Opponent Encounter Text Notes
coffee.jpg HelicopterDrone.jpg
Wandering the beach, you see a flicker of red light against the dark waves. Looking back towards its source, you see a compact flying drone bearing down on you in complete silence.
Eclipse.jpg flying-eye.jpg
As you wander the beach, you're surprised to hear the sound of wings. You haven't seen so much as a seagull since you got here.

Glancing up, you see something much more disturbing than a seagull looking back down.
The ground collapses underneath you, spilling you into a sinkhole where writhing tentacles and a beaked maw await.

You've gained 1 energy of In a Pit
Eclipse.jpg GrossSerpent.jpg
As you make your way along the beach, you hear a terrible roar. When you glance in its direction, a massive serpent rises out of the water.

Slime rolls off it in strange patterns that… you should probably think about that more later, as the serpent intends to make a snack out of you.
Eclipse.jpg UnsewnZombie.jpg
As you make your way along the beach, a massive blast of sand rains down on you. A corpse, its eyes lit with rage, pulls itself from its sandy tomb and rushes you. Only when a servant of the mask. It will still come back even after killing it.
