“Death is too weak to carry me!”
Giants are strong and hardy, with limitless endurance. They’re also dumb as the stone they seem made of. Johrgrund the Giant had the misfortune of attacking Korin and Ruff one day, as they traveled the forest road that Johrgrund considered his. Ruff easily defeated the giant, destroying the creature’s hand in the process. Korin wished to slay Johrgrund, but Ruff thought that would be a waste. Johrgrund swore his everlasting loyalty to Ruff, and has since become his faithful follower. Ruff also forged a giant morningstar to replace Johrgrun’s right hand. The giant couldn’t be happier with the trade.
