    Cool a-clanking

    In this sentence.

    I don't want one of you trying to get away a-clanking with magic... you'd be spell-traced and hunted down

    Is what's in red saying: I don't want one of you trying to get away leaving a so noisy magic trail ...that a mage will hunt you down.?

    I don't quite get this a-clanking at all.

    Thanks a lot

    Well, there are three knights being besieged by mages and enemies in their own palace. One of them, father of the other two, says one of them must get away at least to revenge. The father shows he knows more than one combat spell he uses against enemies, while he's been always ranting and raving about magic. A son ask him to teach them magic in order to be stronger in the fight, but the father is not wanting to teach anything because the survivor could be traced -if he deploys magic- by mages and eliminated, avoiding all possible revenge.

    Does it help?

    Thank You for the assistance.

    Re: a-clanking

    I suppose he is saying that if a person casts a spell that person can be traced using that spell.

    Yes, thanks, but this a-clanking, what does it exactly mean? Clank is for noise.

    Is the sentence I am asking for the meaning saying that the one who get away can be traced if he deploys magic like he was making very much noise and therefore easy to cath?

    Yes, it is being used figuratively, it is saying that if he uses magiic it will be akin to making a lot of noise, and will make him easy to trace.
