Gundrabu sighs. There never is rest for a son of the Kraken.

Gundrabu takes time to help the newcomer -- presumably the newcomer wants to help -- carry Votin down the steep slope to a place suitable for rest. Presumably there is such a place on the bank of the river.

Ha! Just checking.

Gundrabu slips his hand inside and feels 
a folded Poncho/Cape
a Tinderbox
a number of small Torches
2 large empty Leather pouches

and a bundle of iron rations

 

Gundrabu pulls out what feels like a bundle or iron rations. His stomach roars.

There are 6 slivers of dried deer, and 4 hard biscuits.

Gundrabu devours one sliver of dried deer and one hard biscuit. Then, if nothing transpires during his hasty meal, he wraps himself in his furs and goes to sleep.

You ask a question like that, I have to go with the thumb-adorned one! 😲

Gundrabu places his hands within the pack, unless Votin makes to remove them with his axe.

The pain is one that Votin has not experienced...he thrashes around...not able to move...as if being held back.

In a moment of lucidity, his vision clears and he manages to utter...

"Who are you?"

"Where are my ancestors?"

"I don't see them!"

 

“The Kraken has clutched you back from your ancestors, for I need your help. I am weak, famished, and I need to sleep. Watch over me” — Gundrabu looks alternately at Votin and Sigrun -+ “and if either of you have a bite of meal, give it to me.”

If neither are forthcoming with viands, Gundrabu will riffle through Votin’s belongings.

Gundrabu’s intention is to satisfy his stomach, then wrap himself in his furs and fall asleep right there.

Once Sigrun gets the fire going, she tells Tillak to tend to it before heading off to check on the dead. She makes sure her movements are none threatening to the one Tillak named Gondrabu and when she’s close enough, Sigrun will shout out, “Gondrabu? Your comrades Tillak and Kondor are up on yon ridge. Both are alive. Is there anything I can help you with? If not, I will hunt us some food to eat.”

"Have you any skill in leechcraft, stranger? This man lives, but barely. I have naught I can do for him."
Though Gundrabu uncertainly turns the new ring find on his thumb, wondering if it has some boon within.
[Also, hilarious quotation. Well chosen! ]

Oh, okay. I do the below, then. I think the newcomer before the latest is Votin and that he is “dead.” I’m trying to get to him.

Gundrabu kneels and checks for signs of life. If he finds any, he binds wounds — searching through any belongings the person has that may be of help.

If Gundrabu notices the new character, he makes no overt response, instead continuing as fast as possible to the canoes. He feels the coils of Khalk-xu drumming on the skin of the universe; perhaps, though he lacks magic for the nonce, he may yet prevent another soul from being devoured in his god’s rending beak. Of course, if the Kraken insists on the meal, so be it, but if the fallen figure could somehow be preserved, the one clinging to life may draw others into a net for a larger, future harvest.

His new ring on his thumb,, and sharpened stave in the other hand, all the excitement apparently diminishing, Gundrabu hies back to the canoes.

He means to take an undamaged one back to the spits, to loot the bodies of beastmen and search for other gear.

He also wonders about that other figure. He wonders if he is still around. If he is, maybe he needs help.

Sorry, Gundrabu has no spells! I’m beginning to believe he’ll never have spells again. 😂

No rest for worshippers of the Kraken!

Gundrabu has dropped his long and sharpened pike already. He also has sheathed his dagger.

“Khalk-xu conserve me.”

Gundrabu works the ring off the decomposing thumb. If he succeeds, he puts the ring on one of his own fingers.

When it is his turn, Gundrabu touches the bone and wiggles it a bit, to see if it will come free from the earth -- or perhaps if it is attached to a greater skeleton.

The bone shifts in the mud, about two inches protrude. Its edge is smooth by a single cleave.

Gundrabu seizes as much of the protruding part of the bone as he can. He stiffens his legs and shoulders. He gives the bone a yank, using most of his feeble strength.

Gundrabu retreats into the shrubbery with his long stick. He begins to sharpen one end with his +1 Dagger.
