Giants are large humanoids native to the continent south of the mainland. They are dark-skinned, and average between 7 and 8 feet tall. They tend to value craftsmanship, art, and dance as a culture. They don’t form countries and large social groups the way humans do much beyond city-states, but are unified enough as a race to stand united against the few aggressive campaigns by human nations against them.
The giants migrated from the southern continent, and so occupy most of the southern coast of the Eastern Kingdoms. They are enough of a military power that they held off Danskgard at their peak, but have little enough interest in conquest that they don’t actively threaten the human lands. Around 100 years ago, something happened in their homeland that forced the vast majority of the giant population to migrate to the Eastern Kingdoms. This has caused considerable pressure as the population boom has forced the giants to take more land or move into human cities or settlements, which isn’t always welcome.
