        For me, MGF would be as follows:

        The heroic PC's manage to uncover the mysteries of the Cradle
and raise it. Cwim, still bearing some vestiges of his original
Giantish nature is "called" to it, making a straight line for it
(maybe stomping a village or two on the way). Arriving there, Cwim
keeps trying to climb aboard, ready to go home. The Cradle's magics,
however, are expecting a Giant baby, not a three-bodied Chaotic
montrosity. The Cradle "rejects" Cwim.

        I see a great scene with Cwim trying to fight his way into the
Cradle, the Cradle's magics and defenses trying to keep Cwim out, and
the PC's caught in the middle...
