Large humanoids?

In my current D&D campaign, I'm playing an urban druid from the dragon magazine. I'm loving her to death, but there are a few aspects of the urban druid that I have issues with. One of them is the urban shape.

As an urban druid, Adriel can change into any humanoid or into a few urban creatures (spiders, rats, dogs, etc.)

At this point, Adriel has learned how to change into tiny or large creatures and I'm befuddled by the benefit of this. Tiny, okay, she can turn into rats, now. But large? Can anyone suggest some good large humanoids? Everything I look at is either a giant (ogres) or monstrous humanoid. Is there ANYTHING that she can turn into that is large? Or is this ability junk?

Take a look at the Alternative Urban Companions chart in that same magazine. She can turn into a Large snake, scorpion, centipede, etc. Also: otyugh, Carrion Crawler, Pulverizer (I'd have to double check the sizes, though).

Carrion Crawler? *cackles* Okay, I see it. Yes, definitely the help I was looking for. Gracias!

There are almost no Large humaniods. They are all giants or monstorous humanoids.

This is mostly an artifact of limiting the power of the lower-level shape changing spells.

As for other things common in a city, that are large: Horses and other mounts.

Hmm.... you're right. Oh, I can see myself having fun with that one. Thank you!!

Aren't Monstrous Humanoids still Humanoids, since they have the word in their type? Or have I been playing too much MTG again?

What about Gnolls, they're pretty big.

Or mabye an Ogre magi?

LOL! Minitaurs. What you get when you cross a cow and a Halfling.

Gnolls are fine -- they're humanoids (Medium size)

Ogres and Ogre Mages are Giants, so out.

Minitaurs are Monstorous Humanoids, and so out.

Too much Magic.

Monstorous Humanoids are independent types from Humanoids. (see the listing of types for Ranger Favorite Enemies, amoung others).

Don't forget the Motettin, the Apartment Complex that Walks Like a Man.
