Praying to Halav that his armour would be proof against the creature’s claws, Maruc punched his shield out and leant his weight into the charging creature hoping to stun it and maintain his balance. 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.
Feldard grumbled as his shot missed, and spent precious time reloading his crossbow. He snorted at the mage’s 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.
Secure behind the Dwarf, Miklos brandished his staff in an attempt to stop either of the Panthers from outflanking him.
Nicolai launched an arrow into the panther that was attempting to chew past Maruc’s shield, but the beast barely seemed to notice the wound as he was entirely focused on the priest.
“Thief! This way!” Saeth was loath to use Nicolai’s real name in earshot of this ‘Rahib’. She ducked through the trapdoor, releasing her blade to draw a throwing dagger as she did. The door dropped her down into a tiny cavern. She collided with someone that had been on the other side of the door. The speed of her movement pushed the man backwards, catching him off balance. From the looks of him, it was none other than the Rahib himself!
