You are Blooming Dandelion, but are generally known by your street name; Meepis. You, like apparently many others, came in search of a mythical amulet said to grant incredible power, wealth or knowledge.

For you, you hope it grants great wealth! You’ve always had to scrap by life due to your unpredictable and disorderly attitude, you’ve been exiled and kicked from villages, inns, even bathrooms… so tis’ not like the dungeon is going to deter you one bit. You’re no stranger to adversity, and after a looong expedition to the mythical place that houses this artifact.

You finally walk into the dungeon. There is a door in front of you. The trip was long and arduous so you currently lack a bit of self motivation however.
What do now?

First things, there’s 2 unassuming rocks on your left and right, you notice that this place is pretty dirty with its soil, it feels rather nice on your vines but it creates some annoying dirt particles if you’re to be hasty.

Trying as hard to avoid traps you tiptoe around the corners of the room carefully grabbing all the walls that you can, when you reach the door, you put your head next to it… to hear some muffled but noticeably savage growls, there’s something outside, and it sounds VERY hungry.

Before getting time to think more about that situation you keep on grabbing the walls when… the wall moves mechanically to the side! You’ve discovered a hidden passage!

Happy with your performance you peppily cross down the narrow path and open up slowly to see in your peripheral four dog things glaring and growling at a small passage, if you recall those are Jackals?

That growl is the same as the one you heard through the door, they clearly are waiting to ambush anyone unfortunate enough to enter through the main entrance. To your left there’s some money laying on the floor as well as a potion with some green substance, an odd looking plant and a very small crevice that you think you could fit into with some hefty trouble.

You didn’t really pay it much mind, but taking another glance at the plant, this guy’s anthers are sticking out in plain sight… gross.

He kind of reminds you of cannabis. But, from pure appearances you can’t really tell what type of effect the pollen that can come out of him would have, if any. A strong physical reaction might stimulate him or cause him to push it out as defense but you wonder if you should meddle.

…Mom’s baffling transmutation powers are doubtful to say the least, no way she actually did this all natural! Should mom pull something funny you WON’T hesitate to STAB her in her fat face. Though you feel at first that that’s a bit extreme even for you, she’s just showing off to you so she’s asking for it. Hmph, sorry mom but you’ve got business here!

“SORRY mom I’ve got to findget this crazy magical amulet that can grante me anything i want and so, and, so, so yeah. Bye catch you later.” you make a lot of unnecessary vine motions while saying this.

Mom contorts backwards hearing this. “TREE , IF NOT, FOX, IF TREE, DIRTFOX” she screeches in her loud voice. Whatever mom. You casually bump your face into the wall while walking away. Didn't hurt one bit.

Opening your eyes again, things seem… a little less interesting.

A bat is eerily close to you. When did that happen? You guess your mom is gone?

You wiggle your arms in a hypnotizing fashion, the rattlesnake jolts back at your squiggly performance, it hisses loudly and ducks. While you were hoping to entrance it, making it stand down works just as well in your favor.

With your OMNI-DEXTERITY going in for simultaneous stab and shield bash is no problem, so steadfast you take advantage of this small moment of indecisiveness from the snake!

As you prepare to strike, you stay too long holding your momentum for the thrust that you give time for the rattlesnake to react. It moves its head to the side when you go in for the dagger hit, merely leaving a somewhat deep cut on it, following your plan of action is the buckler bash in which you almost lose your balance trying to hit the now wary snake! Only managing to bash its chin as it was again trying to evade your attack.

>>
>>5967827
So could we say, try to chomp the snake and stab it, or divert our dagger to the bat if the chomp kills the snake. Our dexterity makes it so we can make multiple attacks without a penalty but how does it work withe bite? Does it function as an auxiliary attack and doesn't have a penalty because it requires MP?

Colorful artwork!
>>
>>5967796
Regardless anon, I think using a dart right now would be a waste since we're in melee and they don't do as much damage. They're also limited. I'd be down for using all our melee attacks on the snake to get a breather though.

