About

In the eyes of the gods, giants are titanspawn, and they were justly punished after the defeat of their titan masters. The storm god passed down a most ironic punishment to the arrogant cloud-dwelling giants. The god tore their physical forms asunder, making them as hollow as the wind. Thus, these giants, who had formerly crushed dwarves with one blow of their mighty fists, were reduced to cloudy, ephemeral beings, doomed to an eternity as strange creatures of the clouds and mists, mere shadows of their former awesomeness.

A celestian giant appears in a huge, translucent, vaguely humanoid form, its cloudlike, amorphous body wavering and shifting as it moves. Huge crystal blue eyes stare down with a cold, startlingly fierce intelligence.

Accursed Ones. The celestians are not as dim-witted as some of their gigantic brethren. They have adapted to their cloudlike state and learned to use their magical gifts in ways appropriate to their forms. Their transformation has only increased their fury, so the celestians spread destruction wherever they go.

Vengeful and Bitter. The celestians’ curse has created a great deal of tension between them and the rest of giant-kind, who usually consider them weak and pathetic. On those rare occasions when they cross paths, clashes between true giants and celestians are marvelous to behold. The true focus of celestians’ ire, however, remains directed toward the gods and their servants. They are as bitter as the titans themselves, and they abhor any priests, paladins, or other divine spellcasters they encounter, targeting such opponents before all others.
