Turbine's official Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach website has been updated with another monster profile feature, this time detailing the Storm Giant. A little something about the massive creature:
I've heard elvish scholars quote legends of other worlds. In these worlds, not every storm giant is evil folk. Some of these lost bits of lore maintain that, elsewhere, the storm giants are simply forces of nature, wild and tempestuous but not malicious, not bent on rulership or destruction of the "lesser races" (here they mean all humanoids, not just dwarves and halflings.) Maybe these hypothetical giants-like so many other green-skinned creatures of the natural world-are just defenders of their respective natural worlds. But here in Eberron, there is nothing to justify that supposition. The storm giants were active members, leaders probably, of the ancient giant empire of Xen'drik. After the dragons, it was the first real civilization on our world, say the learned. Long ago, elves served the giants in this empire as their slaves. Only after the giant empire's collapse-some say to infighting, some to invasion, and others blame some magical catastrophe-did the humanoid races rise to prominence on Eberron.
