Stone Giants are huge humanoids which appear to be flesh and blood, but their outer skin is a dense protective crust similar to rock or dried mud. The humanoids are carnivores and eat raw meat, but are not cannibalistic, and prefer to hunt in thick, low-mountain wooded forests which border grasslands. Their preferred prey are buffalo, dinosaurs, and other grazing animals, as well as the humans and D-bees which hunt the same.
They are typically encountered in pairs (mates or hunting partners) and tribes range from as few as six to as many as thirty individuals.

- Wisps of Sickness: With a successful Touch Attack, a Stone Giant can infect foes with a magical sickness which takes the form of green wisps emanating from the creatures face. If successful, the target must make a Vigor roll. On a failed Vigor roll, the target suffers a level of Fatigue. On the target’s next action, the target makes a second Vigor roll. With a raise, there is no further effect and the target is immune to Wisps of Sickness from the attacker for the rest of the encounter (other Stone Giants may still use Wisps of Sickness on the character). On a success, further effects are delayed for another round, but the victim must roll again on his next action. Failure incurs another level of Fatigue.
Fatigue can lead to death. One Fatigue level is recovered every day (halved with medical attention).
