“They seem to be prioritizing Minnie,” the wizard explains. “If they think she’s not a threat any more, and the rest of us can cause enough trouble, that should get them to back off.”

“So basically, play dead,” Minnie replies. “Well, I’m an actor, I can do that easily enough. But we’ve got to make it look good. I doubt we’re going to convince them if I just fall over and you all declare I’ve had a heart attack.”

You glance at your sword.

“Well, I don’t think they know what to make of me,” you reply. “So maybe we can pull this off.”

“They’re watching from a lot of angles,” Badger interjects. “I’m not sure you can make it look convincing from all of them without actually stabbing her. And if even a few linger, they might alert the rest of the flock.”

“That wouldn’t be too much of a problem if I had a sheep’s bladder on me, but I don’t,” Minnie muses. “Just stab in the right place, hit the bladder, blood comes out. Without that, we’re probably best served just blocking any angle that gives it away.”

You glance around. There’s a door with a rather large frame around it. Should limit the angles of view. You grab Minnie and drag her over there.

The birds seem confused, which is good. You slip your sword beside Minnie, on the door’s side, and she falls over. A little bit melodramatic, but you think it’s not too bad for being improvised.

Now the birds seem to just be pausing, uncertain. Well, like the wizard said, dealing with their target is only one step. You’ve got to convince them that the rest of you are too much of a problem to deal with.

  1. Gonna have to start reducing their numbers with your sword. But it’d be better if you could make a threatening display. Can the wizard get a torch lit while you’re swatting swifts?
