The stones teleport Megalith to within an inch of the Sentinel. Megalith starts attacking to get -3 DEF for the Woldguardian, can only hit twice because no fury due to Morghoul’s feat. Woldguardian hits and pushes back 1″. The second hit doesn’t push out of 4″ but manages to destroy the Sentinel.

Circle scores 1 point and wins.

Conclusion

The brute could have weaseled his way into 4″ and stopped circle scoring 1 point. Morghoul feating on Round 3 was huge, perfect timing.
