Several issues here. Firstly, why do you start with a magic item (and please link with square brackets)? Secondly, most of the traits are overpowered and/or poorly worded. Also, could you include a source for the image? SirSprinkles (talk) 16:59, 19 November 2016 (MST)

Musicus Rating[edit]

Musicus' Meter
Score: 6.5
This race scored 6.5 with the Musicus Meter race guidelines (score between 4 and 6 to an absolute maximum of 8). This metric may represent this page, or not. This is a meter, and it's important to use your own judgment alongside this scoring.
This scoring may be the groundwork for a focused {{needsbalance}} usage. A contributor to this page may request a detailed breakdown of this page's balance. Without this information, {{needsbalance}} may then be removed.
This template should only be placed on a race's talk page. If this template is not placed on the talk page, please move it.


It is assumed that Large sized creatures are worth 1.5 on the meter. ConcealedLight (talk) 19:40, 21 December 2017 (MST)

On another note, here is a better image for the class {{5e Image|float:right|http://www.animepro.com.br/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/diane-nanatsu.jpg|Earth Gaint <br/> Image is from the Seven Deadly Sins}}. Also, use this image http://pm1.narvii.com/6524/a7783f8cee2c40d365fcb3ecd07d6c156f6bceea_00.jpg instead if you still think the image is too big. --Blobby383b (talk) 13:36, 16 January 2018 (MST)

Featured Article Nomination[edit]

This race has the potential to be a featured article. I am nominating this page as a featured article, with the reservation that it may need a little polishing work before it gets approved. This page needs to be supported, commented, or opposed from within our community, and double checked for confirmation to featured article formatting and content standards by someone who will then let us know how well it meets these criteria.

Oppose Right now, I feel they are too powerful, between their Large size, and the fact that they can carry and lift things as if they were a Huge creature, and their skill proficiency, all paired up with an ordinary ASI. I don't feel the article's picture is very indicative of the race, either, simply being a very large human (much larger than the 9-14 feet described). The History and Society section needs to be combed through with a fine brush to look for spelling and grammatical, errors, as well as general readability. Ultimately, the society section doesn't actually describe much of their society. Their history doesn't explain why the Earth Giants decreased in number as the Dragons did. Make these changes and I'll consider changing my vote. (Varkarrus (talk) 16:14, 15 February 2018 (MST))
Support - I've worked on this race with the user Geodude quite a bit and it even featured in his RfA. Besides this, I believe this race is both an interesting addition compared to the first party races and a compatible addition to the first party material clearly outlining where this race fits in within the giant's cast system detailed in the Monster Manual and then expanded upon in Volo's Guide to Monsters. --ConcealedLight (talk) 11:05, 18 February 2018 (MST)
