Depth giants prove their worth to their clan by going out on dangerous expeditions into the open ocean. The most common rite of passage is to go out and hunt an incredibly dangerous sea beast. In fact, legends tell of an old king who dared to challenge a kraken. However, for those who wish to make their name remembered throughout giant history, they will embark on a trench walk. As the name implies, it involves going to an unfathomably deep trench in the remote part of the sea, and crossing it, from one end to the other. The darkness, the pressure, and whatever nightmarish creatures lurk down, are all a part of the challenge. Should the giant succeed and return to the clan, they will earn the title of Trench Walker, and will be granted high rank for as long as they live. The Trench Walk has a unique effect on depth giants who survive. The innate magic and unique physiology of depth giants cause their body to rapidly grow and evolve, which unlocks new which are unattainable for those who do not take the trek.
