    Presumably at the "armoured hulk". Raging while at it.

    Charge (lucerne hammer): (1d20+11)[26] for (1d12+11)[22] bludgeoning cold iron (incl. +2/+2 rage, +2/+0 charge, +1/+0 bless, -1/+3 power attack)
    AoO (conditional): (1d20+9)[27] for (1d12+11)[23] bludgeoning cold iron (incl. +2/+2 rage, +1/+0 bless, -1/+3 power attack)

    Not sure if other buffs like seance boon are still active. If something is, it applies as well.
    Rage 3/10. AC 11 for this round.

    At the sound of frightened shouting, Tali quickly moves up with the others! It's a horrific scene before them! She can't think of a spell that will make any difference in this situation - flinging fire bolts around strikes her as a very bad idea! Instead she clutches her waterskin into her hands and charges in alongside the others. If she can't be useful in the fight she can at least present another target and attempt to extinguish any fires that get started!

    Siera hurls the door open and the armoured hulk looks up. Both Gashur and Leonius recognising the man as Chaleb Sazomal, a crusader turned traitor serving the powerful the heretic Stauntan Vhaine (a once-paladin now fallen and ruler of the lost city of Drezen across the border into fallen Sartoris. Also noticed now is a pair of tieflings with curved horns and scaled skin and long poleaxes that stride out from behind the pile of books and bound librarians.

    Tali, Leonius and Gashur race into the collapsed library, Gashur running up to Chaleb and swinging a mighty blow with the hammer. Chaleb curses and whirls around, heavy mace in hand roaring at the tieflings, "What you waiting for them, slaughter these fools!" He raises the shield dropping into a defensive stance, narrowing his eyes at the glowing bubble of holy energy flowing from Leonius.

    Leonious joins Gashur wading into the melee and striking at one of the cultists beside him, gashing the man in the shoulder. The cultist snarls something in abysaal and raises his poleaxe lunging forward to slash back at the aasaimir priest even as the second one races around the side of the books to gang up on Gashur and drives his polearm into Gashur's back.

    Gashur stood the polearm strike just fine, though he was somewhat annoyed by its reach, which had prevented him from striking the attacker. When that mace blow to the head has landed, the half-orc fell to the floor.

    Gashur is out. Not so sure about flanking (it would take a lot of movement to get around Gashur's reach without provoking), but both hit anyway. At least he dealt out as much as he got. Good luck to you, people.

    I'm assuming the paladin is within 45 feet of Seira; if he's not, I'll summon the badger farther away and it will charge.
    Badger full attack:

    Add 2 to each attack roll if the badger can flank.

    Leonius ducks under his shield not expecting the enemy to sweep him almost off his feet. Possibly just Iomedae's blessings keep him standing as the world turns around the blonde man. He repeats the lessons taught at him at a younger age mentally. He was the healer, he was to stay alive at any cost necessary. Taking on a more defensive posture, he slashes at his enemy again.

    Its carnage as the fighting breaks out, the prisoners screaming and throwing themselves to the ground by Tali's feet. "Please cut us free, please save us..." they beg. Even as that happen Gashur is flanked by the ex-paladin and a cultist and both strike home felling the hapless half orc. Mong charges in, dealing a savage blow to Chaleb, blow gushing from between the rents in his armour. The cultist leaps forward slashing and stabbing at Mong as Leonius and the other one duel in a flurry of parries and blocks.

    In the midst of everything a glowing golden badger appears clawing at Chaleb as well

    The cultist fighting Leonius stabs out at him before the other cultist attacks Mong, Chaleb steps back away from Mong and swing at the small badger as he tries to gte clear, blood leaking from his muscular frame and a curse on his lips

    Tali stands momentarily torn between helping the prisoners, helping her friends, or remaining on fire-guard. As Gashur and Leonius fall, she stretches out an anguished arm towards the cultist champion. "No!" she cries, and her hate for the man becomes two flaming orbs of fire, striking the man unerringly in the chest!

    Seira grits her teeth as the aasimar falls. Losing a healer, especially in the situation that Kenabres is in, would be terrible. She levels her spear and charges at the cultists, determined to prevent them from finishing off her fallen comrades.

    Gashur awakes. Gashur attacks. He does the best he can do before he's knocked back out.

    Spoiler
    Show
    If rage powers kick in, Gashur can make three natural attacks. If there is a target in reach, he will do just that, from the ground:
    Claw: (1d20+4)[21] for (1d4+4)[8] (incl. fatigue, rage, +1/+0 bless, -4/-0 ground fighting)
    Claw: (1d20+4)[21] for (1d4+4)[7] (incl. fatigue, rage, +1/+0 bless, -4/-0 ground fighting)
    Bite: (1d20+4)[5] for (1d4+4)[5] (incl. fatigue, rage, +1/+0 bless, -4/-0 ground fighting)

    If Gashur cannot do the above, he'll try to attack with the hammer. Possibly standing up first, if and when it is safe to do so:
    Lucerne hammer: (1d20+4)[17] for (1d12+6)[12] (incl. fatigue, rage, +1/+0 bless, -4/-0 ground fighting)

    And just like that with the blessings of the inheritor the battle seems to shift! Even as Gashur opens his eyes as Mong's song reaches his ears he see's Chaleb and cultist standing by him, and nearby he can see another cultists standing over Leonius's fallen form. Before he can act though he spies the savage glowing golden badger leap upon Chaleb, its claws digging deep ito the fallen knight's groin and femoral artery and eve as as the fallen man swings for it there is a blast of fire and a pair of magical balls of fire slam into him sneding him tumbling to the ground where the badger claws out his throat!

