Giants' Allies

Giants are iconic monsters of D&D and they make no exception in D&D 5e.

Storm King's Thunder and Volo's Guide to Monsters have already provided new options for your giants but if to spice up the encounter I suggest to introduce some allies.

Choose one or more allies from the list below; while originally devised for a STK campaign, you can virtually use it in any world, homebrew included.
