It's not like he's faking. I'm sure Goliath's is far better with that sniffer, but Peter does have Tracking-13.

Hopefully we had some nets or ropes (or ropes we could have turned into nets overnight) for the task.

Peter will lead the men into the fray!

Which indicates the poorness of the undeclared roll I made for him. You're also not actually tracking his route: just moving towards him.

Luitwin brought a coil of rope, but that seems to be the limit of preparation for subding the beast, unless you count the spears.



If Peter can make an IQ+1 check, he can retroactively act on this information while they are still in the village.

So a simple frontal attack?

Rolled a 9 on the IQ check - Success!

Now that you mention it, probably better to have the men flank out to surround the creature if they can manage it.

Luitwin: "Lad, the man is as good as dead already. we're just going to put him out of his misery. We can carry extra rope just in case."

"Luitwin, we should at least try. There may be a human being in there we can rescue and send home. What to the teachings of the light say about human life? Shouldn't we try and save them if we can, even if it is hard? Don't you want to learn the TRUTH of what is happening? Should we not show MERCY? You said you would try to cure if we could capture it, but now you don't want to try and bring it in?"

Luitwin: "The Light says human life is precious. Which is why I don't want to risk any lives on this. That thing could easily kill one of us. If it all works out, we'll bring it back and try to restore whoever it is in there."


"Its not about it being hard, its about the cost of failure."

Peter will move in and encourage a nonlethal take down if possible

The beast stirs as they move into position. Peter was given a large stick with a wooden point, but Luitwin wants him to stay close to Helmut and "not try anything reckless. You're a tracker, not a soldier".



The archers open up with arrows almost immediately, with one arrow striking true. The beast has not recovered from any of last night's injuries. It funs for a gap between Luitwin and an archer. Luitwin stabs at it as it passes, drawing more blood. The beast turns to fight, outside of the circle now.



Luitwin: "A few more arrows should do it!"

Peter takes hold of the net and charges up and swings it wide at the creature with both hands!

We never resolved if Peter got a net or not... Luitwin only grabbed ropes. Peter doesn't have knot-tying (revoke his eagle!) but he should be able to scrounge a net from somewhere... though its probably something someone uses during part of the year, and it won't be a weaponized net.

You clearly stated your intent to get a net, we can go ahead are retroactively play that out.

The Net skill only defaults from cloak. Also Peter doesn't have or know how to make a weaponized net, so its improvised at best.


Doesn't mean he can't put himself out there and make a point though!
