Michael draws his sword and then hesitates for a moment as he tries to watch for the creature's intentions. The filthy, pallid figure lurches forward and charges at Michael. It claws at him hitting for 4 points of damage. I need a Fortitude save for Michael.
Druid speaks some words in Terran and a small glob of acid covers his hand. But when he flicks it away it catches on his gloves and simply flops almost on top of his boots.
"Night! Get it! Go around!"
Black pony neighs and runs toward the unnatural thing, its training powerful enough to overcome the reluctance of the natural beasts. It faithfully follows the path indicated by her master. Closing in on the undead things back, it rears up and slashes twice with its hooves, both connecting solidly.
Teodor thrusts at the creature and connects with a well placed hit. But the damage isn't as great as he had hoped. The thing takes 6 points of damage. Michelle casts a spell and flings acid at the thing for 2 points of damage. The pony strikes with both hoves but fails to do any damage. Shendra hits with her spear but fails to do any damage. The creature takes a step before attacking the pony. It attacks with a bite and two claws. All three attacks hit with the bite hitting a particularly vital spot. The pony takes 18 points of damage and goes down. Everyone is up.
Shendra retreats to a position of relative safety behind the boys and then looks back to the bleeding pony. She mumbles something as she focuses on drawing ambient life energy into the poor beast to staunch the bleeding from that gaping wound.
Michael swings and hits for the full 12 points of damage. Teodor attacks with both blades but fails to land a hit. Michelle casts a spell and two glowing missiles slam into the creature for 6 points of damage. The thing collapses to the ground. Shendra casts a spell on the pony. End combat.
Drath hurries forward toward his pony already pulling out poultices and bandages. Luckily, pony isn't THAT much bigger than a dwarf. Ten minutes later, her breathing grows easier, her burden is removed and put under a nearby tree.
"I will have to prepare healing spells now that we're in combat more. First thing in the morning."
