Huge, lumbering, and particularly dull, this rusting monolith packs quite the punch. It is quite possibly the largest giant you have ever seen.

Useful Info

Iron giants are strong, durable humanoids that appear mostly in Tartarus, but can also be occasionally found in Depths. Their normal attack, iron shot, and throw all deal tremendous damage, especially to characters with low AC. (Throw deals 1d88.) Being tossed around can further make a bad situation worse.

Fortunately, iron giants move slowly so you usually have ample opportunity to run. They're best taken on solo, if at all.
