Kit's eyes dart around seeing nothing before she glances at the feline to check, seeing that Joya is looking back toward the river.

The ratkin looks over to where the tentacled man is and immediately recognizes the box as the one she had gathered the Rhaiber private thread post 98partial potions she had found. There were a few empty, broken vials in or near the box from the liquids she was able to recognize as healing substances, having used the remaining drabs to stop some of bleeding she had. The box still had six busted vials with some liquid remaining in them, though the colors had kept her from trying them yet. It is obvious some of them had mixed as their colors changed or swirled.

Conner, Continuing Journey but New FriendsThe canine snorts and snickers. "You're welcome. But riding with someone you can't talk to, that sounds awfully boring." Conner pads over to the wreck but mostly leaves the examination to more the technically proficient. There is some debate over the ratfolk's automaton, but the canine has no strong opinions about the strange construct. Instead, he opts to take another look a the trails leading from the wreckage. Even if it is too long for scents to remain, there may be a track or other sign of passage for his sharp eyes.

At Joya's warning, Conner pointed a paw toward the river. "Kit, she's talking about the monster floating and watching us from the stream. It has not approached, but I'd not go near the bank either."

Coner looks over to the salvaged potions and takes a quick sniff. He is not nearly so magically savvy to figure them out just from looking. He scampers closer. Waving his paw, he Mending orisonfixes the vials to minimize the perils of broken glass. Then, he takes a ginger lick of each of the potion mixtures; his lips smack as he tries to place each of them.

John

John looks at the mass of potions that she now has with interest, and makes a clicking sound before nodding; "Yes yes, this is very good, potions can be useful. Would you like assistance with identifying them Customer-Kit? I have a wide range of knowledge and experience in most things arcane or magical." If she is interested, John will attempt to identify or aid in identifying the potions she has.

Once that is done, John glances at Connor and speaks quickly; "We should make haste customer-friends! We would not want to be waylaid by the same bandits that attacked Customer-Kit and her caravan." With that, John will work on getting anything of potential use and toss it into his wagons before getting the oxen teams going towards Kansas City once more.

The vials are...a mess. Some seem to be healing potions, but nearly all of them are either off color or have other colors mixed in. One that seems to be healing type potion is a blood red rather than the normal bright red. Several are different shades of teal. One seems to have green sparkles in it, while another is a veritable rainbow of swirls that are not mixing at all. Two that he can identify as a sort of healing leave differing tingles on his tongue, another feels like he touched an active coal and continue to burn for a full minute, yet another flashes images of amorous activities with various inanimate objects. Through it all, only the healing type potions seem to be the main effect he can identify.

Joya watches as something seems to catch the massive gator's attention and it drifts downstream. A few minutes later there are the sounds of a brief struggle that end with a sharply cut off avian squack.

The hairs on the back of her neck were standing on end. The feline woman was on a knifes edge. Joya was clearly unnerved by what she had seen in the water. "Can't we learn more about those at camp tonight? We should be going don't you think?" Her eyes darted back and forth across the surface of the dark waters.

Kit Crenshaw

“Wait, I don’t know if I would do that. Maybe you should -” Kit raised a quick warning, but her words simply couldn’t spill out fast enough to prevent Connor from dipping his lolling tongue into the uncertain vials. “Oh, okay then. I guess we’re just tasting things. Gosh, I hope none of those are poisonous.

Kit glanced toward John, looking for some sense of confirmation or validation. She did not necessarily anticipate his assertion of his own expertise in all matters mystical, but chose to interpret that rather liberally as its own form of support for her position. “Well, yeah, I guess that sort of know-how could definitely come in handy. I’ve dabbled a tiny bit in magicky-type stuff, but I’m really more of an engineer - mostly mechanical, a little bit of chemical - but I kinda feel like maybe either of our ways of sussing things out mighta been a teensy bit safer than just drinking stuff we found in the garbage.”

Finally, she turned to Joya, nodding enthusiastically at the still-slightly-scary cat’s suggestion. “Yes. Yes!” Kit blurted out before catching herself self-consciously, then continuing in a more measured attempt to sound logical and in-control. “That is, if you’re planning to get outta here and go somewhere else, then I am one-hundred-and-ten-percent in favor of that plan. … I mean, that is, if you’re okay with me tagging along. Dang it, Kit. You shoulda asked that part first.

She glanced from one face to the next with wide, beseeching eyes. The truth was, the only reason she hadn’t left days ago was her uncertainty about traveling on her injured leg, but thanks to Connor that was all taken care of. She could probably strike out on her own if she needed to, but the idea of having some friendly faces around her seemed like it would make travel a lot more safe and secure.

“If it helps, I’ve already gathered most of the salvageable stuff I could find. I’ve got it all loaded up on a cart back there behind the treeline, y’know, just in case more bandits came, and I know I just met you guys, but I feel like I can trust you, y’know?”

Conner, Continuing Journey but New FriendsConner declares two of the healing potions mostly serviceable without bothersome aftertastes. Of course, bothersome for the hearty hound might be a touch more than most would care to stomach.

The bandits beyond his senses, the hound is left only with John's reasonable suggestion, moving on. Conner alights. "Yes, our way is bound for Kansas City. I think we haven't qualms with another in our caravan, Miss Kit. Come along, bring your things, and lets get the wagons back underway!"

The wolfhound shrinks back down to a small dog size and trots away toward the group's wagons. After everyone is resituated, Conner takes his usual place scouting ahead with keen senses.

John nods to the small ratfolk and gives an approximation of a smile; "Safety is in numbers customer-Kit. We will welcome the additional numbers into our group for the additional safety. I fear we have no spare oxen however, though we may try to affix your wagon to the back of my larger one and thus remedy the need for additional beasts of burden." He glances at where she had pointed then looks in the back of his wagon at his automaton; "If you need help getting the wagon to us, I can have my automaton assist." John then leans back in his wagon and starts it slowly to the closest point on the trail to where Kit's wagon is, pulling out a pipe with one of his tentacles and tapping some dried and ground plant particulates into it, before lighting it with magic and beginning to puff on the pipe contentedly.
