Coming to life as a chunk of stone, Tiny's origins are a mystery on which he continually speculates. He is a Stone Giant now, but what did he used to be? A splinter broken from a Golem's heel? A shard swept from a gargoyle-sculptor's workshop? A fragment of the Oracular Visage of Garthos? A deep curiosity drives him, and he travels the world tirelessly seeking his origins, his parentage, his people. As he roams, he gathers weight and size; the forces that weather lesser rocks, instead cause Tiny to grow and ever grow.

General Strategy[edit]

Growing to tremendous size and strength as the battle progresses, Tiny's power can quickly become terrifying. He tosses heroes and creeps at his enemies, or stuns them beneath an avalanche. Should he gather his full strength, he can demolish the enemy's base with ease.
