Martial, aggressive, and psionic, the half-giant is virtually the racial incarnation of the psychic warrior. Favored among other classes, the half-giant race tends down the path of the psychic warrior, for it is the road that most closely resembles their own outlook.
To take a half-giant psychic warrior racial specialty level, a character must be a half-giant about to take her 1st, 5th, or 8th level of psychic warrior.
GAME RULE INFORMATION
Hit Die: d10
Half-Giant psychic warrior racial specialty levels have the class skills of the standard psychic warrior class, plus Intimidate.
Skill Points at Each Level: 2 + Int modifier. Skill Points at 1st Level: (2 + Int modifier) x4.
All of the following are class features of the half-giant psychic warrior racial specialty levels.
Staggering Strike (Ex): When a half-giant psychic warrior makes a melee attack (but not a touch attack), she may expend her psionic focus to deliver a staggering strike. Regardless of the outcome of the attack roll (resolved normally), if the attack exceeds the opponent’s touch AC, they must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + one-half her character level + her Strength modifier) or be staggered for one round. A staggered character can take a move action or a standard action in one round, but not both. This ability replaces the bonus feat a psychic warrior normally gains at 1st level.
Overwhelming Force (Su): When a half-giant psychic warrior makes a melee attack, she may expend her psionic focus to blast her target off its feet. If the attack is successful, the target must make a Reflex saving throw (DC 10 + damage dealt) or be knocked prone. This ability replaces the bonus feat a psychic warrior normally gains at 5th level.
Focused Attack (Su): At 8th level, when a half-giant psychic warrior expends her psionic focus as part of a melee attack, she may apply two abilities that require the expenditure of psionic focus to that attack instead of one (for instance, the Psionic Weapon feat and the overwhelming force ability described above, or the Psionic Weapon and Deep Impact feats). After resolving an attack using this feature, the half-giant psychic warrior suffers a -2 penalty to attack and damage rolls, saving throws, skill checks and ability checks for one round. This ability does not function if she expends her focus from another source, such as from Psicrystal Containment. This ability replaces one power known a psychic warrior normally gains at 8th level. From this point on, the half-giant psychic warrior knows one fewer power.
