About

The mountain lord is the king of all giants. Unlike most giants, he is very wise and quite intelligent. This giant operates separately from the two fey courts.

Lofty Ambitions. The mountain lord is plotting to take over Feyland by pitting the Seelie and Unseelie courts against each other.

Towering Throne. Most giants live in a huge cave complex deep in the mountains of Feyland. A collection of rock giants, mist giants, hill giants, and ogres make up the inhabitants. The mountain lord makes his home in these caverns.

Ogre Minions. All the ogres, including the ogre king are allied with the giants in Feyland. Many ogres are used to do the dirty work for their larger cousins.
