Ruth takes a careful look at the swamp and mushrooms. These look familiar, don't they?

Rasputin squints at the bubblin swamp before looking up at phaedra.  "We might want to get a rope around you.  I dont think wandering into this semi-poison looking shit is gonna end well. Either way Im thinking rats in a rat kings den is bad. we better step on them so they dont... rat us out to their boss." He then pauses in his wandering.  "...heh. rat wordplay." he then thinks back on his own travels through this region or tavern expeditions remind him of any info on this nasty business. (1d20+4 = 10).

He is then far more interested in any psychic damage done by his rat puns anyway

Accounts of the Fey'el Bog are incredibly rare - as stated before, most who enter these woods during a full moon do not return. One of the very few explorers who did return, a man by the name of Quesaeus,  later took up residence in the Winterbole Forest, and passed on his written account of the Bog on to a young girl who lived nearby and had an interest in magical phenomena. To such a girl, a firsthand account of a site in the Feywild was sure to remain treasured.

The Fey'el Bog itself is a swamp filled with a substance thought to be totally unique to the area: an orange sludge containing compounds very similar to lactic proteins and enzymes. One whiff at the present moment confirms it - this stuff's practically cheese. The presense of this substance, named Quesaeu for the man who discovered it, has had clear effects here. The area has naturally attracted a huge population of rodents. Additionally, the local fungus has been noticeaby changed by growing in this uniquely nutritive sludge. Most of the mushrooms here have grown to enormous size, though they have little unique properties besides that. A certain species of tuber that grows just under the surface of the earth, though, has a tendancy to absorb the compounds in the Quesaeu to an extreme extent without a relative increase in size, making them dense in nutritional value and unique flavor. These are the "Queselium" tubers, highly coveted in many regions of the natural world.

Usually Queselium can only be found by animals with an accutely tuned sense of smell, but it appears a chunk of it has somehow emerged from the ground and is sitting in plain sight [the brightly-colored object on the left].

Phaedra's eyes light up upon being informed of the cheese potato and she attempts to push one of the mushrooms into the cheese swamp so she can walk across.  (Str roll: 1d20+4 = 24).

Phaedra delivers a mighty chop to one of the tall mushrooms, which cleanly splits it in two. Both halves fly a short distance to either direction, and land in such a way as to provide easily walkable paths over the swamp.
The rats scurry around a bit, but still seem to be minding their own business.

Spoiler for Pepe's Quest: GOTY Edition:

The bone whirls through the air and hits the wall with a small "clack". The Salamanca looks up from its cauldron. "Ehhhh?" It totters over to the bone, picking it up off the floor. "Who's tossing bones around? Are you finally up and about, Rhugo? Or... oh dear, did I leave you to hatch on the floor there, Amby?" The Salamanca begins moving toward the corner of the wall closest the egg.

Spoiler for Super Crandel World 2: Pepe's Island:
The Salamanca comes around the corner just as you duck around the wall. "Ah, I did leave you there, Amby. At least you didn't hatch while I had my back turned! Come come, let's put you down below where it's safe."
When you attempt to open the chest on the left, you find that it's locked.

Spoiler for Sly Pepe and the Thievious Salamancus:
Pepe whips out his trusty lock-picking set and gets to work. (Thievery: d20+6 = 7 uh oh) Pepe makes a mental note to start buying thief supplies from either a less shady merchant or a significantly more shady one.

"Lets just find the girl and go.  This is a weird and silly place.  Also fuck these rats"Rasputin picks up a large rock and hucks it at one of the rats as hard as possible. (crit fail 1d20+5 = 6) but the rock somehow slips from his hand due to the cheese buildup on his hand and it sails off in a odd direction  "Shit.  Heads up."

Spoiler for Pepe Simulator 2015:
Your shoddy theives' tools make a loud "CRUNCH" noise as both they and the lock break simultaneously. With surprising agility, the Salamanca pokes its head back around the corner.
"Aaack! Rugoh there's a GNOME IN HERE! Yaaaah!" It rushes back around the corner, and you can hear it slide down into the hole.



The heavy stone sails directly for the hunk of Queselium that Phaedra's attention had been fixed on. The rock hits the tuber on its side, causing it to go flying toward the bog. There's a sudden movement in the goop, and a large mass can be seen rising quickly from it. When the Queselium is inches from the surface of the Quesaeu, a pair of large jaws emerge from the bog and catch it. You see a glimpse of a large, white, roughly scaled creature submerging itself back into the Quesaeu.

What do you do next?

Spoiler for Pepe's Quest 64:
Pepe loses his cool at his awful state of affairs and hollers at the beast. "Dammit get back here you overgrown lizard! Gimme the box you stole from that creepy elf idiot right now, or you'll regret it!" Pepe scans the room for leverage and notices the cauldron. "I'll... I'll make one hell of a mess out of your pots and pans! I mean it!" (Intimidate:  d20+4 = 23 )

"...Im not going in there.  Phaedra maybe you can chat with that thing.  You're one fourth frightening monster arent you?" Rasputin chucks another rock into the opposite side to see if there is more than one

Ruth recalls yet another story about the Fey'el Bog, a part that Quesaeus was hesitant even to put down in writing. You have witnessed a fearsome Quesadile. It's a powerful reptile that lives its whole life in the Queseau muck, emerging only when it finds an opportunity to consume some ever-coveted Queselium tubers. Otherwise, it simply feeds on any animals foolish enough to wade too far in to the cheesy goop.

Rasputin's second rock lands in another patch of swamp, and makes a "plop" sound, after which it takes a moment to sink. Nothing else happens.


Spoiler for Peptroid Zero Mission:
Just as abruptly as he'd retreated, the Salamanca pokes his head back up out of the hole in the floor, a look of what is probably fear on its face. "D...don't you touch that cauldron! It's Rugoh's medicine! Wh-wh-why did Eupatorium have to send such a devious creature in here?! Fine, I'll take you down to Rugoh - he's got what you're looking for. Just let me take some of this medicine with us, ok? He's real sick down there!"

Spoiler for Pepe Mario & The Thousand Year Door:
Pepe breathes a sigh of relief at seeing his awful bluff work on the poor creature. "Alright, fine, bring him his medicine. But no funny business." Pepe rests his hand on his dagger, still on his belt.
