Munguk the Hill Giant (Dead)



Mugluk wears a poorly made pair of overalls, His neck bedecked with human and animal skulls. A small bundle of sapplings are held together with a blanket, forming a sound club. In addition to his hide armor and greatclub, Munguk carries a crude hide sack containing his worldly possessions.

Hill giants normally exude power and a crude, stupid anger, their filthy fur clothing bespeaking a brutish and backwoods lifestyle. Skin color among hill giants ranges from light tan to deep, ruddy brown. Their hair is brown or black, with eyes the same color. Hill giants wear layers of crudely prepared hides with the fur left on. They seldom wash or repair their garments, preferring simply to add more hides as their old ones wear out. Adults are around 10 feet tall and weigh about 1,100 pounds. Hill giants can live to be 200 years old, but almost never do.

Solitary, non-evil hill giants (like Mugluk) are very rare but can sometimes be found in other humanoid societies, though they are almost never accepted in central cities or population centers. They do best as laborers and soldiers in outlying frontier towns, and often serve as rudimentary diplomats to negotiate with marauding hill giant bands. Unfortunately, hill giants who shed their racial lifestyle for civilization are mocked and often killed on sight by their nomadic brethren. Still, these “civilized” hill giants can find their place within society and many have managed to live peaceful, uneventful lives.

Mugluk was recently killed by the rampaging owlbear.


Depressed after being rebuffed by trolls when he tried to join their gang, Munguk tried to forget his troubles by looking for blue wolf berries to make moonshine from, hunting for game, and seeking a mate, in that order. Unfortunately for Munguk, however, blue wolf berries were not in season, his loud singing had scared away the larger game in the area, and there are no female hill giants within miles. You him noticed him squatting on a rock trying to lick the last drops of moonshine out of a broken jug.
