Bob begins to laugh, even as his skin turns white and cracked. He smashes one of the chanting acolytes in the face with his hammer, who drops to the ground.
The other acolytes turn to each other with worried expressions, but they grab short spiky maces from their belts and pummel on Bob, to his amusement.
Pyrus ducks some sling stones, but is poked by the floating spear as he draws the shadows of the room into creatures which rush at his attackers.
One lashes out at the priest with shadowy tendrils and he visibly staggers.
Sesto blocks more sling stones with his shield while calling a burning light which sears the arm of the cultists with the knives.
The Priest fires a bolt of energy at Bob, but the shadow throws off his aim.
Bobranthus knocks an acolyte back with his hammer while catching his breath to laugh some more, but the two of them continue to bash at him with their maces. Pyrus, struck again and again by the Priest's floating spear, loses his concentration on the shadows, causing them to disappear. He blasts the cultist fighting Sesto, knocking him off guard long enough for Sesto to deliver the killing blow with his mace. Sesto's spirit-mace bonks the Priest, who curses and conjures a glowing arrow, which strikes Sesto, making him an easier target for the cultists who rain sling stones at him. (Most of which fail to penetrate Sesto's armour.)
