ElmerthePointy's FFXI Gigas Lore Translations:

  • "Commissioned by the Shadow Lord, these humongous beastmen traveled from islands in the North as mercenaries"
  • "Jotunn are a smaller tribe that hail from even farther north than Gigas. To protect against the cold, they wear fur around their waist and as socks. They come from frigid areas where it snows all year round, which has given their body a pale blue color."
  • "It is customary for Gigas to take the shields from heroes they defeat and hang them from their hip. Why are there so many wooden Round Shields though? According to Hume legend, there lives a clan of Vikings, far to the north. They are said to have strength in battle that rivals the Gigas themselves and the theory is that those round shields once belonged to that heroic clan."
