Out of the brush on the left of the road slink three, four legged, forms matching the hunters description. A low rumble emanates from their chest as the beast alternates between growling and a strange sound similar to a wheezing laugh. The creatures waste no time as they rush headlong towards the party while everyone is still reacting to the warnings. The first one rushes Eilianne with its slobbery jaw aimed at her knees and snapping shut on air as she deftly twists out of the way. The middle on rushes Alain, ducking under his shield as he turns to face the threat it reaches its teeth towards Alain's sword arm snapping down on the hardened steel of his plated armour but unable to bite in or find purchase as its momentum forces it to release as it spins around to face him. The last one charges in with its head low as it barrels towards Raznar's ankles biting furiously but as Raznar turns, his greaves block the way and the hyena shakes then bounces back a few feet ready for retaliation.
(everyone roll initiative please and declare your action. I'm going to try something new/different for initiative by dividing initiatives into groupings. Each group (1,2,3,etc) will act together with the first one from the grouping posting getting the first action and so on. If it doesn't work out we will go back to normal initiative afterwards.
