Giant Ant[edit]

"The Giant Ants got up on two legs and started to talk I was nearly scared out of my boots" -Leo's epic adventure

"The Giant Ants brought us food and water when we where near death they saved our lives" -Neo's Journal

Physical Description[edit]


Giant Ants look Identical to their unintelligent Ancestors execpt for the fact that they walk on four legs instead of the six their ancestors did.


Giant Ants were once monsters that terrorized people that came anywhere near their territory but, a crazed wizard and his party fought their way inside the Giant Ant's territory and stole several of their eggs. The wizard conducted several experiments on the eggs until the hatched and once they did he found they had gained intelligence of a humanoid at once the wizard locked them up in a large enclosure after a few generations of he started splitting groups off and putting them in different enclosures causing them to mutate which led to them mutating into new subspecies. With new subspecies and greater intelligence the Ants escaped the Wizards enclosures and spread across the land into environments that suited them best.


The Giant Ant society is matriarchal with one queen ruling them and all the other ants living to serve and protect the queen. Due to their greater intelligence their hill they live in is highly complex and is on the same level of security as a human town would have. Their society has poor views on wizards due to their past but, they do revere anyone who shows druidic talent. The Giant Ant society alters very little from region to region except for their hunting style. Giant Ant society is reserved but some have left in curiosity or in spite of their society to go and join adventuring parties.
