Tuesday Magic Item – Claws of the Yeti

20 September, 2011

The bandit scrambled up the frozen wall like a spider up a branch.  Leaving his companions behind to be slaughtered.  Kazrig, our ranger, tried to follow but dowslid n the slick wall almost instantly.  “Damn that coward!” he shouted.

“Well, better than fighting another one,” said Levian the Black cleaning his sword.  “I prefer my enemies to flee in terror.”

“Wonder how he climbed so fast?”

“When we catch him, we will ask.”