>>5967832
[I see now what you mean, yeah, if the bat doesn't act while you're biting you could be actionable by then and you'll get to decide if you go trough with it if things go that smoothly. Also, good question, since you've got more hand/feet-eye coordination, and the chomp doesn't really use it, it will incur a small penalty.]

These critters aren’t giving you any space! The possibility of peddling them out with darts crosses your mind but you can’t afford to be wasteful, not with them being so up close and personal.

Ultimately, you decide to go all out solely on the snake, you’ll enjoy munching on it or making it into a fine paste with your tools! Your attention might divert a bit from mauling it so you won’t be able to put as much finesse as usual to your vine attacks.

[LOST 7 MP]

You lunge voraciously at the rattlesnake and CHOMP it, crushing it entirely within your jaw! A faint hissed pathetic yelp is felt within your mouth, and it is no more, the rattlesnake has had pretty much its whole body devoured.

With all your focus on the simultaneous attack, and the snake being gone, your dagger attack ends up clashing with the ground but you manage to stop your buckler from clashing with the extra time. Hearing the bat lunge and shield ready, you brace yourself hastily.

The bat attempts to bite you and nearly succeeds but your quick guard manages to nearly block it only getting a slight scrape from it. It seems a bit aggravated from hitting your shield with its fangs.

You get an epiphany! This thing won’t be able to maneuver around you if it’s as blind as a- well, it’ll be even more blind. You try to grab the soil from the floor but, darn! This soil is as hard as stone! Nothing like the fertile fresh one in the previous rooms.

However, remembering seeing some more fresh soil on your previous location, you slither deftly over to it, the bat screeching at you and pursuing you relentlessly while at it.

No more annoying critters. Your vines still feel a little sore from all those demanding attacks, but it’ll probably go away given some time.

Now that you can inspect the room with care you notice a limped human with blood long dried shooting out of an empty eye of his, his body looks rather well preserved as well, you wonder if he’s alive. There were also three scrolls laying down close to him and a broken rusted dagger.

You wond-

A voice echoes through the dungeon can be heard “HEEEY! W-Is anyone there?! Heelp! Puh-lease! They’re- It’s- have some compassion for ga-ha-huhod’s saaakee!” sounds like an adult man, but a rather pathetic one.

“Doooow’ gwould ya shad up before I stab ye?!” A rather grumbled deep voice responds, it doesn’t sound human.

“Yah! We gots the most gborin’ job ever and you makin’ it borin’ n’ ANNOYING! Can’t even take no rest with you SCREAMIN’ at o’ earz! we gon stone gya if the bouss takes too long to come fo’ brunch!” this one is more irritatingly squeaky.

“No… I…” the pathetic man voice seems to die down. These guys are being pretty loud if you can hear them from here. All the voices are coming from the intersection in front of you.

Well that’s odd. What should you proceed to do now?

You consider simply looting the limped dead looking man but its suspiciously fresh state and alluring leftovers leave much doubt in your mind if this thing is truly dead. While you’ve only heard of them in tales and song, this dungeon has shown you to be strange enough to contain such things.

Before jamming the scrolls inside your knapsack, you lightly inspect them for any type of oddity, you don’t spot anything out of the ordinary other than them being a little torn and aged. After which you then get close to the presumptive cadaver and with watchful maneuvering scavenge for anything in his ripped knapsack, finding what you presume to be poison tipped green darts and 5 pence. Your small knapsack is getting a bit stuffy.

GOT: [5 PENCE] [4 POISON TIPPED DARTS] [2 RED SEALED SCROLL] [1 BLUE SEALED SCROLL]

Deciding that even at the state it is in it’d be even worse to leave behind, you delicately snatch the chipped rusty dagger from the stiff grasp of its previous owner. Quickly scraping the wall with it, you figure it’s somewhat serviceable despite being nicked.

EQUIPPED: [Rusty dagger - 1d4-1] ON LEFT LOWER VINE [3RD VINE]

Noticing the bat paste you made, you figure it’d be a waste to not eat such an exquisite dish made by yours truly!

