OCC: Ummm, let's say Braandu is modeled after me. Or vice versa. Clumsy. So, you are right.
But since this is fantasy roleplaying, I whip out my magic wand and "Presto!" The rocks are falling from their places set the nearby walls of the MASSIVE ROOM, as well as from the tunnel we just stepped out of!
Handy, this wand.
Hey, I'm humble. I make mistakes sometimes. It's disappointing, of course -- disappointing that it's only October, and here it is: I've already made a mistake this year -- but, like I said, I'm humble. Probably the humblest guy on earth!
IC: Klaatu squeaked out a warning to Braandu... too late! It should have been obvious with the boulders set up in the wall, but he had been walking behind his son and had been daydreaming."By the depths! Rockfall!"
Braandu was being bowled over beneath nearly a ton of granite! Klaatu had only an instant to save himself. He whipped out a vial from his robe... one of his favorites. The sticky substance his people had long synthesized based upon analysis of spider webs. A recent development, since Graandu had not ventured near the planet's surface (with its spiders) until the last thousand years or so.
He flicked open the cork with his thumb and slung it to one side where the most rocks were rolling toward him from the right. In a split-second the glue oxidized and foamed; splattering on the rolling rocks. As they turned, the globs of glue touched the ground as the rocks surged forward ominously toward the mole-man... ...and relaxed back in place; stuck to the ground with a gooey web.
Other rocks were only a second away from him on the left. Klaatu vaulted with his staff to the right onto the webbed rocks while the rollers on the left crashed into the ones he was clinging to with reverberating "clunks"... narrowly missing his arm and leg, but crushing the shaft of his staff. A hissing, fizzing sound sputtered from the broken tool.
Klaatu was mortified. His instant thought was, "The Princess! The others! They'll be killed! It's my fault!"
He looked back, afraid to see what had happened to them...
