Mihai rushes to Fedler's side, pulls her down to a crouch then draws his sword to cover her flank opposite Steve. He scans the surroundings for anything approaching, on four legs or otherwise.

"Breathe. Shake it off. We can't do this right now." - he whispers to her, in as urgent a tone as he dares raise his voice to.

Steve turns away in disgust and covers his mouth and nose with the crook of his left arm. These weren't his first dead bodies but he'd never seen anything like this. He takes a moment to get himself under control. In and out, slow steady breathing. Get back control.

When he's reasonably sure he has control again, the mage will ask Fedler, "Is this anyone you recognize?"

When Mihai forced Fedler to get down in an effort to protect her, she grabbed his forearm and tightened her grasp on it as hard as she could. Her eyes are now closed, and just like Mihai told her to do, she is trying to regain control of herself. It takes a few more seconds before she can look at the bodies again. She observes the remains of these strangers, and answers Steve's question by shaking her head. She then raises her free hand to point to her left.

"The stream is thirty meters this way."

She is immobile.

To Steve - "These are the Adjuncts sent here before us."

He takes Fedler's arm and moves in the direction she pointed.

"C'mon, you'll be alright. Let's go get those herbs and get out of here."

Ah crap. Steve nods acknowledgement and starts scanning the trees, following along behind Mihai and Fedler and trying to cover them as best he can.

It takes some effort, but Fedler finally gets back on her feet and resumes her sprint. It takes only a few seconds for your group to reach the place where the stream comes out of the earth to flow southeast. There, you can see the Forandors sitting in the shadow of a protective big rock. There is more than enough leaves to cure Igor and have some leftovers for other emergencies.

And just as the wind dies down, you hear howling. It is only now that the birds have stopped singing that you notice how much noise there really was in the forest. The only thing you can hear besides your own breathing is the lapping of the water flowing downstream. Then suddenly, somewhere west of you, you hear the crackling of a tree falling down. None of this has slowed down Fedler; she is gathering as many leaves as she can, even though her hands are shaking. She now seems back in control of herself, despite the fear in her voice.

"Mihai, you protect my sides. And Steve... I hope you were a good student."

In the distance, another tree crackles. It's approaching.

"(Work fast...)" - Mihai thinks as he draws his bow and pulls an arrow, positioning himself between Fedler's flank and the approaching sound, scanning the distance.

"Knife, knife." Steve whispers loudly and motions to Fedler. When the Ranger offers hers, he takes it quickly and begins making cuttings and carefully gathering them. He has to rub beads of sweat out of his eyes several times but Steve gathers all that he can until Fedler says it's time to go.

Fedler takes all the leaves that Steve helped her gather and puts them in a small bag she brought for this exact purpose. She stands up, and says with an urgent tone, "We're getting out of here." Mihai is the first to notice it; a blur of red dashing through the woods, flares of raw magic whipping the trees around it, no more than forty meters away. He takes a short at it, but a whip of magic vaporizes it. The members of the party are terrified, but they know they cannot outrun this animal, so they prepare for battle.

Steve's fire spell manages to hit the creature, which slows down for one second, before it charges again at your group. Fedler's arrow hits only a flare of magic, just like Mihai's. Just when it could jump at one of you, it abruptly stops running to stand still, seven meters away, to stare you down. It isn't growling or making any sudden movement. You can now see that its fur is smeared with blood, and it is hard to make out its original color. Grey maybe?

And out of nowhere, a small pebble hits the left side of the wolf's head, which immediately spins towards the origin of this interference. Steve and Mihai use this opportunity to attack again, to no avail since the whips of magic block the spell and the arrow without any difficulty. Then, a high-pitched voice shouts, "Hey morons! Run! I got it!"

The wolf charges towards the voice and focuses all its flares of magic in that direction, provoking a racket which is as loud as a cannon shot. The party use this opportunity to run back towards the village. Alive.

Once they're reached the edge of the forest, Fedler will ask between two inhalations, "Who was that!? I saw nobody."

Mihai will then explain that he met the Coins' client at the inn, an Oracle who, for the capture of a 15 centimetres tall creature with blue hair and dragonfly wings on its back, offered double what the Coins are paying the 113th Adjunct for their current mission. The hunter has a disbelieving look on her face, for such creatures are known only in fiction. Furthermore, it seems the thieves who stole the Oracle's journal also took this specimen with them, but it got free once they reached Waterglass. The client learned of this only recently, which is why the specimen wasn't part of the original mission.

