The Realm of Feror
Giants were once rare, taking from the small folk what they needed to survive and hiding in the tallest mountains or densest forests and swamps. In an effort to appease them, many races sought them out to offer them tribute. This contact eventually bore fruit, as the giants took mates among many of those that reached out to them. Goliaths were born from the smallest giants mating with the tallest of humans, while ogres were created by the union of orcs and giants. Among giants, these mixed breeds rarely find home, but orcs and humans are often quick to welcome these large creatures into their ranks.
