FROST GIANT OF JOTTENHEIM (Otherworldly Scale)
Hurt (sticky): [ 4 ]
Mark this condition to absorb four shifts of physical harm. Recovery requires at least one scene of downtime at full rest, obtaining medical attention, binding wounds, et cetera.
Much larger than the average human, Jotuns automatically gain scale (page 182) on actions in which his large size is advantageous. Opponents will, however, gain scale in situations in which they may use his size against him.
Once per scene, gain +2 to use Force to Attack or Overcome an obstacle that raw strength would effect. The GM may determine that your actions gain scale with or without invoking the bonus.
Once per session, you may treat a sticky condition reflecting physical injury as if it were fleeting.
The Jotun may cast evocations (page 140) that fit the nature of Aurgelmir, also called Ymir, in Norse mythology, the first being, a giant who was created from the drops of water that formed when the ice of Niflheim met the heat of Muspelheim: slumber, water and ice. All of the Jotun’s magic has a cold ambiance, even if its connection to Ymir is metaphorical. This magic is ultimately sponsored by Ymir, and using it in a manner counter to the well being of his children may mark you as an enemy to the Jotuns. You use these as actions with your normal approaches, in any combination. The GM may assign scale (page 182) to your action.
In Peril (sticky): [ 4 ]
You may mark the In Peril condition whenever you are hit by an attack. Negate up to four shifts of damage from the attack and then create an aspect that describes how the attack causes damage not easily shaken off (such as a Broken Leg or Shattered Reputation). Whoever inflicted the condition is awarded a free invoke on that aspect. Recover from In Peril when you act deliberately to resolve the peril: medical attention for an injury, a bribe to erase the slight on your reputation. This typically entails overcoming an obstacle against an opposition of Great (+4) or higher.
Doomed (lasting): [ 6 ]
You may mark the Doomed condition whenever you are hit by an attack. Negate up to six shifts of damage from the attack and then create an aspect that describes how the attack has rendered you almost helpless, such as Bleeding Out or Ready to Embrace the Dark Side. Whoever inflicted the condition is awarded a free invoke on that aspect. Recover from Doomed when you act deliberately to resolve the doom: emergency medical attention, the intervention of a White Council healer skilled in mental magic, or something similar. This typically entails overcoming an obstacle against an opposition of Great (+4) or higher. Clear out Doomed at the end of the next session after you’ve started recovery. If Doomed is checked and you are taken out (page 189), death is one of the possible outcomes.
STRESS: [ 1 ] [ 1 ] [ 1 ] [ 1 ] [ 1 ] [ 1 ]
CURRENT REFRESH: 0
Spent Refresh: 0
The frost giants are highly variable in form and power. Some with greater magics might wield Rune Magic (pg 152), Glamours or Full Evocation, Thaumaturgy, and perhaps some other Evocation Stunts. Jotuns (eldest and strongest of the kind) approach plot-device level at Legendary or even Godlike Scale (pg. 182); Utgard-Loki, were he to reappear, might well be a match for Uriel or a Faerie Queen.
