    [Tracking Rats - Amalungak, Tarim & MERC]

    Amalungak follows. He realizes the danger involved, but this is what he has to do to serve his King. He simply trusts the King in Rags will watch over him down there.

    [Tracking Rats - Tarim & MERC]

    Stupid rats, not answering questions.

    Holly looks up at Tarim, suddenly being reminded what's going on and how bad the situation they're in is for everyone else. Was Tarim talking to her, or to the other MERC people? she wonders, but then quickly realizes it doesn't really matter: right now, Tarim is between her and the other MERC people, which means he can't use his fire in any direction. By grouping up with the other ones, she'll be out of his way, allowing him to use fire on this side of him, and she might be able help pull people out of the way if necessary.

    She, still squeezing the rat in her hand, nods and says, "Okay." She runs to group up with the other MERC members and, with the recently-reloaded shotgun, fires at the biggest mass of rats in front of her to make it easier to run to them and get out of the way.

    [Tracking Rats - Tarim & MERC]

    Two of the MERC members have at this point fallen into the well below where they're still struggling to fight off the rats within all that dried up gunk. They seem to have so far managed to keep the rats from biting too deeply into any critical part of their bodies but as they're now on the floor that might change soon.
    The others can still move around which makes it more difficult for the rats to attack.
    As Holly moves out of the way, Tarim conjures shockingly bright flames from his hand which leaves all the rats behind Holly dead in a sudden flash fire.

    Even those not directly in the path of the flames but still looked at it might find themselves partly or fully blinded by the bright light. This fate has befallen many of the rats which all appear confused and dazed as they suddenly can't see so well.
    Holly will have an easy time firing at them as they're not even moving out of the way. But just as sees the rats being blown to bits by her shotgun shells, something far louder can be heard.

    KRABROOOM

    The whole well-room shakes as what must be an explosion that must have happened just nearby. Holly won't be able to see any signs of it however but it couldn't have been too far away.

    [Amalungak and the rats]

    The white rat leads him in the same direction they were going but is taking an alternate route it seems.
    Though as he follows he might suddenly have his ears ringing as a explosion can be heard somewhere nearby.

    KRABROOOM

    The white rat stops for a moment and looks around but then it continues as if nothing happened.
    It might take him a while to recover, especially as his eyes, nose and lungs will be assulted by the dust the explosion have shaken into the air.
    However, if he continues following his guide he will soon find himself going down a sewer tunnel that looks just like any other. But the amount of dust here suggests that it likely was ground zero for the explosion. If Amalungak knew anything about construction, he might realize that it was cement that was just blown up.

    [Amalungak and the rats]

    Amalungak covers his face with his arm when the dust is kicked up, coughing violently. He then produces a scarf from his satchel and wraps it around his face, to at least help him proceed a little more quickly. This does little to help his eyes, but he makes do. He doesn't know anything about cement, or explosives for that matter - they come across as vile goblin technology to him. He realizes that he's nearing the epicentre of the explosion, however. Just what happened here? And is the being he came here to meet unharmed?

    That's got to be related to what they're looking for.

    [Tracking Rats - Tarim & MERC]

    Holly can feel the heat across her back. Even the light reflecting off the walls tell her how bright it was.
    And...
    an explosion. This is probably why the rats were gathering. But, unless they fend off the current problem, they won't be able to look into it.

    Unable to find time to figure out what to do with the rat she's holding, she tosses it.
    She then tries to figure out what the situation they're in is. Those two members in the well need to come out - losing them would make this a lot harder. She can't immediately get them out without breaking her cover, and she doesn't want to do that just yet unless there's no other option, so...

    The half-elf looks down the well. If she goes down there, she could draw off some of the rats there and give them time to get up and do something. So, she slides and hops down the well to those two members. "Hey, get up," she orders, firing another shotgun blast - aiming to not hit the two mercenaries, but just a bunch of rats again.

    [Tracking Rats - Ruby and Fade]

    They've recently fought off two strange creatures that look like some mix between an occtupus and a spider. One of them have retreated back into the cave where they ambushed them while the other have disappeared somewhere in the cave hall they're currently in.

    A river runs through the middle of the stone hall and on either side of it are a series of small caves. The creatures attempted to lure them into one of them using a human voice, causing Ruby to walk into a web.

    "Bombs?" karl replies. "I am also behind something else, which might be connected to your problem. maybe we should just join together. Maybe my skills are of help. Those are my pals" he says pointing at the skeletons behind him

    Fade nods and backs off a little, searching for a place Ruby can hide, he is safe using his shadow but he won't be able to keep Ruby there for long, also they might need to fight and it would be good if they can surround the enemy.

    Tracking Rats- Spewer & Karl, Without Irena

    "Are you a bomb disposal expert? Or an explosives engineer? Do you know how to stop the bombs from exploding? Because that's what they're going to do unless someone stops it, and I can't stop it." And the person he's hanging around with has disappeared, the person who has arrived has some skeletons and Spewer's feeling a bit nervous. He's pretty sure his power won't work against the skeletons, unless he uses another tablet to change his effect to physical damage rather than an emotional effect.

    [Tracking Rats - Tarim & MERC]

    More rats are shot, but presumably not the ones on top of the MERC members as that would make it very hard not to hit them. The two are attempting to pull off the rats in sheer panic. But each rat takes a tiny chunk of flesh with them as they're pulled off.
    Screams of pain can be heard echoing through the well, but it's not just coming from the MERC members. Up above Tarim is torching even more rats. Looks like he will get the other MERC members free soon.

    Tracking Rats- Spewer & Karl, Without Irena

    Whatever Not-Irena is doing, she is taking her sweet time doing it. Or perhaps she's right behind Andy right now. Waiting for the right opportunity to stab him in the back.
    Or she's elsewhere, simply watching the exchange.

    [Tracking Rats - Ruby and Fade]

    The figure soon becomes clearer and it's indeed big. Nearly 5 meters tall with a pair of horns that make it just cross that length. It's covered in black fur though by contrast the hair on it's legs are snow white. It's facial features can best be described as goat- or demonlike if one is so inclined. Hooves are often associated to such beings after all.
    Though it's chest is far more human like as it seems to be well-equipped in the lady department without even fur or clothes covering them. But the creature suddenly stops and starts to look around as if had just seen something.
    It might have just detected their presence.

    Their leader however holds firm and fires a shot at Archera, or rather the position she was a moment ago. He curses and starts to aim for her again. However, as he spots Flicker he decides to shot at her instead as she wasn't moving. Firing off a single bullet aimed in her direction.
    [Descending into Darkness - Archera & Flicker]

    There's little Archera can do to prevent the shot from going off, but the shot draws her attention to the leader immediately. With the person immediately in front of her momentarily disabled, she rushes the leader, sending a swift, low kick to his knee. She can't worry about what the gunshot accomplished. She has to stop him from using it again.

    Descending into Darkness- Flicker & Archera

    As soon as she spots Archera, Flicker zips back forwards with her shotgun, headed to the closest mutant that isn't running away. She'll raise her shotgun and fire a blast of birdshot into their chest. The bullet fired at her misses, as she's no longer standing where she was when it was fired.

    The birdshot isn't likely to kill, but it will probably hurt... And if the mutants don't want to fight, it'll give them an excuse to stay down and stop fighting.
