"For whatever reason, this is what I feel the worst about doing: I had a giant spawn near my Falkreath house during my second to last playthrough. Instead of killing him, I named him Roger and went out of my way to not aggro him when I was outside. Whenever I would get home from a week's worth of adventuring, Roger was always there to greet me with an arm wave and club shake. I miss Roger.On the other hand, that sweet giant camp swag." - Brothdw
