Giantism and Martial Arts Training Talents Combined
« on: April 23, 2017, 08:13:54 AM »
I have a player in my game who took the Giantism and Martial Arts Training Talents. His final height is 2.9 meters, and he brought up the idea that perhaps being so tall should have result in a Large Martial Arts attack rather than a Medium. Thanks for advice in advance.

Never mind, I find the conditional OB modifiers where you take the best one.

Missed this one. No, it should still be a Medium attack size.  The character may be taller but the fists and feet are not that substantially different in size. For a creature to have Large natural attacks, it really needs to be Huge in size or for the attacks to have been "talented" to be much more vicious than mere size would grant.

Best wishes,
Nicholas

Yes, quite aware that "across the pond" commas are used where we use periods (full stops if you prefer) numerically and vice versa. That can sometimes get confusing.
