We can't go back under the lake, the sapphire and scroll are both gone. Maybe we should've stayed down there all day, but we didn't have any food...

This is a big problem... the ruins might be safe, maybe? Like, we could use the elevator and wait down there?
I can't tell how fast these things move. If we can outrun them then sure, luring them away would work fine.

Your Mantis Knife has the Backstab Weapon Trait, which let’s you ignore 3 FG when you attack an enemy from behind! Sneak over there and stab one of those things in the back!

Then yell as loud as you can to get your allies attention, so they know you’re out here!

>If the outhouse has a door, try sneaking to there
The out-house has a small window, but that should be bared off...

>make some noise away from the camp and try to outmaneuver them when they investigate?
This may work, though it might be an issue if Vermilion attracts extra unwanted attention with the noise he'll make.

> Sneak over there and stab one of those things in the back!
The 3 FG ignored might not be enough to beat out the corpse bag's FG and even if it does the damage may be negligible.

>The ruins might be safe, maybe?
Encountering more on the way is a risk, but still a good option.

Can you make a bomb with a long timed fuse to lure them to the noise and then approach the door from the opposite direction?
>>
No. 942544 ID: ce39da

Sorry for being vague; I meant to say "I can't tell if the outhouse has a door on its hinges, so you tell me if it's viable to hide out in there."

I agree with the notion that simply fighting them isn't viable.

If you can't make a noise remotely somehow, then the ruins might be your best option.

You could position yourself behind a side most trap, then attempt to runaround them to get to the cave.
Your circular path would be of greater circumference and therefore normally this wouldn't work, but you can do this to guide them into more traps. Be sure to yell out for Arrayan and Jordie to get the fuck out here though, because at least one, baybe two are gonna be on your ass.

Getting into the cave with the others is the best thing to do, since it’s a safe area that we know doesn’t have enemies in it. Our only problem is getting in there.

>>942564
>something to throw?
We could probably take everything out of the lockbox and put it into our bag. Then we can throw the empty lockbox off to the side so that these things will go look for whatever made that noise.

I thought there were at least 2 pitfall traps with spikes? I know one of them had already been used, but what about the other one? Did they just get lucky and not fall in it?

>>942536
>What do?
Throw something to the side, so that the monsters leave to look for what made the noise. Then hope one of the others can hear you when you knock on the door and tell them to let you in.

One of the traps has already been used and the wooden spike were all destroyed. And we can't zap anyone with our shield because we already used it to zap the rust monster, so our shield needs to either recharge for a whole day or we need to block an energy based attack to instantly recharge the shield.

Unless you plan on getting all 3 of those things to fall into the same hole, this seems to be very risky.

No. 942595 ID: b1b4f3

Oh the spikes got destroyed? Nevermind then, we'd have to try using the beartrap instead to lower their numbers further and there are probably other monsters near that by now.

The spikes only got destroyed in the 1 pitfall trap >>941188 . We still have a second pitfall trap with spikes at the bottom.

Your plan can still work, I'm just saying that it's going to be risky to try and get all 3 of the monsters to fall into the 1 pitfall trap we still have.

There are 4 Pitfall traps around the base, and only one's spikes are broken. As it stands, trying to leash the monsters into the pits is a decent course of action. If not a bit dangerous that is.

They used Sapphires to tell the Water elemental what to do.
I wonder what it's reaction to moonstone would be. Maybe it would have been helpful.

Vermilion wings a dagger at one of the Nargandrs to try and lure only one. The instant it's hit it lets out a shrill shriek alerting the other nargandrs and pulling all of their attention towards Vermilion.

> Let's try luring them into traps
Vermilion quickly slithers away from the and tries to lead them into traps, the Nargandrs are MUCH faster than he is. Luckily he manages to outmaneuver two of them and lead them into traps, one of them falls in completely while the other only half way falls in, not dead but still unable to get out. Vermilion looks around for the last one but can't see where it went...

Arrayan, Jordy, and Sprite notice that the banging on the Grotto door has stopped, and that a whole bunch of other noise has replaced it. Arrayan and Sprite cautiously peak out of the front door to see Vermilion confronting a Nargandr.

