One of Oz's men runs forward, takes off his backpack and retrieves a
medkit, and immediately sets about cleaning wounds, tending broken
bones and strains, and giving everyone a mild sedative.

Jacek looks into the mist, as if trying to see what is beyond it.

One of the women, calmed a bit by the sedative, is able to give a description.

"T'was a multi-tentacled thing, m'lord." she says. "Aye, like one o'
them sea squid, but bigger an' all mottled yellow."

Another woman interjects, "Aye, that's how it looked rampaging, but
I'd swear to the Gods 'pon my mother's grave that when it first came,
twas in the form o' a little girl, no more than seven or eight

That certainly rings bells with Oz. He remembers the little girl that
had traveled with them to New Camelot, and the horrible creature that
had seized Louissa, that, as he remembered was a mottled yellow
tentacled monstrosity.

Jacek clearly is growing impatient. In Euro he tells Oz "I will not
wait any longer. Tend to the women if that's what you're good for, but
I'm taking my men to rescue our comrades."

In American he shouts to his men, "Alright men, we're making for the
village. Quickly now!"