You gather the bat’s scattered remains and eat them.

You take precaution in making noise and creep over towards the voices you previously heard, whoever these people are, you can’t be sure they’re going to welcome you with open arms. Some soft sobbing is audible, it kind of sounds like that man you heard before, and you are able to determine that it’s coming from above.

At a glance in the new environment you spot a packaged ration of hardtack on top of a wooden stool, but being here to see what’s going on;

There is a type of even more primitive looking goblin visible. It is wielding a slingshot, some crude leather armor and has a bag holstered. Behind it is an iron cage with a human inside. Both of them have yet to spot you.

The dungeon wall is blocking your vision so you can’t really get a good look at what’s beyond without possibly breaking your cover by being in the open.

All the previous time spent let your vines rest, and you feel back in shape!

You don’t trust these guys one bit. Clinging on the wall you used to peek at them, you crack one of your vines as if a whip and make some big noise to hopefully attract them to you! FWHOOOO-TAH

“WHA- is- is that him? OOOhh goddamit please tell me that’s not him!” Mr.sob.

They ate it up! You hear jogging towards your direction, one is further than the other, so you won’t be able to surprise that one, but this one that’s closer is yours for the taking.
The angle you’re in works against your rightmost upper vines so you won’t be able to fit a buckler strike in your initial blitz. Undeterred, you prepare your deadly strike.

That breastplate it's wearing could get in your way of piercing its flesh and preferring to skirmish your victims anyways, you decide to toy with your prey instead to see if you can get an upper hand.

You hunch over and tilt your head like a curious but hungry animal, getting in a standstill for a couple seconds, only staring coldly into him. He’s frozen in your presence, his eyes staring intensely back at you. So you decide to change that, you huff up and by exhaling that air from the crevices in your mouth you make a hissing like noise.

The goblin whimpers. “OH, PEOGH!!” he yells while trying to crawl away, dropping his mace on the floor in the act.

That’s rich.

Reveling in your feral gig, you holster your buckler and swiftly take out a poisoned dart from your sack, preparing to throw it at the cowering goblin.

While viciousness runs more in your latex, you ultimately conclude you can’t always have your iniquitous fun, they talked something about a boss before? You’d rather not deal with even more of these guys, not with them knowing you’re there at least.

With a plan of action premeditated you give chase to your fleeing prey boisterously, guiding yourself with the blood trail left behind!

You hear a feeble gasping cough closeby.

You catch up and spot the goblin, limping his body, now swollen arm clenched tightly, he seems to have heard your ruckus and turns his head back like with uncanny reaction.

Deciding to give him a scare and test the waters in case he tries something you quickly thrust the air in front of him with your iron dagger. He winces at your feint, puffs up his chest and closes his eyes.

But that wasn’t your real intention, was it?

Just as he opens he starts to open his mouth you lunge for a voracious bite!

The goblin falls unceremoniously to the hard soil, making a loud thud from his breastplate clashing on it. His body twitching slightly before settling down. With that being over, you finish munching on your small meal.

Yuck! You felt a slight taste of pork at the beginning but it ended up being super bitter afterwards! This flesh tastes terrible...

First, drag the two bodies to outside the cage. If someone comes we can hide behind the pillar and their attention will be immediately drawn to the corpses which gives us an ample opportunity to ambush them. After the corpse dragging, talk to the humie in the cage and then we can free him.

Sneering at the thought of setting up a macabre snare, you start dragging away the goblin’s corpse to outside the cage perimeters. Oof! This thing is a bit hefty for you! Bit messy, but you manage to tough it out with time. The smaller gob’s body isn’t as heavy as this one so you do it rather quickly compared to the other one.

Snapping your front vines together after a long job well done, this humie's got your attention now. While thinking he was a bit too pitiful, you can’t be so judgemental having experienced that type of verdict first hand, deciding to at least have some type of conversation with him.

But…oops. You instinctively hunch over. Maybe killing those guys might have left him with a bad impression. Shiiiiiit. You weren’t always the greatest at this type of thing. Well, no use arguing over it. You nonchalantly drag your vines towards him hoping to make it clear to him you’re totally down to have a talk and are certainly no murderer.

