    Hyacinth's bolt penetrates hits the cloaked character with an acidic hiss, shadowy energy spreading into his body. The man stumbles, but he manages to keep his place in his chant.

    The warrior at the front of the group strikes furiously at the paladin, but the paladin's armor deflects the blow.

    Since attacking the sword-guy worked before, Ixen decides to continue doing so.

    Ixen's first attack strikes true, drawing blood from under his opponent's armor. The man jerks to the side in response, causing Ixen's second thrust to hit nothing but air.

    The first cloaked figure sneers at Hyacinth and moves forward, aiming his bow at her, then turning at the last moment to fire on the warforged instead. His shaft flies true, striking where wing meets body in a well placed shot.

    Martha bursts out of the backpack, and quickly sizes up the situation. She moves into position, and lines up a shot that would be sure to send most violators of her lair running, as she tries to drain away the very traits that allow them to be so abhorrent to her. Her jaws stretch open in the signature attack of a dragon, but nothing seems to emerge.

    Move Action: Fly to M13 and land.
    Standard Action: 30' line of Pure Elemental Ennui straight north, striking "Sword Guy", Jopin, and "Cloak 1". Will DC 15 or take 1 point of Intelligence Drain, AND a separate Will DC 15 or take 1 point of Charisma Drain.

    Cool-down on BW: [roll]1d4[roll]

    OOC, I'm entirely aware that I would have done much better to get into melee, but Martha is used to permanent brain damage being something that has a tendency to cause foes to exercise the better part of valor, plus the ability to hit more than half the foes with her line is fairly tempting to her.

    Trygg hardly even flinches as the arrow strikes home into his flesh. Oh, it hurt like hell and he was sure it did quite a bit of damage, but he completely and utterly ignored it. Instead, he simply turned to the one that shot him, and retaliated with a beam of arcana energy. Sure that it would hurt his enemy more than the arrow hurt him.

    Trygg's bolt of energy catches his foe square in the chest, staggering the man. Martha's breathe weapon causes the enemy warriors to wince, and Jopin cries out in pain.

    As the cloaked figure finishes up his chant, a great black bear appears directly in front of Ixen. The cloaked man steps forward, gesturing once more, "Estorises. Casmiendia!" As he finishes, he touches the bear, whose muscles bulge in response. The creature lashes out furiously at Ixen with both teeth and claws. Though Ixen dodges most of the creature's attacks, one swipe of the claws connect, digging through the gaps in Ixen's armor and drawing blood.

    Witnessing her allies response to the beige dragons breath, the blond woman pauses, looking. She, and her reflections, move south until she has a clear shot at the dragon. As one, the group raises their hands and a fiery ray arcs towards the little dragon. It catches her in her still open mouth. The pain is incredible.

    Realized I've been forgetting Rapid Shot. Oops.
    Priority order of attacks: Cloak 2 > Cloak 1 > Blonde. So if one of the first two attacks takes out Cloak 2, the remainder go to Cloak 1, and if the first two attacks take out both of them, the third goes to the blonde. Note that attacks against Cloak 1 are in range for Point Blank Shot, so I get +1 to attack and damage if they're going for them.

    First Attack: (1d20+14)[15], +2 if Magebane applies
    Damage: (1d4+1)[5] piercing + (1d6)[3] acid + (2d6)[10] piercing if Magebane applies

    Hyacinth's first arrow goes wide, but her next shots both find their mark. They draw grunts of pain from the summoner, but he stays on his feet. Ixen's first strike draws blood from the bear. It hollers in pain and narrowly avoids his second attack.

    On the other side of the battle field, the archer moves back towards his comrades, releasing another arrow at his warforged opponent. Once again, the arrow finds its mark, burying itself under a gap in his breastplate.

    Though he manages to deflect one of Martha's claws with his shield, the little dragon's onslaught proves too much for him, and he goes down, blood dripping from his wounds. Scant seconds later, Trygg's bolt takes the archer square in the chest; he falls to the ground, unconscious and dying.

    The bear, for its part, keeps fighting, clawing and biting at Ixen. The kobold's armor deflects it's claws without issue, though, and he evades it's powerful jaws without much effort.

    The blond woman grimaces as events unfold before her. She unleashes another fiery ray at Martha, then steps over the archer's body moving to put Jopin and the bear between her and her assailants. The scorching ray catches Martha in the side, inflicting a second less serious wound upon the dragon.

    The paladin sees another scorching ray strike the little dragon. We cannot continue to withstand such an assault. Rushing toward the last remaining enemy, the undead's glowing yellow eyes begin to take on a more bluish tinge. The illusions that surround the spellcaster do not fool one that can sense life itself as it charges silently with its blade aglow.

    Hyacinth's first bolt strikes an illusion, and it vanishes with Hyacinth's shadowy bolt. Her second bolt seems to be slowed down slightly by something the blond woman is wearing, but it still visibly cripples the woman (and all her duplicates) . As she struggles to keep her feet, Hyacinth's third bolt hits the bear. It roars in pain, and a moment later, Ixen's flurry of strikes send it back to where-ever it came from.

    Only the blond woman is left conscious, and is at 0 hp (disabled); Trygg, Martha, it's your turn.

    "Don't kill her." Trygg said, glad that the dragon swooped though one of the images, instead of managing to kill the women, it was obvious she was one the verge on unconsciousness. "Its best to restrain her, so we can question her."

    The woman looks at the warforged and the dragon, then, begins to laugh an absurd, desperate, laugh,"And if I surrender? Do I go free? Do you heal my wounds or do I crawl for days to the nearest civilization? Dying very much looks to be in the cards for me."

    "If you surrender, and you give us the information we seek. Then yes, we will heal your wounds, and set you free." Trygg said, completely seriously without missing a beat. Unbothered by how the others might think to such a suggestion, or any disagreements it might cause. "You have more word."

    The woman raises her eyebrows, "Come forward and heal me then. I won't fight you anymore."

    It looks like we're done fighting for the moment, so you should all feel free to chime in.

    Martha stands there, not quite sure what to do with herself, but not letting her guard down. She shuffles her various limbs in her discomfort.

    The paladin is off-put by Trygg's words. Its first instinct is to put down these evil souls before they can do any more harm. However, now that an oath of truce has been given, they cannot break that oath. Reluctantly, the undead steps forward and lays its gauntleted hand upon the woman's forehead. Glowing yellow light fills the space between. "Let that which was broken be unbroken," it intones. Taking a step back and planting the tip of its sword in the ground, the paladin continues, "You will now tell us the truth. Firstly, have you enchanted this man?" Its helm indicates Jopin.

    1 point of Lay on Hands. If she's a good little girl and cooperates, she will get more.
    I'd like a Sense Motive, please.
