The Citadel of Chaos

You hit the creature a damaging blow.
But to your dismay,
your sword tangles itself within the beast's long hair.
You try to pull, but it slashes at the sword
and knocks it out of your hand across the room.
You are now defenceless.
You may either continue the fight with your bare hands,
or cast a Strength Spell.
You decide to use a Strength Spell, and continue fighting until you win.

You then retrieve your sword.
