Frost giant is a type of monster in ADOM. They are strong monsters that can attack from afar with rocks, and can smash doors. They often drop the slings they use when killed. Like most creatures of ice they are immune to cold attacks, but highly vulnerable to fire — something certainly worth bearing in mind for physically weak spellcasters trying to survive against them.

Frost giants regularly appear in the Frost Giant Jarl Caves, with a quite large group of them guaranteed to appear in the lesser vault on the last level of the cave.

Monster memory[]

These large humanoids generally inhabit high mountainous regions, well above the snowline. The occasional adventurous giant can be found wandering the world looking for challenges of strength to build their prestige and raise their status within the tribe.