Alright! Killed one and got another one stuck! We can finish of the stuck one by pushing it into the hole, just like we did with that first one earlier in the day!

>>942667
>Vermilion’s alive!
>Not for long!
Quick! Someone grab the Crossbow and shoot the Nargandr! With the Crossbow’s Long Shot Weapon Trait, it can ignore 2 FG if you shoot an enemy from a long range, which is where that Nargandr is right now!

Then rush in to help Vermilion! You can get an explanation on what happened and where he went later!

Hmm, it looks like once we take care of these things, we should have almost everything needed to build the Heavenly Machina Etchanter!

>Sprite: Dash over there and dump several tonnes of MEDIUMS on its head.
Sprite's already said she can't use mediums offensively like that

>Ar: Crossbow that sucker to cancel it out of its attack animation!
Arrayan grabs the crossbow and shoots the Nargandr from range as he moves over. His leather armor doesn't help from a distance so it doesn't add to his FG, but the crossbow's still enough to beat out the Nargandr's FG especially since it ignores 2 FG at range. It hits but doesn't stop the Nargandr from attacking. Arrayan uses the rest of his GW to catch up to Vermilion.

>Jordy: Attack trapped Nargandr
Jordy rushes the trapped Nargandr and uses his boar club to attack it's legs. In the struggle he get's scratched, nothing serious but it's still damage. After he's done knocking it in he catches up with Vermilion.

>Vermilion: Use all your debuff items on it and defend
Vermilion tosses both his Frailty Draft and the Blaze Decoction. He braces for the Nargandr's attack The Nargandr's FG drops by 2 and it's BURNED

>Nargandr: Aggress
The Nargandr screeches and continues to attack it's primary target, Vermilion. It goes into a frenzy and attacks Vermilion three times. The damage for each attack is reduced due to Vermilion's Shelluk buckler, but it still hurts him. The Nargandr's burns hurt it as it moves.

The Nargandr shows no signs of slowing

Can anyone get on top of the thing and untie its bag? Or cut the rope? Or just pull the bag off? That might expose a weak point, weaken, or outright kill the thing.

Regardless, first priority is Arrayan protecting Verm.

>Could Sprite put down items during combat to create cover or deliver supplies?
The stone sprite stores still needs mortar to stay standing up, it'd take time that the team doesn't have to make cover. She can deliver supplies, as long as those supplies are MEDIUMS she can store.

>Sprite: Battle bard?
Sprite sings a little song, it helps no one but Sprite seems to enjoy it.

>Jordy: Use your Boar Club’s Concussive Weapon Trait to lower the Nargandr‘s FG by 1 for the duration of combat!
Though Jordy isn't really sure if the thing has a brain, he still knocks it in the "head" pretty hard. It's FG drops by 1 for the duration of the fight. Jordy uses the rest of his GW to attack.

>Vermilion: Get behind Arrayan and Jordy
Vermilion moves to the back-line and throws a couple of knives from his position, very few seem to do much to it and the few that do get a response only cause it to flinch. Jordy and Vermilion's efforts together still manage to hurt it

>Arrayan: use Pinpoint on the weak point that Vermilion’s Blaze Decoction just made!
The Blaze Decoction just applied burn, it didn't make a weak point. All pinpointing did was damage the Iron Spear... Arrayan uses his remaining GW to deal damage, but he can feel the spear's wood weaken with each hit.

>Nargandr: Assault
The Nargandr lurches over, instead of the usual loud screeches it's made, this time it lets out a low guttural growl. It's quiet, but anyone close enough can hear it. Arrayan and Jordy feel sick.

--BATTLE TENDENCIES--
DESPAIRS WHISPER: Damages and FEARS anyone that can hear it. (FEAR: Attacks deal less damage)

The Nargandr then lunges forward and manages to cut Arrayan with one of it's legs. Arrayan's BLEEDING (BLEED: Lose 1 PB each turn)

All of the movement aggravates the Nargandr's burns. Vermilion's Battle Tendency POTENT BREW causes both the BURN and the FG penalty to last for another turn! The Nargandr's beginning to sway a bit. It's getting worn down.

