Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Stronger than any first party race and uses incomplete and incorrect wording throughout. The traits need to be mechanically worded correctly as they are often vague or written like casual conversation. Unconditional advantages, traits that bypass ability checks (see stonecunning), abilities should be linked to the standard rest cycle, not per initiative rolls, races should be able to speak common and if they don't the page needs a Design Disclaimer. Overall poorly executed and needs a rework both from a mechanic and lore perspective to better integrate with the first party content. Consult the 5e Race Design Guide for help and see the Featured Articles pages for some exemplary content.

Gigaemons (ɡī•ɡā•məns) are large, humanoid demons with placid, blue-gray skin and white scars on their chests that can be likened to trees. Their eyes are solid orbs that glow with a faint red luminescence. The hair and beard of a gigaemon normally comes in shades ranging from blood red to bright ginger orange, which are both kept in thick, ornamented braids. Heat radiates from their bodies and the air around a gigaemon is always warm.

History[edit]

Society[edit]

Gigaemon Names[edit]

Gigaemon names are very guttural and meant to induce a feeling of both dread and might. Older and more prominent gigaemons will often have additional names or titles, such as "Skull-Taker" or "Flame Heart", that convey power and display their skills.

Male: Urda, Dakra, Kifthail, Noroke, Nuruk

Female: Nithda, Hathar, Nimdraka, Urella, Urggasti

Age. Gigaemons mature at the same rate as humans. However, as they are demons, they do not die of old age and can potentially live forever if they are not slain by something else or succumb to disease or starvation.
Alignment. Despite being demons, gigaemons are only chaotic by nature and are are not inherently evil like other demons. The circumstances regarding their upbringing or the god they serve determines whether or not they are evil, neutral, or good.

Superior Darkvision. Gigaemons are adapted to live in the dark realms of the Netherworld. You can see in dim light within 120 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light.
Born of Giants. Being born of the blood giants, your creature type is considered to be both Giant and Humanoid. Additionally, you have advantage Strength ability checks.
Gigaemon Fiendskin. Unlike many of the demons of Urei, gigaemons' thick, muscly flesh does not provide the with natural armor. However, you do have advantage on Constitution saving throws to resist the effects of extreme heat from working the forges of the dark god of Urei.

Additionally, you can make makeshift weapons like stone axes and and bone daggers with little effort if you have the right materials and time.
Sunlight Sensitivity. Unlike other demons of Urei, gigaemons rarely leave their dark home and thus, their eyes have not adapted to handle light well.
