Desert Giants come from the Al-Qadim sub-setting. They are tribal nomadic herders, following the seasonal rains of Zakhara. Their skin is tan and very wrinkly, even at a young age. They have dark hair and, in what has to be an homage to Dune, piercing blue eyes. Their race is under a divine curse that slowly turns them into stone throughout their life. They are 17 feet tall and weigh 7,000 pounds, but get much heavier as their petrification progresses. The live up to 400 years. The women wear hijabs or burqas.
Unlike most giants, they do not hurl stones in combat, preferring instead to throw wooden spears.
