"Here's what I think could happen.:"

A) We fight these creatures- which means we'll probably end up fighting this guardian.

or

B) These creatures don't fight us, and the guardian probably won't either.

"If it's A, I want to save my consumables for the guardian, which will no doubt be a harder fight. If B, I waste no consumables, and I still have them for a later battle."

"We should carry on. We should make our presense clear so they do not attack us as a defensive instinct. *Animal talk* Hello creatures, we are heroes of heroica, friends of nature. We wish to speak to you. *animal talk * "

Sylph walked over to where his bat saw the eyes. "If you be Guardians of the forest, or residence of it, then you need not fear us. I am a druid, leader of this party. Please, show yourselves."

Punii, 2 month year old Progg Alchemist

Jellies: Green x3, Blue x2, Red x1

Sylph finds no sign of any of the Murkwoodian spiders - in presence, at any rate. However, they do respond to their calls. The party can't pinpoint the source of the voices, but they hear their faint words quite clearly.

"You burnt our web. A minor offense, but beware... Any further damage to this place and you'll find yourself withering away..."

"Heroes of Herocia you may be, but friends of nature your organization is not. One of your leader constantly rampages here, stealing our family, our friends, our loved ones. Why? Who knows."

"We have no quarrels with you in particular... yet. But you do not yet deserve audience with us. The Murkwood holds trials aplenty... complete them and perhaps we will consider resuming this conversation. Adieu."

And with that, the voices and their sources vanish. The party proceeds down the clearing, looking at the surroundings. The forest seems to grow more and more twisted the deeper in you go. Dead and withering treees surround them on all sides: and some bizzare cured ones. The air grows heavy.

Suddenly, a piercing shriek is heard - Morxes! As they were walking along the rascally little spider must've gone ahead and fell in a ditch. Lyrol pulls him back up with his thread. The little eight-legged creature is shaken.

qlIEf.png

"Beds of thorns were at the bottom of that pit! This entire field must be boobytrapped!"

Trial of the Murkwood

l1206.png

-You start South of the board.

-Each stud represents a space.

-Red spaces have been confirmed to be boobytrapped.

-Green spaces are safe spaces.

-Black spaces are undetermined.

-You must find a path leading safely to the other side.

-Landing in a pit will drop you insantly to 1 HP. Morxes and Lyrol will pull you out, though, returning you to the start.

-There is no fixed way of determining which space is what. get creative and find the safe spaces!

What will the party do?

"Hmm. I think we need to split. We're seven with Punii, nine if we count the spiders. I don't suppose there's any need for all us to fall in a pit together?

Actually, what if Morxes and Lyrol went ahead and scouted a save passage for us?"

Galen thought back to the faint voices.

"It would seem that you were right, Johon. A veteran is raiding this forest for... spiders? What in the name of Zoot would the Dragon Lord need spiders for? It's puzzling. I wonder if we might run into him, while we're here?"

Spiders. :hmpf:

"Right. What if one falls twice in a pit, can they become KO?" asks Galen to no one in particular.

"We could also throw rocks or any heavy object ahead of us and see if the ground yields."

"Yes."

Galen looks on the ground for anything suitable for throwing (besides Punii).

"I guess there's always our equipment... :look: But I wouldn't want to be caught half-naked in an ambush in the middle of this field."

Wait a minute...

"Punii, you're a Progg... Surely your shell would protect you from the thorns?"

Sylph drew his sickle and prodded the ground before him (A7), hard.

"I suggest we prod the ground before us with our weapons." Sylph sighed to the party.

Alex: Prod A9

(OoC: The scroll I read makes things Badly Poisoned, and It costs 5 ether, so I should be at 8 ether. Also, I equipped the goggles, which should make my max. ether 20. I also healed myself, so I should have full health. Also, I drank the trial potion, so my max ether should be 10, and my max. health should be 16.)

The party pokes and prods with their weapons, but are unable to truly determine what space was what. They needed more force... Johon takes out his shovel and rips one of the fake ground pieces right off of the pit it was concealing. A twisted mass of purple and green thorns sit at the bottom. They look mighty sharp...

Perhaps they'd be able to expedite the process somehow?

"Well done Johon! If a shovel does the trick, I'm sure a pickaxe will too. I'll just be careful not lose my balance."
