    You have become transformed into a female frost giant. You have no magical powers beyond those of a baseline frost giant. You were originally a normal human male from modern-day earth surfing 4chan.

    "If there is anything I might do to prove myself, I'll be glad to try. If not, I'll sit right here, and take my chances with the horsemen. If there's any way to call a truce with them, you should tell me now, because if there IS a battle, I do not intend to lose."

    The elder mulls this over for a minute or two. The watching peasants shift aimlessly, ready to run at a moment's notice. You get the sense that at least one of them just wanted to see the old man get flattened.

    "Giant, there is no way for you or I to stop the Lord's men from waging war. They will not hesitate to assault you, and break you, no matter your words or actions. You are their enemy, until they are informed otherwise, by one of higher status than I. I advise you to retreat hastily, and I promise to do my best to misdirect the horsemen. If you are who you claim to be, you will return, unarmed, in three days. That is all."

    He turns, and marches back, shaking with fright. Though his years have been long, he has never faced a Giant, nor seen another do so and live. This story will doubtless be told throughout the land for decades after you depart.

    Also, attempting to fashion less threatening clothes from the skins of the animals we've consumed might not be bad, disarming the traps, etc. Can't be half-assed about this if we wish to seriously treat with these guys.

    You agree to return in three days, without your weapons. Standing quickly, you grab the flagpole, extract it from the ground, and take up your weapons. The elder walks a little bit faster, but does not turn. The remaining peasants run, abandoning their leader like cowards. With no further words, you head back into the woods, and not a moment too soon. Just as you disappear into the tall trees, you hear the sound of hoofbeats.

    Bounding over boulders and fallen logs like some sort of insane, 2,000 pound deer, you escape, making no louder noise than the rustling of the branches as you dash past. It takes you less than two hours to reach your cave, and by then, you are out of breath, a rarity for your race. You gulp down a massive quantity of water and sit down, thankful that this crazy place hasn't killed you yet.

    On the other hand, you're still a giant blue chick.

    The only downside I see to this is that making cloths out of the animal skins without tanning them (takes a bit more than 3 days if you have no idea what you're doing) is rather uncomfortable, that and it might tip them off that we were killing animals on their land.

    You currently have no idea what is or is not lawful, but it would take an awful lot of pelts to replace your skirt, and you have nothing to stitch them together with.

    The stream's water is quite clean, and even if it wasn't, you're a Frost Giant. It takes quite a bit more than muddy, parasite-infested drink to faze you. Unfortunately, the stream contains few fish of a size necessary to sustain you, though you are able to catch them by laying your hands beneath the water, waiting for some to swim over, and lifting them out.

    Timeskip progressing with that assumption.

    It has been three days. Evidently, the elder was successful in diverting the horsemen, because you are uninjured and very bored. You passed the time by careful exploration and scavenging, eating sparingly and consuming recently-dead animals where possible, instead of hunting. You washed as best you could in the shallow stream, getting as much of the dirt off of yourself and your clothes as you could manage. In the case of your feet, that matters little, but at least when the humans look at your hair they won't expect a stream of spiders to come pouring out. Probably.

    Just in case you're going to be betrayed by the nice old man, the battleaxe and shortsword are coming with you, and they'll stay just inside the forest so you can get to them quickly without needlessly offending anyone by wearing them.

    In feudalism, the trees belong to either the lord or the king (depending on whether the lord owns the land or is just leasing it from the king); knocking them down without permission would be stealing from him.

    The walk to the town takes little time, now that you've been over the route and know the best path. Just in case there are sentries posted, you set your battleaxe and shortsword down a little ways from the forest border, in an inconspicuous place where a small mound of dirt will arouse no suspiction. Without a watch, you have no way of knowing what time it is, but you did your best to make it here at just past dawn, as before.

    Peering through the thinning foliage, you see what must be every peasant in the villiage grouped together, standing watch over the place where they first saw you. The elder you spoke with is at their head, flanked by two others nearly as old as him. The three of them are wearing purple bands against their chests. Ceremonial, you guess.

