Curious, I went to investigate... and beheld a humongous rabbit. Okay, so it wasn't really humongous, but when you're used to tiny critter-sized rabbits, seeing one the size of a normal mob and with a level tag of sixty-eight is quite a shock in comparison.
For a brief moment I was overcome by panic. I'm not a habitual critter killer (in fact the sad squealing sounds of brutally murdered rabbits and squirrels tend to make me sad), but I'd lie if I said that I'd never committed such an act. In my mind's eye, the giant rabbit became even larger, until it eventually enraged and pounced on me with the words "That's for all the little bunny rabbits!"... but no. In reality he just sat there quietly with his level five girl non-combat pet, who proclaimed that she was lost and asked if I couldn't lead her and Mr Floppy back to camp. An escort, alright.
For a supposedly lost girl she was very quick to stroll off without waiting for any guidance from me, and immediately made a point of getting off the perfectly serviceable road just to walk through the forest - which was of course heavily populated by worgs and bears.
