"Well, ma'am," said Tom, "you tried talking instead of just fighting, so I had this idea that maybe we could be reasonable about this instead of violent."

"Did you now?" The voice asked. "And how do you intend to do that?"

"Well, while we're just talking, there's no point in violence," said Tom.  "And I'll just go on forward and get the people we came here to get.  And then if you try and stop us, well..."

He shrugged.

"You'll find out, I guess.  Sorry.  Got reasons to be confident; not going to explain them to someone who's being hostile."

"Nope," said Tom.  "You could always clear that up, if you wanted to."

Before you appeared a woman with red skin, coal black hair, large bat wings and ram's horns.

"Does this make it clear?"

"Pretty much," said Tom, shifting to a calculated distance and position as he spoke.  "It doesn't have to go down like this, though.  Last chance."

But he was tensed to strike, and from an angle she wouldn't see coming.

"This is my new home and you threaten me?" the demon asked.

"I told you, it doesn't have to be that way," said Tom.  "All we want is to get the remains of the people you killed out.  I'm not going to strike the first blow here.  It's in your hands now."

"I could do that I suppose," the demon said and was suddenly gone.

Tom didn't trust that at all, but he kept going forward, looking for any sign of those adventurer's remains.  Or an attacking demon.  Either one, really.

You did eventually find the remains. It looks like it was a particularly brutal attack.

That wasn't good, but at this point, the important thing was to complete the job.  Tom set about gathering the remains up to bring back.

Suddenly, a very large boar appeared off in the distance and it appeared to be sprinting towards you.

Tom drew The Hidden Edge and waited.  If it was going to attack, fine.  But it might be a trick or a bluff...

Tom stood his ground and waited for it.  He was waiting for it to get within reach...

So, yeah, holding action.  If it does attack, then attack roll is 21.

The boar did attack but missed. You managed to strike it, drawing blood. Jill missed an ice spell.

You cut a long, jagged wound into the boar as it charged into Jill, knocking her down and she didn't move.

"JILL!" shouted Tom.  He was by the boar instantly, slashing at it in a red haze.

And a perfectly-timed Crit!

The boar crashes to the ground, squealing and doesn't get up as its cries get quieter.

Tom went to check on Jill at once.  He didn't know if the attack was treachery, but if she was badly hurt...
