Revenge in the Dark Jungle: “Are you all right?” “Sure, sure, I got a fine horse under me!”

April 8, 2011

Knocking the helmet off, you are able to resurface above water momentarily and gasp for breath.  Still, something holds you down in the mud.

Only a contortionist could free himself from these bindings.  Stuck all day with only your neck above the water, you fend off snakes and insects with your hands, grabbing some as snacks.  Towards evening, a log floats by and you grab a hold.  This enables you to catch some sleep.

In the morning you find yourself sleeping comfortably on the log, your body free from the mud.  You have no recollection of what or if happened during the night.  You continue your journey and later in the day reach the edge of the swamp.  Searching for any sign of the Bat war party…

You pick up their trail but discover that they are still five days ahead of you.  The night you spent stuck in the mud prevented you from making up any ground.

Which shortcut will you take now?

Through the territory of an unpredictable tribe of natives called the Red Fish.
…or…
Build a small raft and brave the rapids of Spindle River.

    Unpredictable natives! No way. I don’t want my shrunken head adorning their crude waistbands. Let’s build a raft.
