Stone giants make up nearly a third of all giants in Serin. They share the same
ancestory as fire and
storm giants, but
over centuries of separation have evolved markedly differently. During the
Great War, giants were
hired muscle for both sides of the fighting, and it was with their help that the elven mages
were defeated by the invading orcs. Giant was put against giant, and when the dust settled
the remaining giants scattered into three tribes. The stone giants wandered into the
wilderness of Serin. Over many years the race of stone giant grew to care only for its own
welfare, for rarely would they see others, and became ignorant of cities and laws.
Most stone giants are self-centered and do not concern themselves with the bigger picture
of politics. They believe those that sit around talking of war and peace are wasting the
moment, and each moment that is wasted is a chance for meaningful action squandered. Stones
do not discuss affairs of fighting with others, they are driven to creating the
the way the moment calls for. A stone giant does not wish to be tied down in any way with
contracts and treaties. As natural wanderers, they are often found alone in places away
from crowds - truly a free spirit.
Roleplaying with other races
Though stone giants do not mix much with other races, they get along well with the
dwarves, who share their
passion for smithing and creating fine weapons. Their closest bonds are with the
sliths, who are also
creatures of the wilderness. Stone giants do not have any particular enemy, for they
do not seek a struggle, though it is understood that some fire giants dislike them for
their waste of talent. Many centuries of primitive life in the wilderness has led to stone
giants gaining little intelligence, retaining their great strength and constitution from
their physical nature.
