There was this one guy I play DND with that plays Gregory the abnormally large and violent and Gregory is exactly this character, but jollier
The origin of the vikings
Kind of like when Alexander came across the Gordian knot and instead of untying it just wiped out his sword and sawed through it.
castlevania did this
Bash the enemy with a rock!
anyone who ever made jokes about swords in stones made this
got any examples? i'd like to see more.
Then the wizard turned the huge barbarian into a mouse...
There ya go, sport
found it with better quality
Phrasing is important
I'd be more intimidated in a fight against a man waving around a boulder on a stick than just a measly little sword
Totally want to see a movie based on that very premise, but framed as a Disney-princess movie.
Dying land. Main character seems to be a duke's daughter. Camera follows her around for no good reason.
What appears as a secondary plotline: two fellows, one strong of mind, one strong of body, both strong of heart; they go to seek their fortunes in the next town over, where the duke resides.
Here the sword has lain for 200 years, ever since the last known true heir to the throne has presided.
(by true heir, I mean every royalty since has been gay and not had kids, so while there have been some kings and queens since, all that died off like 150 years ago)
T'was sunk in a stone by
the last true king, a
proclaiming, "Let none come after me, save the one who lifts this blade high over head in triumph, only then shall another king take my place."
By luck our fellows come upon the annual "festival"
(a -----show to be honest, but who can blame the small town in what is ultimately a symbol of their failure to produce someone worthy of ruling)
(insert masturbatory joke here)
. The strong of mind tries first and enquires to the official what the rules are. The official points out that the rules are engraved on the rock. As the strong of body moves to be next in line, the strong of mind whispers in his ear, Lift the stone and sword, like a boar on a pike.
And to everyone's shock, he does. At that very moment, a bear charges into the plaza about to eat several children, but the new king steps forward and in one swing decapitates the bear.
Bears make for good stew.
All of this is seen through the eyes of the duchess, or sufficiently so, that we think it's a disney princess movie through all of the trailers.
He continues using his sword stone club to beat back the kingdom's evils, gradually wearing away the stone. I the end, he gets the duchess because she's the only one of noble blood who isn't a thot.
"In the end he gets the duchess because she's the only one who isn't a thot" ay smart move. It's even better that he's just beating everyone with the makeshift club. Haha i love the modern twists you put into this short story.
I love it, saving for later.
I thought about that ever since i saw the master sword in ocarina of time.
Cant someone just mine around the sword and pull it out that way? Or even chisel the rock surrounding the sword?
Is there some magic in place to stop your from chiseling the rock away?
Is that an AU where a random guy becomes king because he slams a huge chisel in the rock?
It's actually worded something like 'He who draws the sword from the stone', which precludes things like lifting the rock or chiselling it out, or removing it with other means or trickery really.
So what if you do just bust it out of the rock? Does the country fall into chaos with no king since no one drew the sword from the stone?
Presumably they find a wizard to reset the sword, and lynch the vandal.
