Well, technically speaking, there were giants in Rune, the Ice giants. I only discovered them in the Steam version though, the disc version of the game didn’t have any. I could see the reason why they’ve been removed, they were kinda… a “bit” overpowered. As for the dark warriors, i’m afraid i don’t even know what you mean by that. In Rune there were dark vikings who served Conrack. Dwarves i loved and hated at the same time because of their auto aim and the ability to jump attack, sending the player flying across half a map.
