(initiative rolled with Pariah in chat on Saturday
. Despite the surprise rush by the ape, Jakh manages to act first...by a hair. Need some initiative rolls from others.)
The ape grunted again, as it bared its fangs, attempting to pummel Jakh into oblivion with its charge, its beady red eyes, focused on its target.
Two things happened next, almost simultaneously.
The first was Jakh's wrist-flick. (throwing his magical knife at the oncoming beast) The second was Xiahao's great shout and lunge, as the monk, fearless apparently, closed the space between himself, the ape and Jakh, with a vicious flying kick and strike.
The knife missed its mark, sailing by the ape's bent shoulder, but then turning in an arc in mid-air, and flying back to the thief. (next round its in your hand again)
(need some Siren rolls:))
Meanwhile, Ythedrir, who was about to rush in and attack the same white-ape, instead turned at the sound of another demonic-like grunt, only to see another ape, this one bigger than the one attacking Jakh, and furiously closing in on the Vanirman. Ythedrir the giant suddenly had his own opponent to deal with...
Peering out from inside the barn, Kisanth eye's opened wide at the scene before her. A gray-white ape was about to rip Jakh to pieces, and another ape faced off against Ythedrir. More disturbing yet, there were now four more apes closing in from all directions, nearing the barn, and her new companions.
Lover tensed, awaiting command to strike. The wolf seemed confused, as if he could not smell the beasts, despite now seeing them, and this irritated him.
