Goliaths are not a natural race.
Using dark magic, sorcerer-kings created them
generations ago by combining humans and giants.
Although most goliaths now live in the city-states,
a number of them wander the high mountains of
Athas. They raid the lowlands for slaves and spoils,
withdrawing to the high vales when pursued. Given
enough incentive, whole tribes of barbaric mountain
goliaths travel to the cities to serve as mercenaries or
soldiers for nobles or a sorcerer-king.
