'When I make them mine, yes,' came the thoughts of Magefrost.
As the arm of the stoned humanoid swung down, Magefrost merely stood there calmly. The arm came crashing down, but there was no mess where Magefrost's gore pile should be. Suddenly the whole arena shifted and a vast hole opened up, swallowing the purple glowing humanoid.
The hole extended and grew. It shifted and distorted itself and arose out of the ground, like the maw of a giant worm beneath the earth. And it looked hungry.
'I'm sure your mental energies will work fine on a mindless being,' came the thoughts of Magefrost, as he popped out of the dirt, standing atop the earth worm's "head".
And then the maw plunged down over Maroman, with a great chomp.
