>Offer to step on the Blefuscu soldiers for them
> Ask information about Blefuscu.
“Hey, I could go over and step on a few of those soldiers for you guys.”
The reserves look between each other. “That would be something...”
“What’s up with these Blefuscu people anyway?”
“Oh well, their leader is this fellow by the name of Reely Regrane, who sought to dismantle the Blefuscu royal monarchy. He did so through a little bit of fire and blood, however. He ends up establishing a more democratic electorate, and, surprise surprise, the people put him up as the president of Blefuscu.”
“He claims that our royal family ought to step down, give power to the people. Our King, Gregor, didn’t want to, and the people here, well, we don’t want our King and his kids to get killed in no revolt. But Mr. Regrane wanted death to all tyrants. So, now, Lilliput and Blefuscu, they’re at war. Just how it goes, I suppose.”

> Ask them their favorite food.
> Ask about the strange plant you found the island.
>Ask about King Gregor. Is he nice?
>Ask more about the war
"What's your favorite food?"
The reserves all chat amongst themselves before turning back. The lead one says, "Chicken fingers."
You almost ask about the vegetation again, before realizing you already asked about it.
"How's King Gregor?"
"Nice enough. A bit of a drunk, but he builds orphanages, so..." The lead reserve wavers his hand in neutrality.
"Tell me more about the war."
"It's been mostly a sea war, thank god. A few spies are in our midst, we think, but nothing ground-breaking yet. Our forces are about even, and there have been four battles fought. We won two, they won two."
> So they use boats, huh? Suggest a way to quickly capsize boats with various tools of the trade. Your handyman skills will surely come in handy here.
Tell them to deal with the spies before they warn the Blefuscu about you.

>Ask who they think the spies are.
>Ask why they can't just agree to separate from each other.
As a handyman, you can come up with easier ways to capsize boats I guess?
“What if I like just flipped them over?”
The reserves shrug.
“We should deal with the spies, who do you think they are?”
“Well, us guys here think that the spies are these three fellas working with Gregor, as well as Mr. Davidson.”
Davidson, the man in your pocket.
“Why can’t you just separate from each other?”
“I don’t know man, I’m just a soldier.”
>Take Davidson out of your pocket and hang him upside down to interrogate him
Tell him that you'll throw him as high as you can if you get the feeling he is lying
You pull the struggling little sir out of your pocket, and hold him up, dangling, in front of your face. His cruder holding clearly makes him fidgety and anxious.
“Tell me all that you know or I’ll toss you up as high as I can.”
The thought of it causes Davidson’s eyes to turn to dinner plates in fright, and he passes unconscious of fear.
Might have hit him with a little much.
Below you, a reserve says to the lead, “M’lord, it’s nearly dusk, we ought to ride back so we can arrive at the city before it gets dark.”
The lead reserve nods his head. “But what of the Giant?”
Hey! That’s you!

>Put Davidson down sheepishly and apologize again. Offer to come with them.
> Ask for directions to the city.
> Ask him about the year 1903.
>”Do you have weapons for someone my size?”
> Suggest a simple spear and shield be made. Maybe a slingshot if it's possible.
You feel very poor all of the sudden, as you see poor limp Davidson. You set him down on the beach below.
The lead reserve shrugs. “Not my problem. We think he’s a spy anyhow.”
“Alright... hey, how do I get to Lilliput anyhow?”
“Oh, well, uh, just down the Great-Road behind those trees.”
The reserves walk over to the little trees, and enter under them. As you try to track the sound of their footsteps, you see them under a small clearing in the trees, and indeed you see there is a brick path that the reserves are on.
“Say, fellas, what do you know about the year 1903?”
“Um, so what about weapons? Do you think you guys could make something my size? Like a spear, or a shield? Maybe a slingshot?”
“You know, that might be a good idea. Maybe we could start making something for you, miss.”
The lead reserve looks around at his fellow reserves. “How about it fellas? Whoever makes the large misses the best weapon gets a few golden coin!”
The reserves mutter in approval.
As the reserves head down the path, you decide to walk on past them to get to the city faster.
As you see a large capital city in the distance, you hear behind you, a little person, powerwalking, attempting to be quiet, and clearly not trying to catch up, but instead trying to keep pace with you. What do you do?
>Wonder who this strange tiny one is. Pretend he doesn't exist so you can study him.
> Stop them in their tracks ask them why.
>Turn around and step on him
