Chegs readies a flask of oil while Tet fumbles with his tinderbox.
Meanwhile the others try to hold back the tide of rats. Dougal stabs 14 rats, while Willie whacks 11. Even Potty gets in on the action, clubbing 4 rats that slip past the front line.
Chegs hurls the oil into the intersection, and then Tet throws the lit torch. There is a whoosh of flame, and 68 rats are barbecued!
The surviving rats retreat to the south, shrieking in terror.
What next, heroes?
