The dagger seems to send what would almost seem to be a
chuckle... an odd enough thing for a disembodied spirit that
isn't even sure what it was when it was alive. *Call me what
you will.* it says. *I have no name of my own, not anymore.*
The dagger extends Alex's abilities, allowing her to gain some
knowledge of whatever is pursuing them, despite not being able
to see it. It is of low experience, there is no magic, there
are psychic abilities, a low base of PPE, no possessing entity
and a definite aberration of some kind; suggesting a mutant or
non-human or something along those lines.

Alex's thoughts are that she will come up with a name a bit later.
Taping on her companion',s shoulder, Alex will turn in the
direction of the individual, "Reveal yourself."
Her Juicer Rifle rifle will be ready to fire.
Louissa raises her energy energy rifle as well, finger on the
trigger. The aristocratic young lady looks much more the part of
the adventurer now.<br>
Suddenly a creature leaps out of the grass, part lion, part goat and
<img alt="Monster in the grass"
It has a band of some sort of strange, greyish organic hump atop its
head, with a third rather odd looking eye embedded in the tissue.<br>
<img alt="Extra Eye" src="cid:email@example.com"
Its teeth and the fur around its mouth are covered in blood, but it
doesn't seem all that satiated as it jumps at Alex.<br>
Alex - 25<br>
Monster - 17<br>
Louissa - 14<br>
Alex doesn't recognize the type of creature it is, but fires
The burst hits the creature [Damage: 60MD], and the creature bends
and twists in mid-air, dropping to the ground. It is clearly
injured, with smouldering fur revealing scorched skin. It roars in
pain and then lets loose at Alex with fiery breath from its mouth
[Strike: Natural 20]<br>
Alex attempts to dodge the fire attack [Dodge: 26], but is unable
to. The hot fiery breath strikes her [Damage: 16MD].<br>
Louissa wastes no time in firing at the creature herself [Strike:
19] with her TX-45. Her shot hits square in the side [Damage:
34MD], doing even more severe damage. Much of its side is scorched
with spots of fur burning.<br>
The creature roars in pain and then makes as if to go off before it
sinks to its haunches, and then purs like a kitten, though the
strange eye in its forehead still moves about furiously, almost as
if its recording Alex and Louissa's images.<br>
"Let's get out of here before its owner comes along." Louissa
It's then that the two women hear what can only be described as a
baby crying, somewhere nearby in the burning ruins of the village.<br>
