Ettin is a monster found in the Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) base game.

Description

One might think that a giant with two heads would be twice as smart as any other giant. Sadly, this is not true of most ettins, who find their two heads can seldom agree on anything. One thing all ettins do agree on, however, is that heroes taste delicious.

A named ettin, Mauler, appears in the quest First Blood. Another ettin, Zak'n'Jak, appears in The Twin Idols, Part I.
