Physiology:

It takes about 2 years for a female Firblog to give birth to the child.

Society:

The character is responsible for worshipping the Goddess called Hiatea. It is the giant deity representing nature to the people. Primary symbol of the Goddess is a flaming spear however her power lays in transforming into a giantess with long legs, bow and quiver of arrows. The eyes are hazel brown in color while the hairs are red. Firblog regard her as a true hunter and protector and try to emulate her behavior.

The characters are primarily against the social order called ordning among the giants. In short, they are more individualistic and refuse to get bounded to the clan stereotypes. A system called code that came ages ago is the hallmark of the behavior of Firblog 5e. Implementation of the system may vary from one community to another.

The code is an indication that the society occupies a far superior position when compared to an individual. According to the system, actions determined the fate of the person instead of heritage or relatives. In case of the breach of the code, D&D Firblog is treated as a slave by the tribe. There are extreme cases, when he was completely banished from the community. One of the most positive implications of the code was that the characters would treat all the species as equals. Therefore, they do not display superiority complex as the other giants do in the virtual space.

Firblogs imbibe a democracy format called the cast that includes the summoning of the members of the tribe. They cast their votes on important issues using the rune engraved stone.

D&D 5e Firblog is of the view that charity is not only a vital virtue and an important trait. The receptor should not know the identity of the donor because in case of revelation, the characters become reclusive over a period of time. Firblogs are quite sociable with established friends located among all the species. They are quite honest and are known to lie because a single untrue statement can make them depressive and also cause physical discomfort.

Firblogs reside in hilly settlements or deep forests, therefore they rarely trust people. In order to get shelter, the characters built thatched roofs and defensive towers that also provided alerts in case of an approaching enemy.

History:

The race came into being when Othea, wife of the deity Annam All father was involved in a torrid affair with ULUTIU. She was not loyal to her husband and had an affair with the Lord in the ice top bore four children. The eldest one was the founder of the race Firblog however on listening to the stories of her infidelity, the deity killed ULUTIU and hurled his body into the cold sea. Othea was later on poisoned by her son Lanaxis when she prevented him from saving the citadel. While dying she cursed him with dire consequences, therefore he fled to Arborea.

Notable Firblogs:

Tavis Burdun:

He was a prominent warrior serving in the Kingdom of Hartsvale. Tavis also led the scout’s organization of the king Camden and later on inherited the place consisting of orphans in the region.

Tavis had a wonderful personality with loyalty and honor as the important attributes. He was compassionate towards the poor as well as strays. In addition, the warrior also acted as father figure for many young people in the kingdom. He has a brain of steel while dealing with the crisis like situations.
Vander:

He was a notable assassin of the Night masks and afterward became a companion of Cadderly Bonaduce. The individual had an amazing personality with red hair and twelve feet height. He was more than 800 pounds displaying thick muscles. Numerous scars on his body indicated that Vander was battle hardened. Due to dark eyes under the bushy brows, he appeared fearsome to the opponents in the battle. Vander wore wide bracers with wide studs and an array of jewels on the wrists. The beard skin cloak with giant swords at the side reminds the people of Viking warriors of the long gone era.

Vander was born in the Firbolg community residing in the spine of World Mountains. When he became an assassin, ghost took possession of his body and forced him to perform evil tasks. Once upon a time Vander tried to escape the vice like grip of the assassin and fled into the mountains but was tracked down easily.

Ghost played a dirty game to facilitate a body switch; therefore Vander mistakenly killed some of the members of his own community. Cadderly Bonaduce played an important role in freeing the body of Vander as he killed the ghost.

Abilities:

  • The height of Vander was same as the other giant kins but he had the heritage gift to transform himself into a large man.
  • He was not only skilled in fighting with the swords but also was adept in killing the opponents with bare hands.
