Asha looked at her doubtfully for a full couple seconds, then shrugged as she realized it wasn't the craziest thing she'd heard over the past couple months, "Could be jump jets or something to let it boost over high walls and breach upper stories of buildings?" She suggested  peering closer, another thought occurring to her, "We should check out that explosion and fire, it could be another of these things got taken down near the perimeter, or it left some kind of limpet mine in the mans home or remains as a trap?"

She stepped closer and held her light steady, making it easier for Caregie to work on her dissection and analysis of the thing, and to be on hand in case it had any surprises still in store for them.

Carnegie ripped up some grass and used it to clean her hands and knife, then she got up and spoke. "Uhm afore we do dat though, iffin dat head is transmittin sum kajnd a trackin signal what with de blinkin lights n'd all, we oughta crush it first and foremost so's we ain't gettin anymore a those  cumin 'ere...Uhm, Marcus kin yeu...pick up a big rock n'd smash it or sumthin? Ah doubt we woudd be able ta do much wit it anyways. Ah'll go help de others put out the fires now." She said looking to see if anyone else would volunteer, in either case they probably shouldn't be straying too far away from eachother but she couldn't just stand by idle while the village burned down.

"Hold on a sec, we could use it as bait as well, whoever built this thing and sent it against the community might wish to retrieve its remains, so placing it somewhere in the forest and setting up an ambush for its owner might tell us more about why they unleashed it on out community, and perhaps stop them from sending more." She paused briefly at realizing she had referred to the town as "our community" a bit surprised at herself she already thought of herself as one of them, but decided not to make an issue of her phrasing if no one else did.

Carny stared at the woman in disbelief.
"...N-now hold on 'ere, Ah... Ah dunno how common those thangs are over in Stonehammer, but de tajm it took ta bring it down... Ah... coudd 'ave taken down three yotes alone, inna tajm it took all'a us ta tajk down one a those! Whoever or whatever it may be dat sent dat thang, iffin dey's got more a them... All we's got are dese ol guns. Ah hardly reckon we'd stand a chance against anyone wielding such... uh... resources. Ta their disposal..."

"Dis thang..." She said and emphasized it with a kick to the cadaver. "Dis is advanced stuff, Ah've... never seen anythang lajk it. Ah reckon we'd be much better off hidin fra whatever sent it." Not to mention it might be you their looking for, she thought to herself. She crossed her arms and hugged herself for support, this was uncomfortable, she wasn't used to airing her opinions so openly, but she was a hunter, not a... clanker-hunter. Her eyes darted nervously between her companions, she wondered what the decision would be.

I would just like to point out though, that I as a player am not opposed to le ambush.

Asha nodded slowly, reaching out to put a reassuring arm on Caregie's shoulder, "You;re right in they probably only have one of them, which means if they retrieve its remains personally they may be far less equipped and able to be dealt with easily by surprise, besides the advantage we have with an ambush is we can size up the opposition, see if it's anything we can't handle, if it prove too difficult we can just remain still and let them go from whence they came, then maybe track them back to their home and go from there."

She looked over at the mayor and nodded, "It's your call of course sir, but I would suggest we use the opportunity to find out as much as we can about who sent this thing and why, take the offensive before we find ourselves preyed upon again in the future." She paused for breath and gave them a sly smile, "Besides in an ambush we can rig up a dead fall or pit trap that'll take one of these out of commission with less risk to ourselves."

"I'm with Asha," Marcus said bluntly. "Hiding ain't an option- if they got the technology to make a thing like that, they probably got something that'll let 'em know that their beastie ain't in fightin' shape any more. They- if there is a they, could be a beastie left over from history- they know we killed it, and if they're set on coming, by the looks of this puppy's claws," here he paused, and gave the headless body a light kick, "they'll come armed. We might as well be prepared."

He sighed for a moment, and then eyed the burning wreckage of Qwell's home. It had been quite an explosion, he had not expected that.

"Someone tell me if I'm crushing its head quick, else I'm goin' to see if I can help with firefightin'."
