<<OOC: How can roleplaying ever be inappropriate in a roleplaying game? It's perfect.>>
The boots have indeed been a source of endless frustration for Mist, and she was on the verge of pulling them off and throwing them at Quirky so she could be rid of both problems at once. Hopla's suggestion is inspired, and it brings a smile to her face and perks up her ears.
Nothing gets her excited like a game... with the possible exception of learning new things. "That sounds mean, but it could be fun" she says thoughtfully, then gives Hopla a big hug. "Thank you, Spiky Man"
While Ivar has been content to stay at the back of the group and following as Khan directs them, he does occasionally scout smaller trails that the groups considers possiblities. He jogs down side paths,
Now that she gets to treat it like a game, Mist is a lot happier and moving with considerably more enthusiasm through the mushroom-y overgrowth & undergrowth.
Though it requires a little extra effort to counter the effect of the boots, she nimbly crosses the terrain with such grace that she almost appears to be dancing as she skips and twirls past potential hazards.
The fact that its companions seem unable, or at least unwilling, to take paths the droid would take frustrates IG-198. It decides that that is the price they pay for having to breath and having skin that absorbs liquid.

When the group reach a wide ravine, Hopla uses his lightsaber to cut down a tall, skinny fungus tree, and uses the force to direct its fall over the ravine. Mist then balances her way across with two lines of liquid cable that serve as makeshift hand rails for the rest to make it across on.
As Khen is scouting the next bit ahead, Ivar runs off on a side trail to quickly see where it goes, perhaps it might help them. Ivar is sprinting along, vaulting low underbrush when he lands funny, as the ground give way beneath him. He tries to

IG-198 turns and walks from the burnt area, its cloak smoldering a little. "I am guessing that path way would not be suitable for humanoids." Without further comment the droid takes up its position at the back of the group.
