And so, we get to the meat of it.
Date Hikiji, enterprising Ashigaru, drinks too much one night. Much too much. Unknowingly, he angers great spirits in his drunken ramblings, and in his slumber he is faced with Tzjezzkle, the Eater of Skin, whose seventy mouths ask him seventy impossible riddles at once. Upon failing to answer, Hikiji is flung to a far off, cursed land, to fall into the sea just off the coast of South America.
Upon clambering onto the beach and vomiting up his dinner from last night, he finds himself faced with a curious, confused looking man with a strange club clad in a spotted animal's pelt. Having had enough weirdness, Hikiji hefts his weapon, and determines to kill this barbarian for the audacity of being here to see him humiliated!
The barbarian obviously gets the message, and weapons are hefted!
Let the battle begin! What should Hikiji throw?
