"Thank you, Cruel Justice, for chaos rules in darkness, but order is maintained in light"
The bear digs its teeth into the fallen champion and the man quickly expires. Maur watches as the bear begins to eat Hirasean. The other bear does the same with the dead cultists who once protected himself with shadows. A fitting end for men who worshipped a Goddess of Carrion and Cannibals.Caerth growls in annoyance at the weak cultist next to him. Not even bothering to engage, the half-orc druid instead rushes after the fleeing bard.
Without the druid to hold it back, the hungry bear looming over the fallen Hirasean starts tearing its fangs into the victims neck. The other bear, now without enemies around, likewise starts filling its belly with cultist meat.
The open door stands partly between the cultist and Angus, which gives the man a bit of extra defense but it won't last long.Angus gets an angry look on his face, glowering at the cultist who managed to evade two skillful blows just now.
Angus growls, "Ye waen't dedge a thoord!"
The blow is pure power, almost entirely lacking finesse. The cultist tries to block the blow with his mace, but the blade lands on the man's wrist, cutting it off, before continuing on its path, cleaving into the man's left shoulder, and cleaving him nearly in two; the blade stops just underneath the man's right side ribcage. Blood gushes onto the stone floor of the hallway, as the man's scream is stifled by the fact that his lungs have been savagely rended in twain during the course of the blade's travel.
Before the corpse can hit the ground, Angus takes a 5-ft adjustment forward, to get within range of the other cultist who just shattered Wieland's armor; Angus rears up, and tries to bring the pointed tip of his kite shield down on the man's head, but he dodges at the last moment; the shield strikes the floor, sending up a shower of sparks.
Angus growls again, "Ye're naext!"
"You won't dodge a third!"
"It was here," Meridith says as she fumbles around in the dark. "I can't see it anymore."Maur leaves the last cultist to Quinn and rushes back toward where he last saw Centaur and the rest of the squad, his darkvision easily piercing the gloom.
"What's what here? Where's the fighting?"
OOC: move to just next to the dead cultist behind Aureus, asks the question and either move to block the hallway next to Aureus or attack
Light spills down the southern corridor and Quinn is certain he can see Phar up ahead."Prepare to meet your punishment, cannibal" Says Quinn with disgust in his voice. he slice out with cruel justice to bring an end of the cruelty using both hands on the hilt.
The bear pulls the dead champion all the way down past Quinn into the corner and continues to gorge itself. Quinn can see that there won't be much left of the man once the bear is finished.The bear that killed Hirasean starts dragging the body through the hallway, away from the ruckus and towards a corner. It seems intent on eating the remains in quiet.
The bear sniffs the air for a few seconds and then growls. It goes back to eating the meal in front of it. It doesn't concern itself with the hutaakan rogue, as an inner force tells the bear that the two-legged being is a friend.JustinCase said:The other bear looks up, blood and gore spilling from its maw, and sniffs the air. Unsure, it takes a hesitant step towards the northern passage.
OOC: Let's see if the bear goes after a living target it can't see or continues to the eat the fallen foe in front of it... the bear keeps eating.
Wisdom check (DC 15): 1D20+1 = +1 = 11
Caerth rushes around the corner where the bard and other cultist went and near runs into a pair of ghouls that are standing in front of a large door at the end of a short hallway. The sight and smell of the two ghouls snaps the half-orc druid out of his building rage.JustinCase said:Caerth, meanwhile, is intent on finding that bard. He ignores the warning in his head that he is moving away from his allies too far, instead holding Kang tightly in his fist and continues running.
Where's that door she went through?
