    If we have the option of just walking off we should take it. Frankly we don't need a fight right now and we definitely don't need to be taken somewhere else again. If that isn't an option then I guess we take the duel, it's quickly become the best of a bad bunch and if we can't just walk off we will probably need to fight anyway. On the subject of the sun burn, we can keep going quite a while with it (9 actions plus 18 for the potions) and once we rest there should be no long term repercussions.

    Alright, I know a "Are you sure you want to do that?" when I see it lol

    And since Yulia didn't even brought up my full offer, fine, I'm ok with leaving , I didn't want the stupid spider girl anyways!

    We can always come back for the spider girl later. Duel starts to look like a really bad idea now. Let's walk away.

    Oops sorry somehow I missed the addition of the getting the spider girl as a slave part XD

    I've been busy irl and it seems I missed a lot. Going to hard veto this duel, if we lose again and Yulia ends up deeper in the bugs' lair we'll have a hard time digging ourselves out of this hole. Better to head north and regroup with the party.

    Before Yulia leaves, she should ask if a Wandering Monster has appeared here recently, since the existence of 4 implies each of the four locations we can visit has one. Given the naming convention of The Rack, we can probably expect something like the Iron Maiden or the Wooden Horse. It's also interesting that The Rack was insectile in nature and took us south to the bug girls. Maybe one of the others is serpentine and would take us north if we lost?

    Also, now that we know what lies to the south, we can ask Hess and her people for more info on these bugs before we come back.

    I was going to agree with Hess until I remembered we have Cloak. Yulia being invisible seems like enough of an edge to justify heading right in.

    Does cloak work on Yulia? I forgot if it counts as a support spell.

    Sunburnt will keep doing damage until Yulia has a rest. Honestly, I think we have to take this rest. The snakegirls having their way with the group is relatively harmless, compared to what the girls usual have to endure when getting captured.

    Cloak is a utility spell and does indeed work on Yulia.

    We used cloak a few times on the previous floor, then got powerful and just killed everything.

    Cloak is not a bad idea but we will not be in much of a condition to actually do anything but watch. We could use a health potion but even then we could easily be in a situation where we can't realistically do anything. And the snake girls are clearly trying to help them (unlike the scorpions) so I doubt anything too bad will happen (other than Maple regretting joining up again).

    I have to agree with Gambio (and Hess) that resting (to deal with the sunburn) and hoping it is all fine is the best idea.
    I will point out that not long ago we were considering getting into a fight in order to rest, this is just keeping out of a fight in order to rest.

    We wouldn't necessarily have to fight. Just cool the emotions enough, if necessary,with itty bitty blizzard, to remind everyone of the importance of consent.

    I don't think blizzard can be turned down, probably not a great tool for trying to be friendly. Using it to threaten, sure, but not for use on friends.
