The most popular game in the Stone pits two (likely drunk) combatants against each other above the festering Pit. A wooden plank is laid across the Pit, and the two competitors have their hands tied behind their backs. They then face off upon the plank, starting at opposite ends.
The goal of the game is simple. The first one into the Pit loses. Of course, without hands the contest becomes a rather comical exchange of kicks, body checks, and foot stomps. With a few tankards of ale in each competitor, fights more often than not end with both combatants plummeting into the Pit.
If anyone is brave, foolish, or drunk enough to play Giant’s Feet, the game runs:
Each round, a competitor makes an opposed Strength check and an opposed Dexterity check. Regardless of success or failure, if either check result is less than 10, that combatant falls into the Pit and loses. A combatant who succeeds at both checks wins, and the foe plummets into the Pit. If both competitors succeed at the same number of checks, the fight is a draw and the competitors make another round of checks.
Giant’s Feet is a popular game with the Stone’s customers, and tournaments are a popular diversion. Spectators bet on matches, and an adventurer who wins a few games quickly develops a reputation that earns him or her challenges from roughnecks and invitations to tournaments.
