Background

The Gods of the Giants: By all accounts, only a handful of Giantish gods survived the decline of their race over the past Age, the collapse of the Durgoshii Empire, and the final battle between Dröss Jämmerlich and the Theoneans of the Monotheocrate Order.

All Giantish priests all pay homage to Humbaba, the Last Son of Grendel, the most ancient Giantish god, in addition to whatever other patron god they may worship. Only Humbaba remembers the Age of Giants, all the other deities arose afterwards, during the Age of Mortals. Humbaba is the access point, the Gatekeeper, even to those gods who lack his cruel and brooding ways. Even unto the Giantish gods themselves, he is something akin to divinity. As such, they must choose one of his domains before selecting any from their chosen deity. Humbaba cares little for the disputes between the other Giantish gods and races and only interferes if feels their disputes become a threat to Giantdom. The most apostate Giantish priests believe Humbaba is no Giant at all, but an Ascednant Watcher.
