A-to-Z Challenge, G: Giant Generator (New Monster? and d30 Feature of the Week)

Yes, I was a little conflicted about this one. Normally, Friday is d30 Feature of the Week day 'round these parts. But since I'm also doing the A-to-Z challenge featuring a new monster from A-to-Z, I deferred yesterday's d30 item to the letter "F". I did, however, find a way to combine this week's d30 feature with my A-to-Z posts... hopefully... even if it's not Friday anymore. It's a d30-based generator for creating a random giant, similar to my d30-based Sea Creature Generator and, since it combines different hit dice with random special attacks/defenses to create a moderately unique giant, that's kind of like creating a new monster... right?

  1. Nice design... the list of special attacks and varied breath damage is cool. It's great to see more for the old d30 to do, too! :-)

    See also another stab at a random giant generator from last September's blog challenge. (I hate to be the bearer of "Nothing New Under the Sun" news, though...)

  2. Thanks! I've used a similar mechanic to the breath damage table for poisons in the d30 DM Companion I've been working on.

    Also, thanks for the link to your giant generator. There's some really great stuff on it that I should have though to include.
