Giants

I have a dumb question. It looks like we're missing a master Giant article (couldn't find it via search or in the Monster_index index). Should I just create one? EDIT: The srd classifies them as true giants. Nizos the giant lover

As far as I am aware, there is no precedent for identifying "true giants" within the campaign setting, and perhaps not even within Pathfinder. It seems to be something that falls in the realm of concepts people brought with them from 3.X, and even then I don't know if such identifications were ever officially made.
I believe in Pathfinder all giants are simply humanoids, and a troll or an ogre is as much a giant as a frost giant. In fact, this might be why we never created a master article for giants, as they are no longer a unique subtype. Even if they were still a unique subtype, however, such classifications are crunch content, and beyond the scope of this project.
In any case, identifying true giants definitely feels a bit too crunchy. If precedent can be found within the source material, by all means we should support this terminology. If not, then it should not be included within the project. -- Heaven's Agent 02:12, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
As this discussion pertains directly to a different (new) article, I've flagged True Giant as a candidate for deletion. This does not mean we won't keep the article, just that we are considering its validity within the project; we should continue this discussion on its talk page. -- Heaven's Agent 02:19, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
