A mist had come up from the sea. The grass was damp and a carpet of autumn leaves made the ground slippery. Klane was looking for a way to best his foe without revealing too much of the power of the klane. He set a wide absorption field in a cone pattern to slow down an axe stroke. It might not be obvious to Muttu what was happening when he chose to attack but the dynamics of the conflict would be affected significantly enough to hope to unbalance him.
It was Klane who was unbalanced first, though. He backed into a fallen branch on the edge of one of the fires and stumbled to the ground. In seconds Muttu pressed his advantage and moved in for the kill.
