In their trek through the tunnels the duo discovered a chamber where a large cocoon was hanging in the middle of it, medium-sizes spiders working on tightening it.

Bellena and Kenzo walked up and assessed the situation from a relatively safe distance...

His hand on the hilt of his katana, Kenzo exchanged a wary grimace with Berena, before turning his attention to the scene before them.

The little spiders seem preoccupied and the cocoon doesn't look old. Its size is roughly twice of what it would like if there was a human being inside... so two human beings?

---

Do you (any and all, but once each, can be Cooperative):

Quietly approach? [Stealth vs. TN25] --> FR to other Rolls
Scatter spiderlings with fire? [Jiujutsu (Improvised Weapons) vs. TN20]
Cut the cocoon off? [With a cutting weapon] [Agility/Athletics or Weapon Skill vs. TN25]
Discern more about the cave? [Perception/Investigation (Notice or Search) vs. TN30]
Lure the spiderlings away? [Intelligence/Lore: Shadowlands or Awareness/Animal Handling vs. TN35]

"Right. Kenzo muttered. "I'm going to try to get closer. Cover me."

He crept closer, but not so quietly as to not be noticed...

----------------------------------

FE1, Quietly approach, steath/agi: 4d10o10k3 19

As Kenzo moved forward Bellena started to look around the cave for something of interest. Finding nothing special, she devised a way to get the spiders to move away from the cocoon.

---

Investigation: Fail

Lore-Shadowlands: Pass

Distracting the spiders with throwing stones at the farther web, Bellena lured them away and saved Kenzo from confronting the little ones en masse. Now they were there with just the cocoon.

Kenzo took a moment to give Bellena a quick bow of thanks before turning back to the cocoon.

Frowning with concentration, he used his katana to carefully cut the thing down.

---------------------------------------------------------

FE#1, cut them down, Katana/agi, vp spent, TN25: 9d10ro1o10k4 37

What dropped on the floor like a wet sack were the remains of... a large snakeman, not unlike the Shakunta, just male. The webs somehow had preserved the structure of the body and had halted decomposition, but upon the fall the carcass just collapsed into itself. It must have been old, really old. A handful of pearls rolled out of the Naga's dead grasp and started to travel in various directions. Better hurry, or you ain't gotta catch them all!

[Reflexes Trait Rolls, TN10. One pearl is salvaged. Every 3 over the TN will salvage another pearl.]

Bellena was quick enough to catch a few.

Kenzo's first instinct was to step back away from the dead creature. This left him in a somewhat poor position to grab any of the pearls.

Nevertheless, bushi reflexes were quick. He managed to snap one up with each hand, without dropping his katana in the process.

-------------------------------------------------

FE#1, pearls! Reflex as trait: 3d10o10k3 14
2 pearls saved

Once out of the cocoon, the Naga turned into dust pretty quickly.

[End of the Encounter, RP can continue.]

With a smooth motion, Kenzo sheathed his sword, even as he turned to Berena, holding his two pearls. He frowned curiously at them.

"Is there some significance to these?" He asked, holding them up. "They appear to be pearls. I don't know why that poor creature would have had them, though."

She shook her head, "He looked a lot like the snake-woman I told you about."

Kenzo shrugged, slipping them into his pack. "Well, we can have some expert check them. Assuming they're not unclean, of course."

He gave her a smile. "Of course, you would be first on my list to check on whatever strange things I find while out exploring. If you don't know what they are, I'm not sure who is second." He shrugged. "Perhaps the Crane samurai with the library?"

"Maybe. Or Yajinden-sama." She offered as she put the pearls away.

"Perhaps." Kenzo said, pursing his lips thoughtfully. As much as he'd try to alleviate Utsu's concerns, he had to admit the validity of what she said.

"I'm sure we'll find someone." He said, shrugging.

She nodded, "Well... shall we press on?"
