Version 0.31: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.

Giants are enormous humanoids who rely primarily on brute force, but often have powerful ranged attacks as well. Although their immense size allows them to endure heavy abuse before falling, they have terrible evasion and are generally easy to hit. Several subspecies of giant inhabit the lower portions of the Dungeon, growing more common in the Vaults and the Depths.
