Giants are huge, stupid monsters who blunder about searching for flesh and beer. But it was not always so, for theirs is a tragic story...
Millennia ago, the Giants lived in castles hewn from the vast peaks of the Mountains of Mourn, their realm a peaceful archipelago of plateaus surrounded by a sea of white cloud. Civilisations rose and fell below, but these Sky Titans remained hidden from the eyes of the smaller races.
This world was shattered when the Ogre homelands were destroyed by the coming of the Great Maw, forcing the Ogres into the mountains. A war in the heavens ensued. Though the Sky Titans were mighty, the Ogres' numbers prevailed, and they held feast after feast in the castles of their victims before pulling down their fastnesses and hurling them into the valleys below.
The few surviving Sky Titans fled. Forced into small tribes, they became inbred, their intellect dwindling. Now the last remaining Giants are nomads, terrorising the Old World as mercenaries or brutes.

Giants are, well, giant. They are peculiar creatures who tower over all other humanoid races. It is rumored that the Giants were once part of a single civilization, but there is no proof of this having been the case. For one thing, Giants seem to lack the mental capacity for the organized thought necessary for such a thing to occur.
Today, Giants are scattered throughout the Old World, most content to live amongst the "little'uns" as soldiers of fortune in exchange for a steady supply of food and drink.
In between their many feedings, Giants are warriors of frightening effectiveness, as long as they're steered in the proper direction. A Giant's club can pulp an entire unit of troops, to say nothing of those who have the misfortune to end up as a mid-fight snack.
