#PactDays : Giantes #ValespianPact

Welcome to Thursday's Pact Days! Today, we have the Giantes.

The info on the Giante is restricted because they pay a part in the next several Valespian Pact books.

A couple of side notes: For a list of species that have been posted so far, see the The People of Valespia page. I'm placing these in alphabetical order so I won't unintentionally place importance on any specie. I will leave off information on the species that will spoil future books. My standard sheet has the same categories for all species. So there will be blank categories just because that species didn't need them.

Species: Giante
Planet: Anatolia
Other races on the planet:
Planetary Terrain:
Capitol: Lycia
Country: Mycenea (Mycenaean people)
Patron Ryo Pardeep
Description: the minimum adult height is three meters. Most Giantes are around four meter tall. Dark brown skin. Single eye that sees not only substance but the energies of the aether.

Strong, quicker than they appear, stubborn, brute strength, and powerful. Formidable foes.

Master craftsmen of unusual weapons. If someone attempts to reverse engineer the devices without the master key, the device will self-destruct.

The fabled lion's gate are massive carved lions three time taller than the Giantes and so intricately carved the statues seem lifelike.

Giantes do not tolerate those who brought shame upon their families and people. They are disowned by the family and stripped of land and titles. If Giantes came upon such a person in space, they would abuse the individual.

Valuable items forged: Classically...
Silver Siege Rhyton – used for transportation of libation for sacred rites and rituals. Conical shaped and formed in the shape of an animal's head with an opening at the bottom.
