Storm giants are extremely intelligent giants who live on cloud islands. Their vision is adapted to underwater conditions, where they see equally as well as they do in the air.[6] They speak Jotunuvar and Jotun.[7]

DescriptionEdit

A storm giant stands about 21 feet tall and weighs 12,000 lbs., they tend to wear fine tunics and belted sandals. When they enter battle, storm giants don bronze breastplates and Corinthian helmets.

Storm giants are the most powerful of giant-kind; their power is near that of the ancient titans. Much like a violent storm, a storm giant is prone to sudden bouts of violence and mood swings. They are brutal and dangerous foes who wield the power of weather and can hurl lightning with a gesture.

Storm giants make their homes on isolated islands or along coastal regions of the world. Despite their temperamental behavior, these beings are the most civilized of the giant races. They will even engage in trade with communities of small folk.

AbilitiesEdit

Storm giants are responsible for throwing lightning bolts across mountain peaks[8].

SocietyEdit

In storm giant society, any act of mercy or charity towards a sentient being is seen as good.[9]
