Little is known about giants, but I’ve dedicated a great deal of time and effort into digging up what remains after The Great War.copyright protection17PENANA4wJph3m3rU

From what I’ve gleaned from the few remaining ancient texts, giants were far larger than most people seem to think. I have a student in my class, Gregory something or other I believe his name is… anyway, I hear some of the other students refer to him as a giant.copyright protection17PENANAl5GnIN02PC

He is, however, only eight feet tall. Giants are much, much bigger.copyright protection17PENANAVoXbYjdigu

How tall I cannot say as so little remains after The Great War and the horrors that followed. When those who were still alive after that brutal war were scrambling to survive, it’s easy to understand how so much was lost.copyright protection17PENANAKl1tKjx6mY

Oh, what I’d give to read the texts they once had… but that’s neither here nor there. We’re talking about giants.copyright protection17PENANA1H4H5Mv6Pk

I have come across texts that suggest only the tallest, stoutest walls could hope to stand against giants. Men are said to be like insects by comparison, and the massive creatures possess unimaginable strength.copyright protection17PENANAIKJGVHZ9Zf

Castle walls were even larger back then, so when they say the tallest, stoutest walls… it should be noted that our present-day fortifications simply don’t measure up.copyright protection17PENANAEJAFdlYKrl

Perhaps a few do, but not many.copyright protection17PENANAIs2Ma8zGep

Each giant is said to have been able to hurl boulders like a catapult with their bare hands. Some wielded powerful magic, but most relied merely on brute strength.copyright protection17PENANA1X9KD5sDes

If that wasn’t terrifying enough, they also had a habit of taming ‘lesser’ creatures.copyright protection17PENANATScuypPx9h

The kinds of creatures you or I would run from at the very whisper of their name!copyright protection17PENANASSJUFU3fAh

I’ve come across some that refer to “great lizards whose gaze turns even the stoutest warrior to stone.” I think we all know what that is likely talking about!copyright protection17PENANAECfOmTTPw8

But, you may join with me in the reassuring knowledge that all giants were wiped out sometime around The Great War. Our ancestors met their armies and slew them no matter the cost.copyright protection17PENANAhp1tTzSI62

Something for which we can all be grateful.copyright protection17PENANAZYUJTAEWQf

Can you imagine what the heroes of old must’ve faced? Creatures that could topple castle walls without siege engines! I often wonder what powers and knowledge have been lost since that time. What enabled our ancestors to stand against such fearsome monsters?copyright protection17PENANAeuRuienc3T

I shall continue my research. Perhaps one day I will find the answer.copyright protection17PENANAkkjlNdUGV1
