"Catch it," Xiong Fan will hiss through clenched teeth. He does not fire, but holds the arrow drawn.

OOC: If hold actions are allowed until later in initiative, Fan will hold. If not he will pass his action for the round.

Gronk had never been a hard character to read, usually his grunts and grumblings were just different degrees of displeasure. But even though he didn't make a sound a blind man could have read the look on his face after Xiong Fan's last statement.

It said "Are you frackin' insane" to anyone who cared to look his way.

Selsdrin did his best to kill it with sword and buckler. A slash with the longsword and a smash with his buckler. Gut it and squish it! He thought.

Malek saw the look; his face reflected the exact same expression.

The half-orc shook away the thought and scanned their surroundings in case there were other...whateverthefrackthatwas...around, just in case, while trying to keep track of the current threat.

Selsdrin speared the worm on the end of his sword. It writhed there, flexing its jaws and trying to reach him.

Finally, it was still.

Rooker, make a Wisdom check, DC 12. Give yourself a +2 bonus on top of level and ability score.

Selsdrin looked, stern-faced at the still thing at the end of his sword and asked what, to him, was the obvious question. "Does anyone have any oil and some fire? There may be more of these things., and this thing could be pregnant."

Rooker started, then shook his head. He looked to his comrades briefly, then at the worm. He relaxed somewhat, but kept a wary eye about.

"Scholar Fan, perhaps you may derive some value from examining the creature's body? Admittedly, it is not the same as having a live specimen, but it need not be a total loss."

Selsdrin kept his face carefully calm and considered. If this thing kept to the normal ecology of similar parasites, it would be constantly hungry, and, after feeding, would want to lay eggs. The worst possible scenario would be a live birth, when hundreds or thousands of miniature versions of the mother might come squirming out of the carcass, just as hungry.

He made his decision.

"Oil and fire? Anyone? Three seconds, then it goes right back in the pit. One..."

"If Fan wishes to examine it, I suggest he does so quickly," Malek rumbled, freeing his whip from redshirt's lifeless arm. "Then we do as Selsdrin suggests and burn it. I don't like the idea of bringing it back to the Fire Rose only to have it spawn hungry babies on a water-bound larder full of sailors. And us."

He wound the whip up and slipped it over the hook on his belt; at least his 'toy' kept the half-elf from using his weapon. He wondered if whateverthefrackitwas was controlling the boy, and/or if it would have been able to bring harm using the poor sod's body against them.

With a nod to the others, he went to look at the other bodies - at a hopefully reasonable distance - to see if there were any other of those abominations crawling around. He also scanned the area for the makings of a pyre. A big one...

"Two..." Seldrin tilted his head to keep the thing and the scholar in view. He tightened his muscles for the effort it would take to return it to the pit and far away from him.
