Stone giants are monsters in ADOM. They are quite strong monsters that are capable of firing rocks. They often drop the slings they use to fire rocks when they killed.

Stone giants tend to appear towards the mid-game, or a bit earlier than that. However, digging through rock with a pick axe at any stage in the game has a chance of generating a hostile stone giant, which might be quite a problem for very low leveled PCs. They also appear in the High Mountain Village sometimes.

Collective description

This solemn, massive figure seems as eternal and unchanging as the granite beneath your feet. Its great size conveys a sense of quiet strength. Slow to anger, but slow to forgive, the stone giant seeks peace but finds only strife. Its tranquility has been disturbed; its home has been invaded. Now it seeks to restore its habitat only way it can: by destroying the ones who have trespassed into its domain.

Females only

This huge humanoid has stone gray skin, and she really is made from stone. Before any other living being was created, the elder gods shaped this race from the rock of the ancient mountains. Since all stone and rock is made of their substance, these giants feel all the pain that is caused to the earth, and share its suffering. When the gods descended to the world and erected stone temples, the giants of stone arose and so great was their wrath that the gods had to strike an alliance with the demons to protect their abodes. Since those days, the giants have grown weary of the world, and most sleep deep within the mountains and only a few wake and try to effect vengeance on those torturing the earth, their mother.
