I sat squatted on a rock, quietly waiting for someone to step up and say a word or two. When no one did, I stood up to get everyone's attention, hoping that I wasn't the only one around with experience.
"I know this doesn't sound reassuring," I started, eyeing everyone seriously. "but if you're not ready to bring your A game, go home. These things are stronger than you, faster than you, and they will kill you. I don't care if you're champion of the crucible or captain of the guard, 'cause the moment you think you're better than them, you're dead. If you're alone or badly hurt, don't even think of taking one. Last time I saw someone do that, they got ripped limb from limb until I could barely recognize what was left, and the Rahkshi who did it made the whole thing look like child's play."
I paused to let that sink in.
"They're as capable with their hands as they are with their staffs, and their powers are all over the board. I'm not an expert, but I think their colours might be an indicator of what type they are. Even so, it's better to play it safe at the beginning for a better grasp of the situation. As for a measure of their strength, a single Rahkshi can be worth up to three well-trained Toa or more, so if we're facing an equal or bigger amount, we run. No questions asked."
