    The Inukpasugjuit are the 'greater giants of Inuit myth (the lesser giants being referred to as the Inugaruligasugjuit). At their smallest they are described as having fingers "the size of walruses" and to be able to fish for whales. At their largest their footprints become lakes, their hair brushes the clouds, and they can swallow whales whole. The Inukpasugjuit keep well to themselves, and little is known of them. Overall they appear to be fairly Neutral, with minorities among their population who could be considered Good or Evil. Whatever their Alignment they appeared to be highly territorial, and the meeting of two of their kind was always likely to end in battle unless they were family members who liked one another well.

    The Inuit are very cautious and fearful of them. After all their names translation implies they are not simply giant people, but monstrous beings who only resemble people (right down to using clothes and weapons similar to the Inuit). The Inukpasugjuit are often associated with the rocks and water (and sometimes the cold as well), and some stories paint them less as giant men and more as spirits of the land with access to vast supernatural power (particularly the ability to affect the water and weather). Some adopt or treat humans well, some keep them as pets (or husbands), and some think of them as snacks like berries or nuts.

    Improved Grapple (Ex): An Inukpasugjuit can make Grapple Checks without provoking an Attack of Opportunity.

    Trample (Ex): Reflex Save DC 88 for half damage, Save DC is Str based. In addition if the Save is failed and the creature is at least 3 Size Categories smaller than the Inukpasugjuit it is considered Pinned in a Grapple.

    Swallow Whole (Ex): An Inukpasugjuit can try to swallow a grabbed opponent two Size Categories smaller than itself by making a successful grapple check. Once inside, the opponent takes 2d8+18 points of crushing damage plus 2d8+16 points of acid damage per round from his digestive juices. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by dealing 50 points of damage to the giant's digestive tract (AC xx). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out. The Inukpasugjuit gullet can hold 2 Huge, 8 Large, 32 Medium, 128 Small, or 512 Tiny or smaller creatures.

    Rock Throwing (Ex): The range increment is 240 feet for an Inukpasugjuit’s thrown rocks (see Monster Manual under Giant).

    Angakkuq: An Inukpasugjuit who has an Int of 15 or higher may cast spells as a Druid whose Caster Level is equal to his Hit Dice (meaning in the case of the average Inukpasugjiut with this ability, that he is a 100th Level caster). Unlike normal the Angakkuq uses Charisma instead of Wisdom as his primary casting stat.

    Frightful Presence (Ex): The Inukpasugjuit can inspire terror by charging or attacking. All creatures within 360' must succeed on a DC 72 Will save or become Panicked for 4d6 rounds. The save DC is Charisma-based. A successful Save means the opponent is immune to that Inukpasugjuit's Frightful Presence for 24 hours.

    Constrict (Ex): On a successful grapple check, an Inukpasugjuit deals 4d8+50 points of damage.

    Huge Size (Ex): Due to their impossible vastness an Inukpasugjuit adds it's Size Penalty as a Bonus to damage rolls (i.e. being a Colossal being it has a -8 Size Penalty to AC, therefore it adds +8 to damage rolls).

    Swat (Ex): If the Inukpasugjuit hits a flying creature it's opponent must make a DC 88 Fortitude Save (Save DC is Str based) or fall from the sky taking appropriate falling damage (see DMG).

    Rock Catching (Ex): An Inukpasugjuit gains a +4 racial bonus on its Reflex save when attempting to catch a thrown rock (see Monster Manual under Giant).

    Handle Monster (Ex): The Inukpasugjuit raise gigantic wolves in much the same way Inuit raise dogs, and train them to aid in hunting things like even more gigantic Polar Bears. As such they may use Handle Animal against Magical Beasts with a 1-2 Int as well as Animals without the usual penalty.

    Subtype: While all Inukpasugjuit have the Cold Subtype, some have magical powers granting them additional Subtypes. They may choose the Air, Earth or Water Subtype as well, and if they do, spells they cast with that descriptor have their Saving Throw DC increased by +2.

    Adoption (Su): If an Inukpasugjuit formally adopts a human being as their family, they will take them away from humankind to live out in the freezing wastes. If the human remains away from humankind over a season, he will gain the Adopted Template.

    Combat: The Inukpasugjuit seem to prefer wrestling and unarmed combat amongst themselves. Weapons are mostly used for hunting or for serious fights.
