Once upon a time before Humans, there was a world known as the Land of Giants and Elves. You can find it, if you dare, for it is nestled in the Western region of Kitsap County. However and due to the encroachment of the Human civilization, the Elves retreated back into their forest and the Giants stood nearby to guard the Land of Elves.

Begin your journey by traveling to the Land of Pendergast, atop a hill and North of Loxie. After traversing several roads, you will come upon the House of the King's Men. Be careful not to arouse their suspicions, for they too seek the Treasure of the Giants.

Upon your arrival at a blackened clearing, you will see many Giants watching over there domain. However, pay no attention to most of them, for they will do you no harm. The Giants you seek, six of them in all, are watching over their own lessor domain to the South and thinking of their Four lofty Goals.

One of these Six Giants, sporting an LbNA Tattoo, oversees the Land of Canine and points the way to their treasure. But beware, for it is said that this treasure is protected by Old Stumpy the Elder, a fiendish Elf by nature, who hides in the Lands of Elves far to the North.

Approach this Giant carefully and stand next to him. If he is bothered by your presence, walk 125 paces on a bearing of 280 Degrees, keeping the Land of Canines to the Southwest. When you have arrived at the Giant's Castle to the Northeast, you may stop and rest your wiery bones.

Once rested, continue for another 130 paces on a bearing of 290 Degrees towards Castle Green. From here you should see the Seven-Eyed Giant in the distance, sporting an LbNA Tattoo, and faces East to guard his Field of Dreams. Carefully approach him, turn to the West and you will see a small trail leading into the Land of Elves.

Upon entering the forest and down a narrow path, you will see the Tree of Many Arms. It has been said that for each of you she captures, she is rewarded a Ribbon. From here, continue Left for about 15 paces, until you encounter the Ancient Traveler and guards the trail behind him. Choose the Right path and continue deeper into the Land of Elves.

If you encounter the Gateway to Old Stumpy's home, step over it and continue for about 20 paces. If this is your lucky day, you may discover the Giant's Treasure hidden within the Elf's rotting old house on your Left. Keep this in mind, if he catches you, you may become a tasty treat for him and his clan.



Happy Hunting and may your journey be a safe one!
