Disappearing Act

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.

The 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.

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.

While his companions chased after their enemies, Miklos stepped over to the fallen Siswa and felt for their pulse. They were banged up, but breathing. He looked up to see how Feldard and Maruc were faring.

They were racing down the arched hallway, and passed a curtained doorway to their left. The Siswa, who were unencumbered by armor, were outpacing the dwarf and the priest. They reached another hallway junction. Feldard raised his crossbow. Straining for a clear shot, he stopped, steadied his aim at the fleeing elf”s legs and fired. The bolt sped towards its target, but just as it was about to strike, the elves disappeared into thin air.
Maruc was in the middle of the hallway junction, with Feldard right behind him. As they turned to examine their new surroundings, they saw some shadowy figures and flickering lights moving around far to the north.

Saeth charged down the hall, intent on her prey. How could they have been fooled by his treachery? As she ran, she drew a dagger and hurled it at the fleeing human. It struck the man, but he kept running, turning the corner in the room with the statue, heading for the temple entrance. She threw another dagger when the bandit came into view again. The dagger lodged itself deep in the thief’s neck, killing him just as he was about to reach the exit.

  1. Miklos (Mu 3)

    Too busy with his tieing up and body-moving Miklos paid little attention to the battle up the corridor. He grunted with effort as he pulled the final body into the alcove. He stood back a moment to look at his handiwork. It looked like a taverns allyway, he grinned wolfishly. He turned his attention to the priest and and the dwarvern warrior.

  2. Maruc (Clr 4)

    “What trickery is this!” the priest glanced around to his dwarvern companion. “Well thats ruined our chances of surprise. Well at least there is some comfort, they do not attack relentlessly unto death.” Maruc saw Feldards attention was down the northern corridor. “Are you listening to me?”

    Then he followed his gaze to the shadowy figures. “Friends or foe, which you think?” the priest grinned in the torchlight, he looked almost maniacal, “My feeling is with the latter!”

    For the first time the priest looked down at the blood seeping from between the plates of Feldards armour. “Pull back a moment. I shall call on Halav to staunch that wound.” as the dwarf started to brush him off Maruc cut across his words of complaint. “and none of your tiresome bluster! We are neither of us immortal!”

  3. Maruc (Clr 4)

    DM: Maruc will cast CLW on Feldard whether he wants it or not!

  4. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    (LOL you know Feldard too well)

    “Who said anything of being immortal? I’m merely made of sturdier stuff than elves and humans.” As the priest did his laying of hands upon him, Feldard kept silent but obviously felt the efforts would have been best saved for another time. He glanced back along the corridor to the north and then to the hallway in which the Siswa disappeared.
    “We should regroup. If that thief was correct and this is a labyrinth, we don’t want to be separated from the rest of the party – especially if there is magic involved.”
    The dwarf led the way back towards the mage.
