Sunday 1 August 1280 (After the Ball)

Gaven bellows seeing the fall of Filbert, and yells, "Your Master fell, now flee from the Light!"

Without their leader, and confronted by the righteous fury of the cleric, the skeletons once more falter, this time turning and running for the north door.

Duran turns his attention to the skeletons fleeing from Jack, firing his bow at the undead, while Oloc throws his dagger at the nearest skeleton. Jack, Gweneth and Karnak all also join in hacking down the running enemies from behind.

Even Almo senses their flight, and he swings his blade wildly with a mad halfling battle cry, nearly hitting Gaven by mistake. The cleric quickly sidesteps to avoid the unintended blow from the small warrior.

In a matter of moments, it's all over,* and the last of the skeletons lies unmoving in pieces near the door across the room from you.

The room is now silent. The puddle of crimson fluid in the eastern portion of the room seems slowly to be getting smaller. And you hear a very faint sound – almost imperceptible –  vaguely reminiscent of stone scraping on stone, but far quieter and more subtle, coming from the altar.


OOC: Actions?

*I didn't bother with hit rolls since with the skeletons were turned (and Rottblood was dead), allowing them no riposte. With their demise a given, and the only variable being time, I just ruled it "a matter of moments."

MAJOR EDIT: Also, I forgot to include Gaven's Protection from Chaos which was still in effect last round, meaning the skeleton's roll of 19 did NOT hit him. So in fact, Gaven is at 10/12 HP still. My apologies for overlooking that!

Time: 17:40
Current Torch Expires: 18:10

Oh, and the bones to the north are the skeletons you just killed.


  1. Gaven - cleric

    Gaven goes over to Filbert's body and cleans him up as much as possible. Gaven says a prayer to the Light in Filbert's honor.

    Gaven will then examine the alter.

  2. Duran - Fighter

    Duran calls to Karnak and feeds him from his pack. He then goes and checks on Almo to see if he can be of any help. Finally he helps examine the altar.

  3. Oloc - Mage

    As Gaven and Duran tend to the others, Oloc will listen at the far door before turning his attention to inspecting the altar.
