There are giants both in the northern forests near the Valley of Oblivion and in the south near the Xordai territories. These gigantic, human-like beings live their own culture, have their own language, and keep away from Humans.
Long ago, towards the end of the Third Age, the giants were among the first lower creatures on earth. Their great settlements were in the mountains of the north. Over the centuries, the tribes have become more and more sparsely populated, and eventually only very few giants can be found near human territories.
Giants are peaceful by nature, but their completely different language and culture can quickly cause misunderstandings that can end in violence.