As you think about what you're going to say, you notice the look on his face. He isn’t looking directly at you, or seemingly anything for that matter. His gaze… it is like looking at an empty hall, the sunken pupils reflecting no sort of vibrancy, no target, just being a large one-way tunnel closed off of any light.

That complicates things. So… what now?

You ponder over how exactly you’re going to snap this guy out of this state he’s in… and you literally snap your vines together to get him to at least flinch!

FW’TAAA

The human flinches and straightens up.

“AAH! WHAT OH FUCK!”

Nice. He lost that dumbfounded stare of his. Wasting no second you start to speak;
“Hey! Human. Your captors are dead.”

His voice quivering “Wha- did-oh… I’m next right? Fuck… just… just do it, I just, can’t anymore.” Figures he assumed that about you.

“Nono wait, you see uhhh, goblins are hmm-” Whats that word that humans like using? sub? sub-human! “..subhuman. Yes. They are simply big insects to me. It’s like swatting or eating an annoying fly y’know?” you can’t help but notice the puckered squinted face he makes while you’re talking. You exhale some air in slight frustration at the scenario. “Basically, I’m no murderer okay?”

“O-okay? Soooo you’re NOT going t-to kill me?” he does some wavy finger motions towards you while backing away as much as he can.

“No.” You say bluntly. Hmph. If you wanted to, you think you could make your vines reach inside the small space dividing the metallic bars, so he’s quite oblivious to his real situation

Regardless you reckon you could get some use out of this human if he starts becoming more willing to cooperate. “Look. Let’s get you free’d up, alright? You know where the key is?”

He backs up to the wall. “Uhhh. N-no? You could err, m-maybe lo-… they. They knocked me out cold so I didn’t see where they had it by the time I woke up…”

“Alright.” Looks like he doesn’t seem to know. The chest probably has something so you first check on the goblin corpses just incase, turning them over with your vines to see if they had something else on them. The small one still has his bag of rocks tied up, and the heavy one didn’t seem to have anything else on him.

Turning back to the chest you kick it a little to hear if it has a lock or something worse on it. Little quick trick you used to do back in the day. Getting a good listen, the chest doesn’t seem to be locked or anything, only containing items of a sort. So you open it and see;

A thick iron key
An Iron shortsword
An Iron buckler
An empty small knapsack
A reddish fruity smelling potion
2 shillings
Some kind of wand

A slight cold breeze envelopes you after opening the chest. The artifact grabs your attention. Tilting your head to get a good look at it, it has 4 “lines” glowing with a light blue hue on its lower half. There are 3 more lines below it but they don’t have that blue glow the other ones have.

If this is some of the stuff that they took from that human, you reckon it could prove better to leave it in your personal possession. The only thing that you immediately grab being the iron key.

What will be your next action?

You decide to let the items rest upon the stiff embraces of the wooden chest, figuring that this key you have is probably the right one, you go over to the cell, place it in the lock and-

CLICK

Works like a charm. However you turn it back and close it again, this time approaching the aloof human. “Look, I want to get you out of the cage, really. But!... If I’m going to, ya’ need to tell me what exactly that wand lookin’ thing is” you say this with utmost sass.

“The- Wa? Oo-hohoh! You mean my wand! Y-yes uhh, It’s a magical wand that I bought off the… ehh market! Oh man, I really should’ve used that thing when I had the chance!”

He seems to like going on a tangent. “Sureeey’ but, hey-” You do your favorite vine snapping technique “I’m not gettin’ any info.” you say coldly. “Ah- well…” he audibly gulps.

“D-did you get a look at it? er-It’s like an explosy ice wand. The sky blue rectangles represent a… magical charge of sorts. You’re supposed to uhhh- thrust it while gripping it… and… it’ll release a huge dangerous explosion of ice in front of you. y-yeah…hopefully they haven’t used it all.”

