Instead of engaging, therefore, she retreats back into the jungle and begins to set up an ambush for the creature. How elaborate it is depends on how much time she has - and her player will need to do a bit of googling to describe what sort of traps she's able to create.
The beast seems quite deeply asleep. It won't wake up anytime soon unless disturbed, so Acacia will have plety of time to set up her traps.
