    A1. And share bacon with our new friends. Greasy food can help us stay sober and drink longer.

    lost the thread so I'll substitute TSR Marvel Heroes rules....

    rolled a 71...my Fighting check passed so I successfully jerked off Doctor Octopus.

    Carry on.

    It might work. Or it might kill him. Let's try!

    The vatnik gobbles down a fatty gob but the drunkswede shakes his head and downs another glass.

    [​IMG]
    You gulp down a jug of Grecian wine--bottled sunshine from the Euxine. Your head spins about. You open your pack, uncork one of the imp's vials and empty the contents into the lizzurd's mouth. It remains still for a moment, thrashes violently and snaps upright. Its head pivots to face you and its eyes gleam.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The drunkswede collapses into an unconscious stupour. The lizzurd fixes his rubbery lips to a keg and sucks out the fluid in a single disgustingly long slurp. Its knees wobble. You give it another vial. The creature sways. You push a third vial down its throat. With a wobble, it falls upon another keg.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    You polish off another bottle. The lizzurd has fallen upon its belly, licking at the spilled contents of a wineskin. It has consumed all but one of the vials. The drunkswede's snores rumble over the stones. Your visions blurs and seems to show two of everything. You crawl across the floor to drag back more bottles. Your brain aches like a hammered anvil. The hourglass has almost ran out.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Your hand skids off the table as you try to push the vial towards your companion. Suddenly, the lizzurd erupts into a piercing scream. His flesh bubbles over like a pot of boiling water, engorging to four times his natural size. Spikes burst from his skin like harpoons. Rheumy eyes blink open at all of his joints. Its sides tears in half to form a gaping mouth with thousands of needle-like teeth.

    [​IMG]

    The abomination lurches towards the table, totters and crumbles down to the stones. Not quite still, parts of it still seem to pulse. It begins to purr or perhaps to snore. The last grains begin trickling through the hourglass.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    action (open)

    (1) Drink it yourself!
    (2) Force it down the drunkswede's throat. (Good luck getting him to swallow.)
    (3) Force it into some orifice of what used to be the lizzurd. (Meaning you'll have to get close to a creature covered in barbs, fangs, tentacles and assorted prosperous whatnots.)
    (4) Overwhelm the vatnik and force him to drink the vial. Maybe he's more drunk than you.
    (5) Crawl as far from the portcullis as possible, keep quiet, and hope the monster won't notice you after eating everything else.

    3. If we drink it ourselves we'll pass out, and Mercantile will get to fulfill his homoerotic fantasies on our defenseless buttcheeks.

    Clever but you've no way of starting a fire.


    You approach the twisted form of what was once a lizzurd. A barbed tentacle wafts about like the tail of a sleeping cat. The last grain trickles through the neck of the hourglass. You trip over a fleshy sail-fin onto the rubbry blubber of the abomination. It huffs. You straighten up and try to determine which of the various openings might connect to the thing's digestive tract (if it has one.) A clanking of gears and rattle of chains echoes over the stones. The portcullis creaks open a foot and then stops. Hot breath seeps out from the darkness, clearing your head considerably. The portcullis jerks up another foot. You shove the last vial into a slimy orifice on the abomination, which contracts about your hand! You thrash about but cannot shake loose. Some cartilage like appendage snakes its way about your leg. The portcullis groans up another foot. Unable to contain your horror, you shriek like a small girl.

    The appendage contracts about your leg. With a sound like snapping ropes, your bone shatters in a dozen successive places. The moisture about your hand simmers into acid, burning off your fingers. The tentacle whips about and rips off your other arm as easily as a child pulling the wings from a moth. Your blood spills out in an arterial shower as you erupt into a rising scream that crescendos in blackness.

    ***​

    [​IMG]
    Your eyes blink open. There is a small cell stacked with corpses of various ripeness and skittering with ants. The stench almost knocks you back out. Directly before you stands a man caked in dung and clad in garments of sewn human flesh. His teeth are blackened and a number have fallen out. He leers.

    [​IMG]
    The dung-man stabs you with the blunt edge of an old broomstick. It jams up between your intestines, scraping against the inner edge of your ribs. The pain convulses and you glance down.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    He takes a bite out of a long strip of raw meat and smacks his lips. Then, he places three glass canisters swirling with a green gas into a satchel.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    He grabs the broom and hoists you up. You can roll your shoulders and turn your neck but the lack of limbs hampers your other movements. The dung-man pokes you out through the doorway.

    [​IMG]
    He rotates the broom. The passageway seems to spin. A faint motion sickness troubles your stomach.

    [​IMG]
    The dung-man carries you to the left. He passes down the hall with light steps and then pokes your eyes into the next room. You behold two men supplicated before a painted cyclopean idol. A voice booms out from the idol.

    [​IMG]
    The kneeling supplicants glance at each other.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The dung-man yanks you back into the hall. He lowers his voice to the barest whisper.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The dung-man sets you against the wall like a broom in a cupboard and hefts the glass canisters.

    [​IMG]

    Trust Kodeks to politick over the two worst possible options. Anyway:

    (1) Keep silent.
    (2) Call out a warning!

    2 We must not let this madm(eme)an destroy the only order this fallen place knows. Besides, Crispy's patron helped us out that one time, so why not now? Let us betray this betrayal before we remain the dungman's onahole for too much longer.
