Give Us Your Donkey!

One of my favorite lines over the years of running games falls squarely on the phrase spouted from the lead of a pair of Fomorian Giants that my players encountered while traveling on the road between adventures. The Giant’s boldly stepped from out of the woods each holding an uprooted tree. Pointing it at the party the Giant roared

” Wez Hungry, give us your donkey and youZ can get to live.”

The lines not all that great, and two Fomorian Giants are not even that stellar of a random encounter in the grand scheme of potential random encounters.

So why does this phrase stand out for me so vividly?

Because in this particular situation the Fomorian party was well beyond anything that my players could handle. Long story short after a few bold gestures on the players part and one of the uprooted tree bursting into flame. The end result was the party’s Paladin doing a stunning impersonation of a tent-peg. A pair of well-fed Giants and the party left intact minus one donkey.
