You decide to be DIPLOMATIC.
You TALK with the BANISHED MONSTER, asking it what's wrong.
It stops scratching and stares at you.
It seems... hopeful.
Nino: Looks like they could really use a friend. See if you can converse with them!
You keep following the choice of DIPLOMACY.
You ask if it wants to be your friend.
It shakes for a moment.
Then it starts... crying?
Will you keep following DIPLOMACY, or will you try another option?
STEALTH has two sub-choices: FLEE and END FIGHT.
COMBAT has two sub-choices: ATTACK and DEFEND.
DIPLOMACY has only one option: TALK.
What will you do?
tl;dr: Nino takes pity and resolves to talk it out. Asks for friendship, and monster is sad. Narrator exposits on encounter options. By the way, there's a narrator.
