You are descended from the giants who ruled the mountain-spanning empire of Ostoria in ages past, and possess a truly impressive stature. Jotenbrud typically come from long lines of Damaran or Illuskan families once held in bondage by the Ostorian giants. Most members of these families are larger than the average human, but once or twice in a generation, a Jotunbrud is born.

To determine your height and weight, use the Random Height and Weight table in the Player’s Handbook, but your base height is 6’4’’ if male or 6’0’’ if female. Your base weight is 210 pounds if male and or 170 pounds if female. Your appearance is otherwise within the normal range for Damarans or Illusions.

Jotunbrud Traits
Jotunbrud share a number of traits in common with each other.

Ability Score Increase: Your Strength score increases by 2, and your Constitution score increases by 1.
Natural Athlete: You have proficiency in the Athletics skill.
Stone’s Endurance: You can focus yourself to occasionally shrug off injury. When you take damage, you can use your reaction to roll a d12. Add your Constitution modifier to the number rolled, and reduce the damage by that total. After you use this trait, you can’t use it again until you finish a short or long rest.
Powerful Build: You count as one size larger when determining your carrying capacity and the weight you can push, drag, or lift.
Mountain Born: You’re acclimated to high altitude, including elevations above 20,000 feet. You’re also naturally adapted to cold climates, as described in chapter 5 of the Dungeon Master’s Guide.
Languages: You can speak, read, and write Common and Giant.
