Cloud Giants

Cloud giants consider themselves above all others, except storm giants, whom they regard as equals. They are creative, appreciate fine things, and are master strategists in battle. Cloud giants’ skin ranges in color from milky white to light sky blue. Their hair is silvery white or brass, and their eyes are iridescent blue. Adult males are about 18 feet tall and weigh about 5,000 pounds. Females are slightly shorter and lighter. Cloud giants can live to be 400 years old. Cloud giants dress in the finest clothing available and wear jewelry. To many, appearance indicates station; the better the clothes and the finer the jewelry, the more important the wearer. They also appreciate music, and most can play one or more instruments (the harp is a favorite). The majority of cloud giants dwell on cloud-shrouded mountain peaks, making their lairs in crude castles. They live in small groups but know the location of several other groups and come together with some of these other tribes for celebrations, battles, or trade. Good-aligned cloud giants trade with humanoid communities for food, wine, jewelry, and cloth. Some establish such good relations that they come to a community’s aid if it is endangered. Evil-aligned cloud giants tend to raid communities to get what they want. Legends tell of rare cloud giants that build castles on magical cloud islands isolated even from other cloud giants. Cloud Islands are reputed to be fantastic places with giant sized gardens of fruit trees.
