For reasons forgotten over time, Giants are kindred to Dwarves. Regardless of the validity of that notion, these immense beings maintained good relations with their shorter counterparts. Since Dwarves respect the slow and stalwart, Giants are ideal allies. Giants lack the sophistication of Dwarves and are commonly said to be stupid. Not unlike Trolls, Bards sings tales of simple children outwitting Giants or defeating them with a simple weapon like a sling.
In combat, Giants wield huge tree-trunk clubs which deal devastation to everything they strike. Giant can hurl boulders at opponents or walls, enabling the Dwarves to avoid complicated siege engines.
