Stalwarts are a tall (7’) race of humanoids of unclear origin, being fairly similar to humans in appearance except with a certain tendency to ugliness. They are obsessed with proving their physical prowess and when encountering other humanoid species, they will challenge them to a high-stakes contest of physical prowess. This requires the PCs to designate one or more champions for opposed contests—2 of Acrobatics, 2 of Athletics, and 2 of Endurance. If the PCs win a majority, he will serve them for a month. If they fail, they must cough up half their money to him. If they refuse the contest or don’t pay up, he will attack. If they win the contest, they earn 800 XP as if they had defeated him.
