Your Move, Mammal



Encounter Conditions

Have flooded the Abandoned Subway from the antiquated-monitors

Initial Text

You take your time following the flooded trench. Even with the raw sewage, it's still nicer than a lot of Metros terminals.

Periodically the floor writhes under your feet, but never with the strength of purpose that would send your hurtling into the trench. Which is just as well really, because that pale shape floating in the water probably isn't an old couch or long-forgotten log.

The thing's red eyes watch you patiently, waiting for you to make the first move.

Choice Text and Results

Provoke it

It doesn't take much more than approaching near the water's edge to get the crocodile's attention. It bursts forward to the water's edge, pulling itself half onto shore to get you within range of its snapping jaws.


Wrestle it

With sufficient strength? I had 38

Dive in

You dive in past the crocodile. It doesn't seem bothered by you jumping in… in fact, it heads the other direction with a prodigous burst of speed.

Sensing it probably didn't run because it's afraid of you, you cautiously glance back. Three serpentine lengths of metal sway their way out of the water, one crackling with energy and the others grinning down at you with teeth of glass. Well, damn.
