[RPG] a Hill Giant’s reach for unarmed attacks and grapples


The Hill Giant is Huge (occupies a 15'x15' space). It has a Greatclub weapon attack with reach 10'.

What is the Giant's unarmed reach? What is his reach for grappling?

Best Answer

The reach would be the default (5ft)

The reach keyword only applies to what the stat block attaches it to, in this case the greatclub.

There is no description of a Hill Giant's unarmed strike (you could certainly homebrew one) so it would follow the default rules:

Most creatures have a 5-foot reach and can thus attack targets within 5 feet of them when making a melee attack. Certain creatures (typically those larger than Medium) have melee attacks with a greater reach than 5 feet, as noted in their descriptions

Grappling follows the same restrictions as it counts as a melee Attack action.
