Training Mission 2

Sam tells you the story of the Woman of the Woods, while you reinvestigate strange lights over Abel


Scene summaries may contain spoilers
On your second trip to investigate the strange lights, Sam tells you a tale of three runners, who went on a mission to investigate the zombie-repelling methods of the 'Woman of the Woods'.
As you pass through the trees and approach a little hut, the zoms fall back! The woman of the woods will share her zombie-repelling tea recipe, but only if you gather ingredients for her.
You reach a pond the old lady directed you to, where runners 6 and 12 go for a little swim to help you catch the requested ingredients; five newts. When the newts start biting however, you hurry back to the hut.
Back at the hut, you discover the newts are not ingredients for tea, but snacks for the old lady's enormous cat. She sends you back out to gather silver-bark branches.
Runners 6 and 12 snap off some branches, but the trees really don't seem to like that, as they begin bleeding, and speaking...
Safely inside the hut again, Runner 6 notices the Woman of the Woods has pages from "The Prince in Puce". Runners 6 and 12 seem transfixed by the eyes of spiders, so Sam thinks you should leave, tea or no tea.
You try to escape, but end up back at the hut. The old lady drugged you with her newt pond, to use as zombie bait! Just as all hope is lost... you're back in the present. Sam may have added some spooky flourishes to the tale. The lights are gone again, so you head back home.
