I originally planned on going the other way; instead of giving the race extra hp, they would get damage reduction nonmagical weaponsbased on a static thri kreen of athas or their Constitution modifier.

Like what the Heavy Armor Master feat did, but without armor restriction.

Overall, reconstructing the half-giant was a simple process. Only thing that troubled me and it still does was the double hit point equivalent.

The Thri-Kreen Being the most alien of all playable character races meant it had plenty of different abilities.

For once, multiple arms equaled multiple thri kreen of athas four, to be precise. The only interesting part of the huntmind is thri kreen of athas thri-kreen treat trading as a ritualized hunt, with the buyer as the hunter and the seller as the prey, and sometimes a seller will jump the gun and offer to trade something that they think the buyer wants for something the buyer has, so they can take the hunter position.

But then the book undermines it by assigning no mechanical weight to this in the barter rules and saying that there is no stigma to either position so none of it matters anyway.

The clutchmind has the potential to be more interesting, but there isn't much done thri kreen of athas it. There's no mechanics attached, thri-kreen can be members of multiple clutches at the same time, and there's no guidance about what happens when clutches conflict.

Okay, so thri-kreen have a strict dominance hierarchy within their clutches and will obey orders from higher-placed members without complaint, but what happens if a thri-kreen in overlapping clutches is given contradictory orders by kreen in two thri kreen of athas clutches?

What terrors lie in the lost secrets of their past? The thri-kreen society is very organized, and they have a strong hive mentality when in groups.

There are, however, feats that will add to AC in certain circumstances. In 4E a thri-kreen has a higher base speed 7. This is the ability to do more in less time. A thri-kreen uses less water than thri kreen of athas races. Base thri-kreen get a slight bonus when jumping and the racial paragon class adds another power that allows better jumping.
