Feldard’s axe came up to block his attackers blow. The man was strong!
With barely a moment to think his actions through, he followed through with an attack of his own.. using the flat of his axe. This man easily blocked the dwarf’s maneuver. It was quickly becoming clear this man was no stranger to combat.
The man apparently killed the Veiled leader, which meant he wasn’t likely of a Veil himself, which should put him on their side…Feldard thought. If only he would stop a moment to listen. “We’re not with the Veiled. So cease a moment!”
At the dwarf’s remarks, the man does not stop for even a moment. He sought to strike the dwarf without mercy.
Hoping that the companions had the matter very much in hand–Feldard and Nicholai with the elder man, and Maruc with the man’s victim–Saeth stayed out of their way. She scanned the room for other exits, and measured how far each of the two men were from it. Neither would leave the room on her watch!
Meanwhile, Nicolai had followed behind Feldard, and trying to circle round behind the swordsman.

Miklos had no time to deal with the ramblings of the fishmonger, nor to explain to the guardsmen the intricacies of the events that had transpired. He immediately left to return to his friends. If the guardsman gave chase,then he would soon see the truth of Miklos’s point of view when he sees the huge pile of corpses.

The cleric entered the room last and took in the situation. Feldard and Nicolai were all over the armoured man and so Maruc hoped he would soon be overpowered or convinced that we were not the enemy.
Leaving the subduing of the armoured man. Maruc went over to the younger man, who appeared to be in his late twenties. On closer inspection, he was wearing leather armor. He was bent over picking something up. It was a sword! “Zweis! You shall pay for what you have done to father!”
Nicolai attacked from behind, catching the brawny main in chain off guard. He tried to knock him out with the hilt of his sword. Feldard used this opportunity to launch an attack of his own, again with the flat of his axe.
Smiling, the man brushed off both attacks with apparent ease, and brought his sword down mightily upon the dwarf, severely wounding him.
