Gwylla tries to get to the end of the tunnel in time to help, but the muck pulls at her skirts slowing her down. Emmyr emerges from the tunnel ready to fight as he watches poor Templeton scratch his flint and steel to get a torch lit enough for him to fight in the almost complete blackness. The dwarf lets both hiss handaxe fly, but had to angle one up to avoid the paladin and it flies wide of its mark, the other clipping the side of the creature's head. Meanwhile a dagger from the rogue takes and bounces off the moving shield of the paladin, deflecting back to towards the rogue to land near his feet.

Rana grumbles as she continues forward, and Bekah is almost in tears as she crawls through the mud.

Zanword keeps his shield between him and the ghouls as he reaches a hand towards Aridha. He feels the cool sensation of magic pass through him as Beory helps heal his friend. With its back towards the druid the ghoul tries again and again to claw the paladin into submission, not ready for the huge dire wolf to come up from the floor and nearly tackling the undead minion. The ghost white wolf is large and blue-eyed, with what looks like a large spot of blood on its forehead. Its jaws latch onto the things leg and worry it nearly apart.

Hexiros had edged his way as far from the tunnel as he could to let the others get out, but he felt he still need to get some space between himself and these foul creatures. He thrusts and swipes at the last ghoul fighting as he circles it slowly.

"I think we're done here."
Zanword relaxes somewhat when he sees Aridha up and about. And with vengeance. He is still taken aback by her monster forms, but that is something to explore at the future time. Like when there aren't undead trying to eat them around.

Still, there is job to finish and his cutlass cuts deep into the monster in front of him.

“Guid girl!” Emmyr shouted as Aridha turned into a giant wolf and bit the ghoul in half. “Though ye moight ‘ave a stomach ache later.”

The dwarf danced passed Zanward to get to the remaining ghoul, drawing his other sword. He slashed twice at the undead monster.

As the dire wolf tramples one of the ghouls, Zanword and Emmyr dispatch the other with little effort. The din of battle drops as silence falls over the group.

Aridha growls and turns her head this way and that, sniffing at the dank, oppressive air. Her thick, stubby claws click on the flagstones as she moves over to give the humans in the group a little more space to move.

Rana and Bekha follow Gwylla out of the tunnel as Zanword turns the corner and impales the limp ghoul as it tries to get away.

Emmyr and Hexiros step up and casts about, but see no sign of any other creatures. Templeton retrieves his dagger and his torch shows the old woman the bodies of the two dead ghouls, and the bloody spot on the white direwolves forehead. "What happen here? Did one of these creatures bite Aridha?"

She looks about at the ground. "Cairn-eaters, and is that her blood there? Bah! No matter. We need to burn these bodies, and the blood. We can't leave a drop if there are anymore of these things about. Find something we can mop this up with and then burn it all."

A confused Bekha looks to the others as if they may know what the old witch is talking about.

Aridha returns to her human form then, still wincing and holding her side. While the others see to the blood, she tends her wounds to make sure they don't go bad...especially important given the rot of the monsters who attacked her. She seems a little quiet and subdued as she works.

"Well...useless as teets on a bullette I was there..." the rogue grabbed his thrown knife. "Wait...there were more of em eh?"

OOC: Correct, Aridha is probably the only one who saw the one she burned with the flaming sphere run off, and can point to the natural tunnel as where it went.

Emmyr retrieved his axes and cleaned them off. “I need t’ get me summore o’ these,” he muttered. Then he went over to Aridhe. “Le’s see tha’, lass,” he said, examining her wound. “Unfortunately I ain’t nae cleric t’ be ‘ealin’ ye,” he apologized. “Search aroon’ these caskets, see wot we c’n find.”

"Be careful," Aridha warns. "Templeton's right. One of them ran off down that way."

She nods at the passage it had taken.

"It's hurt though. I think we can finish it off."

The druid nods at Emmyr and casts a spell of her own, mending some of the hurts, if not all of them.

[roll0] cure wounds, 1st level.

OOC: A little fast forwarding and shold anyone wish to they may take a short rest as it will take some time to gather/burn the ghoul bodies.


Room Description:
Most of the niches are empty, but a few contain splintered coffins, wrappings, and gnawed split bones. The floor is littered with bones and debris and one of the southern niches has been dug out to show a natural tunnel.

Emmyr and Hexiros dispatched the last poor ghoul (used rolls from RG) and drag its carcass to the pile of ghoulish bodies. As the others wipe up the blood and gather pieces of wood to burn the bodies it is of course Bekha who has to ask. "Why are we doing this? It seems like a lot of work for creatures who are already dead... again."

"Phaw!" Rana gwaffs and waves a hand. But she does hesitantly look about and sees a questioning look in more than a few eyes. Sighing she looks down as she speaks. "The girl is cursed." she states flatly, and looks up to stare Aridha in the eye. "I am sorry girl, but it is true. The creature that attacked you was no ordinary were-creature, but the Prince of Beasts himself. His blood and your own somehow became entwined, due to your wounds and the lucky blow you gave it. The druids used the demon blood to trap a part of that demons power within you."

She goes quiet a moment as her story sinks in. "But if..." Bekha starts to say.

"If one of these things were to get that blood into them who knows what would happen. What it would do to these monstrosity. It might be able to escape through one of them and return once more. Loose again in the world, like the night it... it killed her parents."

The fire crackles and pops as no one speaks for several moments.

Templeton snorted nervously in the uncomfortable silence as if there was some humor in Rana's words. He then looked up sheepishly and began to whistle and look elsewhere.

As the fire burns on the rogue explores the crypt. Near the front where the tiles change and probably a door once stood Templeton finds a makeshift secret compartment, at about waste level. Someone had dug out a small flagstone and then hollowed out the earth behind it to try and hide a leather satchel.

Removing the bag it tinkles with the sound of many glass objects, as well as the jingle of coin.

[sblock=Looking inside]
-Seven clear vials with what looks like water in each of them.
-One light blue colored glass vial with a white liquid in it. A strange red bead of some other liquid swells to color the entire contents red before contracting to a small peas size dot over and over again.

“Oy! Wotcha find there, ratcatcher?” Emmyr asked as he and Hexiros returned to the main crypt. The dwarf was cleaning the blades of his axe. He nodded to Hexiros to toss the ghoul body onto the pyre. “Noo where tae? There’s another tunnel doon ‘ere. Or we cuild gae back up. There were some double doors we ne’er opened.”

"I'd rather not climb back up since we're already here." Zanword offers "And we might surprise the cultists by popping where they don't expect us. We just need to be careful not to enter into their main hall without preparation."
