A Quick Massacre

Seeing the approach of the men and already struggling against the pressure of the spell Miklos could wait no longer. They were about to be discovered so he stepped sideways centrally on the staircase ensuring he did not block the passage of Seath or Feldard he cast the spell with an explosive release of exertion.

As they reached the archway, half of the robed men fell into instanteous sleep, leaving five startled society brethren.

Seizing the moment Maruc hissed urgently, “We must stop them raising the alarm!” Then stiding forward he called as he swung his flail in large lazy arcs. “Halav’s justice upon thee!” He met the first of the surprised ‘veiled that were still standing after Miklos’s spell.

Well, perhaps Halav would prevent his battlecry from raising that much-feared alarm, thought Saeth, but she imagined that silence would’ve done a better job of it.

Be that as it may, the battle was joined. In the close confines of the staircase, it would be difficult to fit a third armsman abreast of the dwarf and the priest, so Saeth held her position as a rearguard, throwing her daggers past the dimunitive Feldard and into his assailant. The man fell dead by her dagger before he could even draw his weapon.

Feldard was glad the wait for battle was over! He charged in, not bellowing as he would have liked for Maruc was correct – he didn’t wish to raise the alarm and bring back the other half of the Veiled members. He hacked at those standing with his battle axe not concerned with leaving any alive to question.. that’s what the sleeping ones were for!

Nicolai took advantage of the darkness and confusion by creeping round the back of the remaining men. He attack from the rear stabbing one of the surprised men deep into his back, killing him.

Everything happened so quickly. Already their number was down to two, and they were only then just drawing their daggers. The dwarf was on top of one of them. He desperately plunged his dagger through a gap in the dwarf’s armor even as the dwarven battle axe arced through the air toward his head. Unfortunately for him, the dwarf’s battle wound did not affect the axe’s trajectory and it was end of the veiled criminal.

Seizing the opportunity, the swordswoman darted through a gap between her two allies, taking up station in the rear of the Veils.

The lone hood fled back toward the stairs shouting to his companions for help. “We are under attack! They have penetrated the…”

Those words would be his last as Saeth’s sword silenced him forever. Everyone paused in silence listening. One of the hooded men emerged from the exit. He called to the others to join him!

  2. Feldard (Dwf 1)

    So much for not alerting the others… He took a moment to check the wound he received. It was minor enough – nothing that would keep him from battle that’s for sure! He hefted his battle axe and strode forward to meet the oncoming Veiled. If he could get to the entrance before they all arrived he could limit the number that came through. Battling two in close quarters was better than 5 in an open space!

  3. Maruc

    Taking note of the sturdy dwarf’s intentions Maruc quickly marched by his side raising his shield and preparing to block the entrance so that they could not all come out at once.

  4. Miklos (Mu 1)

    Miklos lightly bounded down the stairs. he was usless in the coming confrontation unless they broke though so he took a few moments to ensure that the sleeping figures would remain unconscious for a long while with judicious introduction of the pommel of his knife and the back of their heads…

    He also kept an eye on the rear entrance just in case battle was joined from there.

  5. Saeth Tegau

    Blocked away from the fight once again by the armoured phalanx of dwarf and clerk, the swordswoman paused to catch her breath, ready to leap upon any who broke through their line.

    If the two fail to stop them at the entrance, but before they get to the stairway:

    Seeing that the two had the situation well in hand, Saeth relaxed somewhat. Then she noticed the platform running around the back rim of the room. She leapt into action once more, climing the third staircase two steps at a time, and charging around to engage the returning criminals from behind.
