[3.0/3.5] Looking for non-psionic half-giant
« on: May 04, 2017, 06:07:44 PM »
Don't want a goliath, but the half-giant. I'm not sure if I'm just remembering wrong, but I could have sworn there was a non-psionic half-giant that had no power points and had a swap out SLA for the stomp PLA. Does anyone know where I can find such a thing?

Look in the Sarlona book. Its a half-giant with SLA not PLA.

There is a half-ogre in DLCS page 41, that is kind of a giant.

I seem to recall there being a standard half-giant template in a Dragon Mag, or maybe that was a half-ogre.

*hunts around a bit*

hmmm, I found half minotaur and half ogre, along with a bunch of other halves, but no half-giant. (Dragon 313, if anyone is interested.)

Secrets of Sarlona just references the EPH psionic half-giant, so that doesn't really help.

Any problem with just dropping the psionics and the editing the other abilities a bit, and maybe lose the LA? Could use the half minotaur and half ogre from the Dragon mag I mentioned as guidelines (maybe not as official as one could hope for, but still, at least it's something.)

There is one way... if you don't mind losing powerful build, you could take only the first level of the half-giant racial class listed in the complete psionic. Which incidentally also states that racial classes can be intermixed with standard classes (ie: you don't have to finish a racial class before taking other class levels). So, maybe a plus for those fond of applying the savage progressions concepts globally.

'Nother half-giant in Savage Species (iirc).
** edit = nope , idk where then.

?!
I had noticed the intermixing ecl ~build tables for those various races in CPsi.
What page is that rules text?
you can excuse me for reading CPsi much closer than most, but I totally missed that one.

The old way was something like "Flesh Golem" 9 , PAO'd into a "Flesh Golem 9".
With a good luck finding a spare PAO-er hanging around Sigil or anywhere else.

p144 is the start of the "Psionic Racial Classes" section: the rules quote is second column, second paragraph, end of the paragraph.
