    You descend into the magic hole.

    Bloomstar has set up what could, if you were feeling generous, be described as a pulley system. Most of the girlz are at the top level, slowly lowering your riding beetle by a loop of silk around its midsection. It's a lot nicer than falling.

    Your beetle flails its legs. Eventually it comes into contact with the ground.

    The worm isn't here. There are a few spots on the walls that might be collapsed tunnels, though.

    You untie your beetle and give the rope a tug, and it disappears up the magic hole. Soon after, the girlz start to lower Bloomstar.

    You move away from the landing area.

    Bloomstar and Twinkle make it down safely, and Moonbubble and Flitter descend in one trip, a bit more quickly due to their lighter weight.

    There isn't any obvious way to proceed. You can see the edges of the cavern. The entire thing is only about twice the width of the original magic hole.

    Once things are relatively secure, the beetles can just stay down here, for defense and earth moving (if more digging is on the agenda)
    We should work on getting something built so beetles can climb up from the hole under their own power.

    I say we abandon chasing after this thing, especially if it's gone into its tunnels. We're not underground creatures; we almost ate it, and that was on out terms; open space. If we face what's essentially a tube of muscular, cartligenous stomach the size of a subway train on its own turf, it will fuck us mercilessly.

    We need to lure it out.

    Y to hunt.
    Bloomstar with halberd on beetle, she shouldn't lose her Regen riding. And neither should Twinkle, so she could ride too, and use halberd.

    Twitter and Wibble should be on foot, casting nets and curses.

    Flitter and Moonbubble can ride the last beetle, firing and resupplying arrows, and dismounting to send the beetle into combat if needed.

    Trixie is scout, with a spear. Is a spear easier on the sparkles than halberd? Maybe we can give a buckler to someone.

    PS: Can faeries even learn without sparkles? We're certainly born with the ability to speak, move, dance, and even kill our oodmates for survival.

    PPS: Imma' drawin' Bloomstar, but Twinkle almost got no personality. Admit it, Narrator, you like Bloom for her pixel hair.

    Your minions dig. It's fairly easy. The ground has been broken up recently. After they get a few inches in, the surface they're digging into begins to shift and fall apart on its own. One squeaks. They both jump back. This was the correct decision.

    You pierce the worm, and your beetles bite. WIth some difficulty, you communicate the idea of walking backwards, and your beetles, leaning back and straining, pull it off.

    The worm tries to thrash away from you, but it is more or less pulled tight.

    okay, keep on pulling. we don't want it to get away.

    and now seems like a good time to dismount the halbrediers, the beetles just have to keep pulling and don't need riders to communicate that.

    we dismount and take positions on the side of the thing, and then wait until it's more pulled out.

    The worm is clearly outmatched in sheer pulling power, though it is clearly still struggling. The beetles have a little bit of trouble with the idea of backwards, and start to turn in the proper direction, draggin the worm behind them.

    There's an arrow sticking out of the worm's center.

    is this the same worm we fought? CONVENIENT

    Flay along the sides in neat lines with your halbreds. You sort of just have to stick the thing in and walk forwards while the beetles pull backwards, and physics does all the heavy lifting for you.

    Also, this has the advantage of getting the preperation of worm leather under way before the worm even dies
    >> Questor the Magnificent 11/06/11(Sun)03:28 No.16856122
    Stab it, while the beetles pull. Don't make to big of cuts that it cuts in half. Just stab it, make it feel pain. It will die a slow, and painful death.

    You drag your halberd through the worm's tightened body.

    The worm springs out of the hole. The worm isn't built for this maneuver, and your halberds keep you at a safe distance. Bloomstar takes the worst of it, but she moves in once more to fight.

    You secure the worm and order it to be pulled up. This fails, so you evacuate the magic hole, have the BEETLES pull the worm up, and then dangle it over the magic hole and wait for all of the blood to fall out.

    Worms also have a series of circular cartilaginous rings that support the shape of their body. This material could probably be re-purposed for elastic bands, maybe even armor, if cured properly. And since it's a bigger worm than usual, the stuff will probably be thicker/heaver.

    That's the problem with blunt weapons. At least they can be made into whips. It'll have range and most hatchlings probably have low DR anyway.

    Also, armors! Though I don't think worm leather is... Fashionable. Imagine the stench of the tannery. I hope the stench isn't magical.

    Maybe someone else needs to be doing the thinking. I think it was mentioned faeries do because they believe they can, and thus they succeed.

    Twinkle pretends to be a worm and chases hatchlings, but loses interest when she realizes they don't growl, and she doesn't know what sounds they do make.

    If there are more (hopefully different, since I get the impression we smelled the worm before) magic smells to dig to, we should dig a staircase/ramp into the wall of the cave up to the surface so we don't have to winch the beetles down every time, and it would allow for easier escape for hatchlings on digging duty.

    You pick two fairies who aren't doing anything and glare until they let you lower them into the magic hole. They weren't in any hurry to enter it, but they wanted to say no to you even less.

    Bloomstar is staring at two scraps of worm skin. She spends a few minutes tying the two in various knots, then untying them and trying again. Then she smacks herself on the forearm with one of the scraps several times and sighs.

    You transplant some of the mushrooms down to the bottom of the magic hole. You also pick up any mushrooms you can find and jam them into the more magical dirt. Then you wait.

    A few days later, you have:

    hell double dog yes!

    Okay, let's have the queen stay here while her wings dry. Tell the queen that we are in charge, and that we will care for it as long as it is under our dominion. we will go and fetch MORE HONEY, and a MALE. the MALES are the ones that look MORE DIFFERENT than the other bees.

    bring a pile of boyz to help carry stuff. Also, have twinkle watch the bee, make sure it's all right, knows where to find the extra honey, that kind of thing.

    You watch the bee. It's not too different from an ordinary bee, aside from its more graceful movements and longer abdomen. It isn't interested in wandering off, but it doesn't stop moving either.

    The bee doesn't answer your question, but it does look at you and tilt its head the other way.

    Twinkle is happy to watch the bee. After some coaxing, the bee takes off. The first time, it only gets airborne for a moment, but after a few tries it buzzes along after Twinkle.

    You'll need a sparkle to get a second bee cooperative.

    Ask the bee if it wants to live in our tree. Tell it to tilt it's head right for yes, left for no. Also, tell Bloomstar to make a Indiana Jone's fedora out of the worm leather.

    (It's worth a shot)

    oh, well, the bee will still be fertile for that time. We should go start storing honey NOW though, since there's a lot of carrying to be done.

    between carrying honey, mining, leatherworking and watch, I think we have our labor slots filled nicely. more than enough work for our growing tribe.

    The bee, when you interrupt Twinkle to ask it a question, start to tilt its head left, then tilts it right.

    The bee wanders off after Twinkle.

    Over the next day, it builds a small structure on the outside of the tree, a few inches before the upper level's outer door. There's a flat area to sleep on, an overhang, and two and a half hexagons.

    I'm going to cut it off here, but as usual, sometime between 22 and 23:00 board time tomorrow.

    I will see you then.

    also, everything is going swimmingly. we didn't even lose a man to WORM BATTLES!

    we're getting just about big enough to be noticed by other communities though, so that might start being a problem

    the beetle was an experiment. To see its full capability, we had to test it to the breaking point.

    It wasn't a man down, it was a regrettable necessity of progress.
