Giant Halls is an area within The Misty Mountains in the southern region.
South of High Crag, lies the Giant Halls which mainly is a wide bowl between the surrounding mountains, in itself containing hills and boulders, small compared to the towering ridges all around, yet large for everybody but its giant inhabitants. Giant Halls is reached only through three passages, all very well protected: Gabilazan in the west is protected by Dourhand dwarves, Rakhâs-bizar to the east is protected by a mix of everything, and in the north-east a narrow, winding pass which leads to Men Helch and the Southern High Pass beyond, very well patrolled by many frost-giants. For lone adventurers traveling to the Giant Halls, Rakhâs-bizar is the friendliest route. It is possible (though not easy) to avoid contact with giants and trolls in this pass; the same cannot be said for the other entrances.
The Giant Halls provide adventurers with the big game, in the true sense of the word. Some locations see high concentrations of one or the other, while the area as such see a mix of frost-giants and snow-trolls, giant snow-bears and mammoths, and occasionally rare beasts of any of the species prowling the icy widths. This is the place where brave hunters strain every nerve to protect their Fellowship, and where old friends may curse each others' impatience or foolishness.
The only available service is a Camp Site Fire with a Mustering Horn that is located very much at the centre of the area. Not even a resurrection ring is found within these halls, in spite of the many lethal inhabitants.
