Storm giants are the most powerful of the modern giants.[1]

Description[]

Storm giants resemble gray-skinned humanoids, but are much larger, at about 26 feet tall. They generally have purple-gray hair and emerald eyes, but a few have hair of a darker purplish or black hue.[1]

Abilities[]

Unlike the other types of giants, storm giants are amphibious, being able to breathe both air and water. They are the strongest of the giants, with the ability to hurl great rocks or bolts of lightning at their foes.[1]

History[]

Most scholars agree that there was one race of giants during the Age of Giants, and that it was after the fall of the giants 40,000 years ago that they splintered into different kinds of giants, including storm giants. However, a small faction of scholars disagree and hold the opinion that the different kinds of giants were present before the collapse.[4] It is also believed that even the storm giants are lesser versions of the ancient giants.[5]

The City of Indigo Shadows was a floating city inhabited by storm giants, who forged items to help cure afflictions suffered by the giants during their war with the quori.[6] The Estarn empire was another organization of storm giants that harnessed lightning to do battle with the quori.[7]

Thousands of years after the fall of the giants, a group of giants known as the Fallen Stone settled near Stormreach, driving out the local sahuagin, before themselves being driven away due to a plague. It is uncertain if these were storm giants or amphibious stone giants.[8]

Lands[]

Storm giants dwell on or near the continent of Xen'drik, usually at the highest mountains or beneath the seas near the continent.[9]

Notable Storm Giants[]

Many members of the Scriveners of the Sky are storm giants. These storm giants are researchers seeking to acquire and preserve ancient giant knowledge and records.[10]

Myths and Legends[]

Some rumors claim that the terrible storm permanently over Tempest Isle in the Lhazaar Principalities is the work of storm giant exiles from Xen'drik.[11][12]
