Monster memory[]

A giant-like creature with two heads, the ettin is difficult to surprise as one of the huge orc-like heads is usually alert. They are not very intelligent, in spite of the two heads, and have occasionally been known to fight with themselves, although the presence of an opponent always brings both heads to focus on the intruding being as the preferred target. They are not very tidy about their appearance, being more concerned with causing damage to some other creature.
