After a few more days of travel and some small encounters later, the group climbed a fair amount up the side of Mt. Telwargath to a cave looking for some wild blue mountain scragweed to finish their potions of invulnerability. Our on a cliffside, they come to a cave opening with the plant growing all around. Og is holding one of the many cookbooks from his pack, reading off some of his favorite dishes.
Og: "Ohhh!! Dis wun gud!! Chicken-fry buholder eye stalk!! Mmmmm...."
Heinrich: "How can that lump even read?"
Garion, glancing over at Og's book: "It's all pictures."
Heinrich: "Hey Og, ever have gnoll?"
Og: "Gnoll tough... greasy."
Heinrich: "How about dragon?"
Og: "Never eat dragon. Og hear dragon YUM!"
Dragon announces he's checking out the cave and Garion announces he's picking some of the scragweed. I inform Dragon about what he sees in the cave.
Dragon: "Uhh.... Og, ever eat chimera?"
Og: "Hmm... no, wanted to try tho.... "
Dragon: "Here's your chance!!"
Dragon draws his swords and is backing out of the cave. Two chimera follow challenging him. The party rolls initiative.
Og: "Oooo!! Og happy!"
Og draws his short sword; a weapon he only uses to butcher kills. Heinrich starts off combat with a mirror image. One chimera leaps at Dragon, the other at Garion. Og leaps at the one on Garion and tackles it to the ground stabbing it.
Og: "Maybe each part taste different! Maybe chimera like smorgasbord all in one!!"
Heinrich, casting Burning Hands and hitting the chimera Og is on top of: "Here Og, let me help you with that one!"
Og: "Get snake part next! Snake not gud raw!"
Garion runs over to help out Dragon who's taken a few hits now. After another round or two, the chimera are dead. Og begins butchering the beasts.
Og: "Hmm.... Og have problem..."
Dragon: "What's that Og?"
Og: "Og no know how to cook chimera!"
Dragon: "How about in a stew?"
Og: "OOOOHHH!! Chimera is pot-luck stew all in one!! Dragon smart!!"
Garion: "Why do you encourage him??"
