In the Footsteps of Giants
In the Footsteps of Giants is a ongoing campaign world that was originally set up to be used with the Pathfinder Role Playing Game. It has since been destroyed and brought back from the ashes to allow for the smoother system of Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition.
The Stories take place in the world of Dyrr'lydr'heim, or Dyrr for short. This world was once ruled solely by Giants that, though ancient, built little in the way of lasting structures. Instead their culture was entwined with the land and the magic that came from it.
One day, long ago, the sky split open and monstrous creatures known as Dragons came to the world. Determined to take the world and its energy for themselves the great wyrms went to war with the giants. Decades passed and as both sides lost numbers they reached out to other worlds for aid. Stealing and abducting other races to their war.
In the end the giants who remained decided to flee their dying world using the magic that brought the dragons to theirs. The giants abandoned the peoples they gathered to their fates at the claws of the dragons and stepped through a portal. Thousands of years have passed and the dragons, too, are no more. Leaving the world to its new, small, rulers.
