Astral Giants are giants who span out across the planes, often found traversing the astral to get almost anywhere in the multiverse. They are by most standard, just very big Githyanki, but normally not as evil. They tend to have slightly hunched backs though, long arms and bow-legs. Despite their somewhat savage appearance they are very intelligent creatures, making them stand out among giant-kind. They speak Giant and Common, also a few learn to speak planar languages such as infernal, celestial, etc.
 
COMBAT
Astral Giants dislike combat, they would rather deal with outsiders or traverse the astral plane rather than kill. If forced to fight though they usually try to distract opponents and wait for a opportunity to flee.
Planeshift (Sp): 3/day an Astral Giant can use planeshift as the spell cast by a 10th level Wizard.
 
ASTRAL GIANT SOCIETY
Astral Giants often travel from plane to plane searching for outsiders to sell their wares to. This often puts them into small scuffles between Genies and Mercanes who are also merchants on a extraplanar scale.
 
ASTRAL GIANT CHARACTERS
Most Astral Giants favor the Wizard class. However a few are often born Sorcerors or even Psychi Warriors, a memory of their possible Gith ancestry.
