A call to arms. Or those bearing arms.

As Neon_N64 said, we’re already in the room so we opt to head to 199 and search the farmhouse further:

Most of the cupboards and drawers are empty. Whoever lived here took nearly everything they owned with them, but you do manage to scrape together enough fruit in the cellar for one Meal. You may mark this on your Action Chart.

Turn to 81.

(81): After nearly an hour, the Kraan and their cruel riders vanish towards the west. As the shocked refugees start to emerge from the woods, you can hear the sound of horses in the distance galloping nearer. You stay hidden and wait as the riders come closer. They are the cavalry of the King’s Guard wearing the white uniforms of His Majesty’s army.

I would pay the authors cash money to add another option in the next edition of the book, saying “If you wish to stagger outside, shaking your fists above your head at the sky and, while staring skyward in agony yelling ‘KRAAAAAAAAAN!’, you win this book.” But that’s not an option, so we’ll just have to pick one of those given.

  1. IMO, the more info we can get the better, so…

    “If you wish to call to them, turn to 183.” 100% (4 votes)

  2. I’d loooove to go with the KRAAAAAAN! option, but since we don’t have that one…..

    I guess calling the King’s guard ain’t going to be trouble (HAHAHAHAHA Yeah, no trouble at all)….

  3. Hmm. This is a hard one. If we call out to them, we might get drafted, and then we’ll end up fighting more scary creatures. I don’t know if our heart can take that. On the other hand, what was the point of leaving the forest at all if we don’t manage to talk to anybody?

  4. Weren’t we supposed to be getting a message to the King, anyway? I mean, before we started our exciting new career as a pillager? We probably ought to make some effort in that direction.

  5. No, I say we continue our path of non-violence, avoidance, and cowardice. Run away from the men on horseback!

  6. I’ve done this before, I really hope you took heal in a page or two.
