So here's the situation. There's a building which has (about) 10-25 floors and it's now about to collapse. On the top of the building OR somewhere in the middle of that building I have three of my characters. One of them is a girl who can communicate with animals ( especially birds ), and therefore make them do anything she wants. Other one is an amateur wizard who has only recently started to practice magic and so he's still quite bad at it. Third one is either an old man in his eighties OR a young chap in his twenties who is a quite a nerd but expect for his brilliant mind, has no special powers. Which one it is, I haven't really decided yet. I've been trying to figure this out for last two months and still haven't found the answer and now I'm trying to find new angles to look at this scene... For a second I thought that the girl could have called some big birds to come to their rescue, but I decided that it's too much like in Lord of the Rings. Also in my dream, where I first got this idea one of the three people could fly but I'm not really fond of flying men... This scene isn't really THAT important that I can quite easily just leave it out but since I'm in no hurry I've been trying to figure something out. + Oh almost forgot! These people don't have any kind of technology to help them ( not that it would help that much anyway, no way to turn an iPad into a parachute ). Thank you!
