Very true, but not the majority of fruits are that way. If even on Felarya there were fruits THAT poisonous, don't you think more travellers would die that way (I mean, most would still get eaten, of course) and that you'd see thier bones occasionally? That could be a big red flag for "poisonous or not". Check the vacinity for bodies. A predator would probably avoid eating the carcass of something that died from poison...

... I think there's a miscomunnication... if you would find bodies around the tree, then you don't eat the fruit... or do I not understand what you mean (which is highly likely)? I don't get things quickly... help

Hey, you're right. Guess it wasn't such a good idea.

I'd use my combat training and mapping skills to keep me alive.

Combat training vs. an 80 ft monster with intelligence matching or exceeding that of a human coupled with probably the equicivalant of an entire human lifetime's worth of experience. I get the strangest feeling that it wouldn't go that well.

Depends on how much equipment he starts with. Also, never underestimate a lone man behind enemy lines with a compass.

yup. and you'd be suprised what a 5.56 or 7.62 can do in a well placed group.

I would head towards the Jungle Bowl(if I wasn't already there) carrying lots and lots of fire so plants couldn't kill me and well, I would live with Cypress for the rest of my life.

Thinking about it, I would lose any gear that i wouldnt need, try to make myself as fast as possible.
While i'm moving i would probably stay away from the treeline, the trees, brush and grass would slow me down.
I would act like the enemy already knows I'm there, face it, most preds probably will know you're there.
stay quick and agile, keep on the alert. dont bother hiding, they can find you anyway.

You're right, speed is crucial.

If I found myself in Felarya?

I'd make a run for Negav City. All I'd have to do is make it to Negav City. That's the hard part in Felarya... making it to Negav frickin City.

If I make it, I'll join whatever group defends travelers against Preds, learn their tactics, secure some equipment, and start a business selling to the Delurans. The Delurans need weapons that don't rust, and that need translates to profit and loyalty.

At the same time I'll hire myself out to protect small towns that are known to have been targets of Great Preds, making sure to secure what I need for the type of Pred that typically hits them. After sending a few Preds packing, I'll rinse and repeat with other towns, and build up a reputation. Plus I'll train the smarter towns folk on how to defend themselves and make their town "reasonably undesirable targets".

Then I'll go back to the people at Negav City and identify those who are being forced to leave due to overpopulation. I'll get them to a town that is reasonably undesirable for preds to attack, and at the same time advise all these towns that we need to unify in order to adequately protect ourselves. It's easy to unify humans if you are winning their battles for them.

I'd also establish trade routes; hardly anyone will be trading when they're at risk of being eaten by a Pred. I'd do this by hiring mercenaries and luring bandits into taking up mercenary security force roles. Privateers, if you will. Bandits like going legit when they can make a steady income that's safer - being alive to spend their pay does mean something. I'd be betting strongly on that. Bandits turned mercs can then help me clear trade routes of Preds.

At the same time I'm also feeding kickbacks to the Magiocrats. I'm sure they respect money; this should get me a lot of mini/rechargeable Psi'sol crystals for the various towns.

It can't be Godly difficult to convince one of them to spill the beans on how the Main crystal was made... and make a duplicate. It'll take a while but I'll be working that angle 24/7. Somebody up in there is bound to be mentally vulnerable. And... if the Magiocrats managed to make one huge Psi'Sol crystal - if they can figure it out, someone else can. It's the nature of knowledge that if one can know something, someone else can learn it independently, too.

When I have the method to build a full fledged Psisol crystal, I quickly install one in EVERY town across Felarya, and rechargeable crystals on all caravan and convoy routes, while my mages and scientists work hard on designing a personal crystal that's portable by one person and capable of stopping a Great Pred a few times before being recharged.

By now the Delurans should be ready to revolt in order to claim their life above ground. I'd help them win simply by making their rulers obsolete - their rulers would have no power to keep them trapped underground, and they'd live in the sunlight without fear of any preds.

The first time there's any fighting between humans, the crystal gets removed from both warring towns; a day of living in fear of Great Pred attacks should put an end to their fighting.

Once all that is done my next step is to establish a huge mage's academy to foster a rapid upward spiral in human mastery of magic.


Everyone loves to keep their children alive. Help them do so in a world where so many of people's daughters and sons die, and they'll love you forever. You can bet your life on that.

You just have to make it alive to Negav City.....

I'd take high crime rates over digestion any day.

The Jungle bowl would be the best place, as Cypress is a kind and caring figure and I would try to become one of her "children"

I would go for the jungle bowl or try and befriend a naga or mermaid. If I found myself in the ocean I would make for the city of Ryzelm'oire, if possible. Failing either, I would try and befriend a drider or naga, preferably one that was not hungry. Just ask it to chat, and if by some miracle I did not get eaten then and there I would try and find what it liked. Of course, if it didn't like stories then I would be screwed, but if it like that-or poetry, to an extent-then I might be able to befriend her. Since I somehow doubt I'd be able to make it to the bowl if I landed near the great tree or in a similar place. I'll be honest and give myself survival odds of 20-30%. Maybe 50-55% if I happened to be carrying around one or two of my favorite fantasy books/trilogies and the one I ran into liked long stories. Ideally I would come out near the bowl and make it in, but I have a feeling that would be a longshot.

As for why I wouldn't bother to go for any other cities? Let's be honest, I wouldn't have a damn clue as to which direction I should go in! Which coupled with the tendency for people who are lost to go in circles would mean that without a very large friend I would get gulped sooner or later. As for fire...somehow, to me lighting a fire in the felaryan wilderness sounds like a very, very bad idea. I think the preds probably view it as a kind of smoke signal..one that says "dinner" even better than one of Gunther's bells.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why caravans/convoys would rather put up with bandits than Great Preds.

I guarantee you that your first day there will be quite harrowing.

Cypress has to eat, and the 40 foot Giant Marsh Viper is her favorite dinner.

A 40 foot long creature in her stomach takes a while to digest and dissolves quite noisily, given any credible law of chemistry and physics.

Her stomach is going to sound like one giant bubbling friggin cauldron from the outside while she's digesting this marsh viper.

You as a newb will hear this from quite a distance and most newbs will probably turn vegetarian after crapping their pants a few times.
