Farmer Maggot vs. Farmer Giles of Ham Can't Post

Two mighty wills, four calloused hands, and only one victor. Who shall it be?!


"So knights are mythical!" said the younger and less experienced dragons. "We always thought so."

Haha... [In reply to] Can't Post

No, but his dog Garm might have been! He was rather a roving rascal, wasn't he? Wink

So, let's suppose Garm went off a-walking one day, stumbled into Maggot's prized Mushroom field, was discovered by Grip, Wolf, and Fang who reported the intrusion to their master, Maggot visits the owner of the wayward dog with pitchfork in hand and diabolic curses in mind ("you'll know the devil when I'm done with you!"), and Giles walks out his front door to meet him with Blunderbuss in hand. Who wins?

(Oh, and both farmers have their respective dogs present.)

Giles has the distinct advantage of size and weapons...blunderbuss and Tailbiter sword.

Giles wins.
