Storm giants were extremely intelligent giants who lived on cloud islands. Their vision was adapted to underwater conditions, where they saw equally as well as they did in the air.[11] They spoke Jotunuvar and Jotun.[12]

DescriptionEdit

A storm giant stood about 26 feet tall and weighed over 3,000 lbs. They tended to wear fine tunics and belted sandals.

There were two ethnicities of storm giants; most had pale, light green skin and dark green hair and eyes, but a small number had violet skin, dark blue hair, and silver eyes.[13]

AbilitiesEdit

Storm giants were responsible for throwing lightning bolts across mountain peaks.[14]

SocietyEdit

The head of a storm giant tribe's ordning was called a "paramount".[15]

In storm giant society, any act of mercy or charity towards a sentient being was seen as good.[16]

HabitatEdit

Storm giants generally lived inside of castles, either located atop mountains or underneath the ocean. Those that could not sustain themselves on hunting alone often built large gardens, fields, or vineyards near their homes.[1]

RelationsEdit

Storm giants that dwelled on land were usually seen as being on good terms with nearby copper dragons and good-aligned cloud giants, often working with them to ensure a mutual defense.[1]

Subraces Edit

Thousands of years ago, a band of storm giants was cast out and imprisoned in the Underdark, where they became maurs, or hunched giants. Incredibly pale and so malformed that they couldn't even stand up straight, they struggled to retain their storm giant culture while scratching out a meager existence underground.[17]
