Usage examples of "keak".

Laughing raucously, Keak told both lots that they should engage in anatomically impossible acts, but then he continued.

Stubbin, a broad-shouldered mountain dwarf, made a rude gesture at Keak in reply, but he did not argue.

From a half-wit, such constant giggling and laughing could be expected, but Keak was certainly in possession of all normal faculties - except that they were awry.

With Keak and his lunatic presence forgotten, Melf sipped wine and chatted with the young country girl until the last patrons left and the place closed for the night.

Tell me now, and do not try my patience further: Is this Keak a tall and thin elf who is given to hysterical laughter?

Obmi and the crazed elf, Keak, moved carefully once they were well beyond Littleberg.

In fact, because of Keak they were virtually treated as untouchables by the folk of the village.

The villagers, thinking that these ruffians had come to kill both Obmi and Keak, cheerfully directed the group to where the dwarf and elf swilled cheap wine and sported.

Eventually, Keak gave the woman to the ape-ores and they soon killed her.

In the center of the whole group were Obmi and his henchman Keak, well protected by tough humanoids and their powers, of course.

When another disturbance came a half-hour later, Keak was there and ready.

In the hours just preceding dawn, Obmi and Keak worked out a plan of action.

The cat-creature seemed unwilling to come near the center of the party, and that meant that it was most certainly vulnerable to spell and weapon - at least, those enchanted weapons wielded by Obmi, Keak, and a few others of the officers of the motley collection of humanoids.

Without either Keak or Obmi to keep them in line, natural hostilities, bullying, and differences would send the motley assembly into separate bands immediately.

He and Keak must have simply ridden on, leaving the rest to bear the brunt of things.
