    You are standing in hilly woods. It's a pleasant day in Spring. You're standing next to a fig tree, munching on a fig. Mmmm...figs.

    What do you do?

    Since figs don't ripen till June, you ate your last fig and have to go back to the store to get more.

    In Spring, not in spring. The capital letter S implies it is a city or region name.

    Wolfgang and sonhouse, being the experts on fig trees, escape the fate that the rest of you suffer from...puking from eating unripe figs!

    MrPhil looks closely. They are right! The figs are unripe. The roots are gnarled and make the ground near the tree uneven.

    A small group stands silently...Banana King is standing confused...he doesn't understand why he feels ill. Palynka waits patiently for the nausea to pass. Thomaster mutters to the others about how the area is named after the spring season...despite having summer fruits!

    Sbacat wanders off into the woods. There is an agonized scream and the sound of a Monster gobbling him from the direction he wandered off in!

    Sbacat's brother, avalanchecat dives to the ground and rolls into a ditch to escape the horrible Grue in the bushes! His brother cat is gone!!!! What to do!!!

    [b][i]MrPhil begins to examine the roots closely. He finds dirt and bugs. The bugs look edible. His belly grumbles.

    Everyone is awfully hungry.

    Vultures begin to circle overhead.

    If vultures are circling overhead then something is already dead. They don't wait for creatures to die, they are attracted to the smell of animals already dead. They won't circle over a creature unless the creature is giving off the odor of ethyl mercaptan, which is an odor given off by the decay of a dead animal.
