The Monkey King is surrounded by what could possibly be hundreds of enemies with swords drawn. His first method of defense? To punch the cave wall he’s trapped next to and bring down a rain of stalactites upon his enemies.
He succeeds in hurting his hand.
The beginning of the journey continues! Will our intrepid and mostly crazy heroes survive the deadly confrontation and regain their road west? Or will they be struck down before their time?