Welp, Jordy isn't gonna be doing much damage now in close range, and another whisper would take him out. He should back off and try using the crossbow (can he just take it off of Arrayan's toolbelt? Not sure if it's worth it to spend one of Ar's GW to hand it over)-- he's fast enough to get into a position where it'll do damage.

Vermillion should try to get some backstabs in to finish it off.
Ar should keep attacking, maybe switch to the partisan and Sweep on its legs to disable it if possible?

>All pinpointing did was damage the Iron Spear...

Not only is that completely unhelpful, but both of the dead Nargandrs are deep in pits and out of sight.

>Jordy: Take Crossbow, head to back-line
Arrayan holds out the Crossbow and it's ammo for Jordy to grab as he rushes away from the Nargandr. With all of his GW he's able to run to a long enough distance, load the Crossbow, and fire it at the Nargandr. The arrow doesn't hit it center mass, but it still leaves a decent cut.

Vermilion uses the Moss Poultice on Jordy, healing him back to full [PB].

The Nargandr's true visage is exposed. The sight of it's real form is too much to comprehend, time feels like it's slowing.
Vermilion FEARS the Nargandr

Though it's real visage is horrifying, the sheet was tough and absorbed a lot of damage. The Nargandr's [FG] is halved!

>Nargandr: Terrorize
The Nargandr rears back and screeches.
[TRUE FEAR]: All units with the FEARED Status take 2 damage

It then lunges forward and bites Arrayan. Though his shield manages to block some of the damage it still hurts, and so does the oozing wound Arrayan has. The Iron Horn Shield hurts the Nargandr as it tries to kill Arrayan.

Even with the haze of fear clouding their minds the party can still tell the burns are tormenting the Nargandr. Though it seems they're wearing off. Though intimidating, it's on it's last legs.

>Everyone: All out attack
The whole party descends on the Nargandr. Putting everything into their attacks despite their fear. Jordy fires two arrows from his position. Vermilion slashes away at the mass of flesh with his Mantis Knife, and Arrayan stabs the monster with his Iron Spear. The Nargandr lunges for Arrayan, who ducks beneath it and stabs the underside of the beasts with his spear (Which breaks in the action). The Nargandr writhes in pain before it's body explodes in a bloody mess.

After the monster is dead. Everybody takes a minute to breath.

Toxicologist

I guess collect everything and then get inside and do some first aid.
After that, I guess we need to to extract the broken haft from the Iron Spear head, sharpen it, carve and fire a new haft, and then attach it to the head.

At least we have something to do for the next couple hours.

Toxicologist.
I feel like we can make strong enough medicine already. Just gotta get more ingredients for it. Optimally we'd use the toxin specialty to coat all our weapons in deadly poison and heavily debuff everything we fight.

Loot the drops and get back inside immediately. The rest of the day should be spent recuperating. Verm should try to cook up some more healing items to help.

I'm thinking we should probably make Jordy a blacksmith. Unless we want to try to make our way to town and use theirs? I mean, I assume there's a town blacksmith.

Adrenaline rush and Toxicology seems like a safe bet. If we need more dedicated healing power, I'm sure we can find it later.

Also, wow, if that scales the way I think it does, then it looks like trolls make up for their piddly FG with metric f*ck-tons of PB. Primo tank role. Sprite, I take it [IDIOT SAVANT] gets replaced/locked in and can't be reassigned? If that's the case, we need to get Jordy on constructing stuff tomorrow; we'll need a dedicated builder if we're to advance any bases we make beyond the stone age any time soon.

But for now, get your asses back inside! That's enough excitement for one month. Then Vermillion can properly debrief. Speaking of (once we're inside and Vermillion's done talking); Sprite, is there a limit on how many dungeons there are? Like, is there exactly one dungeon in each area?

Alright! Make sure you guys pick up everything the Nargandr dropped, including the ones that fell into the pitfall traps! And don’t forget to pick up this Nargandr‘s sheet! You can probably make something from it.