    You step out of the forest.

    "Giant!" the elder shouts, "You have kept your word!"

    The peasants are clearly amazed at the change. You did your best to replace the canvas covering, and, lacking the omnipresent smudges and dried mud that once endowed your skin and hair, you look the picture of cleanliness (by medieval standards).

    The three old ones step forward. Now would be the time to say whatever you want to say, or present your gift.

    You bow to them, and reply:

    "Greetings, and thank you for meeting with me. I still wish to find the means to return to human form, but in the meantime, I would appreciate it if you could tell me of this kingdom's laws."

    The prospect of a law-abiding Frost Giant is clearly amusing, for the peasants are alternately dumbstruck and quietly chuckling. The elders, obviously, take you seriously.

    "I will be glad to tell you all I know," the first one says, "But there is a matter we must first attend to."

    The third elder removes a scrap of parchment from his tunic pocket.

    "What we have here," the first continues, "Is a bind of alliance. In the past, it has served to unify the common people against their common enemy. Today, we offer it to you, Giant, as a gesture of our faith in you."

    "You see," the second interjects, "Though you had not known this, we do not much like Lord Oland."

    This statement is greeted with a rousing cry from the rest of the peasants, even the children.

    The third raises his hand. "You must understand this, Giant. We are at our end. We are destitute, and defenseless. Were you to end our lives at this moment, we would not have quite so far as you think to fall. This is our chance, our leap of faith. And we take it gladly."

    The peasants all nod. In three days you have gone from marauding monster to exalted (potential) savior. If only you could sense magic, you are sure you could feel it here. Or is that only your modern cynicism?

You'll have no way of knowing if this is true or not until and unless you actually learn spells, and if your form is changed back to human before you do, it won't matter anyway.

    Then we need a modern sounding name, it fits seeing as we claimed to come from a far-off land, and what's further off than an entirely different time/dimension?

    Back on topic, I say we accept their offer, but we need to discuss it a bit more first. Gather the data, calculate the odds. This could be very good or very bad. Would they be able to assist us with better armor or better weapons than we already have? What are the lord's forces like? Are they as loyal as the villagers or payed well enough to fight to the death?

    I'm guessing that since he conscripts men to his army, they might be a bit disgruntled and maybe easily swayed by the sight of a very angry, very large blue woman running at them with weapons drawn, especially if we can pull off another tower-toppling like stunt with the villagers backing us up.

    You express your concerns, and the elders nod, not in the least bit surprised. In fact, they seem reassured at your level head.

    "You misunderstand, Giant, or you take our intentions too far. We are not so senile as to expect a single of your kind and several farmers to free us and others from tyranny. What we are asking for is your assistance, and your promise of such, as you have asked for our help in turn," the first one says.

    "Consider," the second continues, "The immensity of your size and strength, that you could bend the Lord's tower with a single blow. You could till all our fields in a single night, and build a dozen houses, besides."

    "An exaggeration," the third chastises him.

    "Perhaps," the first replies, "But our point is seen. We will not ignore your power. And if, as we believe, you share our meager, human concerns, you will not reject us."

    "You are a strange one, Giant. Merciful, kind, and wise besides. I would have you know that there are places known only to us, far from the prying eyes of the Lord's men. In times past, it has hidden our gold, and our children, but it is empty, for we are blessed no more."

    He sighs. There is a great pain in his eyes. "We will not force you. If you would prefer to resume your travels, we would be no worse off. This is an offer, nothing more. If you are averse, for any reason, we will forget your presence, and the Lord will hear no further of you from us."

    The third elder holds up the parchment for you to read. You edge closer, sitting down and bending your neck so that you can see the words. The script is ornate, resembling calligraphy more than any of the writing you're familiar with, though you can read the words as if they were English. The spelling and grammar are archaic, but you get the gist of it.

