The World of Aeternum
Legend tells of a child being born into a family of giants. The child was tiny, fragile – the antithesis to what these giants believed in. They took their own firstborn son and threw him like so much garbage into the wilderness, assuming this frail being would perish.
He did not. He was rescued by others like him – older children who were also the offspring of giants who felt like they did not belong due to their small and seemingly stunted sizes. They were a disorganized people who barely survived but survive they did.
That firstborn child grew into an adult and led his people to victory when they were threatened by an invading army of Orcs. He was christened Nimblefoot for his swift victories and was the first leader of a new race that was quarter of the size of their giant ancestors and half the size of a man.
