   Although the massive beast is still furiously trumpeting its rage, the wounds your team has inflicted seemed to finally register in its mind as a threat.  The shot to the knee seems to be the last it will take.  Stumbling and limping as it backs into the flaming jungle, it almost absentmindedly stuffs the gory morsels it had been carrying into the terrifying maw that is its face.  The remaining tentacles and tusks waving wildly in an attempt to dissuade pursuit.

Snow is happy to see the creature leave.  She grabs up her kit and crawls into the truck to check on Sam as she calls the others.  >>Team, Snow.  Looks like Sam took it hard when that thing hit the vehicle.  Anyone else hurt?<<

She sets up next to where Sam is strapped into the seat and hooks up the diagnostic leads as she waits for the others to call in.

They were lucky the creature retreated, Sammy thought as she gathered some mana.  While it was retreating, she wanted it to go as far as possible, so she threw another stunbolt after it, something to remember them by.

"I just have some bruises," Sammy said to Snow, "they'll heal, provided we don't have to do this again.  Who's bright idea was it to go through the jungle and not wait a couple of days for the plane?"

If I can't hit it anymore, let me know and I'll remove that part of the post.

O'Connor yelled after the monster, "Where ya going? Don't wanna work for a meal?" As the creature retreated, it's large form stopped obscuring the fire Sammy had started. He paused, trying to focus on his target, before firing. After shooting, O'Connor moved to the side to flank the creature, while giving the fire a wide berth.

Snow clamors through the debris scattered in the truck to get to where she can treat Sam, who is unconscious.  She sends a message as she opens her kit and begins attaching various leads to her companion.  >>Team [Snow]: Sam is unconscious in here.  I am tryig to get him at least back to where he can wake up.<< 

"Come on, Sam, come to."  The kit pings as it begins sending its medicines into Sam.

Sam's head hurt. It took him a while to sort out where he was, but he soon realized he was still in the driver's seat of the truck, but with a medkit beeping away and Snow peering at him in concern. He groaned as memories started slipping into place. Rather than looking out at the road, for fear of what he'd see, he turned to his teammate. "If you're taking the time to patch me up, it must mean nothing's trying to kill us. Not right now, at least. Right?"

With the thing gone, Sammy also came towards the truck.
"Nope, we drove it off.  Unfortunately we're still stuck in the bloody jungle.  who's bloody idea was it anyway to take this way instead of waiting two days for a plane.  If we continue this way it will be a lot more than two days before we get to Lagos."

O'Connor tried to line up another shot, but the density of the jungle prevented that. As much as he wanted to pursue the beast, going deeper into the jungle was probably a bad idea. He reluctantly let the creature escape and returned to the road. He called out to the team, "Gonna see if the dead guys left anything we can use." He started scavenging among the wrecked truck and poking through the bits of gore that the creature left behind.

Snow pats Sam on the shoulder, probably just about the only place he was not hurting right now.  "Yeah, it is apparently gone for now, but I think it may have trashed the other vehicle.  Still we might be able to scavenge from it.  You are actually not in too bad shape right now so I am going to disconnect you and go see if anyone else needs help."

She disconnects the leads and packs the kit back up then leaves the truck.  She stretches when she manages to climb out and calls out.  "Hey, anyone else ready to say they are hurt and needing help?  If not, I am going over to check on my unconscious patients."

"I have a headache and some bruises," Sammy said, "when that creature attacked I got the truck in my face."

I have currently 5S and 2P.

Snow moves over to where Sammy is and examines her,  "Would you like me to try to take care of some of that?"

"If you could," Sammy said, "How are the others?"

Snow smiles as she opens her kit next to Sammy and begins attaching the leads to her patient. "I just left Sam.  He was bruised a lot from the beast hitting the truck, but I think he will be good.  At least he will if we don't get any more action like this for a bit.  Con I haven't seen.  You know how macho he is so he probably would not tell me he is hurt even if he is.  And Clem has not chimed in either, so I will go look at both of them after I try you."  She waits patiently for the medicines to begin their work on her friend.

"We still got Jane and the boy unconscious, as well.  Not so auspicious a start."

"Thanks, that did help," Sammy said.  While the headache wasn't completely gone, she still felt much better.  Now the only thing she could really use was a good night sleep, but that probably went for everybody.
"I think it's best we get out here as quickly as possible," she said to Sam as Snow went back to her other patients.

It is hard to tell with all the smoke from the burning jungle it escaped through if your final attacks had any effect.  A quick search finds only two usable weapons, the AKs carried by the two preteen escorts of the spokesman.  They are somehow still alive, but are completely uninterested in fighting you.

The damage the truck suffered, while serious, is not incapacitating.  You are able to get the cable untangled about the same time that Ms Johnson and the driver rejoin the land of the conscious and cognizant.

"Looks like we missed one hell of a party, everyone still alive?
