Due to the emergency, Cormorant yells over to Sprthnt and Kuwaia, because they would otherwise not know the situation. “Cina has been ambushed!” Already holding his two hammers, since he carries them all of the time, he runs to her aid, augmenting his strength as he goes.

Now that she is becoming an archer, Britta changes her previous tactic and moves forward more slowly, taking aim with her bow. “Go! Go. I will try to keep you covered.” She suddenly realizes that she can mystically enhance her visual acuity to increase the accuracy of her shots.

It does not matter who or what might be the cause. Sprthnt and Kuwaia immediately run toward the location of Cina. Sprthnt enahnces his motility and Kuwaia her athletic skill, as they run. Sprthnt readies the javelin in his right hand to throw it. He yells back, “We are coming to you!”

Because they are able to reach their full speed, Sprthnt and Kuwaia arrive near Cina just as quickly as Cormorante. Unfortunately there are three other male spiders hiding in wait, which launch themselves before the other can come to their new friend’s assistance. They must now deal with their own attacker. Britta is currently the only one not under attack, but firing an arrow at any one of the spiders is highly likely to hit a friend, instead.

Cormorante, Sprthnt, and Kuwaia are all surprised by their spider ambush, and each now has a spider on his torso, biting into bare flesh and injecting venom. The spider on Cina continues to cause her harm. Despite her significant weakness, Cina grabs two of the spider’s legs and spins her body half around as she flings the spider away. It flies through the air a full 13 strides out into the scrub. when it hits the ground it can no longer move.

Unfortunately, the thoughts of rescue have to be abandoned. Cormorant drops his hammers and grabs ahold of the spider that is on him. With his strength, he plans to slam it to the ground while keeping ahold. Sprthnt grips his javelins, knowing he cannot throw one. He bares his teeth. “Get off of me, you vile creature!” Being more mystically tuned than physically, Sprthnt generates sonic vibration in hopes of shaking the spider apart.

Kuwaia, despite the trauma, is not prone to emotional responses. She lets go of the sword in her left hand, grabs one of the spider’s legs with that hand, spins her body in a counter gyre and hopes to fling the spider away. Knowing that she has been subjected to the venom, she also, instinctively, tries to mystically nullify it.

Britta has no desire to attempt firing next to one of her friends. Not knowing the fate of the spider that Cina threw from her, she takes aim to shoot it.

Because she has already drawn her bow and only needs to adjust her aim, Britta fires her arrow before anything else happens. It is an excellent shot, punching straight through the chitinous body of the spider. It twitches a few times and then ceases moving. The other spiders, which are still on their victims, flex their fangs and continue to inject venom. Cormorante, Sprthnt, and Kuwaia take further damage, but all can still function.

Kuwaia then immediately flings her spider about 8 strides from her body, in almost the same direction that Cina had. She is also able to nullify the venom, so that it causes her no further harm. Cormorante rips the spider from him and slams it onto the ground so hard that its body breaks open. Before Sprthnt can try to remove his spider, Brenda readies and fires a second arrow. This one at the spider that Kuwaia had flung away. It strikes as true as her first, pinning the second spider to the ground. The images of Sprthnt and his spider then begin to vibrate. The image of Sprthnt clears in a second but the spider continues to shake for a few more. It falls from Sprthnt’s body, twitching on the ground, unable to regain its footing. Sprthnt stabs it with his javelin until it quits twitching. Cina, like Kuwaia, is able to nullify the venom. Unfortunately, the venom has already paralyzed her, and the others see her collapse.

Kuwaia, who was late to come into her talent to manipulate waylines, is now the only one who can negate the venom in the others who were bitten, since Cina is paralyzed. She checks on Cina first, not knowing her predicament, next goes to Sprthnt, then Cormorant, using the same process that she had on herself while touching them. Cormorante and Sprthnt, if they are able, will help themselves and others to physically recover. Britta will see if she can retrieve her arrows and make sure that the spiders are dead. She will then drag the carcasses back toward the others.

Kuwaia senses that Cina is no longer under a threat from the venom, though she would need mystical aid to recover from the paralysis. She quickly helps with this then moves to Sprthnt. Not all of the spiders are actually dead, so Britta stabs them all with her javelin, just to make sure, then carries them two at a time back near where Cina is laying on the ground.

Sprthnt succumbs to the venom before Kuwaia is able to negate it, but Cormorante maintains his strength to move about. Despite being paralyzed, Sprthnt and Cina are able to mystically aid in their own recovery. Cormorante and Kuwaia help everyone and what would have required seasons is reduced to a matter of hours.

Spiders this large are edible, at least their legs are, and Britta removes their fangs before throwing the carcasses on the coals of the campfire.

Once he recovers and is able to move about, Sprthnt will definitely eat some of the cooked spider, then intends to determine if their fangs harbor any mystical potential, since Britta thought to conserve them.The party will continue moving southward the next day, if everyone has recovered.

Sprthnt is able to determine that each pair of spider fangs can augment physical movement (Motility +3) and the impetus for the physical function and intellectual cognizance (Cohesion +3) if carried by anyone in the party, but there are only four of them and five members.

Two more days of walking brings the party to a larger cluster of scrub acorn trees and a better supply of water coming out of the heights of the mountains. During the first day, Cormorante follows the sound of raptor cries to discover the location of an aerie. It is at a height and in a location, as such raptor nests tend to be, that it would be extremely difficult if not completely impossible to reach. The party can enjoy watching the golden eagle pair tend their nest but there is no reason to attempt to disturb it.

Of a more particular significance, Britta, Sprthnt, and Kuwaia, each come across a sunning pod of iguanids, all from a different direction. At the distance that they are seen and the fact that they are sunning, they can easily be avoided. If approached, it is a guarantee that they will attack. Visually distinguished from ordinary lizards by having a frill ridge down their backs and sometimes around their necks, like a collar, iguanids are smaller than lizards of the same age but have larger teeth. They appear to be two breeding pairs and are each about the size of a person.

Even though Britta had not been ambushed by a spider, Cormorant wants her to have the spider fangs that he should claim, because she is more suited to their proclivity than he. Each of the others keeps the pair. Britta motions for Cormorant to move in when the iguanids are discovered. “Do you want to attack those?” He asks quietly.

Britta shrugs and looks at the others. Sprthnt responds, “While those skins should be quite valuable, I cannot see wasting that much meat. If it were just one lizard, I would suggest it but not with four. I say we give them their space and move on.”

Cina agrees. “I like your thinking on this. That would be too much meat to waste, if we could take all four. As big as they are, I doubt any would run from us.”

The party circumnavigates the sunning lizards and continues into the cluster of trees.

As the party begins entering the cluster of stunted acorns Britta happens to feel compelled to kick around the base of one of the trees, discovering an opaque green stone with flecks or streaks of semi-translucent lighter green running through it. As Cormorante is already carrying one of these it is recognized as a piece of Jade which will augment total physical power (Strength +3) and the impetus for resilience and vitality (Confluence +3) for anyone in the party. Before reaching the water source against the rise of the mountains, Britta also uncovers a bright, red, opaque stone with flecks of semi-translucent yellow running through it.

As the party recognizes the sound of trickling water which draws them to the source for the growth of the trees, Sprthnt hears the sound and Kuwaia smells the distinct identification of a small herd of swine. As the signals pass to the others, everyone can recognize the discovery in his own way. Swine can be dangerous to hunters but generally this is only when they are in larger numbers or if approached at night.
