VETERAN MONSTER HUNTER KNOWLEDGE BONUS!

Uriah turned the humanoid-torso into a pile of flesh and blood and bone and it was still regenerating, he put far more hurt on his demon than you did on yours.

You've dealt with a number of regenerating monsters and demons before.  You saw some of the giants demonstrate powers which, had you not caught them entirely by surprise, would probably had been enough for one Gold-Mesh giant to kill you and your Balls, one of them, alone.  And the Ox-Demons seem to be in charge?  You blew away a good chunk of its head and it is still very much alive, you saw part of its head growing back. If that thing recovers for even a moment your almost certainly going to die, you and all of your Balls.  Given the fact it is still yelling, it looks like it has not done recovered.  Yet.  How much time do you have left?

A weird time in which we are alive. We can travel anywhere we want, even to other planets. And for what? To sit day after day, declining in morale and hope.


Our guy's limbs were "chaotically flailing" when we threw the orb at him - certainly not the precision strikes Uriah's guy tried making on the orb.

Have to hope our arrow through the brain gave him a Mighty Aneurysm, and as soon as the orb stopped the regeneration he was already far too messed up to make a coordinated strike at the orb.

Diog edit: well if Uriah's guy was far more messed up than ours, nice knowing you guys. Again.

Poke me.

Do we have our spear on us right now, and if so, do we feel confident enough in our ability to throw it straight through the wall that separates us from the ox-demon?

Frankly, I don't know anyone who likes Chinese bronzes, but I have one of the finest collections in the country.

Don't vote D guys, why are people doing that?

Our only hope is that this guy has not managed to regenerate. Every moment we spend away gives it more time to smash the orb and/or regenerate. If we get back before it's regenerated, we're okay, we can keep on caving its head in; even if it manages to smash the orb, if it hasn't fully regenerated we can keep mutilating it until Uriah is free and can grab some orbs for us. Stopping to get more orbs, best case scenario, does nothing for us: if it hasn't regenerated, then we're alright either way, if it has, more orbs will be useless. If it has already regenerated, stopping to get more orbs does nothing, if it hasn't, then all that spending thirty seconds to get more orbs does is give it thirty more seconds to recover.

Hasn't regenerated + not getting more orbs: Okay.
Has regenerated + not getting more orbs: Irrelevant
Hasn't regenerated + getting more orbs: Risky.
Has regenerated + getting more orbs: Irrelevant.

I like your style hombre, but this is no laughing matter. Assault on a police officer. Theft of police property. Illegal possession of a firearm. FIVE counts of attempted murder. That comes to... 29 dollars and 40 cents. Cash, cheque, or credit card?

There are six plausible scenarios here.

1: We run over to our demon and it hasn't regenerated.
We keep beating it up until it's fully in the orb: We Win.

2: We run over to it and it is regenerating!
We stop it in time by beating it senseless and using the necklace against it: We Win.

3: We run over to it and its fully regenerated
We die: We lose.

4: We get the pokéballs and it hasn't regenerated.
We beat it even faster and can help Uriah out. : We Win.

5: We get the pokéballs and it's almost finished regenerating!
We might be able to beat it, and if we do, great! : We might win.

6: We get the pokéballs but it has fully regenerated!
We can't kill it and we die. : We lose.

Out of these, option C, run over there and kill it now wins two times out of three for sure instead of only one time out of three for sure as with plan pokéball.
Erring on the side of caution I think C is the best vote.

argh


I think that's an okay breakdown. But I'm going for D because I'm worried we can't fight it long enough for Uriah to finish his if the necklace got smashed. Which is its own branching set of scenarios from a couple of the ones you posted.

That said I'm fine with C winning as it is. If we can disable its arms and legs we'll do a lot better since we won't be getting pummeled.

You have your club and bow.

Also, you are ridiculously overestimating your strength if you think you can throw a spear through:

1. The wall of this room and then
2. Two walls to Gebeb's chamber

Even if you had the strength, the spear would not survive.
