Location

The Giant's Needle is a landmark within the Giant Halls in The Misty Mountains. [30.4S, 3.5E]

In the centre of the eastern section of Giant Halls, down a hollow, this menhir stands erect, visible from far and away. A few frost-giants are patrolling the hollow, but many more are roaming its perimeter and the region as such. While the purpose of the needle is unknown one can easily notice that it attracts the more vicious prowlers of the region, here are found anything but easy prey.

Curio: It is actually possible to visit the top of the needle by drinking from an Inn League Keg.

Lore

The Giant's Needle is simply a massive stone spire erected by the Giants of the Misty Mountains. No purpose has ever been found for it, nor is its construction all that remarkable given the size of its builders.
What is perhaps most remarkable about the Giant's Spire is that none of the giants has ever gotten around to knocking it down just for fun. It is this that leads scholars to believe that it does indeed have some meaning or purpose, but even the wise cannot guess at what that might be. — Deed text
