The group tied themselves together in a long line attached to Sunny's pegasus. The order was Sir Carrius, Meylon, Selinorr the Seer, Barbarius, Lady Marrissa, Xan, Bosh Iron Breaker with Bane bringing up the rear because he was the largest. Selinorr cast his spells and the group began to float and bob in the air. Sunny took to the air slowly at first, but the take off was jerky as the pegasus tried to gain altitude. The party members bumped into eachother repeatedly as the flying horse climbed higher and higher gaining speed. Finally it leveled out and everyone stabilized at more comfortable distances from one another. Bosh seemed to be having a tough time of it as did Lady Marrissa. Bane had to admit it was a tad disturbing floating hundreds f feet off the ground being dragged along like dead weight. The group was half way across when the creatures attacked. They were flying lizard like beasts. three in all. Barbarius recognized them as the same type that were seen flying outside the tower windows before they were magically transported here. They had razor sharp teeth and looked...hungry. They were 500 feet away and closing fast.
"What is blazes are there things!?" Bane readied his bow and noched an arrow. "Sunni, can you go any faster? I don't think we want to do this over this pit!" Bane began twisting around to begin lining up a shot, "Barbarius! That eye of yours tell you anything about these things?"
THEY ARE YEMA! NASTY BEASTIES THAT CLAW AND BITE! THIS ISN'T RIGHT, BUT WHATEVER, Barbarius looks down. Some of the Yema are flying below. Barbarius grabs his axe and with his other hand starts working the knot on his rope. TAKE CARE OF EVERYONE PUP! I'M GOING TO TRY AND GET YOU GUYS SOME TIME TO GET AWAY! With this being said, Barbarius pulls the knot out, releasing himself from from the group, dropping straight down. He quickly grabs his axe with both hands readies himself for a painful impact, painful for the Yema, that is.
