Revenge in the Dark Jungle: The Spider-Chopper!
April 19, 2011
You enter the territory of the Giant Daddy Longlegs. The flashing lights of the will-o-the-wisp cast thin shadows at the edge of your visions…the shadows of the many Longlegs. You know they are out there, excited by the scent of your bloody wounds, but they are deathly patient and won’t reveal themselves until you’ve entered their trap.
You, of course, are vigilant of the danger and aware of their strengths and weaknesses. Finally, the Longlegs cannot resist the smell of your sweet blood any longer…
You let the Longlegs grab and pin you like a birdcage, but as the spherical body descends to prick you with its poison (the most deadly poison in the jungle, it is said), you attempt to free your arm from its grip…

You unsheathe your machete and chop its body open like a ripe watermelon. You roll away as it screeches and twitches in ear-splitting agony.
With reluctant fear, the other Longlegs let the Spider-Chopper pass through their territory. Once through, you search for the Bat marauders.

You have found their trail, and determine they are within earshot. You scream:
“I am the Monkey-Impaler! Mud-Sleeper! Water-Rider! Cat-Flyer! Cliff-Tickler! Spider-Chopper!
“NOW I WILL BECOME THE BAT KILLER!”
Judging from the fresh sign, you determine there are six warriors in the Bat war party. Choose:
Walk right into their camp and kick some ass.
Climb up into the canopy and silently ambush them from above.
