By character class
cyclops is a single-eyed giant, standing around 20 feet tall and weighing
over 5,000 pounds. Females are slightly shorter and weigh slightly less.
A single red eye dominates the center of their forehead. Their hair
is either deep blue or black and is always matted and unkempt. A cyclops
has a dark, ruddy skin tone, and a deep, bellowing voice.
A cyclops can live to be 500 years old.
cyclops will fight using its greatsword and boulders. It prefers throwing
rocks at an opponent first, and should any foe survive the hail of
boulders, the cyclops will move to attack with its sword. A cyclops’
thrown rocks have a range increment of 150 feet.
For rock throwing and rock catching, see the Giant entry in the Monster
Manual, page 100.
Cyclops can survive on
almost any animal or plant diet. They enjoy meat of all sorts and prize it
above vegetable foods. While they live off the land, they do not live with
it. They have absolutely no sanitary practices, and rarely even cook their
meals. They take no care to preserve their environment while hunting.
groups of cyclopes are fighters or warriors, though an occasional cleric
will be encountered. Cyclopes clerics have access to any two of the
following domains: Evil, Chaos, Destruction, and War (most choose
Destruction or War).
Cyclops first appeared in Deities and Demigods (Gary Gygax, 1980).
