Gandoki! The badass Galeoth blood sport from TWP (correct me if I'm off about anything) I also don't know if this is really the right place to write this, it's a little misc, a little earwa, and a little roleplaying. But it starts with a short story.. My friend (also a bakker fan) and I decided to fuck around and try to play Gandoki with two paddleboard paddles on a dock and try to knock one another off. It ended up actually being really fun and competitive. Sometimes you'd make a move and screw yourself over. Sometimes you'd have the other person hung over the edge and you feel like a badass. I'm now sort of in the planning stage of making some custom Gandoki sticks so we can get a bit more competitive about it. We're kind of scared that if we actually tie our hands to them some wrists are gonna get broken, so, so far it's been just holding only, if you accidentally let go or move your hand, you just regrip. I recommend this to any bored souls, it was actually really addicting. Like I said, a dock is a really good place to do it since you can get the other person over the edge, but I'm sure you'd be fine on grass if you marked boundaries. Try it out, give me any feedback on how it went! I want to make it more novel accurate, but still safe. Maybe set up some tournaments or something. When I first read about Gandoki it sounded so cool, I just had to make it a reality!! And if anyone else has done this before, how did it work out for you?
"And I renounce..." He trailed, warred with errant pas≠sions. "I renounce my wife."
His eyes fell upon Esmenet, stricken upon the floor. My wife!
"Noooo," she wept and whispered. "Pleaaase, Akka..."
"As an adulteress," he continued, his voice cracking, "and a... a..."
His face a mask of nimil, he turned without leave, began walking back the way he came. The Men of the Tusk stared at him dumbstruck

This sounds awesome. Playing it on a dock is inspired.

Ha, yeah it just happened to be where we were at the time of the idea, worked out well. I just wish we had some more gandoki in the books so I could know some more in-depth rules, lore, etc. I'll ask Bakker if I ever get the chance, lol.

Maybe we'll just have to do a Gandoki World Championship 2018, instead of Zaudunyanicon.

Lol, do not go looking for that thread before you are done The Aspect-Emperor. But yes, it's a real thing. Or at least, we've pulled it off once last month.
