The difficulty is equal to your Polythremean Disposition: level. The above is the level for A Horrendous Cravat.



There are no weapons in this ring; wrestling is the only sanctioned form of combat. The Clay Man presiding over the fights assigns you to battle an entire clothes-colony – perhaps they […] confuse your various components for individual entities. […]

Description summary:
Part of the description varies based on your Fighting Style.

1 - The School of Hard KnocksVictory is a simple matter of tearing and scratching at the fabric while the Officious Clay Man isn't looking.
2 - The Forms of the Tomb-ColoniesTo emerge victorious, you call to mind the techniques of the Silken Swords, tomb-colonists who fight in duels "to the unravelling of their bandages."
3 - The Adventuress' Correspondence CourseYou recall to mind the Presbyterate Adventuress' advice on wrestling constricting snakes, which serves you well in fighting against hosiery.
100 - Your own amalgam of a thousand different traditionsBattling against shoes and scarves is rather untrodden territory – it is fortunate then that you have invented so many of your own fighting techniques.
