The destruction of the Ice Queen's fortress during the Troubles created a huge mound of scattered stones. The Ice Queen had used the power of the Crystal of Earth in an attempt to stop the Kingdom armies. The ground was torn and rent for miles around.
After the war, Elle bel-Shanya returned to the site of the battle in company with the Stone Giant Uhalo. There, Elle and Uhalo began to shape the heavy stones. Over the years that followed, more and more Stone Giants slipped down from the Grimwall mountains to settle in the new City of Giants - Elleton.
The city has only a small human community. Elle serves as the self-assigned protector of the city, meeting threats with her trained War Griffons and stealthy Giant allies. Outsiders are rarely welcomed, though occasional trade with trusted merchants is conducted.
