Butch looks around at the others and all their gear. "I sure hope you guys know how to climb. That's not something I've had a terrible amount of practice at."

"I'm a skilled climber," says Harry. "I can show you what you need to know."

"First let's see if there's a better way up there," says Harry, looking around the area.

Crowley lights up his pipe thoughtfully.

"Gentlemen, my impression of that map in the dead Templar's tomb was that we go around the high plateau, not over it. Am I wrong?"

You all see very far away in direction of the plateau, some giant flying creatures; they have wigs like bats, but they are very different of bats.
Your path skirts the plateau. You follow it for some time, with its sheer rock face of the towering over you. Eventually you find yourself atop a ridge overlooking the river. Ahead of you is a huge gaping fissure in the earth. Apparently, whatever ancient seismic event isolated the plateau also created the chasm which now blocks your path. Following the lip of the fissure away from the plateau, you come across a giant tree whose massive branches extend out over the chasm. Another such tree grows on the opposite side of the fissure, and it appears that two of their great arms connect together in a mass of branches. If you can climb the trees, you should be able to get to the other side of the chasm.

Please, make climb rolls to go up the tree.

Alex mutters grumpily to himself, 'climbing bloody trees at my age what do they think I am, a little boy?'

Harry can't find a firm footing.

Climb roll (55% skill) climbing the trees:

At least that's not a critical failure! When your skill is over 50%, only a 100 is a fumble.

Crowley pauses, "Should we maybe rope ourselves together like mountain climbers, in case anyone falls?"

Looking at the trees, Butch takes a rope and prepares a climbing harness in case he slips over the gorge.

"Should we maybe rope ourselves together like mountain climbers, in case anyone falls?"


"I'm with you on that. I don't want to end up at the bottom of the gorge."

"Yes, that's an excellent idea," says Harry, taking out his rope and helping to link everyone together.

Crowley, once roped to the others, takes a stab at climbing the tree.

With Crowley's help, you manage to climb, but it takes a while.Until you are all up.High in the air, the tree branch you are standing on provides you with a breathtaking view of the Amazon. Sturdy and strong, it is wide enough for you to easily cross single-file without fear of falling.
One by one, you step out onto the branch over the chasm, feeling the warm jungle breeze tug at your clothing. As you reach the point where the two giant trees intertwine, you see that what appeared to be a mass of branches from the ground is actually a huge nest spanning the two enormous branches. Inside the nest are five man-sized eggs. Unfortunately, you will have to pass through the nest in order to reach the other side of the chasm...

Butch looks over the nest and the eggs and then to the sky while shaking his head.

"Okay guys, cover me as I go across. Let's try not to disturb anything and let's move fast."

With that, he gingerly enters the nest and attempts to make his way past the large eggs.

Alex draws his revolver and crouches down scanning the horizon. 'Better get a move on, I didn't like the look of those flying creatures'.

Harry does likewise, hoping that the mother pterodactyl doesn't return.

Crowley draws his revolver then attempts to cross after Butch. "At least there aren't spiders."

As soon as the last of you enter the nest, 2 huge creatures fly in your direction; one in front, the other behind you (this one brings something thing in his mouth, a human corpse, that he drops in the nest) and they prepare to attack you.
