    R8T13: The Flycatcher drops the dagger he had drawn and moves up to the gap in front of the skeleton while drawing his Kunai. He wields it like a bludgeon as he brings it down on the wolf skeleton with a shout, doing 12 and pushing the wolf skeleton back 5'.

    R8T10: Kavina, there is now an opening to rush in if you want to go melee offensive. What do you do?

    R8T10: Kavina darts forward and using her purloined crossbow as an improvised weapon, she bashed the creature twice in quick succession, and destroying the second wolf skeleton (but also wrecking the crossbow)!

    R8T4: As the last of the skeletal wolves crumbles into a pile of inanimate bones, Dusha peers out over the prone form of Aldo. "Ugly business, this. Very ugly, not like my darling beautiful Radigan here." From the shadows of her hood, a pair of beady yellow eyes peer out. "We should make it less ugly, hm? Heal the ones with the nasty, bleeding wounds. The patient daggers can be patient for a little while longer."

    Tia delays and waits to hear more from the others. She's certainly seen better days, and not about to rush back in without knowing more.

    End Round 8, Begin Round 9 ...

    R9T16:
    Erasmus steps into the room where the wolf skeletons were, and picks up his starknife. Of course, he takes the source of light (his sunrod) with him.

    R9T14: Meijen speaks, "I am here to break the power of the Bastards. But I will not drop the sword on the fallen. Those were our orders, so I will leave that to you if you feel that must be, but I will do no such thing."

    R9T13.5: Aldo, you have no mindblade currently manifested, but no enemies active, either. What do you do?

    R9T13.5: Aldo brushes the dust off himself before summoning his blades again; better to be armed than not, especially since he can dismiss them if he needs to free his hands up later.

    R9T13: The Flycatcher begins gathering up his thrown daggers and returning them to his bandolier (he gets one this turn). "I agree. Turning in these villains would be a better image for the Children."

    R9T10: Kavina acquires an undamaged crossbow from a fallen Bastard, dropping her current one.

    R9T4: Dusha, what do you do?

    R10T13.5: Aldo enters the room, keeping his eyes open for further trouble.

    R10T13: The Flycatcher begins policing weapons from the downed Bastards, gathering them away from the downed opponents. "Does anyone have rope? We'll need to bind the still living miscreants."

    R10T10: “Why tie them up? Either leave them to their fate or remove them as a threat permanently. I will do it if you’re squeamish about it.” Kavina points out to Flycatcher matter-of-factly. She looks for a still living bastard to put out its misery. She hums a jaunty tune as she works. Of course, not knowing who is still living, she moves into the northern crypt and stabs the first Bastard (BoE7) she gets to (not a coup de grace, because she has to move to him as she takes out her fighting fan).

    Dusha and Erasmus are looking at the crypt in the next room....

    Round 11 ...

    R11T14:
    Meijen sees the brass that Kavina had in stabbing the fallen tiefling right next to him. He moves his blade deceptively and then destroys Kavina's fighting fan with his large curved blade.

    R11T13.5: As if to add a rationale to what just happened, Aldo chides, "Because we're not brutes or a rival gang. And more to the point, we need to maintain the reputation that we're not brutes or a rival gang as to help keep the Hellknights off our back."

    R11T13.4: "Against my better judgement, I'm with Aldo on this one. The public will favor us more if we aren't killing all of them. They'll believe we're more able to protect them if we don't kill indiscriminately." She groans at the thought of agreeing with Aldo. "I can't believe I had to agree with that guy," she speaks under her breath.

    Naked fury blazes across Kavina’s normally lovely features. “Are you serious!?” ... though whether that was to Meijen breaking her weapon or the rhetoric from the other two is unknown.

    R11T13: Flycatcher, what do you do?

    Kavina on deck, and that is all she managed to say since it is not yet her turn again; Meijen in the hole, Erasmus/ Dusha delaying in the southern crypt...

    Your warleader phalanx ability expired at the beginning of your turn, btw.

    You are wearing a pouch of coins. So are the two Bastards in range of you, and another of them has a case of bolts.

    R11T9: Erasmus leaves the smaller crypt to come into the larger one, bringing his sunrod. By the way, the darkness effect seems to go away now entirely, its duration having lapsed.

    R11T4: Dusha sighs softly to herself before puttering her way back into the other room, humming something tuneless softly under her breath as she does. When she reaches the room, she can't help but snort. "Little children, what kind of example are you making for the rats, hm? My little ones, they scurry and sniff all about and they always find uses for..." she glances down at the fallen Bastards, "...garbage. But the rats, they don't care what kind of garbage they get to eat, whether it's thieves or beggars or fools that stuck each other while their enemies watched."