“Hmph. Okay.” You hold your vines to your hip. “How's’ about that red potion?” He scratches the back of his ear “ T-that’s… my… curing potion. It’s supposed to be able to rid disease while healing your insides a nice amount…”

That sounds like a mighty fine thing to add to your repertoire, but before doing so you ask him one final thing. “Alrriight. You seem to know your potions, no? How about this one” You take out your unidentified green potion and show it to him;
“Tell me what this weird green potion does and you’re out.” He’s making that stupid face again, but then catches himself and frantically stares back at you and the potion. “I-uh, oh, man, m-maybe It’s a regeneration potion? Nanana- i-it’s an intelligence one! Wait-wait m-mayhaps it’s a-”

“That’s enough.” you cut his babbling off. This clearly isn’t going anywhere but it was worth a shot in your eyes. “Oh b-but” the glow in his eyes fading. Moving away from him you say “I’ll release you anyways.” He then lets out an exuberant sigh while holding his chest.

You go to the wooden chest, holster the wand and save the potion in your knapsack. From the way he described the potion, you make an internal estimate on how much it could heal you for, should you consume it.

GOT: Ice-explosion wand [Damage: ?] [Charges: 4] - Curing potion [Healing: 4-9 HP] [Can get rid of internal ailments]

As you approach the door cell he softly speaks, “Haha… that’s… that’s my wand you got there, well-” hearing him, you decide to respond. “Yeap’ consider it my part of the “fee” for the rescue, keheh.” he looks down to the floor “Hahahahaaaa…. haah…” Oh, lighten up. “I only took that. You can take whatever's left.”

CLICK

He still is staying a good distance from you but has a light smile on his face. “Ah... Man. Thanks a ton. I-I honestly thought you were- n-no offense! Some… irrational creature if you will”

“I’ve’ gotten that, and I think I do it prei’ good too”

“Hahaha… yeah…” he scratches his head “Uhh- my name’s Rodney. Rodney Wichman... I’m not particularly into introductions, but… figured it's the least I can provide, apart from… well. the fee...”

Hm. What a weird name. Should you say or do something?

You move out of the entrance to give him space to go towards the chest.
“You’re quite odd, how’d you even get in this situation in the first place?” He doesn’t say or do anything until you eventually do a vine gesture towards the chest.

He talks as he starts rummaging through the chest and equipping or saving anything he can.
“Well… to make a long story short, I dunno if you heard about the amulet that they say is here, but I was planning on getting it… It’s why I gambled all my money on that wand to make my life easier. I was exploring the lower parts around here and saw a shiny looking potion, cool right? But as soon as I went for it… these goddamn goblins sprinted and just HAMMERED me man!” He makes an exaggerated pummeling motion with his hand. “Like, fuck! I got knocked out, stripped of my shit and thrown into a cage like an animal!”

“And well the rest you’d know how it went. They told me their big ugly green boss was going to eat me alive! ALIIVEE! If i’m going to be eaten, let it be dead for the love of god! Even being gutted by some other green guy was starting to seem like a better deal than that!” That wasn’t short at all.

“That’s weirdly flattering and oh, ever so sad. But I’m a plant lass, for your information. Maybe even vegetable lass if you guys think of it differently.”

“Huh? You’re?- You uh- ah okay, well-” he seems surprised and you hear him mumble some words under his breath while looking away from you. “cerl-don-act-like-wan…” immediately clearing his throat afterwards;

“Well, my apologies, la-ahem. Miss Vine. I again tha-” You raise one vine firmly “Hold up.” you hadn’t thought about it before but he could have an idea of what these scrolls you picked up do. “Do you know what these scrolls do?” You take out one red scroll and another blue one to display them to him.

“Now now, I’m no mag-” you glare at him before he even finishes. “I- y-yeah let me see…” He holds his hand to his chin while looking at them. “Ain’t that red seal one an identify one? Pretty sure I saw it being sold as that in the magic shop I passed once, of course I didn’t buy it cause they were selling it for like a whole cow! Greedy bastards. I don’t know how exactly it works but it should give you sum m-a-g-i-c-a-l-l-y transfered knowledge over things close to your body.”

