Sunday 1 August 1280, Afternoon (A Crushing Blow)

The skeletons at the far end of the room manage to rip open the door and rush out, fleeing the party and the wrath of the Light called down on them by Gaven.

The remaining skeletons press forward. One comes at Duran and two attempt to take on Almo, but to no avail. However, the fourth skeleton delivers a crushing blow to the side of Wally's head with a sickening crack, and the halfling falls to the floor, obviously dead.

Gaven moves farther into the room to attack one of the non-turned skeletons, and Duran also attacks skeleton nearest him being careful to stay clear of the rotblood.

The cleric's attack misses its mark, but Duran's manages to take another couple of chunks out of the undead thing, which staggers backward in a vain effort to defend itself from the fighter's blows. Duran's skeleton seems on the verge of falling apart.

Almo likewise hacks at the skeleton before him, striking the monster twice, leaving it in a heap of broken limbs on the floor before him.

Oloc avoids the fighting. He makes sure the torch is held high to keep the scene illuminated.

Seeing Wally go down, Filbert rushes past Oloc in a blind rage, smiting the skeleton that killed his cousin with a mighty blow that shatters it into a thousand pieces of bone. The disproportion between the halfling's size and the power of his blow is surprising.

Gweneth and Jack dash into the room past Oloc as well, managing to flank east and gang up on one skeleton there, but neither is able to land a blow.
