Chapter two

It is the next morning. We find Ring waking from a fantastically uninteresting dream about jogging to discover that she has the slightest hint of a hangover. What thoroughly wholesome journeys will you guide her along today?

go over the plan, such as it is, with Geoffrey and ask if he has any input. From what I understand the plan is for you to distract at least one of them in some way while Geoffrey stomps at least one of them in mush, and after that just kinda wing it.

Geoffrey sort of bows to let me up on his back. He doesn't want to tread on me and it'll be much faster if he leads. It’s kind of amazing being up this high. This must be like in those books where they ride on elephants!

>>992427
>>992622
So the plan is basically for me to distract the Trolls while Geoffrey waits hidden nearby. I’ll try to lead them out one at a time and he’ll pounce on them and beat them up. Or maybe he’ll literally just pounce on them, that’d be pretty hard to recover from on its own, considering.

I go over this and he’s enthusiastic. We’ll try and stick to this overall plan as much as possible but something’s bound to come up.

>>992431
>Hey Geoffrey, you haven't smelt any patches of really horrible smelling plants around the forest, have you? Like really horrible smelling.
>NOT THAT I RECALL. SOUTH THERE ARE SEVERAL PATCHES OF LARGER BLOOMS THAT HAVE AN OVERWHELMING SENT. BUT THE SENT IS SWEET AND PLEASANT - NOT HORRIBLE. THEY SMELL LIKE THE HOUSES BEES MAKE.
No luck on secret undiscovered Troll Bane. Still worth checking though.

>>992431
Jomens was the boy you thought had a crush on me in Literacy class. He just wanted to be friends with the dragon girl and you made it awkward because you always try and get me to date people. Or think people want to date me. Or just want everyone to date.
You remember trying to get my brother to date that guy?
Or my other brother to date that girl?
Or when you tried to convince me that dating my brother would be fine because we're all adopted? Becuase I remember.
Always weird the way you just forget chunks of stuff when you die down for a bit.

Ah! It’s so cool being up here. Look at all the birds! Anyway, we're getting near the north bit where the Trolls have been ambushing people. What are the first steps we should take once we're there? I'm asking early because we're going to have to be pretty sneaky from here on out to keep them from noticing Geoffrey.
>>
No. 994750 ID: b1b4f3

>>994735
Hmm, dragon girl? Is that your best guess for what species you are? You told us you didn't know. Aren't there some qualities of dragons you're missing? You know, wings, massive claws, armored scales, fire breath, urge to hoard valuable items? Well, you do have an affinity for gems so maybe that last one's covered.

To properly plan we need to see what their hideout looks like.
I wonder if we could set up some tripwires or snares, then lead them into it? Or pit traps? That could be enough to split up the group if you can't lure just one away.

Geoffrey, take to the trees. Ring, you're going to have to tiptoe around.

>Or just want everyone to date.

Yeah, that sounds like something we'd do. Sorry about that.
>>
No. 994781 ID: 12b116

First priority is going to be finding a spot where we can hide Geoffrey for appropriate ambushing tactics.

We also need to know if they're all sitting around in a clump jerking off or if they're spread out to see how reasonable it will be to lure them off one at a time.

Don't forget, you still have that bread, which is certain to come in handy.

>>994750
Yeah and I also told you my parents let me say I was a dragon girl. Because ‘unspecified lizard-ish female’ doesn't get you as many friends. Everyone wants to at least talk to dragon girl.

Tripwires and stuff sound useful if I can find a way to make them. Don’t know how strong a rope needs to be to trip a troll but it’s probably a lot. Anything that could slow one sounds good, then Geoffrey can jump on them easy.

>>994775
You’re either super logical or weirdly horny. I used to think you represented the animal-instinct and rational-evolved parts of my brain like in... uh... the unconscious thought lady. The lady who wrote the book about thinking. Oh, you won’t remember her name either. Anyway, sometimes you mix up the comments and I’m not sure you’re classifiable like that anymore. Pro relationship is applicable though.

>>994761
>>994781
Ok we ought to be real close to the area by now. I’ve got Geoffrey to wait in the thicker trees back here while I go scout out ahead. If the Trolls catch wind of him they’ll either gang up to chase him off or hide from him.

Oh yeah. Bread. Sure.

Kindof looks like a dowsing rod.

