    Cool stiffly tumbling bodies

    Some kind of magic lightning enters in a ruined room where there have been knight fights and "It swept away furniture and stiffly tumbling bodies, dashed lamps and mirrors...

    Please what can stiffly tumbling bodies mean? Are they human bodies or can it be any kind of stuff?

    Its a hard expression for me. Thanks for the assistance

    Re: stiffly tumbling bodies

    In this context human bodies that have been made rigid.

    Re: stiffly tumbling bodies

    Again from the context, the magic force is throwing them about, making them fall or roll across the room.

    The same use of tumble as to tumble down stairs >> to fall down stairs
