Superior Two-Weapon Fighting (Ex)

An ettin fights with a flail or javelin in each hand. Because each of its two heads controls an arm, the ettin does not take a penalty on attack or damage rolls for attacking with two weapons.

Knowledge (Nature)

DC Result

16 This two-headed giant is an ettin, a vicious and unpredictable nocturnal hunter. This result reveals all giant traits.

21 Though not particularly intelligent, ettins are skilled and cunning fighters. They are supremely strong and can fight very effectively with two weapons as each head controls one of its arms. Ettins speak a pidgin language of their own made up of a mix of Orc, Goblin and Giant.

26 Ettins have good senses and can see well in poor light conditions. They typically use ambushes to initiate combat, but then fight relentlessly until all enemies are dead. Ettins virtually never bathe and their stench is so strong that they almost always ambush from downwind to avoid being detected.
