Just how big is Quentin Barnes?

The GFL is full of very, very big sentients. The elite athletes of the six species that make up the sport are all large for their kind. Put 22 of them together on a gridiron, and it’s surprising the entire stadium doesn’t tilt. So in a land of giants, just how big is Ionath Kraken’s […]
