savage and misunderstood monsters that roam Xen’drik, while others managed to flee that forsaken land. The Kythric giants did just that. Making use of powerful planeshifting magic and a coterminous phase of the Churning Chaos, these giants escaped the wrath of the dragons and found a home on that plane.
