Goliaths are a mountain dwelling race, most commonly from the mountains in the South East. Living as nomads in the mountain tops, they usually stay quite seperated from those dwelling on the ground and have instead adopted their own way of life.
Goliaths are one of the largest races in the civilized world of Nirn. Usually ranging at a height of 7’2”-8’0” tall, and weighing around 300lb., they are often considered the toughest race in Nirn, and usually take upon themselves roles that require more strength such as fighters and barbarians. Not only are they a raw mass of muscle, but they often tend to find themselves at peace with nature. Druids and Shamans are a common sight amongst the goliaths, and they prove to have a natural resistance towards dangerous natural elements, such as poison.
Their culture is often based on competition and will take any chance to prove their worth to others. Using their lifestyle in the mountains, they are able to use their muscular bodies for athletics and will more often than not be glad to show you how. A goliath will rarely turn down a challenge, be it a drinking game or a headcount in battle, and will push themselves to the limit to win. Although rare, if a goliath does face a challenge they are unable to meet, they will feel very dissapointed and might even punish themselves.
