The Third Voyage of Mendez

They are almost half way home when Mendez starts to get cold feet.
Perhaps his Father will still be angry?
Altering their course slightly, Mendez secretly extends their journey time.
Landing on another of the small islands, Mendez and the Hamsters are surprised by a huge creature in the likeness of a man but black of colour with a single eye and teeth like boar's tusks. The creature drives them into a small cave.
It then rolls a huge bolder to block the entrance.
Mendez hurls himself against the barrier to no avail.
The next morning, this monster rolls back the bolder, reaches into the cave and pulls out the fattest of the squealing Hamsters. To everyone’s horror, the poor Hamster is immediately skewered alive and roasted over a fire. The foul creature eats the blackened Hamster in front of the others and laughs.
The giant then lazily pushes the bolder back in place, but Mendez cleverly stops in closing completely with his metal shield.
The Giant fails to notice his mistake and is fast asleep in moments.
Mendez has to strip naked and lather himself up with his soap, before he can squeeze through the gap.
Stealing up behind the monster, Mendez silently takes out one of the red-hot iron spits from the fire and then drives it deep into the monster’s single eye!
The creature wakes screaming and flounders about, but it can do nothing to prevent Mendez from taking it's treasure, freeing the remaining crewmen and escaping aboard the Sky-ship.

Whoo Hoo!
Mendez must have leveled after that one.

PS - I bet he enjoyed the soaping-up ;)

If I remember correctly, the treasure was a flock of rams :D

Are you implying plagiarism?
I'll have you know that the adventures of 'Mendez' are entirely original and that he's never even heard of 'Sinbad'.
Also that he won't be meeting any 'Sirens' as that was 'Odysseus'.
P.S. Better tasty Sheep that rusty old Orc swords!

Ah, then I guess we see the return of some kind of dried magic mushrooms soon ;-)

PS: And sorry for the confusion with the Odyssey! Even I never heard of Sinbad :D But I'm sure one of the hamsters is called Sindbad ;-)

'Sinbad the Hamster!'
Love it.