Once you guys gather everything up, including any Throwing Knives and/or Crossbow Bolts that can be reused, get back in the Grotto and lock the door!

That’s when Vermilion can tell everyone about what happened after the undine dragged him under the lake.

Good idea. If losing it cut the Nargandr's FG in half, then it's gotta be pretty tough.

>Loot the battlefield
Sprite gets to work gathering what she can. All Nargandr's drop Bloodrock no matter what so the battlefield's lousy with the red stones. There's [x30] Bloodrock lying around and in the traps. The traps also have Emeralds [x9] lying in them and some weird bluish rocks that Vermilion quickly identifies as Lapis Lazuli [x4].

The main Nargandr everyone had fought dropped more golden trinkets. What looks like a holy symbol and more golden teeth, along with a golden locket that has a faded picture inside.

>Pick up Nargandr sheet
A few of the Nargandr's sheets had been reduced to tatters of cloth that can be taken, however they seem like regular pieces of cloth. No one's sure how it managed to defend the Nargandr's body so well. Regardless [x3] Scraps of Cloth are taken.

>Sprite, is there a limit on how many dungeons there are?
SPRITE: Dungeons? Not really, some Chunks might not even have dungeons to begin with, there aren't any real set numbers I know of.

Everybody retreats into the grotto, inside after a few minutes of resting and eating (-[x3]Round Fruit) Vermilion talks about where he's been and what he's found handing the map to the dragons blood to Arrayan, whose eye's light up like a kid who's woken up on Christmas day or whatever equivalent lizard people have. Along with the map Vermilion also hands the box of gold to Arrayan who very much appreciated having more gold.

What happens if we use an etchanter to etch "Heavenly Machina" On the side of a former Etchanter?

Verm, explain that you don't know what possessed you to swallow that moonstone. Then just blame it on the eclipse. There's also a possibility that it was from the stress of being kidnapped and taken away to an unknown location and that made you do that.

Wait, how did Vermilion do that? If he ate a Round Fruit, then shouldn’t he have spat that out first before the Moonstone?

Also, now that the Moonstone isn’t taking up room in his stomach, he might still be a little hungry and need to eat some more.

I’d like to imagine that Arrayan will be wearing all of the gold before he lets it be used to make the Etchanter.

>Can we make the Etchanter now?
SPRITE: We almost can! We've only got [x11] WOOD and [x40] STONE and we're out of Iron too!. We need [x150] WOOD, [x200] STONE first, and [x15] IRON to make it. Once we have the components I'll help with building it so don't worry too much about that part.

>Did Sprite add all of those papers Vermilion collected to her Codex? Is she able to translate any of them?
SPRITE: What isn't completely illegible is a bunch of chemistry mumbo jumbo. Vermilion you might want to study some of this later to learn more!

>Let's try making a bloodstone spear.
The bloodstone doesn't make a good material to make a spear out of. It can't be knapped well like stone can, and it's too brittle to make an effective weapon out of. It must have another use though, it'd be insult to injury if enemies as strong as the Nargandr dropped mostly trash materials.

>Did we get the broken spear head?
Arrayan picked it back up.

>Let's just try to hunker down and get to know each other better for the rest of the day.

Telling stories about life before the GigaChunk? Demonstrating talents or non-trade-related hobbies?
We could probably carve some wood into cards for card games (though anything that requires hiding cards would eventually be infeasible since the card backs won't be identical)

Does the bloodstone melt at all, for alloying? If not maybe we can crush it into powder for alchemy.

If we have anything to write on (like the pages in the blank section of a Codex) we could pass the time trying to put together a map of what areas we've explored so far, including the locations of points of interest we've investigated. (We'll want something to help us decide a direction when we're finally out of the "finding our footing" phase of this new life.) I'd like to eventually complete the map of this chunk before moving on to any others. Have Vermillion and Jordy contribute what they traversed before we found them. Sprite, how does one tell the difference between a chunk border and a regular old biome transition? (We should use a colored line to represent the former, for clarity.)
