Half-giants are friendly and eager to please those they meet. Others who accept them find that half-giants quickly adopt their lifestyles and skills, even their values. A half-giant character who is presented with a new situation should examine the roles of the people there, determine where he might best fit in, and then start performing the tasks necessary.
 
 
For example, a half-giant character who happens upon a [[Dwarf|dwarven]] stone quarry may watch the dwarves, then start quarrying stone himself. He won't work with the dwarves, necessarily but, if he can make a living at it, he will continue to quarry stone just like his neighbor dwarves do.
 
 
This is not to say, however, that half-giants are strictly bound to perform as those they see around them, nor are they restricted from moving on.  On the contrary, if the situation is not beneficial or if the half-giant would not perform well (living in the trees like the [[Halfling|halflings]], for instance), he won't imitate it. Also, half-giants are not bound to a piece of work or a lifestyle the way other races are —they seldom have regrets or reminiscences about what has gone before. They simply aren't as emotionally attached to their lives or works.
 
 
Persons playing a half-giant character should be prepared to switch goals and lifestyles easily, usually based on the charismatic individuals their character meets. Remember, though, that due to size alone, half-giants make excellent [[fighter|fighters]]. Always remember their great size and roleplay accordingly. Dungeon Masters should not mindlessly allow the character to fit easily through human-sized doorways or ride in a tiny wagon. Similarly, they must not forget that he can see in many second story windows, reach things humans cannot, and lift things humans would never consider lifting.