    A patter of feet and Sierra charges the cultists by Gashur, although the well trained cultist of Deskari manages to defelct her spear he turns hi back on Gashur as with the battle song motivating him he rises and with great savagery tears out the man's spine! before rising!

    The last cultist, seeing Mong, Gashur and Sierra arrayed against him steps away from the cleric's fallen body and flees towards the side door vanishing from view

    Well, might as well end the song since Gashur will drink a potion (saves me from getting nauseated). Since we out of combat, I can assume other round takes place.

    Mong moves toward Leonius, draws a potion. Next turn, full rd action pours it down the dude's throat.

    As the sounds of the cultists feet fade into the general background of the destroyed city the librarians fall over themselves in joy. Fenna, their leader sees Arivishnal arriving and runs over. "Arivishnal, it is good to see you alive. They killed the others, only Quednys (Orlun) has survived, he was near the cathedral." The elf mage weeps tears from his ruined and burned eyes. "Fenna my dearest. I am glad you are alive. Did they take anything of value. I'm sorry for our losses, but relieved that master Orlun survived.". Fenna nods, and holds his hands tightly. "Yes, it was a beast, an abomination of worms made into man. It detsroyed the doorways with magic and stole many of the treasures, whatever was left was then detsroyed by this man."

    As she walks around she picks up a shattered book, "Even the lesser spell books are damaged beyond repair." she says sadly, before offering it Arivinsnal and Tali. "If you are injured we can rest here, but I have heard rumours that there are survivors around the Defender's Heart" . Even as she says that Horgus snorts from the back of the room as he examines the dead cultists. "You promised to get me home, didn't you. Not waste more time in this funeral pyre."

    On the pile of books around Chaleb and the Cultists body Leonius slowly comes to as Mong's pet licks his face, Gashur drinking a potion as the song leaves him exhasuted. His armour is stout but well made banded mail (MW Banded mail) but the mace glows to Leonius, Seira and Tali with a dull enchantment and there are a pair of potions on his belt that you all recognise as looted from the Iomedean faith (2 x CLW potions).

    Leonius wakes from his deserved break into a world in chaos again. He shoots up, looking around panicked, then decides to funnel his deity's magic into those who survived.

    He then calmly goes over to Lord Gwerm, checks his attitude for a second and punches him in his face.

    "I'll take both of those, thank you very much." Says Gashur when he is notified about the potions. "Let's not have this happen again..." he says as he immediately drinks one of them "...ah, and ignore the man, he's clearly not accustomed to being knocked out." This last remark was apparently to Horgus. "We'll bring you home, no problem, we're just a bit on the nerve, as surely you are too."

    Tali opens the spellbound eagerly, but I'd soon confused.

    "I'm afraid I can't read this," she laments, closing the book and passing it over to Arivishnal just as Leonius decides to hit Horgus Gwerm.

    "Iomedae's sake! she curses, hurrying over to help the man up.

    "Get a grip, Telum," she tells Leonius coldly.

    "Please don't judge us all by this old boor's actions," she pleads. "We did say we'd go to your estate next." She nods an appreciation to Gashur for his support.

    "You said something about a beast?" Mong's ears pick up at the note of this worm beast.

    Just then he notices Leonius punch Horgus, "Dude, I know his comment wasn't the nicest but chill, Horgus is as scared as the rest of us and just wants safety. Sorry, Horgus, you may have missed we almost lost two of us. I'm out of extra power. I am not at full power anymore. After we excort you home, do you think you could let us rest at your place?"

    Mong turns to face the others, " I know, we have a lot we want to do, but you saw how dangerous this just got. Gashur and Leonius almost died. I figure we have one more battle at best we can handle. If his place is intact, that might be safest place to nap. We haven't slept in a long time. I, for one, am tired. Could use a meal too, but don't expect that there so maybe we chew on our rations.

    Some minor chaos breaks out as Tali is speaking with Arivinshnal and Fenna, the two green skins (Gashur and Mong) stripping the dead and recovering with some potions. When Leonius punches Horgus in the face there is a palpable crack before the fat man falls back into the oil soaked books flapping about and cradling his bleeding noise. He stares balefully at Leonius "Don't you know my status in this city you little fool. I have power here, not you. You are just a brute..." he snarls as he slips trying to get to his feet.

    As Tali intervenes he nods sullenly, accepting he helping hand as he rises to his feet. "Thanks miss Tali, at least on of you, well three.." he adds as he looks at Mong and Gashur. "Are true to your word." Cradling his nose he staggers to where some food and drinks are piled in the corner, ignoring the librarians. Fenna looks at you all, before speaking. "Shall we remain here Miss? We can look after Aneiva and Master Arivishnal and the route from Gwern estate to the Defender's HEart runs past this square. We can remain hidden here and wiat till you return?"

