That however would change...

The farmhouse was north of their position, as the yordle and the pixie sensed their surroundings at the fields to the west of them, they hear...an odd buzzing noise. The sounds were a low hum, and over in the distant field some of the crops were falling down, something was out there. Something was really big out there, judging by the path through the crops the thing was making as it went in circles and turns, cutting down crops. The yordle could make out from their distance a large carapace perhaps, but it isn't too clear what it is unless they get closer if that seems like the only option at this point...

Wiz catches the insect in the corner of his eyes. He bends down and moves closer, weary of it's presence. It's aura doesn't seem to be hostile... Yet...

Wiz slowly held his right hand behind his back, and a crackling could be heard in the air. His metal claw started to charge up with electrical pulses as he watched the strange... Shell... He moves closer, until he was at a point he could make out what it was...

As Wiz closes in, suddenly the insect stood upright, its form was made out but the darkness of the night hid its colors-

Attachment 568273

It was an unusual giant bug, about 8 feet in length with a hefty outer shell. It stands upright, crossing its unusual clawlike appendages which vibrate very fast. Two enormous maws at its head, a huge thin stinger...it was like this insect was abused and put together by many species yet it doesn't seem like a construct. Small traces of dark magic can be sensed by Wiz, the same found in the Howling Marsh nearby. It seems likely this bug might be influenced or made by said magic, but at this point it didn't matter. The eyes beneath its maws shimmer, looking around as if searching for any danger...

Not sensing anything though, it falls back down to its normal stance like a roach and twists and turns its head, its facing is away from Wiz currently...

Wiz narrows his eyes. He observed the creature carefully, seeing if his aura can give off any information. But there is only so much this yordle can do. He isn't a scholar, and though he knew this bug was affected by dark magic, there is nothing more he could find out.

He moves closer, raising his electric claw. He looked for a soft spot from the back, making as little sound as possible. Then, when Wiz was close enough, he jumped up and struck straight for the creature's neck, still not making any sound despite the energy he used and the intensity of the situation...

The strike was sound as Wiz sank his claw just in between the carapace plates of the head and the back, the electricity coursed through the insect which seems to be suspectible to said element. It recoiled almost immediately standing upright as Wiz, with his claw firmly in its cavity, was stuck onto its back. He could almost hear a low roar from the insect, and the smell of burning as the insides of the insect slowly but surely became roasted. The ambush was swift and ended in a moment of a struggle, as the insect fell forward dead, the burns were visible under the carapace shell.

...However, Wiz's senses pick up the surroundings after the skirmish, there was more movement around him to the north, east and south. No other information was available as the tall stalks of the crops blocked his view.

Wiz's eyes widened as he noticed there was more movement. He twists his head towards the directions they were coming from, trying to tell where they are. He gritted his teeth, since within the dark night it was too hard to see, and he was too tired to accurately sense the auras...

Nym... Take my back incase I don't see it... As Wiz finished the sentence, the pixie flew from his shoulder to his back, looking around furiously. She didn't seem to be extremely worried, and seems to be having a bit of fun, though she knew that it wasn't a light matter...

Wiz held up his hand, pointing it towards the sky. He whispered something, though it could not be heard. Faint lightning connected him and the sky, though it wasn't strong enough to be seen by the naked eye. The clouds above him started to gather together, turning black with sparks able to be seen in it...

The movement of stalks got louder, especially towards the south coming towards his location. The other directions were either slowly, or dimming out as if going in different directions.

...Then there was silence. All the movement ceased, and the air whistled quietly through the trees outside the field. The moon was still showing a bit of light through some of the dark clouds, barely through any gaps. Wiz and Pixie couldn't hear a thing...

Suddenly, the movement got insanely loud like something was charging from the south towards where they were! The rustle of stalks falling down was like crackling as whatever was to the south was fiercely making its way to Wiz! A low buzzing was slowly getting louder! Contact was going to happen any moment!

Wiz looked behind him, reacting quickly to the noise. But he was too slow as the giant bug leaped at him, both the claws striking. Nym charged her Glade powers, creating a shield that blocked one of the pincers, but the other one shot straight at Wiz's face. He managed to move his head to the side, though it wasn't enough as the bug's pincer clawed through the yordle's cheek.

Holding back the pain, Wiz willed forth the powers of the dark clouds. The electrical pathway between him and the sky intensified, to the point people could see a line of electric running from the sky to the ground. Just when the bug prepared for another strike, the clouds above Wiz shot a lightning straight at the giant bug, a bright light of electric and the roar of thunder shot straight at the bug in front of Wiz...

The amplified lightning struck down from above, the shell was a conductor and drew the lightning to it! The bug made a terrific screech as it was fried almost instantly, falling sideways dead. However, the only problem was the noise it made at the end, as Wiz heard more sounds coming from the other directions once more. Worse, the humming was the loudest at the farmhouse back the other way.

His cheek stung, but considering how big those maws on the bugs were, the little yordle was fortunate not to lose his face. As the humming became louder, it became hard to concentrate on any direction...Pixie behind him though saw some movement and the slow movement of a large stinger getting closer as if ready to attack his flank!