So an identify scroll? “How’s about the blue one then?” he squints at it “Uhh- I wouldn’t really know, sorry.” How disappointing. You put the scrolls back in your sack.

“Hey wait, do you know where the goblin wearing the breastplate is? That old thing is mine! Gonna need it for my trip back.” they’re of no use to you so you oblige.

“Hm, follow me, that thing would be too cumbersome to wear anyways.” you both walk towards the corpses, him seemingly trying to be as loud as possible stomping around like an idiot. You get there and point at the breastplate one.

“BLURGH.” sounds like he swallowed something. “Gaah… y-you you did this huh? How… utterly terrifying.” It takes him a while because of his little jumps he’s doing while disrobing the corpse but he gets the armor and puts it on.

“Aahh- feels good to be inside this! Again, thank you miss Vine but I shall n-”

HOOOOOOOOooouumimimimi… phoOOOobibibibi…

That… sounds like somebody trying very badly to snore? And obnoxiously loud too. Pretty much asking for your attention you peer towards where the sound is coming from, cautiously unholstering your buckler as you spot some type of antennaed blue skinned humanoid. It’s wearing a loinclothed robe and laying in an awkward suggestive pose, giving its back to you.

“Whoaaa” says Rodney seemingly bewitched by the figure.

Seeing this strange creature at first sight, your first instincts to swiftly end its course of life or simply avoid it for the moment are voluntarily suppressed. For whatever of the both you’d choose you bet the human would find a way to ruin it somehow. You’d really prefer if he would just go away!

Lamenting your situation and being in a dilemma of sorts, you decide to ask the root of your problems himself for some information.

“Zztttt, hey.” he seems oblivious to your low whispers. “ZSSSST. hey!” he finally looks in your direction. “hey. what the hell is that thing?” He looks back again at the creature.

“Hah, I have no idea. But I sure am willing to find out!” he pushes his chest upwards and takes a strut towards the thing, swinging his arms in an exaggerated fashion. Oh boy. “wait- before you go tell me how many charges this wand h-” you are cut off by him “Had four last time I used it. Anyways, I'm busy!” When did this rashness of his come to be?

Clanging around like a buffoon with his breastplate, the humanoid's antennae twitch and it stops laying in its pose, lifting itself from the ground. Looks like a female. She eerily turns around with what’d you say is a devilish smile on her bug eyed face. “Heeeeey~” she says, while waving her fingers.

Deciding to put a stop to the charade you take out a non-lethal dart as a forewarning to this vixen that certain things, like this human for example, are meant to be used to YOUR advantage. Especially if you went through the trouble of freeing them first.

You expertly fling your dart on the humanoid’s head! Off from the center by a little, but were you to have a dart with more oomph, you bet the humanoid’s head insides would be seeping out of her right about now!

The humanoid shrieks in pain in a horrifying manner, the sound vibrations feeling like a heavy wind shaking your body.


“EEYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAA”

Rodney grunts, taken aback by the explosive scream, his ears bleeding after the fact. “OOOW- huh?!”

[HIT FOR 1 HP]
HUMAN HP = 16

The humanoid triest to hold her wound. “FIYAAAK! What the-” she spots you and gives you a piercing scowl, her antenna twitching towards you too. After some seconds, a confused expression fills her face as she sniffs the air and then reprimands “You. BITCH!”

“Maan…Wha- hey what’s g-” The humanoid grips Rodney by his cheeks, turning him around to her gaze, antenna pointing towards him while doing so. “FOCUS.” she yells with a rotten tone.

Rodney tries to struggle before going limp again. She then hides behind him as cover “You dirty grass harpy! Have at you!” she vindictively points a finger at you and yells “Kill her!”

The human turns around with a lifeless look and starts to approach you steadfastly!

Dangit. What now?

Hide behind the wall and use our vine physiology to climb it up and hide in the corner between the wall and ceiling. If that's impossible back off to where rodney can't see us, grab some dirt, throw it in his face, hen run past him and shoot this charmstress with the wand.