    Meijen specifically held up the blanket so that a view is not afforded, and if Kavina tries to sidestep, the gray-skinned elf will simply wrap the blanket around Tia (probably covering the assisting, and confused, Erasmus). "I appreciate beauty more than you understand, Calistrian," he almost growls to Kavina, "but I understand that each person's naked beauty is their own to reveal, not another's to demand, and not another's to steal. Step. Back. Now."

    IF Kavina backs off, then Meijen continues to screen Tia with a blanket while Erasmus finishes assisting her with her armor. Once done, yes, Via is formed.

    Meanwhile, Kavina will have to reactivate her shadow clone ability (which won't be done until the door is just about opened, so as not to waste duration...); she will get 2 images. Flycatcher recovers and sheathes his dagger and kunai. Tia's shield of faith runs out, as does Erasmus'.

    The door is opened and Via steps carefully through. The mortared stone walls of this room give way to roughly chiseled rock walls to the west, where a narrow corridor turns to the north. As soon as Via steps into view of the western hallway, there is loud barking and growing coming from well down the hallway, so no surprise.

    Begin Round One ...

    R1T26: Erasmus bolts north to a corner and looks down the hallway. He peers down as best as he can, and it almost seems like a faint ghostly essence flies forth from him even as he is drained of all blood, his skin becoming translucent.

    R1T23: When Kavina sees that her fellow party member has his life sucked out out of him, she is quite descriptive. "****!"she exclaims in surprise. She looks for a place to hide, and in the back line as she is, she steps up and to the side of the door to the chamber beyond so she cannot be seen.

    R1T22: Tia, what do you do? What do you have Via do? You [T] can't see what's around the bend, but if you switch your point of perception, Via can.

    R1T22: Tia switches her point of view to Via and sees to fiery dogs down the way. She sees two deeply red-tinged hounds with black socks and snout, but burly like a mastiff. Via rushes to it, and once there she slashes at one of the doggoes.

    "Two hell dogs!" says Tia. "Basically, dogs from hell with heat and cold resistance."

    R1T17: Dusha hurries forwards, dagger drawn; not that she's expecting to actually stab anything with it, though, it more just makes her feel comfortable. Squeezing past Aldo and Meijin, she makes her way to where Erasmus was fallen but doesn't yet check his dry and brittle body for signs of life is still standing and alert desite a ghost seemingly having come forth from him. Preparing herself, wincing, she takes the quickest possible glance around the corner at the sounds of battle instead. With a vindictive grin and a flat disregard for Tia's... thing, she pulls a square of red cloth out of her voluminous robes and begins to twist it into strange knots, chanting monotonously.

    R1T10: The Flycatcher moves around the corner and tries to get closer to the hell dogs, drawing a dagger as he goes. He hurls the dagger at the nearest dog, but with Via in the way and the dog in a melee, the dagger bounces off the back wall of the passageway.

    R1T5-3: The northern dog doesn't do anything, seemingly incapacitated for some unknown reason (but still standing), but the southern dog snaps at Via.

    End Round One, Begin Round 2 ...

    R2T26: Erasmus takes out a set of bolas while passing Aldo and tosses it at the southern dog, hitting it with a crit for 11 NL, but not tripping it.

    R2T17: Swearing sulfurously to herself, Dusha dismisses the gathered magic with a wave of her hand. She wasn't about to summon a tangle of starving rats onto her allies, even if they had just rushed blindly into combat when they could see that she was casting and they would absolutely deserve it.

    Instead she moved up a few feet until she's standing behind Erasmus, no longer focused on a fight with some dogs which are sure to die soon but on whatever might be down the corridor behind them.

    R2T16: Aldo, you currently have a single light mindblade manifested. One of the hell dogs is down, the other badly battered and something wrong with it mentally to boot (or at least there was). What do you do?

    R2T16: Aldo took a false step forward and threw his blade at the dog, hoping to distract it from his true intention. Amazingly, despite all of the congestion in the hallway, it seems Aldo caught its attention. Unfortunately, all of the congestion is the very thing that keeps him from hitting the doggo.

    R2T11: Of course, while the hell dog was paying attention to the attention-getting morsel down the hallway, Meijen brings his curved blade down on it for 10, knocking it unconscious.

