The Tide Is Turned?

“Was Saeth running away? That did not seem like her at all.” Nicolai put all thoughts out of his head and dropped his bow to draw his sword.

Miklos’s eyes bulged as the leading orc brushed aside the blows that rained down on him and passed the the Dwarf and Cleric as if they were no matter. Miklos knew he had to wait to allow more of the orcs into the room before his casting his spell so he grasped his staff and prepared to strike the orc attacking Nicolai. Well, it was worth a try and the orc didn’t seem to have noticed him.

Feldard bellowed a dwarven battle cry and charged down into the remaining orcs on the steps. One may have gotten past him and the cleric but the rest would not be so lucky. He swung his axe down upon the unfortunate orc in his path. The orc managed to parry the blade, and Feldard found himself facing two opponents at once.

Meanwhile, Maruc yelped as the orcblade bit into him passed his guard and armour. Well by Halav he’ll pay for turning his back on him! Maruc brought his flail round in a murderous arc at the orcs retreating back and following the momentum of the blow he pirouetted full circle to face the doorway and the next orc. The priest’s flail struck at full strength, eliminating the first of the orcish reinforcements.

Nicolai used his blazing speed to counter the enraged orc that charged at him, easily dodging the humanoid’s clumsy swordswing. Miklos’ awkward pokes with his staff provided enough of a distraction that the rogue was able to pierce the orc’s guard. He stabbed deep and ripped the orc’s innards with his short sword. He yanked the sword back out and the orc fell dead.

Only two of the orcs remained, and they were now outnumbered two-to-one. There was no sound of any more approaching warriors from either of the stairwells.

    Nicolai: 4995/9600
    Feldard: 5360/8800

  2. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    Feldard didn’t hesitate in continuing his brutal assault on the two remaining orcs that stood before him. He only hoped that the others were faring as well or better with the two that had gotten past him.

  3. Nicolai (T3)

    Nicolai attacks the orc closest to him, and once that is dead, follows Saeth.

  4. Maruc (Clr 3)

    Maruc continued to fight shoulder to shoulder with Feldard gleaning what he could from the Dwarfs’ superior combat technique.

  5. Miklos (Mu 3)

    Reassessing the situation Miklos quickly realised that Maruc and Feldard had successfully blocked the stairwell. He hoped no more would emerge from the deapths.

    “How many are you facing?”he urgently inquired of his two comrades.

  6. Maruc (Clr 3)

    “Just two Miklos, at the moment.” Maruc managed to reply whilest fending off a swift orcthrust.

  7. Miklos (Mu 3)

    This didn’t seem to be too much of a problem. What was more worrying was Saeth & Nicolai. They shouldn’y face the Wizard on their own without him. Denetiata would not be easily defeated. Miklos raced after the rogue.
