Zombies were like goblins or dwarves–they learned very slowly, regrouping from defeat after defeat, attached to the habit of attacking again. Saeth threw herself through the doorway after the fleeing creatures, determined to finish the job this time rather than wait for that second attack.
Nicolai sprinted after the elf and thought “Damnable elf. She’ll get us all killed running off like that, who knows what kind of ambush or trap could have been lain here. Still if we’re all alive and able, the better chance we have of all getting out of here.”
“Maruc, watch over the mage. I am off to keep the Elf in one piece.” Then Feldard too took off towards the doorway, following the Elf and Nicolai.
As the zombies continued their march away from the cleric, the fighting spilled out into the hall beyond the doorway. Feldard, Saeth and Nicolai followed them.
