JOTUNHEIM

Norse legendary place

Also known as JÖTUNHEIMR

Land of the Giants

This has nothing to do with the television show. JOTUNHEIM is one of the NINE-WORLDS and is the place where the Rock Giants have their abode.

And by Rock Giants we mean large monstrous stone creatures and not musical guitar legends such as Eric Clapton or Jimi Hendrix.

These creatures are known as the Jötnar and are much larger than any dwarf.
