This thirty-foot-long colonnade has seen better days but is in surprisingly good condition. A few cracks mar the marble floors and walls, yet the six smooth columns that hold the ceiling up are in immaculate condition. Teodor sees that stairs descend further and then to the south there are even more stairs. There is a lantern at the top of the stairs in the next room to the west and there are several men there. They appear to be playing cards.
"They are not ready for us anyhow, why not just charge in? Casting can be heard and I have to see the target point of the summoning. Come on, grab your crossbows, bows, javelins et al and let's get them!"
"Drat! Are you people crazy!?"
Drath pulls back from the onrushing humans and throws the acid ball forming around his hands. It strikes the human that was running at him squarely in the chest, but most of the acid splashes harmlessly over the armor.
Michael grunts as he prepares his sword and attacks the first man to come into range. "You see, this is why it's never a good idea to give the enemy a chance. In the long run, it just makes everything messier."
Michael's attack takes out Roadkeeper4. Drath's attack hits Roadkeeper2 for 3 damage. Michelle flings some acid and hits for 2 damage on Roadkeeper2. Teodor's attack misses. Roadkeeper2 draws his shortsword and stabs at Michael but misses. Roadkeeper3 steps over his fallen comrad while he draws his shortsword and stabs at Michael with a hit for 5 damage. Roadkeeper1 draws a dagger and flings it at Michael but it misses. Everyone is up.
