Have you seen them? Aren't they fascinating? Except when they come charging in here to kill us, of course. But when they're safely outside trying to kill us, they're fascinating.
Talk more option tango.png Who are you talking about?
The jotun. Theirs is the most precipitous fall from grace of any society in history. Once the most powerful and advanced race on the continent, they devolved into the brutish violent creatures we see today.
Talk more option tango.png What happened?
After they conquered all their enemies, they turned on one another. Lust for knowledge gave way to bloodlust. They got meaner, dumber—and if the few artifacts we've found are any guide—a lot uglier too.
Talk more option tango.png Why is the Durmand Priory so interested in the jotun?
They once had magic and created enchanted monuments throughout the Shiverpeak Mountains, now lost to time. The jotun themselves have no memory of their location.
Talk more option tango.png So you're here trying to find the ancient jotun monuments?
Imagine what we might learn from them? What goes into creating such a dominant society? And what goes into destroying it? The secret to surviving the future may well lie in exhuming the past.
Talk end option tango.png I hope you're right.
Talk end option tango.png I see. See you around.
Talk end option tango.png I can understand your fascination.
Talk end option tango.png Interesting. Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png Sounds like they make better outdoor pets. Good-bye.


Historian Merry states that the Jotun's fall from grace may, in addition to the psychological changes, have had an affect to their physical appearance.
However, the few in-game models showing Jotun prior to their downfall (Elder Thruln, Jotun Spirit, Jotun Ghost) do not reflect this fact.
