Dropping The Last Two

As the elves crumpled to the floor the mage’s 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 Rahib’s 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.

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.

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 immediately felt his body recover once more from the grievous wounds he had sustained. 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. Feldard’s armor fared far better against the Siswa blade than that of the massive bone golem they had faced in the temple room. With Maruc’s aid, he was able to knock out the Siswa without sustaining any further wounds.

Meanwhile, Saeth and Nicolai faced the other Siswa, and likewise were able to take down their foe with non-lethal means.

  1. Miklos (Mu 3)

    The mage cut lengths of Siswa robe to gag and bind the unconsious guardsmen. He hunted around for the leader and hoped it wasn’t the one with the crossbow bolt in his chest. He searched each body for any mark or badge of authority occasionally asking Saeth to give her opinion.

    Ideally Miklos would like to ‘charm’ the leader of the group but if we cannot work out which one is the leader he will choose a guard at random.

    “Once we have hidden the guard somewhere I would like to see if I can overcome the Charm placed upon one of the guardsmen. If this is possible it would give us a great advantage against the Rahib. Ideally we should try this on the leader as they would be privvy to the most information. Equally he would need to remain tied up for our own protection if my experiment fails.”

    If everyone assents to this course of action Miklos will rouse the chosen guardsmen and cast Charm Person on him.

  2. Maruc (Clr 4)

    The Priest nodded in agreement, “I like your thinking Miklos.” But so as not to let the young mage get too big headed he added, “A shame you didn’t think of this when we first encountered the Siswa outside the temple…” He grinned.

  3. Maruc (Clr 4)

    “To be honest.” Maruc continued, “We must rest soon. We will be taking a serious risk if we try to hold out in our injured state, we cannot afford to be slain or captured, but equally we cannot allow the Rahib to leave unchallenged or have time to regroup. What say you all? Do we press on and trust our luck will hold or rest and attack from a possition of strength but risk having to assault a marshalled force?”

  4. Saeth Tegau

    “To move on now gives us some advantage of surprise, however slight. The Rahib is in his element, and will continue to dog us were we to linger anywhere.” Saeth didn’t look at the others; she studied the fallen Elves. “I’d as soon press onward as rest in the midst of my enemies. And Miklos? That one looks like as much of the leader as they had.”

    Saeth is making as educated a guess as she can about the status of the Elves, being better placed to guess right. OOC, I’m guessing there is no leader; all are mind-controlled equally. If there is… I hope her judgement is good!

  5. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    Feldard, while he understood the priests need for rest nodded in agreement with the Elf. “She’s right, resting at this point will be nigh impossible. These are but the first of many that will be after us. We need to find and finish off the Rahib… quickly.”
