"It brings attention from bad people.  People the boss doesn't want snooping around."

"Well... maybe we can work together to stop those people from snooping, if they're the real problem."

"Can they at least act scared?  Todd can't go back without scaring them."

Elf leader:  "Eek."

"I think we can do better, guys.

Oh fuck! A giant spider! RUN!"


Yylris runs about 150 feet back to some trees to fake hiding, looking back to see if the other elves and Ashgar follow.

Ashgar decides that punching this thing isn't what Ylris wants so he flies up into a tree.

If others follow, "Sorry, guys, but I don't think we can deal with all of Todd's friends. We might have to find a way to work with them, as weird as that is. At least he seems way more... reasonable than I would have expected."

"He's mentally deficient is what he is."

Todd looks proud.

"Yeah, but I don't think he's lying. Do you think the group can fend off that many spiders?"

"No...the bad of it is, I need permission to make any deals from further up the chain, and it's nearing harvest time.  They aren't going to want to do anything till then.  I need to send word back to the head of the group and ask what to do.  We just need to convince the spiders to not kill us before they reply."

Yylris yells over to Todd, and starts walking back: "Hey, Todd, there's a big harvest coming up. I think if they can get that done, they might be more willing to relocate, or come up with some other solution.

Do you or your boss have anything you might need help with in the mean time? I'm a bit of a problem-solver myself, and maybe we can reach some good middle ground where everyone is happy."

Ashgar asks, "What if we make you gone instead?"

Yylris is losing patience with Todd's willingness to find any middle ground, but he's also worried about how bad the response will be. He shrugs, and looks to Ashgar the rest of the group.

"I tried, but I don't have any other ideas. Shall we?"

"Shall we....punch?" Ashgar asks, hoping that's what Ylris was asking about.

"Shit, this could go either way.  Best we contact our boss, have him go back to his boss, and let them negotiate.  We're farmers, not mercenaries."

"Fair enough...

They have to talk to their boss, Todd. Either way, you scared them out of this area for now."

"Well...okay I guess.  I may have to come back though."

You aren't sure how a giant spider the size of an elephant skips away, but he manages.

The Elves: "Fuuuuuuck..."

"Yeah, this isn't good. It sounds like there's a lot of them. How long until the harvest comes in? Sadly, any types of barriers and defenses I can think of can just be climbed over by spiders.

I don't know any type of illusion magic that could be handy in hiding the area or making fake, scary-looking allies."

"We can start harvesting some now, but  all the fields won't be ready for a week.  I think they intend to chase us out to take the fields for themselves.  I can't have that, my people would starve.  If the boss comes here...well she has a reputation for violence.  And we can't ask the Sheriff to interfere because he'd arrest us all."
