There's a metal gate here! It's pretty sturdy, but this piece in the middle is wobbly, I may be able to force it, I'm not even sure what else is in here.
I remember my young brother and I returning from hunting, not too many of the villagers were around but we didn't think anything of it. We went to our hut and and ate dinner, then went to bed. There was a lot of rustling, and I remember kicking someone who grabbed me before they hit me in the head. Then I woke up here....

I have entered the HALLWAY. Scarlet is nestled upon my head, I think he's sleeping. I can see some sort of potion and a book on the shelves, and there is a heavy steel door. There appear to be several keys hanging by the door.
I can't hear anything, and aside from the scratching before I... I haven't heard much.

I second this, but after that, take your salamander back to the wall and have him shoot at the noise.

Take all the keys, just in case. This will let you navigate this place better and hopefully slow your captors down at the same time. See if you can use the rings/string on the keys to fasten them together and carry them more easily. Then look at the book and see if it gives you any clues as to where you are.

Can you tell whether Scarlet was the one making that scratching noise earlier?

Also, who or what is Oa-il?

Everything is dead silent, I can't even hear my own footsteps. Oh, Scarlet's awake. I can hear HIM, it's a whispered rasping sound when he exhales.

Life is all about risks! Except, you know, when you want to live....

Oh well! I take Scarlet and gently wrap her in my toga-sheet, tip-toeing back to my cell and placing her inside. She will be safest here I like to think.

I stealthily scoot back into the main lobby and squeeze against the wall. I've, well, I've never changed color against a NOT color before so I shall take it as a learning experience! I can hardly make out myself at this point, safe enough I suppose and I can always.... Okay so I don't have an escape route juuust yet. I'm working on it.

I chuck the book at the guard, Take that!

He sneer at her when she opens her mouth and points at her tongue. There is no sound from HER either. A poor trait in a female, we prefer loud and boisterous. GECKO GUARD rolls his eyes and pulls a box labeled KEYS from behind the desk. Damn, how many keys does this place have?

No. 444408 ID: af6fbd

Maybe being fighty isn't our best bet here. I mean, your natural advantages seem to be more towards stealth as it is. How about stealing the keys while he's a little distracted by the girl-lizard?

And if you do manage to grow a little bit of a spine, you can easily clobber him after he walks past you on the way to her cell. His chair would do the job nicely.

I have to be quick, who knows how long he will accept her charade. This box of keys is, wow, really heavy. I could brain him if I could lift this thrice damned box!

Maybe I should try that potion. I have no idea what it does though.... I suppose I could throw it at him, maybe it has a surface effect.... or I could risk it and chug the thing myself.

I am a man! I can make decisions! The fate of that pretty females tail-vent depends on this!

Well, IF you're sure this is that kind of potion, I guess it wouldn't make much sense as a weapon, as throwing or force-feeding it to someone would be too likely to spill some of it and lose the full effect. Which means it's likely to be something helpful. I'd still suggest testing it to make sure it's not just a bottle of acid or something, but other than that... it seems like there's only one way to find out what it does.

Unless you want to stop and ask the guard first. He'd probably know.

No. 446498 ID: 886a4d

I say we chuck it at the guard.
No. 446499 ID: b33427

Considering it was on a shelf in a prison, it could be for the guards to drink themselves, throw at the prisoners, or force-feed a prisoner. And if it does have an effect on drinking, it might be one beneficial to Geckos, and detrimental to Chameleons. Hell, do we even know if this thing is a potion, besides the bottle shape? It could be expensive booze, for all we know. All together, it's not a risk worth taking to chug it here and now.

However, there might be one person who does know what it does. The female Chameleon has been here longer than you, so she might have seen or heard what it does.

Get out where she can see you, pull out the potion, make the "drinky-drinky" motion with your thumb and forefinger, and point to yourself. If she doesn't give you a look that screams "you bloody idiot," down that potion.

Don't run with pointy sticks. It's a good way to hurt yourself. Besides, stealth and the element of surprise are all that allowed you to get as far as you did last time. That's probably your main advantage over the bigger, more numerous geckos.

Okay, so the pattern would put the last number as 14, but the lock only goes up to 13. Try putting 1 in as the last digit, but if that doesn't work you're going to have to try every other number.

...unfortunately, there is no number 18. The dial stops at 13, so 14=1, 15=2, 16=3, 17=4, 18=5.

So... 6 4 10 8 5 is my guess, I suppose.

Although it's entirely possible that any pattern in the first 4 digits is completely coincidental and we'll have to brute force the last digit anyways.

