Goliath Liberator - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Giants - especially frost and hill giants - sometimes kidnap and enslave goliaths, putting them to work performing menial labor in their mines or camps. Particularly evil giants might even capture goliaths for the cook-pot or the sacrificial altar. When goliaths don't return to camp, the entire tribe mobilizes to find them. If the tribe is fortunate, it has one or more goliath liberators among its members to lead the rescue.
Goliath liberators are experts at infiltrating giant dwellings, freeing the captives within, then exacting revenge on the giants while the freed goliaths escape. Many are their tribe's best soldiers and hunters, and they have honed their combat techniques against giants through bitter experience. Fully half of all goliath liberators have spent time in the chains of giants.
Barbarians, rangers, and rogues are the classes most likely to have the combination of stealth and fighting prowess necessary to become a goliath liberator. A few fighters and druids take a level or two of the prestige class as well.
