course a blessed cross to carry around for personal protection against any breed is always near at hand, while a snack or two of whole garlic cloves keeps away the Pharyngian and the Daztrophic variants. And my favorite stake is a wonderfully carved shaft of red oak, with a heavy mallet to drive the point home.
“Hmm? Actually, yes, I have a burlwood stake, as well as a white oak and a dark, rich cherry one, for those other breeds. I have holy water to saturate the Apostaphus breeds, and both rice and salt for the Endrophageos to count before they can attack me. And just in case, I have my copy of the Guide with me at all times, in case I run into one of the rarer breeds.
“No, I don’t think I’ve ever heard of the Igoracus breed. And… hm, it’s not in the Guide. Why do you ask?”
