As long as your leaves are exposed to sunlight, you'll regenerate hunger passively and contribute a tiny amount to your GROWTH meter.

You have three choices for your GROWTH.

The first option gives you an additional leaf, along with a strange green appendage atop of your head. This GROWTH will give you an additional size bonus, as well as increase your overall STRENGTH - Health, Stamina, etc. It will likely keep you wanting to stay close to soil.

The second option feels catty. You're a little more fleet of foot, but more than that, you feel drawn to the sea the more you think about it. This will increase your size minimally, in addition to being able to function above and underwater.

The third option feels...flighty. You can feel yourself grow lighter, almost as if the wind wants to sweep you off your feet and carry you to the skies. You can feel the wind calling to you the more you think on this one. It will increase your SPEED, give you a minimal size boost, and enable you to hover short distances.

Either choice feels like it will permanently alter your future.

It attaches its tendrils like vines to your stick, accepting you as its carrier. Otherwise, it shows no sign of life besides soft pulsing.

Glowitus, I name thee. Mightly companion of intermittant glowing. We must nourish you, teach you, and help you to reach your maximum potential as we walk the same path. We are fated.

we need some rocking neck and arm veins, to carry nutrients to our new swollness. Growth! We will be the Veiny beast!

Glowitus - A strong name. Your stick-lantern is a bit weightier, but your GROWTH levels makes it feel comfortable in your grip. The bulb seems sturdy enough to join you on your journey unimpeded.

OK, The eye looks like the only weak spot, can you jump on those rocks near him and then on his back? You'll need to stop the stinger with your shield, then stab the eye with your stick. That if you don't see weaker spots or you are not agile enough to do as I've suggested

The beastial creature meets you halfway. It takes a low stance and strikes viciously, but you raise your shield in preparation. The sturdy shell blocks the assault, leaving the chitinous monster open for reciprocation!

The fool! The imbecile! It has made the classic blunder and underestimated us! With it raised up, there is maximum force on it's limbs going downward. We shall kick it's kness to the side, breaking it's legs and blocking with a shield.

Option B. Smack it where we think it's gonads are with glowitus.

Option C. Kick and break one leg, while smacking gonads with glowitus!

A valiant dodge! You deftly perform a combat maneuver, using the force of your body's momentum to put more power behind your strike. You take some damage from the tail's quick strikes near your shoulder, but the trade was worth it.

The scorpion-tailed crustacean is knocked off its high stance, and has a leg taken with it. It is crippled, and badly wounded!

You close in with your shell raised, the creature's sharp limbs scraping and clacking madly like a spoon rapping on a lobster. Even with the sturdiness of your stalwart shield, its durability is definitely being tested. Maybe surfing on rocks with it was not the best idea, (but it was still radical, so totally worth it).

Just kidding. You just got bigger.

Your head accessory has revealed itself to be a Water Lily! You've unlocked a new ability:

"Terror Shriek!" - Your GROWTH path evolves a latent ability to instill the fear of the deep unknown in your enemies. Most potent underwater, it causes the attacker to see visions of terrible sea creatures with huge teeth and crushing tentacles! Aboveground, it will make your enemies feel as if possibly thousands of seabirds are nagging them for salinated oily snacks! How horrifying!

Also, you feel pretty.

Burrowing your roots inside of it would probably not be healthy for you - you make use of whatever small crevasses in the rocks you can find. It won't provide much, but it'll do for the night.

It'll take you a while to make some effective weaponry and armor, but your GROWTH should make it simpler. Sadly, your previous equipment is getting too small for you. Your stick might only be good for carrying Glowitus for you now, and the shell defender is not much of a tower shield anymore.

There's a few items you can probably whip up from the beast, though.

Stinger Spear, Crab Leg Sword, Spiky Chitin Fists, Crustacean Clubber, in addition to possibly some smaller sharp objects for throwing and tool use. You can probably make one of these, and the smaller tools in a short while.

Armor: Crusty Helm, Shell Gauntlets, Crabplate, Crab Shell Defender (Round, Medium, or Tower)

You could make all of them or only a few, but it'll take more time for fitting and shaping.

Additionally, the meat may come in handy for something. You get no sustenance from meat, you are purely a nutrients-and-sunlight kinda plant, but that doesn't mean everything else is.

You bide your time, recuperating from your adventures with a solid feeding, your roots digging deeper in to the stone for what little bits of nourishment you can find, stepping outside from time to time to get some sun.

The endless cycles of day and night pass by, and you've finally finished the armor set. Not bad for your first try. You even got creative and used the blood as paint.

You're not too sure how you even knew how to make things - it just kind of came to you in a brief moment of clarity, like some sort of...Fey Mood.

The mood has passed, however, and you're all set to continue your journey. It's light enough to maneuver in water in, but too heavy to effectively swim.
