Stilgar stands up and arms himself, as Magnus raises his head and breathes a cone of flame, catching two of the giants, who let out howls of pain and surprise. In the sudden light, the party sees four crude, beady-eyed giants in ratty furs, wielding enormous clubs, with crooked, yellow teeth jutting from their leering mouths.
Auric struggles but is unable to free himself from the net that was cast on him. Jon's spell brings a burning orb into existence before rising, which rolls into the giant that entangled Auric. The ball barely comes to the thing's knees, but it gives a yelp as clothing and flesh singe with the contact.
