My favourite of the three giant races: grim, sinister beings stalking the desert. Does their honouring of the Lemeians show itself in any way? I remember reading somewhere of a race (can't remember if it was real or fictional) who showed respect for their bravest enemies by subjecting them to the most brutal tortures before killing them - they believed that by doing so they were allowing that person to truly show their courage and would gain honour/riches in the afterlife. I could image the Surtur doing this. Go to Comment
My least favourite of the giants - they remind me too much of the ones in the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant (though I realise this may not be intentional), in terms of mentality, seafaring nature and stone working. Good in conjunction with the other two though. Go to Comment
A good camping-place with something extra: a gallows with a hangman, reduced mostly to bones and a few rags. It marrily hovers in the wind. Any manipulation will make it fall apart. An excellent camping place, except for the midnight hours, when ghosts of those executed haunt here. Some wail for their crimes, some re-live their execution over and over, some want to have a talk, and still some others want to scare the Living for fun.
