Yes, if you get drunk and drop off while on guard duty you might get caught by those depending on you, and yes, you might get your throat cut by an enemy fighter, who just happens to make that moment the time for his attack but on Planet Archipelago there are other reasons a well. Right now a Horn-back scavenger is contemplating making a early morning snack out of this fellow's dangling hand and lower arm. Its bite will be sudden and vicious. Besides crushing the bone and severing muscles its twisting head motion as it bites will most likely throw our dozy friend to the ground and dislocate his shoulder. If he doesn't bleed to death, he will lose his job. He will be crippled and he will have to endure the ridicule of having been bitten by a slow moving, stupid, timid scavenger that barley comes to your knees when you're standing. A creature that only attacks things that it thinks smell like they are dead already. So you might want to take a bath as well as stay awake while on duty.
