Pushing themselves as hard as possible in the largest of deserts, magnesium giants are burly, temperamental brawlers that are only rivaled in muscle mass by the frost giants. Like the frost giants their most respected skill is brute strength, bring about grizzly scars and an attitude that often turns the desert into a giant brawl.

Sandstone Skin. Magnesium giants have adapted quite well to the desert. While their hair is a green-brown, their other physical features are perfect for the desert. Their flesh is orange, like desert sand. Curiously magnesium giants are usually clean-shaven, as they don't grow facial hair as easily as other giants.
Magnesium giants make their domains neath the large rocky crags that rise from the desert. They find the desert to be a perfect test of their endurance, with nowhere to grow crops or raise animals. As such they have to hunt the wild game, but rarely cook their meat since they prefer their meat gamey. Being in a desert they wear little clothing, although their choice of such clothing is quite creative. They've been known to fashion loincloths and shirts, even bras, out of torn off dragon wings and animal hides and carapaces.

Dust Devils. Magnesium giants don't normally get the chance to benefit from raiding, living in place usually inhabited by only a few nomadic peoples. When they do raid, they usually do it under the cover of a sandstorm to make it seem like it is to blame and not leave a trail. As such, they're a little carefree when they go raiding, apart from trying to be quiet and take just about everything, including villagers depending on the alignment of the raiding tribe. The most desired treasures are usually gems and alcohol.

Warrior Rulers. One's brute strength is the most important trait of magnesium giants and members of both sexes are always flaunting evidence of their physical power; superior musculature, gruesome scars, trophies of battle, and the like. Tasks such as hunting and childbearing are not limited to any one giant, however, the hardiest and most physically powerful get to do so more often. The head of the tribe has to always be on their guard, lest they encounter a rival unprepared. Any adult in the tribe can challenge the leader for direct control, sometimes many all at once. These are almost always resolved in a full-scale melee. Many often receive brutal, maybe even crippling, injuries, but their stubborn nature usually makes them act only a little hurt.

Desert Fisticuffs. Such mass brawls are hardly limited to power struggles. These giants' tempers are legendary, often exploding out of nowhere with even slight provocation hence the name "magnesium." As of such, they're often brawling among themselves whether it be over an issue, an unintended argument, or just because they need to blow off steam. This behavior is adopted early in life, though in their infantile years it's for usually fun. After the age of three, magnesium giants tend to start to display more of their anger through physical fights rather than childish screams.
Among magnesium giants there is a saying: Hagrus alcom dain schlenar; "I prefer a weapon I can truly control, and I can only control my fist." To them, the most respected form of combat is hand to hand. Weapons exist, but they are usually last reserved for when they're needed. Such occasions are rare, as magnesium giants are uncannily skilled with their fist and their fists are powerful, even for their size. To them (with exceptions), any giant who regularly uses a weapon is most likely compensating for something.
