Two Brains (Ex)

Anytime a mythic ettin attempts a Will saving throw, it rolls twice and uses the better result.


Environment cold hills
Organization solitary, pair, gang (3–6), troupe (1–2 plus 1–2 brown bears), band (3–6 plus 1–2 brown bears), or colony (3–6 plus 1–2 brown bears and 7–12 orcs or 9–16 goblins)
Treasure standard (studded leather, 2 flails, 4 javelins, other treasure)

A mythic ettin is descended from a sordid lineage of mythic hill giants, mythic stone giants, and at least one mythic orc. Angrier, filthier, and stronger than other ettins, it is a leader of its kind, and is better at keeping a band or colony together for months or years.

Variant Mythic Ettins

Some mythic ettins are strongly related to one of their ancestral races, and have different mythic abilities.

Hillblood Ettin (CR 8/MR 3)

A hill-giant-dominant mythic ettin loses its powerful charge and stench abilities but gains a mythic hill giant’s earth bond and ground pound abilities.

Orcblood Ettin (CR 8/MR 3)

An orc-dominant mythic ettin loses its stench and two brains abilities, but gains blood rage and feral savagery.

Stoneblood Ettin (CR 8/MR 3)

A stone giant-dominant mythic ettin loses its powerful charge and stench abilities, but gains a stone giant’s improved rock catching and rock throwing.
