How do frost giants reproduce?


Gamer Talk

My players are currently assaulting a Hall of Frost Giants and came across this:

Giant, Frost

A frost giant's hair can be light blue or dirty yellow, and its eyes usually match its hair color. Frost giants dress in skins and pelts, along with any jewelry they own. Frost giant warriors also don chain shirts and metal helmets decorated with horns or feathers. An adult male stands about 15 feet tall and weighs approximately 2,800 pounds. Females are slightly shorter and lighter, but otherwise identical to males. Frost giants can live to be 250 years old.

Maybe some questions are better left unasked...

Suddenly I'm reminded of a certain Oglaf strip....

Since the bestiary is 85% mechanics and 14% flavor, I imagine "identical" refers to stats not genitalia, certain glands, and/or facial hair.

I think (hope) that they mean stat wise.

Sometimes, when a mommy frost giant and a daddy frost giant love each other very, very much, (after they're married, of course), they share a special kind of hug...

Very Carefully

...hampered of course by the fact that all frost giantesses are frigid...

Well, Frigid is a pretty giantess name. No wonder it's a popular one.

This is NOT information you should be getting off the internet. Don't you have parents?

The real question is why you need to know- planning on having your PCs find a pair of frost giants icing the cake, as it were? Perhaps you should refer to the BoEF. (which, in all seriousness, does describe such things)

Mythically.

The PCs enter the dungeon and the spawn point generates them.


They use spores! The females let loose a wet pool of spores and the males release a similar substance which fertilises them.

They call this mating ritual a Circle [REDACTED]

If you have to ask, you're not old enough for the answer.

Clicking on a thread titled "How do frost giants reproduce?" is a sure sign of procrastrination.

Iain Banks essay, why won't you just get finished?!

well, first the males have to wait until the females are in heat, and then - oh wait....

I removed some edition wars sniping.


Having missed it, I can't fathom how this fell into edition wars sniping - especially this early.

And they reproduce like Dwarves. But with ice.

Nazi!!!

Ha, Godwined the thread in 21.

I'm guessing by 'identical' they're talking about general physical attributes, like hair, eye, and skin color, clothing/armor worn, etc.

with ice cubes... like those in your cup of tea!!


then... whats icecream? @_@


I believe the preceding mention of "females are..." creates a strongly implied exception to the "otherwise identical" statement.

I've never written a paper about Banks, but I just read Inversions. It. Is. Amazing.

Carry on.

Oh, and some Barry White.

Possibly some Betty White, if the frost giants are pretty old.


The Player of Games, does not want to know.


I'm pretty sure OP is misreading the bolded part, at least in terms of context.

To be honest, I'd rather not imagine female frost giants as mini-me versions of the males.


Now necromancy is added to this thread. I don't think that is flavor text as intended.


They don't reproduce, they get resurrected. Like this thread.

Parthenogenesis...you break off a large enough piece of one and it starts growing into a new Frost Giant if it's cold enough.
