The Big Friendly Giant[edit]

Design Note: I'm sure everyone has read the Roald Dahl book "The BFG", or maybe even seen the movie. This race seeks to emulate the movie character, with a focus on his intelligence and dexterity. This is just the BFG and not the other giants in the book an movie. What is the BFG? (Wikipedia link) [1]

Other Giants[edit]

The giants lived in a faraway land that normal folk could not reach without a guide. They stayed there, waiting for a chance to unleash their forces upon the world, but not all of them believed in this purpose. The BFG, along with others, opted for a more peaceful life and only engaged in violence if absolutely necessary. The focused their time on the pursuit of knowledge, avoiding fights with their speed, stealth and dexterity. They often visited the realms of other races, however took great care to never be seen.
