The Goliaths’ massive bodies look as if they are carved from a mountain stone and give them great physical power. Gray, or brown, stone-line skin covers their bodies and they have blue or green eyes. Males are bald, while females have dark hair. Often goliaths have dark vertically symmetrical patches and markings of cultural significance. They are typically fearless, competitive, and prideful, without being arrogant or cocky. Trust, honor, and tradition are common traits.

Racial Traits: Natural Athlete, Stone’s Endurance, Powerful Build, Cold Resistance.

Natural Athlete: You gain proficiency with the Athletics skill.
Stone’s Endurance: You can focus yourself to shrug off injury. When you take damage, you can use your Reaction to roll a d12. Add your Constitution modifier to the number rolled, and reduce the damage by that total. Once you use this trait, you can't use it again until you finish a short or long rest.

Powerful Build: You have advantage on lifting objects with Athletics checks, and on the Grapple action.

(Damage) Resistance: If a creature or an object has resistance to a damage type, damage of that type is halved against it. (Example: you are hit by fire damage while you have Fire Resistance: that damage would be halved.)
