War of the Burning Sands
The hill giants that, by their own accounts, have lived on the Isle of Ledo since the creation of the world, having arisen from the lava-filled caldera of Muku Kraga, the island’s volcanic peak and the physical representation of the giants’ guardian elemental spirit. They live off the meager offerings of the land and mine the rich flint deposits buried within the body of the mountain to sell or trade to wandering merchants. The giants believe the dwarves of the Rockcutter Clan of Ledopolus to be scheming to steal the flint from beneath their feet, and have gone to extreme measures to prevent the dwarves from establishing a foothold on the island. They are led by the aggressive but respected Morghan Grakkul and his half-giant son Moctal Grakkul. Though Morghan would smash Bruthambar Rockcutter, the leader of the dwarves, on sight, Moctal has been urging his father and the rest of the clan to take a more diplomatic approach.