    Essentially, it says that the signers of the contract are bound to each other's mutual defense and assistance, to share each other's welfare as if the two were families bound by marriage. At the end, it stipulates that the contract is dissolved upon renouncement by either party, or by action in breach of the contract.

    The second elder offers to sign it for you, seeing as your fingers could not possibly grip the reed without crushing it or allowing it to slip.

    "You can sign for me," you tell the old man.

    The peasants are immediately ecstatic, though the elders are rather more reserved. As the second moves to sign, he realizes that he doesn't know your name, and says as much.

    "I am Maya Terrasdottir," you reply, wondering where you pulled it from. It seems to suit you, in any case.

    He signs with a reddish ink, spelling your chosen name a bit oddly, though that's excuseable. These three are probably the only ones in the village who can read and write, and you're not about to call him on it. The first elder places his hands on yours, drawing attention to the almost comical difference in size.

    "Thank you, Maya. We have been waiting for one such as you for a great while."

    You smile, and put your right hand over his, though you don't actually touch it, for fear of hurting him unintentionally.

    "What comes after this?" you ask good-naturedly.

    He laughs. "The feast, of course! We will answer any question you may have, but it is customary to do so over supper." He pauses. "Or, in this case, breakfast."

    The peasants begin to disperse. The women and children head toward a long, sturdy structure the elders identify as the Hall, the communal building in which nearly everything of interest takes place. It is glaringly obvious that you will be sitting outside.

    "I hope you realize how much I eat."

    The elders chuckle softly as they lead your massive form into the town center.

    "Don't worry. We have enough, at least for now. And we plan to have more shortly." The second one jabs you in the leg with his elbow, grinning.

    "It isn't considered poaching, is it?" you ask.

    "Not here," the first replies, shrugging, "The Lord's realm is extensive, and his visits here infrequent. He has not hunted these lands for many years, and he cares not for that which we take from it. Since you are our ally, you are granted the same courtesy, at least as far as the letter of the law."

    The four of you stop in front of the hall. The front doors are quite large, hewn from oak and adorned with runes, but you would utterly destroy them if you attempted to enter, even crawling on hands and knees. You notice that a large amount of hay has spread about this area, and covered with empty sacks.

    "I'm afraid this is the current limit of our hospitality," the third elder explains, "For we have no chair or table in your size, nor had we the time to fashion one, even in three days. Such is our sad state."

    "It's perfectly fine," you tell them, "I sleep on rocks, you know."

    This doesn't seem to reassure them much. They enter the hall, telling you they'll be a moment. You peer inside, seeing a long, gnarled wooden table with many stools on either side, no two alike.

    For meat, go with reindeer. They're not quite as smart, and therefore less likely to make the "every time we come here they kill some of us" connection.

    You can see the elders inside, speaking with a large, burly man wearing leather armor. He laughs heartily at something they said, and ducks into the back rooms of the hall for a moment. He returns with several men who match his size, all of which would put a modern lumberjack to shame. They begin to gather up the stools, piling them on top of their shoulders in precarious stacks that they somehow manage to keep upright. One by one, they exit the hall, spreading the stools in an arc around you as you sit cross-legged on the hay.

    "We would not dare leave our ally sitting out while we dine in comfort, would we?" the second elder asks you. You nod politely in response, and he laughs.

    All around you the peasants are returning from their houses, bringing with them the fruits of their labor. A little bit of meat, a bit of bread, a pot of soup stretched thin, a piece of cheese rationed for weeks. Though these simple folk are on their last breath, they bring all they have to celebrate your presence, with glad hearts. The 'lumberjacks', after setting up the stools, head back inside, and return a short while later with two boars, which are so large that even those heavily muscled men cannot carry them by themselves. In short order, they are set in front of you, and the men look at you expectantly.

    We take a portion of what everyone else is eating, including some of the boar.

    The rest of the boar gets added to the general pot.

    We're still showing our gratitude for their hospitality, while symbolically tying ourselves more tightly to the villagers.

    "Are there any customs I should know about?" you ask the elders, as the townspeople gather their food just behind the stools.

