Read the OP before posting, especicially the second section.

In this game, each player takes the part of a single head of a hydra.  There will originally be 7 slots, 1 more opening up each time one head is lobbed off by an adventurer, the lobbed off head regrowing, unless the stump was burned/frozen shut (the only way to kill a head off, and trust me, they will be trying [unless you have a cult and you have members remove heads so that they can grow back to give you more power]).  This will be first come, first served.

This will be run by d20, using actions that the greatest number of heads agree upon.

Please limit the amount of profanity in your posts.  Excessive profanity will cause your slot to be replaced if you continue to do so after a warning.

I'll add any vowels that are needed to make logical sense of the name, or provide a fitting translation to an all consonant word.

stefmor90, I would prefer you change the name you are utilizing for your head, as well as giving it a slightly more detailed personality.

It seems like GreatWyrmGold's setting for the overall hydra won, and all the slots are filled.  Further applications will be placed on the waitlist.

Note:later turns will occasionally feature artwork in my poor drawing skill..



Turn 1: the start of the game
You awaken within your lair, a small cave in a swamp.  It is an ideal distance, giving you the perfect distance to raid nearby towns quickly, but preventing all but the most organized efforts to attack you.  However it does happen from time to time, the last one causing your tail to be cut off.  However, due to your species ability, it regrew with a second one.  This can prove troublesome from time to time, evidenced by your three left legs to your two right legs.

Anyway, you notice that the sun is just beginning to appear over the horizon, giving it a slight shade of purple and orange.

What are your first actions on this day?
