Fall back to Chiyo, utilize countermeasures.

Yeah, I'd say fall back to Chiyo but for two things: we don't know if we can make it, either with the neurotoxin or the cure; and, being about to be unexpectedly cured of paralysis, if they do find us, we can fake them out and surprise them.

You’re not sure how one talks to a voice inside your head, but you try nodding your head and saying yes out loud, just to be sure.

Affirmative. Deploying countermeasures, Returning to standby mode.


Your neck isn’t stinging as bad anymore, and your head isn’t quite as foggy. You realize that you had better start falling back towards the wagon before the third spider arrives. Running away from a fight is not the bravest of things to do, but it may well be the smartest thing. As you turn to move, you become aware of the weight on your shoulder. Oh yes, the strange bird.

It’s staring at you in a funny way. Up close, it triggers and old memory. Something from before the third age. Something ancient. The word is “Pkunk”, but you aren’t quite sure what that means. The bird chirps happily, and rubs its beak against you. Almost as if it had heard your thought and enjoyed it. Strange. But this is no time for contemplation.

As you approach the wagon you realize that there is quite a lot of noise coming from that direction. Your head is still a bit dizzy and you don’t realize that those are the sounds of battle until you’ve stepped out onto the road.

Four Ilwrath males lie disembodied around the wagon, and a fifth is currently being squashed under the donkey’s legs. You can’t help but smile at that, the donkey is a bastard but when push comes to shove it is your bastard. A larger Ilwrath female lies dead behind the wagon as well, head severed from her shoulders. Chiyo is truly a warrior to have accomplished this. But against such a large host, not even she has prevailed. A large crimson female has managed to pierce her shoulder with a spear, trapping her against the wagon. The spider is staying back and simply leaning on the spear, waiting for her to tire before moving in for the kill.

What now?

I believe our state is not the best for ranged, but we are collected enough for mellee. I think we should lower the bird to the ground, signal it to be quiet, then sneak on the last Ilwrath male from the back, signal Chiyo to make some noise as distraction and then approach and pierce the spider's head with our sword.

We definitely want to have the element of surprise. It may not be the most honorable way to fight, but it certainly increases our chances for victory; with a foggy head we're at more of a disadvantage than we would already be fighting a full size Ilwrath female.

Alvarin's plan makes some sense, but may be too elaborate. But we should definitely try to get the jump on her, and hopefully make a lethal strike before she realizes we're attacking.

Let's go throw the Pkunk into the Ilwrath!

No, just kidding.

We should do what Alvarin just said.

Alvarin's plan, minus getting the specific distraction from Chiyo. Perhaps another thrown rock distraction?