    "Many, but none of importance," the first replies," We have done nothing of this kind since I was a small child, thus both of our actions will dictate the new custom."

    "Then, this will not offend you."

    You take one of the boars in your hands, easily removing its legs, and placing them on the ground. You do the same with the other. This does not seem to alarm anyone in the slightest, as they are quite familiar with butchery and tanning, and are already aware of your strength. They seem more puzzled than anything else.

    "We are bound now. I will not eat more than I need."

    Two of the old ones draw back in surprise, as do most of the peasants. The first, however, being the one who spoke to you at the beginning of it all, and the one who knows you best, merely sighs, and throws up his hands.

    "Who are we to question the generosity of our ally?" he shouts, as everyone turns to look at him, "We have given freely, and she has given back to us. Such is our right."

    He is greeted with nods of understanding, and a mighty "SO SAYS HE" from the 'lumberjacks'. Everyone sits to eat, as you requisition a blade with which to partition the remainder of the boar.

    I stand corrected. But still, magic. Frost Giants are immune to cold, have superb night vision, are vulnerable to fire, and don't need to eat and drink as much as they should. Also, they are not crushed by their own weight, can balance just fine, and can jump without snapping their femurs. Square Cube Law is so much piss to fantasy.

    Food requirements scale with volume, which scales as the cube. Twice the size, 8 times the food required. Three times the size, 27 times the food required.

    That said, two boars is perhaps somewhat excessive; I doubt someone's going to eat an eighth of a boar in one sitting. A few legs are probably closer; most people would only eat a few slices of it in one sitting. I doubt we'll be able to finish one boar off.

    So yeah, thank them for their generosity but then jokingly state that while you do eat a lot, you don't need to eat quite THAT much.

    The average human will feel full after about two liters. Cube that with triple size, and we're looking at a vaguely 50 liter stomach. But, bear in mind we're a woman now. We won't want so much Boar. Probably just some greens with a splash of hollandaise.

    The feast begins. You slice the boars into manageable chunks, or at least you try your best with your oversized digits, and reserve the good meat for the peasants. Being a Frost Giant, you can eat animals whole, bones and all, with no trouble at all. You have adjusted to your new anatomy well, though the fact that you now actually enjoy eating raw guts and entire animals still disturbs you a bit. The peasants are clearly grateful for your consideration, thought they do their best to conceal it. Even when they're starving, they refuse to show weakness. Admirable.

    There can't be more than a hundred of them, all together, including the children and elderly. The place in which they live is a run-down dump by the standards of your world, or, more appropriately, your nation, but they seem perfectly happy at this moment. Born and raised in this muddy pit, seeing nothing better... How could they understand the comparison? All that matters to them is that right now, they eat with a giant. A giant that is their friend, their newly-made companion and ally. Things are looking up, as they say.

    You finish quickly, making sure you eat no more than your equal share. One of the big men strikes up a conversation about speed and strength. He claims that he could outrun you when he was younger, and the others call him on it. With a wild look in his eyes he regales you and the others with tales of his exploits, which are matched and exceeded by those of his friends in turn. By the end of it, one of the boys has gotten involved as well, and the stories are so outrageous that the child (not older than 8) professes to have bested seventeen monks with his hands tied to his feet and his head stuck in an iron pot, and to have hefted a bull over his shoulder and throne it over the horizon, only to have it land beside him after it crossed the world.

    You think you're going to like these people.

    Speaking of garments, now that we have a town full of minio- uh, allies, perhaps they can make us some good clothing. If we, y'know, kill enough deer or wolves or whatever to make the necessary leather and fur. They'll have much better manual dexterity than us, not to mention actual tanning technology.

    If there's alcohol flowing (and given that this is a medieval village, and the water probably isn't safe to drink, it probably is), start flirting with the local women if any of them are at least moderately attractive.

    The scale factor's 16.5, so if a normal human's full after about 2 liters, we'd be full after about 33. That's probably a good leg of boar.
