Seven Kingdoms: Seowyn's Crossing
Goliaths are a hardy race of tribal folk, closely related to mountains and stone. They dwell primarily in their ancestral lands, high in the peaks of the Everfrost Mountains of Aldorath. When the dwarves came to the mountains from Jotunheld, through tunnels under the Frozen Sea, they claimed the mountains as their own, often in conflict with the goliaths. These days, the two peoples enjoy a fair amount of peace, including some mutual trade and cooperative projects. Dwarven merchants often hire goliaths to guard their caravans to other lands, and this is often how the reclusive stone-folk become exposed to the other cultures of Aldorath.
Some goliaths serve the Primal Spirits, while others follow a form of ancestor reverence. They are instinctively very competitive, something which other races sometimes imagine is a form of arrogance. In reality, the goliaths measure themselves against all others around them, in order to try and better themselves.
