The first thing you see is the body of an elderly man lying on the floor amid broken chairs. A disgusting, wattled thing is bent over the body, ripping the flesh from its torso with jutting teeth. It notices you and, wiping its dripping mouth on a napkin held fastidiously in one claw, it lurches toward you.
Do you draw your rapier and attack it now while the chance offers?
Do you shut the door and flee?
