I approached the first beast and after a few minutes of struggle, it finally relented and put its hands up. I neared the second beast and scared off some prey just in time. It wasn't long before I had spotted the beast laying in wait. I carefully approached and surveyed for an attack vector. It wasn't long and I had it down for the count. But it got up again and I struggled to subdue it. Finally I was able to wield my sword and put it down for good. As I was leaving, I heard a whisper in the wind and was shocked to see the beast rise once again. I spun around and subdued the beast for good. As I continued on I passed many of my fallen brethren. As it grew darker and darker, the trail dwindled to naught and I was growing weary. At last I spotted something. A magical pink and orange faery beckoned in the distance. I approached and was offered a 6th clue to A route. I follow, but alas it was only misdirection. I continued nearing the 3rd beast and eventually arrive, tired and cold. It was a long battle but I was finally able to wrestle the log from it's hands along with the FTF. I tricked the beast and locked him in a dark box to protect future adventurers.
