Special Abilities

Ground Breaker (Ex) As a standard action, a mythic frost giant can expend one use of mythic power and attack the ground around him. Choose one intersection within reach; creatures touching the ground within a 20-foot burst centered on that intersection take double the damage normally dealt by that weapon (Reflex DC 30 for half). Creatures that fail their saves are knocked prone. If the mythic frost giant manages to deal more damage than the floor’s hardness, all of the squares adjacent to the intersection become difficult terrain. The save DC is Strength-based.

Icewalker (Ex) A mythic frost giant can move across icy surfaces without penalty and does not need to make Acrobatics checks to run or charge on ice.

Numbing Sleet (Su) Any creature not immune to cold that starts its turn in the giant’s aura is staggered for 1 round (Fortitude DC 24 negates). The sleet extinguishes torches and small fires, provides the giant with 50% concealment against ranged attacks, and causes the ground in the area to be icy. A creature can walk within or through the giant’s aura at half normal speed with a DC 10 Acrobatics check. Failure means it can’t move in that round, while failure by 5 or more means it falls prone (see the Acrobatics skill for details). The save DC is Constitution-based.

Rime Weapons (Su) All melee and ranged attacks made by the mythic frost giant deal an additional 4d6 points of cold damage.

Snow Vision (Ex) A mythic frost giant can see perfectly well in cold weather conditions, and does not suffer any penalties to Perception checks caused by falling snow or sleet.
