Knifey-Knifey

 

 

All of the above six knives look identical do they not? Indeed, that was how they were designed to appear. However, five of the six knives have retractable blades, and only one is real.

This is a specially designed set of knives for the game of knifey-knifey, a deadly gambling game banned in most areas of Allansia.

The six daggers lie on a table and two players afce each other. In turn you must select one of the daggers and stab yourself in the chest with it. If the dagger is real then death is certain (the steel is specially hardened steel from Frostholm and never fails to hit its mark). If the dagger is a dummy it must be returned to the table and shuffled in with the other five. The game continues until one of the players is dead. The survivor claims the prize that was at stake.

Not pleasant.
