Dandelion turned away from the silver gate. Going down deeper into this catacomb didn’t seem like such a good idea. Finding this tax collector guy seemed a bit more likely. She wouldn’t mind paying a few taxes to get some mysteries cleared up.
She turned around and walked back toward the 4-way intersection. she had just reached it when she noticed somebody coming toward her from right ahead. The corridor was kind of dim, but whoever was coming was at least as big as she was, and were those horns on top of its head?
She was at the corner now. She just had time to change her mind and try something else if she wanted to.
[What did Dandelion do: Did she?
- Wait at the intersection ready for a fight?
- Walk to meet the oncoming figure?
- Turn left and run as hard as she could down a long dark tunnel?
- Turn right and run as hard as she could down a long dark tunnel?
- Take the necklace out of the bag and put it back on just in case she might want to cast a spell when the stranger reached her?
Remember, if you want a write-in vote, you can also add that to your answer, but unless you all coordinate so that a plurality request essentially the same thing, those write-ins will come to nothing. Dandelion has maybe 15 seconds to make her decison.]

Dandelion the Ogre said… “I have a brilliant idea! Get the necklace to Poor Baby me and up my CON, quick! I’m writing that option in again. And after that I can deal with the tax collector and think of a way to part ways with the necklace..
Rrraff said… “I just did the same thing: write in “put on the necklace AND CAST POOR BABY ON HERSELF””.
Dandelion the Ogre said… “Hooray!”
Mahrundl said… “Just to be different, I suggested that the necklace should be taken out and given to the approaching figure (who may well be the tax collector)..
Well, it’s one way of destroying your enemies…”
Vestinious said… “I voted the same take the necklace out and use it.”
Dandelion the Ogre said… “Hmm, giving the necklace to the tax collector might be a good idea. But don’t you think I should do that AFTER I fix my CON?”.
Khenn Arrth said… “The voting seems to be falling off. Well here are the results for turn 34..