>>1000472
I have picked up the stick. This is important to you and I respect that.

>>1000708
Ok, so I went and scouted out the perimeter of the area. I didn’t see much of note yet other than a wrecked cart or caravan - I didn’t jump in to get a better look yet -, but when I came back around to check on Geoffry, this little hill thing wasn’t where I left it. I don’t want to call it early, but this might be what Woody was talking about.

Is this a buried Troll? It doesn't smell any worse than the rest of the forest around here, but looking again that hump-hill is kinda weird right? I think the idea of secret disguised ambush Trolls is actually making me kinda, slightly... paranoid.
>>
No. 1005406 ID: 53560f

And this is why it’s extremely important to carry a little useless junk around.
Throw stick at the mound and hide somewhere different from where you threw it. Be ready to book it straight to Geoffrey in case you get found.
If necessary then you can throw Jerry at it to distract it from trying to eat you.
>>
No. 1005426 ID: 96c896

>>1005402
Yeah that's gotta be a troll. Hmm, did the wreck look like it might be useful as shelter? Like, was it big enough that a troll wouldn't be able to push it over? Or, could you hide inside it maybe? Let's consider it as a direction to reatreat to.

I don't see any other mounds though. Before we begin, you should try to find all three. Let's look around near the wrecked cart/caravan first.

"Throwing sticks at each other is how my people flirt. Running away afterward and being chased is also part of it, like squirrels do. Congratulations, you caught me, so now I have to give you some bread, and then we, um..."

Try to delay him with your charms. Doing so could never backfire, right?

Apologize to him and tell him that you were practicing a mating ritual, which requires throwing sticks and his mud pile just looked really alluring for some reason, maybe because he's so handsome himself, but you really shouldn't be saying this because someone like him should definitely already have a wife and you wouldn't want to impose... , etc.
As far as your species go, tell him that, uhh, you're a distant relative of trolls, as he can see, you both walk on two legs, wow, he has such wide shoulders~

So, your continued existence relies on you keeping this entity pleased with things that you can only effectively offer while both alive and unmaimed.

Ask them why wouldn't a troll be hearing about wives and flirting? Surely there's them what fancy strong lanky arms, long snoots and tongues and whatnot.

Say you're sorry, but you've never actually met a troll before. You'd no idea they were so, uh. Muscular.

Does he work out?

Yeah, it isn't, and you're just eating it up aren't you? Doesn't it make you hungry for companionship? When's the last time you had a morsel like this to hand, hm? Don't eat me, by the way. Please think about stuff that is not eating.

It’s working, he’s not thinking about eating me at all! This was of course the outcome we wanted! I am also not complimenting his tongue. That’s an eating part of the mouth.

Uhh, I think I’ve successfully made him more interested in talking than anything else for now. He seems to like compliments! I‘m guessing Trolls don’t get nice things said about them much and I think me being a new species gave him pause.

>>1012523
I can’t just say I want to marry him! He’d take me back to the Troll den and keep me there. I need to stall in some other way.

>>1012558
Yeah, he’s talking. I need to try and calm down more before I talk but he just chased and caught me and now he’s towering over me and I did not expect him to be this huge.

Tell Threese that you actually do have a friend back there who you were in fact going to get - and make sure to praise his cleverness in figuring that out - but only the one friend, who's certainly not hiding in any bushes. This particular friend has actually been far more interested in polite conversation, and less willing to assault strangers, than you are, for as long as you've known them.

All technically true, but mostly quite misleading.

No. 1013000 ID: c92a02

Wait, are you implying I look like a lizard? Because that's what you think I'd like, if I was? Maybe I'm complimenting your troll-like looks, because I like how trolls look. Food for thought.

Tell him that you like what you see of him, but you've never seen a troll up close before, and you'd need to get a closer look at him so that you can find even more to compliment. That'll give you plenty of time to stall, to look around the room a little, and to learn more about troll anatomy so you know any weak points or other advantages you might have.
>>
No. 1013485 ID: ca0259

Look, seeing as he's amenable to talking and you still have backup... somewhere nearby, why not just try to calm down and be honest: the local village thinks he's been attacking them when it really just seems like they wander onto his little patch of forest and he scares them off.

I dunno, tout the value of co-existence. Companionship is a wonderful thing. Tell him how there'd be plenty for a big strong troll like himself to do if he was friendly with the townsfolk.
