Goliaths are exemplary fighters in close quarters combat they make great fighters, and barbarians.

Physical Description[edit]

Goliaths are normally between 7.5 and 9 feet tall. Regularly bald or with long ponytails according to tradition. Eye color can be brown, grey, or green. Tradition dictates most goliaths have tattoos, common places are chest, shoulder, face, scalp, and calves. Goliaths reach full maturity at 40 years old, and can live to be 200.


Goliaths are traditionally tribe based with a single chieftain. Upon on the death of a chieftain all the male goliaths fight, last one standing is the new chieftain. Goliaths are nomadic, following herds of animals, but some tribes have been known to settle in plains fortifying their camps.


Goliaths do not like Orcs. They make very good friends with Dwarfs due to their strength and love of alcohol.