Another plan would be to still throw some shit in rodney's eyes and then use a smoke scroll before rushing the woman with daggers and buckler in hand

A surge of plans floods your mind as the adrenaline of this turn of events pumps you up!
Looks like your thanks for the charity you had towards the human is going to be repaid in a nasty way and you don’t want him anywhere near you for that. So you scatter quickly to hide behind the dungeon wall, the hard soil not feeling nice whatsoever, and to make things worse, your buckler almost slows down your progress.

But with your tender vines neatly being able to fit in most little brick looking crevices, you manage to climb up to the ceiling with ease! While the human’s movement is not sluggish his awareness seems dulled. Taking advantage of this you hide in the corner up top.

You could get used to this type of thing

While it was no big deal scaling up to the ceiling, you feel like you’re not going to be able to hold on like this for much too long.

The human rather clumsily looks around in his immediate peripheral and eventually moves past you, not once bothering to look up. Gracefully, you pounce towards the wall to be able to spot the charmstress, she is taken aback at your new position and seemingly paralyzed!

You can’t hold on to the wall much longer!

You don’t exactly know the power of this wand, but you’re willing to give it a test run with her!

You unholster your wand from your belt and…

You thrust your wand and it emits a blinding light followed by a huge cold explosion! The humanoid implodes and is scattered into a hundred beautiful pieces within the walls of the dungeon.

With your grip being so flimsy you are pushed back by the recoil and are involuntarily rolled back in the ground. You catch yourself but get a bit scraped.

That wand... it’s a work of art. Creating a mesmerizing visage composed of every fiber of a previously alive being, the crimson liquid seeping in every crevice it could, the flesh seemingly still pulsing with every vibrance it used to have, decorating the dungeon halls… you almost feel like you’ve accomplished a hidden accomplishment in your life, to be able to see this, truly you are thankful.

All the killings before this you feel built up to this moment. In your euphoria, you get a surge of ideas to attempt to replicate this type of instance, or to facilitate the accomplishment of one…

You have a fleeting thought of honing in on your fiendish tactics, but ultimately decide that those moments when your prey never knew of their premeditated demise… those are the ones that you most desire to gruesomely take pleasure in. Those that dare to live will in time know your name…

You try to remember what was your usual method was and change things appropriately while fiddling with your weapons;

Perhaps there is something to be done on the way you thrust your dagger, yes… the back of something’s neck, you killed an animal instantly like that once… the sharp edge of the blade, certainly you could orient your weapon in such a way before time and put more force into the initial attack… twisting the edge could let you cut them up in a nice way once you have them.

This will do. You found a better way to fiddle with your form of attack before an ambush!

Ah. You wished you had more in you but your ecstatic state fades away after that time, not letting you relish in more schemes.

“Gaah… w-what-where is everybody…” you turn around to see the human starting to lift himself from the ground, your sneer still not wiped from your face. He is curiously looking around, before contemplating the flesh close to him and your personal masterpiece in front of him. “HOL-GWAAAAAGH-” he pukes out some yellowish fleshy substance.

“O-h-oh BGGGG-” he pukes yet again. You find this somewhat upsetting. “Gaah… hah…” he wipes his barf clean off “W-wha… whad the FUCK…” he looks towards your direction. “The wand… y-ou… stay… stay away!” There he goes. He storms off in a nearby room downwards.

You consider what to do but you are interrupted by… serene whistling. It starts off strong and dies down in a melodic way, like the call a woodsman does for its mutt, you can’t lie that it’s a bit alluring, though it sounds far away.

...Now what should you do about this?

These sound distractions are starting to get on your nerves… you feel like there might be some interesting stuff you’ve missed from being so in the motions since meeting that human.

In fact, the human’s loud footsteps accompanied by iron clanging steer further away from your hearing. Bah. Even as a dedicated meatshield, this meek guy is more trouble than he’s worth. At least he proved useful by letting you… “borrow” this great artifact of harmonious doomsday.

