    Knowledge (Nature)

    DC Result

    14 Though uncertain of which type, the size of this creature before you marks it out as one of the giant-kin. This result reveals all giant traits.

    19 This creature is a frost giant, a member of the giant-kin usually found in snow-covered mountainous regions. As well as being dangerous melee combatants, these creatures, like most of their kind, are practiced rock-throwers, and can use these great chucks of stone as deadly and precise missiles. Frost giants usually speak both the giant and common languages. This result reveals all cold traits.

    24 Frost giants are brutal and destructive raiders, feared by most who live within or close to their territories, and ruled over by tribal leaders who call themselves "jarl". Though they usually live by hunting and raiding, they have been known to trade with other giant communities. They also like to take slaves when they raid communities.