    --

    (assuming you agree) A short time later you can re-assamble at the gates of the Blackwing LIbraty, the square looking empty and devoid of life but the afternoon sun starting to wane highlighting the smoke filled air. Heading north east towards the park the city streets in the outer ward seem quieter and the detsruction more haphazard and less. Clearly more fighting happened near the heart of city. And its with some surprise when you reach the park you can look across the acre of neat grass, now befouled with burnt patches and a pyre of bodies that has burned down to embers and charred skeletons that Gwern give sa chuckle of deligght and you see the stout white marble facade of his manor looks intact.

    Scouting across the park Gashur and Mong reach the gates of his manor which hang ajar, one wrenched from its hinges and you realise that the house is empty, but the lack of damage and trail of what looks t be silks and the occasional silver candlestick in the grass shows what happened. Horgus himself sneering "Filthy cowards. My servants and guards must have fled and looted before they went... well they will rue the day they crossed Lord Horgus Gwern!" The House seems quite and he turns to you all, a nod of near respect to Tali, Mong and Gashur and contempt for Leonius."My thanks, although you put me in grave danger I have recahed my manor. I will hide in my vaults, they have supplies and wait for the relief. But you may leave now, too many here would deplete my supplies and attract undue attention.."

    "I don't see why you can't stay here if you prefer," Tali replies to Fenna, looking to the others for confirmation. "We'll collect you on our way back to The Defender's Heart."

    Tali is glad the journey to Gwerm's estate doesn't take long. She can still feel the tension prickling, and as much as she would never admit it she'll be glad to be parted. When it becomes clear the solitary lord intends to remain barricaded in his vaults, she clenches and unclenches her jaw subconsciously before simply stating "Fair enough. Stay safe Lord Gwerm."

    She turns back to the others. "I think we should hurry back to the Blackwing Library, and from there to the Defender's Heart. We should make as much progress as we can before we lose the light."

    Seira had said nothing as Leonius had punched Horgus. While the punch had been, in her opinion, unnecessary, the man's continuous poor behavior meant that it wasn't totally uncalled for. As Tali approached Horgus and began to placate him, Seira felt it would be best to simply let her handle it.

    As Horgus disappeared into the depths of his mansion, Seira breathed a quiet sigh of relief. She hoped she wouldn't have to speak with him again, but she had a strange feeling that she would. She was distracted from her pondering by Tali's suggestion.

    "I agree" Seira says. "We need to make it to Defender's Heart before the sun goes down, or we likely won't last the night. Does anyone have a different suggestion?"

    "It strangely seems that the attacking force is not in a business of full takeover. In this case we might indeed survive a night in the Defender's Heart. We'll see how it is then, we're sure to hear a lot of stories. Good luck with your plan, Lord Gwerm, hope to have us both alive to meet at some later date." Gashur it ready to lead the way. He'd rather lead the way somewhere safer, but for a night, Defender's Heart might be just good enough.

    Horgus leaves the party heading into his manse (and you assume his hidden and no doubt well stocked vault) leaving you in the depths of the outer city. The outer city is relatively quite however, the demonic horde small in number but great in power just left swathes of devastation resulting the "abysaal garrison" being much smaller and presumably concentrated somewhere else nearer the heart of the city. Sneaking back through the smoke shrouded streets you are easily able to reach the ruined library and re-unite with Fenna, Arishvinal and Aneiva and the other librarians.

    Arishnival offering a subtle, "I hope the Lord was happy upon reaching his residence, know that Fenna and myself are more grateful than he showed for your aid." Fenna and the librarians nod in agreement, "We thank the inheritor for your timely rescue. Whilst you were gone we considered how they destroyed the Wardstones. We realised the Templars must have uncovered some weakness and the Magister and Aneiva here mentioned you had uncovered some clues as to their locations.". Aneiva rises and nods, "Yes, in that mongrelfolk den where you killed Hossila. They had some letters did they not as to the disposition of the Templars, if that is where their leaders are hding they may have the clues to understand" "But not," Fenn intervenes, "Before we reach the Defenders Heart and see if there are others who have survived."

    Its a tense 2 hours as the sun falls as you wind through the ruins, especially with a blind elf and a one-legged ranger. but eventually you reach near the Defender's Hearts, Aneiva waves over Tali and Leonius. "Tali, Leonius,... I know you are eager to reach the Heart and it lies close" (she is right, its in the NE corner of the outer city and ~5 blocks from your current locations) "But my house is just there..." she adds pointing down a neat side street of small well tended residences, many now soot scarred and gutted by fire, "Could we check quickly. Or if my wife Irabeth survived she may be there or she may have left a note?"



    As a key for things you know...
    1 = Where you emerged from the undercity
    4 = Blackwing library
    2 = Gwern Manor
    3 = Aneiva and Irabeth's House (and you are close to that currently)
    7 = Defender's Heart Inn
