Krakkans ears perk up as he hears familiar words. He motions to his companions in a "wait a minute" gesture.
If possible: Krakkan says in goblin: "I try to avoid battle at all cost, but I imagine that killing you would be like killing a beetle. You are so small, and we are so large. If you stand down perhaps we won't turn your insides into your outsides..." Intimidation 11
Krakkan lets out a big sigh, "I always hate this part." He then moves up to Hawk and says, "It's nothing, they just don't seem to be interested in being reasonable." He then swings down with two hand axes. Attack: 20 Damage: 5 and Attack: 10 Damage: 6
Forge isn't 100% about what is actually going on at the moment because his senses were not actually with him but elsewhere. Though seeing Krakkan rush off into the building he returns his mind to his own and follows towards the building. Bringing a dancing flame(Produce Flame) into his hand though still not sure exactly what the threat is.
(I'll say that's all Forge does this round because his mind was within his familiar so he's still unsure of what's going on exactly.)
As the goblin charges, Zook focuses on his mind and body. In a split second, he feels the blood pumping through his body, from his heart to his metal senses, and down into his limbs. He feels the energy of excitement, but at the same time, he remains calm and remembers his training. A clear mind is a focused mind.
Holding his staff in his left hand, he finds his balance point, then begins a quick swirling motion with his short sword; a motion meant to confuse and put his enemy on the defensive. When he sees an opening, he stabs forward at the goblin's midsection, then quickly recoils.
Shifting his weight onto his back hand, Zook uses the staff as an an anchor point as he swings his legs high into the air. He sends a kick towards the goblin's head before landing back on his feet and bringing himself back to his starting stance.
The first Goblin gets hit by Mandaway, hit again by Hawk and the mushed by Krakkan. The second goblin gets shot at by Bert, and shouted at to drop his weapon. He does drop the weapon, before falling flat on his face, dead. Which explains why both of Zook's attacks miss.
Forge enters further into the building and approaches the battle scene. "Sorry for being late to the show, I was trying to get a better view of our surroundings. It would seem that this entire town took a barrage of these boulders, many buildings were damaged along with the bridge leading to the stone keep. If I had to guess that keep might be where all the town folk are. Seems the safest place to be when the sky is raining down rocks that are destroying buildings. The town is suppose to have a goblin problem but it would appear we have stumbled into something quite more severe."
Feeling a little out of practice, Zook is certainly glad for the additional help in what is his first fight in quite awhile. After slipping his short sword back into its scabbard, he turns and follows Bert outside to investigate the muffled sounds.
Mandaway moved across to the two cast aside bodies and closed their eyes arranging them in repose. He asked Eldath quietly to grant the little angry folk some measure of peace now and to point them on the way to wherever little angry fellas went after death.
He began to walk out of the temple apologising to Lathander and Mielikki for all the ruckus in their house...
