Jungle of Lost Souls: The Accidental Cough
February 10, 2011
You attempt to communicate with the natives, using a simple shared language of common words and hand signs. The natives can take offense at even seemingly innocent things. Establishing trust with them sometimes feels like just a matter of luck, at least until the vagaries of their psyche is better understood.
(Luck Saving Roll failed, Jungle Lore Saving Roll Failed)
Things seem to be going well at first, but then one of your men accidentally coughs, triggering an aggressive response from the natives. They start shouting in an unknown dialect and seven more natives materialize out of the bushes to the left and right of the expedition. They all point their bows at the expedition and begin to pull back on the strings, yelling in wild commotion.
Surrender, Flee, or Fight?
