The Siswa Attack

Miklos’s immediate reaction to the charging Siswa was to summon his sleep incantation.  He whispered the words of making and enchanting and as softly as a breeze he blew the dwoemer into the minds of the charging foe.

Maruc sprang to his feet and hoisted his shield up and said, “Who has the healing draughts? We might need them soon.” He stood next to the chanting mage preparing to defend him and himself.

Feldard cussed some nasty dwarven words and took a moment to load his crossbow. He hated the idea of killing the ensorcelled elves but he was in no state to be fending off the lot of them in melee. He fired off a first shot towards the crowd of Siswa. He had only time to loose one of the bolts before they would be upon him. The arrow lodged itself in one of the lead Siswa, and Feldard hastily switched weapons.

“We’re crossbowing them now?” Saeth’s muttered question was rhetorical, and quiet enough it needed no respose. She stepped past the Dwarf, slipping him a healing potion for a while. “Cradle a drink for a bit.”

“And this could have been so easy” Nicolai muttered under his breath. He then deftly tossed the enchanted sword to Saeth.

There was not much time before the elves were within melee range. Just as they were about to reach the group, Miklos let loose his spell of sleep. Five of the seven elves fell into immediate slumber. Despite losing most of their brethren to enchantment, the remaining two entranced Siswa continued to fight.

Saeth stepped forward, leaving the sheath on her blade, hoping the elves could be brought down without lasting damage.

  1. Maruc (Clr 4)

    Maruc knew his flail could not be de-natured in the same way as Saeth and Feldard’s bladed weapons. It relied on its swing and weight. Yet despite this he still held no quarms about felling the Siswa guard, holding the Rahib responsible for their deaths.

    Yet he did not relish the attack and held back as long as he dared, trusting to the warriors to fend off the assault. Only then did he consider that Feldard was at best only capable of defending himself. The priest was slow on the uptake and was a step behind the dwarf at the first clash of weapons.

  2. Miklos (Mu 3)

    As the elves crumpled to the floor the mages eyes widened, well it paid to ignore some of the rumours that the elves wove about themselves. It occured to him that he might rouse one of the unconscous elves and try a friendship enchantment on him. Surely he would aid them against the Rahib and his knowledge of the Rahibs doings and whereabouts would bring a swift and decisive conclusion to their mission.

    Eager though he was to test his theory he stepped back out of the way lest a stray blade catch him.

    Fortunately he had commited the charm spell to memory away…

  3. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    Feldard didn’t hesitate to drink down the small flask that was put into his hand even as he was stepping forward alongside Saeth. He met the Siswa’s charge, blocking with his axe then once more tried to use the flat of it to bring down his foe.
