Challenge #04224-K206: A Dire Incident

A predator late at night was sneaking up on Gikka. It met, and ran in terror from, the angry claws and teeth of a protective Lilbit. -- Anon Guest

Kobolds, like the Gobelliin, are one of the few species whose destiny is usually to end in a brief and crunchy squeak. There's an awful lot of creatures that view them as food. Including the Kobolds and Gobelliin.

None of this mattered to the lone Dire Wolf creeping up on the camp. It was hungry enough to approach despite the fire, because it smelled live food. The Kobold was huddled up in a big fur, but that didn't matter to the wolf, either. It knew enough to dig for sleepers under their covers.

https://peakd.com/fiction/@internutter/challenge-04133-k115-lawsuits-from-ignorance -- Anon Guest

Most citizens of Mashandar had no idea why the gigantic CRC ships appeared in the sky, large as the moon, and hanging in the sky in precisely the way that moon-sized eggs don't[1]. They were largely concerned with trying to get through their day.
