Do You Even Lift, Hero?
You rub your hands together in preparation for a test of raw strength. It's like those hammer things and the fair, except the hammer is your fists and instead of a strength-o-meter, it's just a stack of giant blocks of ice. So, really, exactly the same.

If you ?:

You haul at the blocks with clearly superhuman strength, clearing the way for your future progress.

  • Lifts 2 blocks
Otherwise:

You haul and haul and haul at the blocks. They don't move that much, but they're probably at least a little out of alignment.
