Antaeans are hulking, powerfully-built humanoids that tower seven to eight feet in height and which tend to have bronze or grey skin, dark hair, and bronze, silver, or copper eyes. They are descended from a legendary Giant who was slain by a somewhat more formidable demigod and have a reputation for being stoic and fearless.

Because of their Large size their weapons do greater base damage and have better range than those scaled for Human-sized people.

Antaeans Homesteaders are skilled at farming, employing a subtle earth magic to increase the fecundity of the land under their care, and are generally capable of dealing with the sorts of threats that can appear on the frontiers where they dwell. They tend to organize themselves into loose but orderly communities in which individuals strike a balance between autonomy and interaction with their neighbors, and where cooperation is exercised most profoundly in matters of survival (e.g., defense against attack).
