FHOIMORIEN GIANT CHARACTERS
Taking Racial Feats will take the sting out of caster level loss, but only a little. You're race is mostly some form of Gish.
Adventuring Race: Fhoimorien are prolific raiders, who sometimes raid for gold or supplies, but mostly for the joy of killing. Exiles from their people may adventure for other reasons, if they can find someone to trust them.
Character Development: Members of this race are hated by all, and you will need to find a way to disguise yourself or convince others that you are different somehow.
Character Names:

Behaviors: The Fhoimorien are said to be extremely brutal savages, often pulling apart smaller victims or even leaving their own wounded to die.
Language: The Fhoimorien speak Giant.

FHOIMORIEN GIANT SOCIETY

Alignment : The Fhoimorien are almost universally Neutral Evil.
Lands : Fhoimorien's are only seen in the Stonecrown Mountains and Rjurik Highlands.
Settlements : There are rumors the Fhoimorien are in Vosgaard, but this has not been confirmed.
Beliefs :The Fhoimorien have no known religion.
Relations: Other races are food, torture victims or sadistic entertainment.

FHOIMORIEN GIANTS ADVENTURES
A truly mighty Mountain Giant has lived in the Stonecrown Mountains for ages, but is only rarely seen. He has been spotted quite often of late, and his behavior is both unusual and disturbing. Even to monsters like you. You are being sent to determine whether he is a threat.
Some magical ailment has been killing the local Stone Giants. Normally this would be cause for joy, but the Giants aren't staying dead...
The Goblin Kingdoms are getting uppity and insisting the mountains are theirs and theirs alone. You will enjoy crushing them.
