ABOUT

The hill giant chieftain is cursed with an unusually small stature. After nearly 20 years of fending for himself in the untamed wilderness, he reemerged from the woods and tracked down the tribe that had abandoned him so many years before. His people hardly recognized him, but soon found themselves in a state of dread and admiration when the vengeful giant bashed their current chieftain’s head in with one swing of his mighty club, claiming the title for himself. Anger still burns within the betrayed hill giant, and his people know to fear his frequent bouts of violent, indiscriminate rage.