There are a few details Mihai hasn't shared, but considering what they just encountered, it is normal he hasn't done so.

"Well," starts Fedler, "I'm sure glad I didn't go in there alone."

She still has her two hands on her knees, catching her breath.

"Fuck this."

Doubled over with a pain in his side, Steve focuses on breathing and getting his heart rate down just as Mihai suggests.

Steve nods and rights himself. "He's right, let's get moving." The black mage will run the rest of the way back to Igor, being sure to stay with his party.

Mihai, Steve and Fedler have started running back towards the village when they see Konrad and Saemon also running, but towards them.

"We have the Forandor leaves!" shouts the hunter, who is still gunning for the city hall. Saemon, who now see that the party is uninjured, decides to follow her.

With the friendliest smile on the planet, Mihai will point to the forest and say.

"New business opportunity for more money than you could ever dream of! Just keep going straight ahead, you can't miss it!"

There a certain je ne sais quoi to his tone that indicates that was probably not the best question.

Once your group arrives at the city hall, under the worried look of the villagers, Fedler immediately gives the Forandors to Velstar. The aged woman wastes no time, and selects which leaves to use for the medication. Steve has no time to catch his breath, since she immediately gives him an order, "Steve, you grind these while I prepare the water for distillation."

You can find an alchemy station set up in the corner of the room, near the stretcher on which Igor is lying. If any of you approach him, you will see a man who you guess is in his thirties, but the pale skin, the sweat covering his whole body and the infection turning his veins black make it difficult for you to confirm this. His stump is covered in bandages.

The mayor watches over the whole scene with a stone-faced expression, like if he had already seen something akin to this. Saemon cringes a little at the sight of Igor's condition, but he doesn't comment on it. Fedler has sat down on one of the benchs, and stays quiet.

Saemon turns to Konrad, and says, "Looks like they handled it," gesturing to the gathering party.

"They handled the retrieval of the herb, nothing more. In truth, I don't have much experience in dealing with cursed animals, chief. I thought that the wolf would avoid the three of them if they traveled together - I was wrong."

"However, there is a silver lining: we don't have to take our time tracking it down. The creature might be wary of large numbers, but it should chase any person right into an ambush set by people."

Mihai approaches.

"Yeah, chase it at least twice as fast as any of us can run. Either way, the bastard's not hunting; it's on a mad rampage. It'll lock on to whatever it wants to kill, and rush straight for it."

He turns to Saemon.

"How close do you have to be to counter those flares?"

Saemon answers, "I have to be at least 10 meters near it. And you three will have to make sure it doesn't attack me, or we may all bite the dust."

Steve has finished grinding the leaves, and Velstar is now mixing it to the water, which she will distill once it is ready. "Thank you Steve, I got it from here," she says with a serene tone.

Igor, whose eyes were closed until now, has now woken up and mutters with difficulty, "Kind of dying here... hurry up?" Without missing a beat, Saemon replies, "Shut your mouth Igor, and be happy these people risked their lives for you." The wounded villager can only groan in displeasure, and you cannot be sure whether is was directed towards the chief or his own pain.

You hear someone running into the room, and shouts with relief, "Fedler!" Yen passes by Irving, who voices his disapproval with a "Hey! You're not supposed to be here."

She ignores him, and hugs Fedler who is now standing up and comforting the little girl with pats on her back. "See? Told you I would be fine."

"That's alright, we'll have to take it down as quickly as possible anyway, before it starts beheading or vaporizing people. It seems to be attracted to elemental energy, so me and Fedler can cover you while Steve and Konrad fan out and cast."

He considers something, then adds.

"We should attack in bursts. Arrows first, to weaken those flares as much as possible, and create an opening for the spells to do the damage. Crazed as it is, it'll probably announce it's presence well in advance, so we should have time to prepare and unload all we've got before it can close the gap and whip us. If it does, it's up to you (Saemon) to keep us from getting slaughtered."

Steve smiles at his old teacher. "Right, just glad I could help."

Wiping his forehead, Steve joins the greater conversation. "One issue we have is that none of us are armsmen. We'll need a few folks to keep the wolf busy and off of us ranged folks. The thicker the armor and shields the better. Or barring that, a way to immobilize the beast for a short time.
