Sand giants are disciplined, honorable desert dwellers who live in stable communities which are often isolated. Although their villages tend to be remote they do trade with other races and are not isolationists. Sand giant society is highly structured with each clan ruled by a hereditary monarch. Sand giants formerly lived in most deserts in Southern Faerûn but are now most commonly found in Raurin.
Adult Sand giants stand ten feet tall and weigh 2,000 lbs. Their skin ranges from dark brown to beige in color and their hair ranges from black to blond. Their eyes are usually the same color as their hair.
Sand giants prefer to dig into the sand and ambush opponents. They will often attack with a weapon known as a sand blaster which shoots sand at opponents, partially disabling them. In melee combat they often use a scimitar.