Regardless, you feel like you must investigate what exactly is going on now. This whistling… You really hope it’s not a woodsman, the ones you’ve met, while you personally liked their attitude, are known to be… pretty non-amiable whenever interacting with outsiders and be extremely territorial. What could one be doing here if so?

You sneak & peek around the corner to see if you can get a glance of whatever’s making this noise. And see… no living entity. Nothing outside of a wooden ornamented chest laying there. The coast looking clear, you take advantage to look around your area and of interest, can only spot the lone naked dried corpse of a human inside a nearby cubbyhole to your left.

The noise stopped but you felt like it was further away than in your vicinity.What do you do or go to from this?

Thinking of luring out whatever creature may lurk outside your sight, and no rocks being near you, you improvise and throw a chunk of flesh from the charmstress that was around you near the chest! Surely a more beastly type of monster will react or be attracted by it.

The flesh chunk makes a splatting noise when hitting the ground and you think you catch what sounds like some rings clanging together briefly as soon as it does.

You expected something more interesting, but something about that was off. Silence again fills the room.

What’s next for you?

You go back to grab another chunk of flesh and chuck it directly at the pretty chest this time around. You hear the thud of the flesh colliding with the wooden structure accompanied yet again by that jingly noise you heard before, with a really low sound of a blow of air afterwards.

With the dead silence, the sounds emitted from different directions let you discern that the jingling alongside the blow of air came more towards the direction in the tunnel near the chest.

You’re having a bit of fun throwing things despite the possible circumstances.

What’s your next endeavor?

As you prepare for your climbing maneuver thinking of the perfect way of scaling the wall in a skillfull silent manner one of your lower vines twists making you lose balance, changing your trajectory! You save yourself from bumping to the ceiling with your extra upper appendages but in doing so accidentally knock your buckler to the wall, creating a small but high pitched clang!

T’ang

You hear a gnarly battlecry from the tunnel “GRAAAAAAAAAH!”

CLINK!

A creature comes out from the tunnel and violently clashes its poleaxe against the hard brick wall, the wall screeching after the fact. Getting a quick look at it, those bloodshot eyes and large tusks… there’s no doubt! That's an Orc! You’ve not seen one yourself before and really would rather not see any more of their ugly swine face. You instinctively flinch back from the whole ordeal and back up to the upper wall.

He looks up and spots you after his attack missed. “Whad are yo-” “Grah! Tha flesh I’m throwin’ nhext iz YOURS! You.. whatevha’ you are!” he takes a lower battle ready stance and tightly grips his weapon making some jingling noise from all his quick motions. His weapon looks a bit ruined, possibly from the way he scraped the wall with it.

He’s wearing chainmail, some leather pants & shoes and is wielding a chipped iron poleaxe.

You’re in quite the tight spot.You need to do something.

You come up with a devious plan of handling the present event, a fleeting thought crosses your mind for blasting the fiend with your artifact as a byproduct of the pressure, but resourcefulness is very key to getting by in any type of situation! You would rather see figuratively the type of guts this creature has before deciding to decimate it like that.

The Orc steadfastly approaches you and you scramble to get out a scroll of smoke just in time from your sack, you hold in your breath knowing the true power of the foggy smokescreen being able to inhibit breathing. You let the scroll go and do it’s thing, holding back your body against the wall before extending your vines and propelling yourself past the Orc!

Rolled 1 - 2 (1d20 - 2)

Tumbling to the floor you half-stand up and lay low before setting up your next attack in this obscured field as your cloak envelopes you in the misty shadows you’ve created. Your eyes squinting to damage them at least as possible, you can see the orc coughing while still holding his ground. Turning his weapon with precaution.

“Hakgh! Gakh! Hya’ fukhen plhant!” He's having some trouble breathing with the smoke.

You find that purely thrilling.

That chainmail he has on him… it’s not gonna let you rend his flesh as easily, you’re going to have to impale him if you were to attack him directly. Regardless you recognize it’s your opportunity to strike despite him being so fidgety.