...or do we? It's the last digit, can't we just keep turning until we feel or hear a click? Often, with that style lock, you don't even need to remember the last digit, since the latch catches and releases as soon as you twist the dial past it.

If it's the last number then you can just check each number on the final spin to see if it's unlocked yet. It'll just take a little time.

On the other hand, the pattern is 6-2-6-2. As in, 6 left, 2 right, 6 left, 2 right. So continuing the pattern you would go 6 left after the 8, which is 14. Much faster than checking each number.

I roll in the numbers. I-I've never seen a lock like this before, so I go in sequence.

No, not like that idiot. left, then right, then left again.

I'm sorry! A-all this metal stuff is too weird.

The lock pops off! FINE LADY CHAMELEON pushes the metal gate open and steps out into the LOBBY. She looks down at her hands for a long moment.

...a really long moment....

You're out! we're free!

It almost seems like she is mad at you for some reason.

Let some tears well up in your eyes and start babbling about how you just woke up in this horrible prison and some guard tried to molest you and all you wanted to do was try to help her escape and now your salamander is tired and its all gone wrong.

Try not to pause or breath in-between words.

If there is anyone that should be angry here, it's US!

Well SOMEONE is ungrateful. What, you upset you didn't get rescued by a knight in shining armor? I could have just gotten out of there while I could and left you behind for that gecko to do whatever he wanted with, but instead I tried to make sure YOU were safe before leaving. Oh, go ahead and tell me how much of an idiot you think I am. Because that's what you're going to do, isn't it? Berate the guy who just busted you out? Because if that's how you feel then you can just STAY in the cell, because you're on your own.

Ask her what that was for.
No. 514004 ID: 9ddf68

tell her if you don't like it out here feel free to go back into the cell. and if she gives you crap about you being useless or stupid or something then point out the fact that since you where the one that let her out what does that make her?

Do this and then
Give Scarlet the poster to eat, fire likes paper, doesn't it?
No. 514222 ID: bc8d67

...You know, you actually deserved that slap for the unmitigated stupidity of drinking that potion earlier when nearly any other plan short of slapping the guard's ass would have been better. And considering what vile things the gecko guard must have done to her due to your moronic actions, she's letting you off lightly.

Just look her in the eye and say you deserved that for what you did before, with the potion. You're still are going to cry a bit, 'cause that hurt.

Go over and pick Scarlet up and put her on your head, then start picking the keys up from the floor. Tell the Lady that there's a big metal door with a lock back there that might have something or maybe another prisoner behind it that could help us, and ask her to help pick the keys up with you.

Feeding Scarlet some paper from the poster, or even some of the dead gecko guard, might work to bring his flame back.

I would not be surprised if she can consume flammable material to fuel some sort of magic chemical reaction.

If not this, some actual food will have to wait.

Let's not get hostile with one another, Lilac doesn't need to worry about us arguing.

Yeah, let's see if we can find some way to make Scarlet feel better.

I go to pick up Scarlet, my eyes watering just a bit, W-what was that for...?

Oh she wasn't happy about that. She runs over and snatches up Scarlet before I can get over there.

What was it for?

She goes over to the dead guard, her anger is thick enough to taste, but she handles Scarlet gently...

WHAT was that FOR?

Her foot crunches into the dead guards nose...

You can't be stupid enough to ask that. Stop being stupid. Get some of that poster for her.

I oblige, tearing an un-bloodied piece of paper from the metal bar, trying to avoid touching anymore gecko blood, the last of which I think my skin absorbed, gross!

I-I'm sorry. I deserved that slap... I'm not a real hero type, y-you know? I just want to go home and get away from all this grey. I feel like I can't breathe or think straight...

She seems to consider my apology, her face softening a bit. She continues to kick and prod the guard though

...Thank you for saving my salamander. Come on, you're stupid, but I'm sure I can figure out the big door and we can leave. Which Forest are you from?

On the topic of introductions; Chameleons may not use proper names, but it seems like it'd be a good idea to ask what she'd like you to refer to her as, and what her salamander's name is.

We can't just go around referring to her as the FINE LADY CHAMELEON, and it'll be awkward if we refer to the salamander as Scarlet and she's already chosen a different name for it.
No. 514637 ID: fe2ea3

It could be she's mad because we've kinda mistreated her salamander in the course of getting its help. Pretty sure it only bit through the bars because it was agitated by them. Plus we worked the poor thing to exhaustion in the proccess.
