Revenge in the Dark Jungle: Prelude to Revenge

April 21, 2011

You grab hold of a slack vine and chop a nearby taut vine with your machete.  There is a groaning of tree limbs and, like a pulley system, the vine in your grip begins to tighten and then rise up into the jungle canopy, taking you with it.  There in the canopy you see bizarre plants and animals.  Strange varieties of monkeys, having never seen a beast such as you, curiously approach with wide eyes and poking sticks.  You growl and scare them away.

It’s been months since you’ve seen the sun, so you climb high enough in the canopy to absorb some unfiltered rays as you climb, swing, and jump your way to above the camp of the Bat war party.  The brightness of the sun stings your eyes, but it also invigorates you and aids in healing your wounds.

They are on high alert, having heard your earlier warning.  But they aren’t looking up.  Examining the six warriors, you notice that one of them wears the necklace of blue beads that you had given to your slain wife.  He seems to be the leader, the largest of build and wielding a black bow and bone hatchet.  The rest of the warriors carry shields and spears.

(Successful Luck saving roll)

You are lucky to spot a sentry with a bow, perched half way up a tree trunk directly below you.

Try to eliminate the sentry first.
…or…
Create a diversion, in hopes of isolating the leader.
…or…
Swing on a vine through the camp, chopping heads.

    Cut off the head, and the rest follows. I think that’s how the quote goes. No, it’s cut off the head and the tail will soon follow. No, cut off the head and the body will fall apart.

    Ah, raspberries. What I’m trying to say is kill the leader and the rest is easy. So, I’m picking option 2. Kill the leader.
