Since his bludgeons are ineffective, Taylar intends to change tactics and will attempt to Heat the wolverine he is engaged with, using Lighter Pine to enhance the effect, hoping the creatures will fear fire. He will use his bludgeons to aid in his physical defense.
Changing tactics, it is Raven Elk who is now unable to hit the agile wolverine. The beast bites at him twice during the engagement, but catches only clothing. Taylar uses a piece of lighter pine to cause some internal heat damage to the monster but not enough to generate a visible effect. Raven Elk adds some acidity of his own. The animal is now dazed and hurt
Adisakti and his beast seem to be engaged in some violent dance that, as yet, produces no contact.
Only a few seconds of time has passed. The voraciousness of the wolverines is undaunted and they continue to assault the three men.
