Smash Club

The Smash Club is the closest thing to a guild that the barbarians of Valwyr have. Even calling it a “club” is a bit of an overstatement — what it really is is an annual gathering of barbarians from the various tribes throughout Valwyr. They get together in Gardeg and perform feats of strength, basically a competition, and the winner gets to send an ambassador to speak for all the tribes to Valwyria. Whomever comes in second place sends an ambassador to Castelin, and third place gets a live pig. Since the live pig is actually more desirable than becoming an ambassador, the tribes intentionally try to get to third place, which makes the games extremely compelling to watch.

Of all the events I’ve seen in Valwyr, the Smash Club is by far the most entertaining. When asked why they don’t just make getting the pig the first place prize, every barbarian I spoke to had the same response: “Tradition.”
