Crown of Destiny



Giant is a monster found in the second Hero and Monster Collection set, Crown of Destiny. It was originally found in the Second Edition Conversion Kit.

Description

Similar to ogres, only larger and more powerful, giants are devastating opponents that few heroes have ever faced. The greatest of the giants can wipe out an entire band of heroes with a single swipe of their great clubs.

As old and unyielding as the mountains themselves, giants are unthinkably strong, possessing enough strength to easily cast several opponents aside with a single strike. These ancient folk are intolerant of outsiders and prone to solve problems by resorting to violence rather than reason. One old giant, known as Mughin, may hold the key to finding the magical Crown of Destiny.
