|Frost giant jarl|
|Sees in the dark?||No|
Frost giant jarl is a type of monster in ADOM. They are the toughest amongst the frost giants, which are not ruled by a king (as explained in their monster memory description). They are very strong, can smash doors, and can deal significant damage from afar by firing rocks. They often drop the slings they use when killed.
Like most creatures of ice they are immune to cold attacks, but highly vulnerable to fire — something certainly worth bearing in mind for physically weak spellcasters trying to survive against them.

Alone of the giant races, those of the cold are not beholden to kings, but to the ruling jarl, formerly those in power immediately below the king. The last of the kings was defeated by a stripling with little strength and so the position of king lost its honor. The dominant jarls decided to divide the power amongst themselves until one truly worthy of the title could claim it by defeating all of the jarls in succession. Since the jarls come into power only through defeating the great, this task has proven too difficult, and so these powerful giants rule their people.
