Giantish Kingdoms - Region


Description: Some of the most magnificent structures in all of Erdessa are the imposing halls of the giant kings that rise from the wastes that border the Cyran Empire. It is said that the races of the giants were forged from the bedrock of Erdessa by the Powers to serve as their personal servants. When the Powers retreated from the world, the giants we the first to build their kingdoms. But the nobility of their makers was soon forgotten as the giants began to lord over the smaller races as tyrants. It was only a slave revolt among the dwarves, ogres and men that finally threw off the giant’s yolk and broke their dominance over Erdessa.Today the Giantish Kingdoms are nothing more than disorganized warring fiefdoms and clans. The giantish civilization is on a long decline from its glory days. They are locked into a protracted battle with the dwarven crusaders of Rajihlar and with the legions of the Cyran Empire. Many a giant has been captured and forced into servitude by the imperial forces. Scholars wonder if the emperor is holding back from exterminating them because they provide such an abundant source of useful slaves. But anyone who knows history should not underestimate the giants so easily. If a threat were to unite the Giantish Kingdoms, even the emperor of Cyra would have something to fear.
