Running Around the Temple

Maruc pressed his advantage and launched himself at the next guard. His bravado sagged as the rest of the guards pressed into the fray. He rather hoped that seeing their comrades fall they might fight off the charm that had trapped them.

The dwarf bellowed a war cry as he turned to face the next Siswa, probably not the wisest thing to do given they were trying to sneak up on the Rahib. But the battle cry gave him the focus he needed to ignore the pain of his wound and continue on in his strategy of knocking his opponents unconcious. He swung up and over, and brought the flat of axe down on the next ensorcelled elf in his path, leaving Maruc and Feldard with two opponents remaining.

Miklos let the thief go. He had no idea where he was going and flying blindly down corridors was going to make his life very short. Saeth however, sprung into action, giving chase. She swung her scimitar at him as she came into range of the bandit, lightly wounding him. The man was fast though, and picked up his pace even more in light of the elven swordswoman’s pursuit.

As Saeth gave chase down the corridor, the two remaining Siswa guards decided their best course of action was to turn and run back the way they came.

  1. Maruc (Clr 4)

    Priest leapt forward and struck at the retreating Siswa guard in front of him. He steeled himself against the thoughts that these guards were simply unwilling slaves. Their fates rested in the hands of the Rahib. It was pointless to allow them to raise the alarm.

  2. Miklos (Mu 3)

    Miklos lowered his staff. This was not good, the Siswa would be alerted to intruders because of a bunch of inept thieves that had beaten them into the temple. Well it was too late now.

    As the fight pressed further down the corridor he stepped over to the fallen Siswa and felt for their pulse. Those who where not dead he started to gag and bind the rest he planned to conceal in one of the statue recesses.

    He despoiled the remaining thieves of their plunder and also dragged these into an adjacent recess.

  3. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    Feldard, like Maruc, was not about to let the last two Siswa just escape to warn the others. He charged after the two fleeing elves pulling at his crossbow as he ran. It was still tensioned from earlier and he struggled with loading it while in chase.

    (assuming) Maruc being faster caught up with his foe in short order but the dwarf with his short legs had a bit more of a haul to go. As he passed the cleric and elf in combat, he raised his crossbow. When he was sure of a clear shot he stopped, steadied his aim at the fleeing elfs leg and fired.

  4. Saeth Tegau

    Saeth charged down the hall, intent on her prey. As she ran, she drew a dagger and hurled it at the fleeing human. How could they have been fooled by his treachery?
