Grandmother
Pointing at the fleeing beast, "Give chase, don't let it get away!", she snarls.

Snatched into reality by the wave of Grandmothers hand, the beasts own flickering shadow gives chase and attacks.

Vashkar grumbles and lashes his tail in irritation as the snow beast begins to flee, drawing several of his companions behind it and back into line with his shot. Adjusting the angle of his bow, he looses the flaming arrow, arcing it high to lead the beast and meet it along its path of retreat. Now well-lit, the arrow streaks through the sky aflame and begins to descend like a falling star, just as Vashkar has breathed life into another and drawn it back....

When the beast turns and runs, Kaze gives chase. He curves up around the beast and delivers a crushing flying kick to the beast's head, following up with a downward punch into it's right shoulder as he lands next to the beast.

Bolo Sees Kaze giving chase and percieves an opportunity to flank the beast will soon arise…

Killishandra lets loose another savage, bestial howl. Rather than an attempt at dominance, this time it is victory cry intended to send her foe scurrying away to find somewhere to lick its grievious wounds and hope that other predators won't find it to finish it off.

Keiri sees no reason to pursue the beast, leaving such things to the warriors.

Round 5[/b]
Killishandra releases an unearthly howl
(click to show/hide)
The seconds tick on as you listen to the low moaning of the beast and the hollow reply of its shadow. Then there is a viscous snarl followed by a fading echo of a whimper. A low moan of disappointment rolls in from the dark and then there is silence.

It is 16 tiring hours since the hunt began. You need to uncover the tracks the predator seemed to be following, you need to sleep.

Killishandra wipes her blade passingly clean on the snow before returning it to its scabbard.

"Come on," she grunts at the rest of the party once she's followed her tracks back to where the beast first came upon them, then casts about for her bearings. "We've got a princess to save."

Killishandra’s search for some clue comes up empty. The predator did seem to be following its prey towards the mountains so without tracking the kidknappers the best you can do is hasten in that general direction in the hope of finding your quarry before exhaustion sets in. The night is black without stars. Time passes as an endless trudging through ever deeper snow and the hills gradually become steeper. Even Grandmother eventually stops complaining and you carry on in silence. It is difficult to judge how long you were walking when the orange red speck of Artmor, the war god’s star, is spotted flickering low in the starless sky. A portend perhaps? Then there is a flash of lightening. By the light of that bolt you see you are at the crest of a long valley filled with a jumble of great blocks of ice and huge boulders. At the far end a great wall of ice, a tongue of a glacier bracketed by black granite cliffs. What you took to be Artmor, is an orange light issueing from an ice cave about 50’ up the sheer ice-wall of the glacier’s face.

Kaze stops and stares up at the ice wall and up towards the cave opening. He is reminded of a saying of his people, that he in a soft voice shares with his companions. "Following a false light only leads you deeper into darkness." He considers climbing the wall, but without tools climbing the sheer ice wall seems an overly optimistic proposition. He pauses to hear his companions' thoughts.

We need to know what sort of foe we face -- Dare we risk our winged friend getting a look from a higher angle?

If we can lure them out of the cave to fight, someone might slip in behind to reach the hostage. If we have to fight inside the cave, the terrain may be tight and our options may be limited.

Killishandra turns to Grandmother.

"Vashkar isn't going to have a problem, but do you have anything in your bag of tricks that will get one or more of the rest of us up to that cave mouth without making a noise?"

Vashkar wings his way upward and across the valley keeping his distance his keen night vision enables him to see well from the edge of the faint firelight projecting out of the cave. Directly in front of the cave the ice is smooth, perhaps a trickle of water flows in the brief summer, but a few feet to either side the cold dry surface of the ice has calved and cracked providing some chance of hand-holds. There is a  3' wide ledge at the level of the cave disappears out of the reach of the faint light to either side. The kidknapper’s do not seem to have posted any guards. Perhaps they do not expect any pursuit.

While he is away Grandmother answers Killishandra’s question with a cackle “ha ha, big tough killer-lady need puny old grandmother’s help eh? Well, deary ol’ Nar-Kesh might has a little something but even the spirits can’t turn a brick into a bladder. P’raps the great spirits send shorty here up" she nods in Bolo’s direction.
