Stone giant family bonds are less important than the bonds between a master and his pupil.[3] The ordering of stone giant society is based upon an individual's artistic ability.[5]

SubracesEdit

A subrace of stone giants known as Ash giants live in the Black Ash Plain in eastern Faerûn. They are approximately the same size as stone giants. They have hairless grey skin and deep set black eyes and often smear themselves with ash as camouflage. Some ash giants are shaman.[6]
