The city of Nemadji is known as the city of the giants, and at least several hundred dwell here in towering caves, massive pine buildings, and rock shelters. While giants are hostile toward humans and elves alike, they will at times tolerate visitors to their city, so confident they are of their power on their home turf. Nemadji is home to Brak Blackstaff, a stone giant who has been the acting lord of giants since the death of the group's Earl at the hands of Heward's Stalwarts. The giants have been responsible for a number of savage attacks on the elves and men of the lake, particularly the recent Giant Raid of 812.
