“For too long have we defied our own needs and wants.” – the Jarl said, raising his voice so that others can hear him. “For too long have we stayed passive, waiting for good fortune to come to us.” – he continued as the rest started nodding their heads in confirmation. “No more. Today, in honor of great Filkir, the greatest King we have known, we take destiny into our own hands! Today, we march to Hell and back!”

Frost Giants are around 20 feet tall and weigh around 2800 pounds. Their skin is white, and sometimes slightly bluish, while their hair is mostly white or yellow. They live in cold and mountainous environments and are immune to cold effects.

They are loosely based on Vikings, portrayed as strong creatures who live in harsh environments, and love to raid, fight, wrestle, and boast. They live in communities led by a Jarl, who is most likely the strongest Frost Giant of them all.

While they can have similar names to other types of giants, they can also have more Viking-like names as well. Some receive nicknames, but they are only used by others. Names like Tremgant, Leimdall, Matver, and Frolia are common.
