Stillwater Giant Actually Exists!

Postby Deathmagus » Thu Sep 09, 2004 7:40 pm

Is there any way to actually convince the world that the Stillwater Giant exists? You can find him on the way to the pass over the mountains to Quintarra from Stillwater, but only after you accept the quest to catch "the Stillwater Giant" in the cave (actually just a bunny). Can you bring the skin of the real giant to anybody for anything?

The Stillwater Giant does exist and you can get his fur buit you don't need it. Just borrow the fake fuir or buy it from Parnell's Emporium of Wonders in Tarant. But I've never take the real fur to him. But if you can take it to Tarantian Editorial in Tarat and see if he will accept the story. I've never tried to do this.

Rather than deal with that crazy elf I just whack him on the head and take the amulet and give it to the hypothicary in Shrouded Hills and she gives me the location of Quintarra and Hardings Pass. This is a quest so you get points but the giant is not a quest so ignor it.

Yes, the Stillwater Giant exists. The crazy scientist was right, he IS a blue bunny. After you did all the stuff with the blue bunny you probably bumped into the real one, after attackin the blue bunny it turned into the giant, whose skin you probably took. Unfortunately, if you go to the Tarantian Zoological Society, they laugh at you. You CAN, however, sell it to that dude who sells the fake Pelt (H.T. Parnell's, I believe), who will buy the real one from you for, I can't remember somewhere around 200 gold or something. Sadly, there ends the potenially cool path of the Stillwater Giant =(.

When I was in Stillwater, the Elf who pointed me to Qintarra told me to talk to the guy named Hippington, in the far house. I went there, and he spewed greetings, but I never got the dialogue. (another bug?)

Anyway, on my way to Qintarra, I ran into this Blue Bunny, which - since I got paused by it in my travels, I immediately FireFlashed it (Magnus was *not* pleased!) and it turned into the Giant. But since I had used the fake pelt for the Elf, I had two pelts now.

In Tarant:
- The Zoological people thought it was a joke.
- The newspaper guy is done with me - I had no options to discuss it.
- The only thing I managed was to sell it back - I got $3000!

Try this on for size. Not only is the bastard real, but I used 'Dominate Will' on him and dragged him on foot all the way back to Stillwater.... yet no one even reacts :(

Yeah, so I'm late to the party. Still a great game.
