Fire giants are militaristic giants that live deep within volcanic mountains, forging weapons and equipment of molten metal, and then burning all that surrounds their lairs with a cruel delight.
Some fire giants have bright orange hair. An adult male is 12 feet tall, has a chest that measures 9 feet around, and weighs about 7,000 pounds. Females are slightly shorter and lighter. Fire giants can live to be 350 years old.
Fire giants wear sturdy cloth or leather garments colored red, orange, yellow, or black. Warriors wear helmets and half-plate armor of blackened steel..
Fire giants first appeared as the penultimate type of giant in the White Box set for OD&D.
