You then look around and see a large, leafy tree. You hack away at some of the branches with your sword, and soon many fresh green leaves are lying on the ground. You pick up the leaves and carry them over to your trap, laying them on the sticks, so that the pit will be entirely covered up.
Your plan was to make moaning noises from behind the deer carcass, so the Chimera would think that the deer was still alive, and close to death. And he would not breathe his fire at you, for that would make the deer unsuitable for eating. But when he comes close enough to the deer carcass, he will fall into your pit. Then you will devise a plan to finish him off.
