"I don't only
strip people naked!" Juniper protests far louder than she really should. "It's dress-up magic, which lets me change just about anything about something's appearance. It's not just for people, though I often use it for that. Makeup, dresses, hair, eye color… it's not too hard to change our flesh and bones, either. Height, weight, bone structure, you name it. I mean, we're basically always changing as our cells die and regenerate. I just take that process over.">>742539
You nearly cough up your second drink, but you manage to choke most of it down; at least a third runs down your cheeks into your neckline, leaving a sticky trail across your skin. Your eyes tear up, burning with pain. Cycle laughs at the display. "Giving up already? C'mon, Cap! Thought you were way stronger than that. Or did I hear wrong about the pony who stole The Golden Vein?

You manage to catch a small trout, but it's a bit shrimpy, all things considered.
The culinarian nods with approval, then looks down at the surface of the water. He raises his paw for a few moments, falling utterly still. Then, in a blur, his paw shoots out and retracts, clutching the fattest bass you've ever seen. Naught but a single ripple stirs the surface of the water.

In any case, you proceed eastward, and the torch sconces to the north and south light your way as you pass them, marking your step over their thresholds. In time, you come to the end of the hall. The eastern wall has collapsed in on itself, but you realize that this didn't change the intended architecture all that much.
Before you, between the end of the path on which you stand, and the collapsed wall, is a circular pit, deliberately crafted. Small panels and platforms jut out from the sides of the walls, in almost a spiral shape. Some of the pit has collapsed, while much of it remains intact… but portions of the intact spots look unstable. It appears that this is a test of dexterity, agility, and climbing ability, made trivial if one has any capacity of flight.>>742542
"Absolutely," Hmm says. "Anything you want me to look out for or study?"
As you come within sight of the massive galleon docked at the lake and the campsite nearby, you see your allies gathered near a bonfire just north of the camp. Kukulcan's lookouts wave in greeting, recognizing you from when the crews met just before the expedition began.Roll #1 5 + 1 = 6
