"I think I'll stay well out of its reach.  But that pretty much destroys what the Brothers used to say, that undead were really just living folk who'd been so completely convinced they were dead that they acted like it.

"Pretty sure missing half your body would do more than convince."

"So, if we were to encounter one like this, 'in the wild' as it were -- say, arrows in through both eyes into the brain and both legs cut off and it still keeps coming -- besides trying to avoid getting bitten, how would we put it down?"

"I would think the arrows to the eye sockets would do for this type... certain demons might need to be dismembered, but these need to have their heads disabled."

"I always try to avoid being bitten.  Even by the cook's cat, or the abbot's dog (the cat was bigger and much more prone to bite).  My preferred method, with undead and such, is to fill them with arrows from as much distance as the situation permits."

"That works better on the fleshy ones than on the bony ones, but many have no vitals that they use, being animated by diffuse energies."

"I agree, but on the bony ones a staff works pretty well."  A shrug waggles the upper end of the slung staff.  "I just don't like getting that close, if I can avoid it.  Just a few days ago, I got too close to one of those boom brats, and it sliced my knee -- fair lamed me.

"Thanks to the Hadereum, I'll be back to normal in a few weeks, but I'll keep nasties at a distance any time I can."

Re: Below Junior House
Jareth tips an imaginary hat to Holgien, "An you."

He turns to the laborers and Mario, "All right t'en, let's be off."



Once outside he asks Evain and François, "You two mind breaking this ya'selves?" as he proffers them a full silver.  "T'e extra be way o' apologizin fer t'e ladder."

"That's it.  For today.  Let's go split this with t'e crew."


OOC:  It'd only 10 copper each.  But hey, 10c for walking across town and no risk?

"Wow. I am going to go take a hot bath and get my clothes cleaned and patched up." she glances at Frank, who looks to be on the edge of saying something.
"and no Frank, you are not invited."

"Yeah, a couple days meals.  I think I might head over to Little Sahud and get some tea.  I'll come back to the house later."

Jareth and company return to the house, while Evaine returns to the guild, and Frank heads off to a tavern.

The house needs some work, a little cleaning, and probably locks for the doors, although they do have bars inside.

I can lock some against all but mages... but they won't be usable to us without my dispelling the spell.

Re: Below Junior House
"That would work for doors we don't need to use regularly, but for doors we need to pass frequently, it would make much more sense to have actual locks installed.

"That shouldn't be expensive -- $50 in labor and $40 or $60 for the actual locks, I'd think."

The bars stop just about everyone, and we'd be awakened by anyone trying to break in.

"Oh, yeah, for tonight.  Don't depend on me to raise the alarm; once I get the lights out, it takes a real effort to get me up.  I once slept through a kitchen fire at the orphanage."