    Kavina travels only 25' before she is right at a four-stack of tiefling crossbowyers and another amber tiefling behind them!

    Surprise Round ... She knew to expect danger, but she is still surprised by them and they all four shoot at her before she gets a word in edgewise. The first two miss, but the second hits her in the gut for 8, but the second hits her in the left upper arm for 9. Kavina gives a cry of pain and alarm from that.

    R1T23: The Flycatcher runs around the corner as he draws his rapier. When he gets near enough, he hucks his kunai at a Bastard, hitting her in the left lower leg for 8 + 6 fire, dropping her.

    R1T22-20: A figure in the back incants a spell, and Kavina gets hit with an arcane bolt in the shoulder for 2 force. Green tiefling reloads her crossbow and shoots at Erasmus, critting him in the chest for 8.

    R1T17: Meijen moves right up to the mob of tiefling crossbowmen, next to the bleeding Kavina. He concentrates and casts a spell. The ground under the back rank of tieflings has a slight sheen. None of them fall, though they now do have to take care with their footing. "I greased all but the front line!" he calls out so his party isn't taken unawares. "Be careful.

    R1T12: Aldo walked towards the hallway, stopping just before the corner turns. No need to stop directly in the line of fire, after all.

    R1T11-9: "Brown" loads and shoots at Meijen, the elf's chain shirt stopping the shot cold. "Red" drops his crossbow and takes out his short sword. "Red meets with more success, dropping his crossbow, drawing his short sword, and grazing Meijen's right calf for 4.

    R1T8: Not only does Dusha keep Radigan hidden in her hood, she keeps herself hidden too. Running up behind Aldo, she peers over the diminutive halfling's shoulder at whomever they're fighting to try to see if there's a way she can use her few remaining spells to help, but she is too far back to see what is happening.

    End Round One, Begin Round 2 ...

    R2T24:
    Erasmus wants to close to combat, but as he holds the sunrod - and three people needing it for light are still around the western corner - he holds his position. He braces himself. "Okay, Gwendolyn. Last time you surprised me. I give you permission this time."

    And with that, just as happened when the fight with the devil-dogs occurred, a spectral woman races out of Erasmus' body to go up to red-tiefling's face and give a silent scream. And yet, red-tiefling screams in terror as the ghost jumps back into Erasmus' body, leaving the red-tiefling dazed.

    R2T23: Flycatcher, seems like Erasmus is a regular storehouse of a whole community of spooks! But he seems to have put red-tiefling out of action as that one is only using basic defensive moves but giving a thousand-yard stare. What do you do?

    R2T23: The Flycatcher tries to capitalize on the red tiefling's distraction with a driving stab of his rapier up into the inside of his upper left arm for 11 as it shatters bone and cuts into his brachial artery. The pain is severe enough that the tiefling stumbles to the side and in his dazed condition, where Meijen catches him with a crit through his abdomen for 14, disemboweling him outright.

    R2T22: The amber tiefling casts a spell, targeting The Flycatcher that he easily ignores, though it was some attempt to cloud his mind.

    Daze.

    R2T20-19: Green loads her crossbow and shoots at Meijen, missing. Someone casting a spell much farther south is heard.

    R2T17: Meijen calls out some type of elven prayer of the like. He then casts acid splash at a tiefling but misses.

    He called out in Elven, "Ancestors, grant me the righteous authority to see past magics that would twist my mind and deter my purpose!"

    R2T14: Tia, you are currently in total defense. You clearly see the greased area, and you know the limitations of the spell (as printed in theory, not as in understanding all usages outside of what is printed). What do you do?

    R2T14: Tia moves into the open space before the enemy and their grease- covered spaces and attempts to cleave him in two with her Scythe, the sound of glass breaking as she swings her weapon, but the tiefling female just barely dodges out of the way.

    R2T13: With a whimper of pain, Kavina dresses painfully after removing any embedded bolts. She is only just beginning to don her leather armor, something that promises to take a full minute unless someone helps her.

    R2T12: Aldo, what do you do?

    R2T12: Aldo steps out from around the corner, throwing a mind blade at the nearest foe, grazing"brown" tiefling's left elbow for 1.

    R2T11: No sooner does he take a cut on his elbow than "brown" drops his crossbow, draws his short sword and stabs Tia in the very lower part of her abdomen for 3.

    R2T8: Dusha, no enemy ever closed on the back line. In the meantime, Kavina is next to you, beginning the process of putting on leather armor. You know that is a lengthy thing to do without help. What do you do?
