Jofgried is a titan ruin of the Harongrand plateau. Its builders were descendants of stone giants and earth archons that had served under Geb in the Creation War (1486 DE - 8777 DE).

In less than a century from its founding in 8786 GE, it had grown into a bustling independent city-state. Jofgried's giants and minions often battled with those of Onvargard. In the Demon Spawn War (8972 GE - 9493 GE), the giants of both of these two plateaus battled Demogorgon's armies as they pushed up the plains towards the Great Expanse. Highly defensible, the plateau cost the demons many. They ended up blockading the place while their armies marched through the grasslands flanked by the two great plateaus. A decade later, this decision to bypass an entrenched enemy proved their undoing when Avandra's armies began pushing the demons back from the Great Expanse. The giants of Jofgried and Kolmgar, aided by Geb and his army (allies of the Quara'tun Covenant), commenced attacks on the enemy flanks. Several months later they were joined by an air wing of dragons led by Bahamut. These battles across the Tamoroc plain lasted a year. They ended with the loss of three of demon armies. Demogorgon was everywhere in the fighting. In one of the battles, later to be named Gebs Near Fall, the demon lord nearly decapitated Geb. He was only saved when Bahamut arrived and to took the demon lord's attention off a dying Geb. Avandra healed Geb, and then with a team of mammoth, dragged him from danger. After the battle was won, stone giants constructed an elaborate memorial in Jofgried depicting carved episodes of the battle.

In the Horgon Era, Jofgried fell to the armies of Gadstill Dynasty. It remained a vassal state of Gadstill Dynasty for more than a millennia. When Gadstill Dynasty weakened from over-expansion, the southern holds of Harongrand and Onvargard rebelled. The slave uprisings left Jofgried a ruin. A small population of stone giants lived on in the area into the First Epoch. They were eventually wiped out by marauding Jara.

One of the more visited areas of this ruin is the Jofgried Titan Forge. The Jara of Tamoroc and the Tungesti of Grern, have long used this forge in the making of great weapons.
