Another Battle in The Temple

From their rear vantage point, Nicolai and Saeth clearly saw that the panthers did not materialize from thin air into the room, but rather emerged from a hidden trap door behind the altar. Hearing the Ylari words of the Rahib, Nicolai aimed at the hatch, hoping the mysterious man would emerge. Saeth circled behind the altar, pulling her blade clear of its sheath, and prepared to strike anything that came within reach. They could both see that the hatch was cracked open slightly.

Feldard couldn’t get a good view of where the cats came from, but that one was about to jump the Siswa left him little choice. He fired off his bolt, hoping no one would step into his line of fire.

Not wishing to waste the wands precious charge Miklos with no offensive magic left had no choice but to run. He ran toward the transient safety of the Dwarf hoping that the creatures doubt would buy him the precious moments to spare his life.

The eerie silence surrounding the priest lent an unreal quality to the surprise menace of the black panthers. He felt strangely divorced from the scene, as if it were some kind of lucid vision. As Miklos turned to flee, the cleric ran to position himself between the his young friend and the cats to protect his back.

 

As the first panther was trying to make a meal out of the Siswa, the other black beast’s head spun toward the movement of the mage. It leapt forward with great speed, but Maruc bravely managed to intercept the creature’s charge.

All the while, the boned guardian of the chamber stood silently, not making a move to interfere in the battle that raged before it.

  1. Maruc (Clr 4)

    Praying to Halav that his armour would be proof against the creatures claws Maruc punched his shield out and leant his weight into the charging creature hoping to stun it and maintain his balence. He tried to wind the creature with his flail as they collided. He wondered if the sudden silence would confuse it long enough for the priest to incapacitate it.

  2. Miklos (Mu 3)

    As Miklos reached the Dwarf he stopped, dropped his staff to the floor and he fumbled for his spellbook. Locating it he pulled open the well thumbed pages to the sleep incantation spell. He checked to ensure he was no within the circle of silence encompassing the priest and started reading straight from the book….

  3. Reminder: Mages can’t concentrate sufficiently during battle to be able to cast spells straight from the spellbook. Sorry. 😦

  4. Miklos (Mu 3)

    Okies!
    Secure behind the Dwarf Miklos brandished his staff in an attempt to stop either of the Panthers from outflanking him.

  5. Saeth Tegau

    “Thief! This way!” Saeth was loath to use Nicholai’s real name in earshot of this ‘Rahib’. She ducked through the trapdoor, releasing her blade to draw a throwing dagger as she did. She peered around for the yelling Ylari, poised to throw…

  6. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    Feldard grumbled as his shot apparently missed and spent precious time reloading his crossbow. He snorted at the mages arrival and moved in front of Miklos preventing any panther from thinking making a lunch of the scrawny mage. They would need to go through him first.
