No creatures demonstrate smaller races’ relative insignificance better than the eerie and awe-inspiring giants, whose humanoid visages and cyclopean strengths exude an aura of both familiarity and terror. Standing in the long shadows of these colossi, smaller races can witness a form of primordial power that shakes the earth, churns the skies, and roils the waves.

Giants Revisited explores the traits and habitats of the biggest and meanest humanoids ever to tread the earth, towering beings whose motives and behaviors are as varied as their origins and amazing abilities. Each giant race’s entry examines the creature’s ecology and habitat, its interactions with other giants and races, advice on how to implement the behemoth in your game, unique stat blocks, and more.

    Inside this 64-page book, you’ll find goliaths such as:
  • Hill giants, the primitive, blundering brutes who plague valley communities and roving caravans in their endless search for food and destruction.
  • Cyclopes, the one-eyed behemoths whose ancient empire’s ruins still dot tropical coasts.
  • Taiga giants, nomads who commune with ancestral spirits to guide them.
  • Rune giants, who were created long ago to enslave all of giantkind.
  • Marsh giants, froglike beings who conspire with otherworldly sea-spawn sent from their foul demon lord.
  • Cloud giants, whose mythical cloud cities are as much a thing of legend as their own lofty race.
  • Other herculean heavyweights such as the industrious fire giants, barbaric frost giants, capricious storm giants, and stoic stone giants.

Giants Revisited is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be used in any fantasy game setting.

Nice some much needed giant love.

It's certainly pure coincidence that this guide features monsters which are a crucial part of a certain AP's plot...


Yes, please.

They would need to have seriously covered some others,

Spoiler:
Goblins, Ghouls, Ogres ...

Hummm, Wait a minute maybe you have something there! ;)

Silver Crusade

Goblins and Ogres are covered in Classic Monsters Revisited, Ghouls are done in Classic Horrors Revisited.


Cyclopes! Wo-hoo!


Great, a few days ago I wanted this book and Paizo delivers

Going to be very interested in how Paizo tackles this one.

Your spoiling the plot-line for some! ;) (this is a joke!)

But basicaly I was trying to say that the others had been covered.

I'll have to work on my funny-guy tone of writing.

No Wood Giants? Cyclopes are a better tie-in to Skulls and Shackles I guess.

Sure, there are two out of ten interesting for RotRL, but what else would you have put in? The giant races/societies are more or less set (in stone - hehe) for a pretty long time and all mentioned are iconic.

It's going to be interesting to learn more about the cyclops' society for using this information in my KM campaign to fill all the treasure of V with fluff.

Ruyan.


I have been waiting for this one. Now I need Fey Revisited


2 people marked this as a favorite.

I've been waiting for this book for 3 years.

YAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!!!!!


Very interested! I like using good giants as NPCs. One idea I had as a test-drive for Ultimate Combat involved the PCs being hired by a storm giantess to help clear out a creature infestation on her private plot that goes too deep for her esteemed self to reach personally.

Shadow Lodge

Yet again a book I have been wanting. Fe Fi Fo Fum I smell some giant based PCs.


very nice

There is likely to be something about cyclopes in Lost Kingdoms as well, since it is apparently going to cover Ghol-Gan. Of course, that's a heck of a long way from the River Kingdoms.

I'm sure this book will be as well done as the others in the series, but at the moment I'm not very excited about a book on giants.

Turns out I think cyclopes are cooler than wood giants, and thus wood giants got left behind. Sorry!

Well, there can always be a 'Not so cool Giants Revisited', with Wood Giants, Ettins and Athachs ...

The only thing that annoys me about the cyclopes that even at my groups current pace, they'll have finished Kingmaker 3 by the time the book comes out.

Osirion

I am really excited about this book! I always wanted to see a giant and a fey handbook come out for 3.5, and instead now we get it with Pathfinder, which is even better!

I am voting to see a couple random tables in the back, like "contents of a giant's bag" and "content of a giant's cave". Any chance we might get these thrown in as well? :)


Yes! It will be great to see an entire book covering the giants of Golarion. Hopefully we'll get everything from the classic big dumb bully to the deformed murderous cannibals to the dreaded sorcerers of Norse myth.


I have been SO looking forward to something like this! :)

A visit to a certain hill steading, glacier, and hall lies in the future of a particular group of PCs, and those giants really need some help (particularly after they were folded into the Humanoid type). Otherwise they simply become oversized bags of hit points with an astoundingly low touch AC.

Trolls were already covered in Classic Monsters Revisited and I have to agree with James on cyclopses versus wood giants.

R...Ra...Ray Vallese?

Any chances for a Planescape reunion product, now that all major PS writers are either employees or freelancers for Paizo?


Yay, Ryan!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Do we know who is writing about wich type(s) of Giants?


BRING ON THE BIG GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can see right now that I'm going to be a very broke and happy GM for the next several months, you guys keep steamrolling with excellent releases. Am loving the treatment of the classics in the Revisited series so far, can't wait to get my hands on this one as well.

Ahhh to bad its for April, I will start book 4 of RotRL in probably 3 weeks 8(


So we're getting a write-up for Marsh giants? Huh, I didn't think they were that popular.

I do hope they settle on just what illustration to use; I vastly prefer the slimy gray-skinned savage from RotRL #5 to the potbellied Deep One from Bestiary 2. Though I suppose the latter is one of the brineborn.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Well I am sure that there will be something interesting written for Marsh Giants besides they can't all be "winners".

I don't know, I'm more keen on the illustration in Bestiary 2 myself. The illustration in RotRL #5 wasn't very memorable. The look in Bestiary 2 is distinctive.

I like the picture in the Beastairy 2 better myself as well.

Cyclops! Finally the rulers of an ancient empire are getting the limelight. Will there be hints as to their long gone empire?

yea that is a fascinating topic and one I hope gets some fluff


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I am most interested in the Cyclopes, Cloud Giants, and Storm Giants myself.


I doubt that there is going to be any specific info on the cyclops' empire, Thomas - since that is Golarion-specific and these products aim for a more generic use.

Ruyan.

Ruyan.

The revisited line is actually where they put the Golarion specific stuff. The Bestiaries are where they stay away from setting fluff.


You're of course right, Jam. Can't imagine where I got that notion from.

Ruyan.


This sounds like it is going to be a great product! I have enjoyed the other Revisited products that Paizo has put out. I wonder if they might do fey folk next?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I like all of there revisited books as well.

Would love a revisited book for Fey(and a Gazetteer for the first world)

I wish for a another misfit monsters and classic treasure type books as well.


Giant slayer fighter archetype with attack bonus = size difference....I want an effective Halfling fighter!

Excellent cover art! Hey, is there any chance you guys would consider listing the cover artist for a product in the product description? Possibly just below the list of author(s)?

Contributor, RPG Superstar 2010 Top 4

Nice cover!

I'm looking forward to marsh giants and cyclopes.

I know I freelance, but deep down.. being sincere as a customer.. this book is one that I'm pretty excited about. Content sounds awesome.

Is this Ryan's first work for Paizo? If so, congrats!

That might be the best looking cover of any Paizo book I have seen yet.

It's in the top three for sure.

They need to keep that artist in the stable.
