Quote1. Where do all of these unaffiliated Half-Giants come from? Is there some sort of secret factory I don't know about?
Quote from: "HG Docs"...a half-giant is not like a child or a primitive humanoid, but rather, simply a very stupid person, although this is a much more subtle concept.
Quote2. What sort of childhood would your typical unaffiliated Half-Giant have (e.g. How would an unaffiliated Half-Giant be raised? They tend to eat a lot so would anyone outside of a House be able to afford it?)
Quote3. What are some good things for an unaffiliated Half-Giant to do upon the first few hours of entering the game? This is a problem all characters have but it's easier to solve with others, as they often have ambitions. Something (IMO) most Half-Giants would lack. Once a Half-Giant has been around for a bit longer it's easier to come up with things to do as they'll often have role models.
QuoteNot to derail the topic, but I would add in that I think a half-giant could very well raise a child just as a gorilla can do so.
Quote from: "Hoodwink"QuoteNot to derail the topic, but I would add in that I think a half-giant could very well raise a child just as a gorilla can do so.A gorrilla isn't mentally deficient. And raising a human child well enough to keep it alive involves a great deal more than tossing it some food now and again. Give it a try some time.
QuoteI think if half-giants were generally capable of raising children themselves then there would be half-giant communities, perhaps even with their own languages and such (like Dark Sun half-giants). In which case the help file on the race wouldn't say: Half-giants have no culture to speak of.
Quote from: "CRW"The instinctual bonds almost all mammalian parents share with their children coupled with a half-giant child's hardiness would, in my mind, make a half-giant parent more than able to supervise it to the extent it required.
Quote from: "CRW"So, to me the question isn't 'would a half-giant be able to care for a child' the question is would a half-giant male initiate sex with a half-giant female and would she receive that advance without human slavers or overseers encouraging it.
Quote from: "creeper386"I've never read that they can't have true kindness, that they are just copying others... But for the most part, isn't that how humans are? We learn how to react kindly to people from watching others, like-wise we learn how to be mad and such from watching others for the most part. Does that mean we are incapable of sharing kindness or love? No, that just means the way we SHOW that kindness and love was learned.
Quote from: "[url=http://www.armageddon.org/rp/racial/halfgiantsocial.htmlThe Half-Giant Social Plight[/url]"]Comparatively, kindness typically describes some kind of genuine concern for the well-being of others, and an understanding of a moral dimension to your actions. As you can imagine, these are not concepts which are at home in the thoughts of a half-giant. However, a half-giant is similarly incapable of harboring true malice.
