Event Picture

This is a Forest exploration event. It can occur multiple times per play through and offers the chance to obtain

Inspect[ | ]

You notice a snake knotted around two bottles. The way it's reeled around them gives the impression the snake is protecting them. It certainly won't let you take them.

Kill it (x1)[ | ]

Note: This is a 'red' option, meaning the 'entity' will disappear once this action is taken!

Relevant skills: Stealth, Hunting

It may not be an ox or a boar, but it will still give you something to eat for tonight. And if you can get the bottles at the same time, this will be perfect! But you know that killing it won't be easy despite its unimpressive appearance. Those reptiles can be very reactive and move swiftly. You'll only get one shot.

Use a stick

You're going to need to arm yourself before approaching it. Fighting one of those creatures with your bare hands is not a good idea, so you carefully grab a staff on the ground. It's a good start, but the hardest part is yet to come: you must approach the reptile silently.
Move silently (Stealth)
Success: You manage to get close enough to hit the reptile with a swift yank. The animal collapses, dead, but in the process you broke one of the bottles.

Use a bow (must have at least 1 arrow)

You notch an arrow and focus before you shoot, you don't want to miss your target. The snake rolls unpredictably, swinging left and right.
Shoot (Hunting)
Success: You kill the snake with only one arrow. You're pretty satisfied. Unfortunately, one of the bottles broke because of the arrow's impact.

Make a diversion (x1)[ | ]

Note: This is a 'red' option, meaning the 'entity' will disappear once this action is taken!

Relevant skills: Beast Handling

You just want to take the bottles, you don't want to kill it. You carefully hit the ground with your feet to attract its attention. Then, when it's looking in your direction, you slowly shake your staff. The snake keeps observing the movement.

Take the bottles

Unfortunately for you, the snake isn't focused on the staff's movement enough. It sees you approaching your hand and bites it when it's too close. Then, it goes away and abandons the bottles that break on the ground.

Keep diverting its attention
It's too soon to try and take the bottles, the reptile isn't focused enough on the staff's movement. You thus keep doing your strange dance and the snake changes its attitude.It stands up straight, becomes more threatening, while following your moves with attention. It doesn't seem to worry about your free hand.
Take the bottles
The snake's attention is focused on the staff's movement, it doesn't see your hand approaching. You manage to take the first bottle, carefully, and then the second one. You get away from the animal and stop moving your staff.

Keep diverting its attention
You keep making the movements, but unfortunately, if the snake has stood up straight, it's because it's about to attack. Indeed, it sees the staff as a prey and swiftly strikes it. You feel a terrible pain in your hand that makes you cream and drop your staff. Through the blood, you distinguish some bite marks. You hunt the snake and it runs away without further ado.
