Defender (Lvl 8)
Mikara quickly fires an arrow that lodges right between the shoulder joint in the human's plate armor, then skips nimbly into an alley next to a large house.
Atreus gazes intently at the elf, noting the weak spots in her armor. He wraps the night around him like an old, comfortable cloak, and disappears, running silently behind the large house as well, passing Mikara.
Woe leaps forward, barely clearing Hacker's head, and, tossing his torch to the ground, strikes a confident pose, ready to charge anything that approaches.
Tristan shrugs and begins to circle the houses as well, but runs into a surprise; a squat, brutish looking hobgoblin waiting just around the corner with a drawn shortsword. "Well, hello there," he greets the newcomer cheerfully, then attempts to lop of his head with his oversized sword. The stroke is awkward and easily avoided.
Kathalia waxes pathetic, but her passion is backed by magic, and the illusory heart bursts with a wash of flame, engulfing the three armored foes in the street. She shifts into beast form.
The dwarf is the first of the enemies to respond, moving forward while chanting angry syllables. He clenches his fist, striking it into his opposite palm, and a blast of sulfurous flames erupts directly over Woe's head, knocking him to the floor. Hacker is caught in the blast as well and send tumbling down, though Woe's body shield's Kathalia from the worst of it. He easily douses the flames from Kathalia's broken heart.
The elf sings a bell-like note. Immediately some of the human's wounds close slightly, and Kathalia's flames die out from his clothing. The elf smiles, then draws her crossbow and fires, missing Kathalia by inches.
The human, no longer burning, bellows a war cry, and, with a flourish of his halberd, charges forward and strikes Kathalia. She ducks beneath the flashing blade, but not quickly enough; it leaves a wide gash on her back. The elven woman nearly swoons in admiration at the human's dashing charge, and she gamely tries to ignore the pain of her burns.
Behind the houses, Tristan's opponent returns the favor, missing him with a hasty cut. The twisted hobgoblin shuffles away, on guard.
Mikara feels two spikes of agony, as two slender arrows slam into her body from almost directly above. Looking up, she sees the outline of a gnome with a shortbow perched on the ridgepole of the large house she is sheltered behind. The gnome points, stabbing a finger towards her and towards Atreus. "Two of 'em here, the chick wit' da bow, and a guy wit' a knife. He's hard t'see, watch yer backs!" its ugly voice rings out clearly. Then it crouches and steps away from the edge, behind the ridgepole and out of sight.

//Virtue of Cunning: Kathalia may slide one square, as a free action, since an opponent missed her.//
"Gawds-*****! Watch it, *****-ball!"
Hacker stands. //Move: Stand Up//
Hacker pulls a chunk of charred scab off his own flesh, pops it in his mouth, and chews slowly. After he swallows, he extends the Digit of Disapproval at his enemies. //Minor: Designate Prey - Human//
Hacker takes a deep breath. He plucks a single string on his banjo, listens, and adjusts the tuning. Then, he launches into a high-velocity, hate-filled, death metal rant of pure, unholy profanity.
Somehow, the improbable inhumane invection in the song stirs the party's hearts and sharpens their senses for battle. //Standard: Concerted Effort - Until the end of Hacker's next turn, each target gains a +1 power bonus to attack rolls. Whenever a target hits with at least one attack during his or her turn, the bonus increases by 1 for each target whose turn has not yet started.//
The music suborns the human's will, forcing him to dance at bone-shattering velocity, directly into Woe's spear. //Action Point: Blunder v. Human, 1d20+6 (base) +2 (prey)=25 v. Will, 1d6+5 (base) +2 (prey) =13 damage, slide human to N13; Woe attacks with spear, 1d20 +9 (base) -2 (prone) +5 (Blunder) +1 (Concerted Effort) =24, 1d8+5=7 damage; Human marked by Woe.//
//Concerted Effort Bonus is now +2...//
//Team, I suggest that everyone spend the action points, because each turn a character hits, that bonus gets higher!//

New mingled with old.
Letting blood's not new to me.
'Tis but a nuisance.
Ignoring the gnome on the roof (for now), Mikara allows her racism to fuel her aim. She fires off two shots at the man in armor, but realizes that the damage just wasn't enough. She looses two more arrows which strike a little deeper and disappears behind the building.

Atreus moves closer to his prey, completely ignoring the shouts from the rooftop. Passing the corner he sees that the elf hadn't moved an inch, which will not be to her advantage. Atreus smiled.
The shadow reaches the end of the alley and from his back shoots forth almost invisible tendrils that pierce and strangle the elf, while dragging her from his wounds nearer to the Revenant hiding in the alley.
" Hello Elf " the Assassin greets the fey as he pulls forth his deadly Axe. " You have no idea whom you are dealing with, do you? " he says standing right before her in the shadow where he watches her closely with his glowing red eyes, observing her every movement.

//After Woe's hit, the Concerted Effort bonus increased to +2.
After Mikara's hit, it increased to +3.
After Atreus's hit, it is now +4.
The bonus applies to attacks against any enemy and ends at Hacker's EONT.
For the love of Pete, use those action points, so you can take advantage of the bonuses!//

Scout (Lvl 6)
Tristan grins at the hobgoblin. "Well, that wasn't a very good start for either of us. Don't worry though, I won't keep missing."
In a blur of movement trailing ethereal silvery leaves, Tristan is suddenly behind the hobgoblin. He swings a diagonal downward strike but almost trips, then nearly gets his sword caught on the wall of the building beside him. However, luck is on his side and the elf does manage to land the attack, giving the goblinoid a nasty cut.
Re-establishing his footing, Tristan strikes out and hits again, channeling Dayna's power to link him to his foe, disallowing escape.
With two new cuts in his opponent, Tristan's predatory smile gleams in the dim night.

// Kathalia will also wait for an update, as she has some serious positional planning to do. Probably going to use predator's flurry to try and daze two of our opponents, hopefully can get some flanking in with Woe...
