In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the fomorian is a giant. Fomorians are hideously ugly and grossly deformed behemoths. They may be loosely derived from the Fomorians of Irish mythology.
Fomorians are usually found in caves, abandoned mine shafts, or like areas, decorated by the half-eaten remains of their last meal. The strongest fomorian rules over the rest, and women and children are treated no better than slaves. Violent acts are commonplace, and captives are usually tortured for their captors' amusement, then eaten.
Fomorians try to catch a foe off-guard and hit as hard as they can while they are unawares, since, unlike other giants, they do not throw boulders. They can be "convinced" to fight alongside a traveling party, but this companionship only lasts as long as the fomorian fears his dominator.
Fomorians primarily worship the god Karontor.
