[LPF] The Devil We Know

Your counter-attack is devastating with one of the skulking rogues down and another rat lies bleeding on the plank floor.

Menik spoils the summoning spell the man was casting, leaving him wounded and dazed from the scream.

Amien managed to trip the thug.


The blinded man begins casting his own spell as well. The rats continue to gnash and bite at you. Both Lydia and Tsaaruk receive nasty bites from filthy jaws.


The tripped man acrobatically rolls away from Amien, Lem, and Galandra and regains his feet. The other man steps into his place and stabs at the exposed flank of the halfling.

Lem says after being seriously wounded by the man, "Getting a bit hot for me here in the front row... Lem awaaaay!"

Tumbling to H17 and tossing an acid flask at the man at H14... but missed.

[sblock= URGENT OOC FOR PARTY] I'm starting to think this more than we can chew. Galandra doesn't have Greater Cleave so she can only down two rats at a time at best.

Galandra has Sacred Touch to stabilize any dying party member if needed but I want to know if we are willing to surrender if someone falls given we are outnumbered and some of us are already heavily wounded.

In any case we should attempt to fall back to the entrance to handle them better. Next round I could try take position on H20/I20 with someone else (Amien?) while the rest are behind us healing themselves or try to do ranged attacks. Preferable, Lydia/Menik would have to try to take care of the rat at I20 first.

What are your thoughts?[/sblock]

"Ow!" Lydia exclaims, shying away from the rat nipping at her. She takes a step back, loading her staff as she does, and without taking even a moment to aim, flings it harshly at the beast...

[sblock=DM]5-foot Step to I22.
Move Action: Load sling staff.
Standard Action: Attack rat 5 (15 + 4 = 19, Damage: 4 + 1 = 5).[/sblock]
...and apparently going on instinct works out rather well for her.

"Woo, on a roll!" She exclaims with a fist pump.

"THE DOOR, NOW!" Galandra shouts seeing the way cleared where she and Amien could better hold them off or escape.

First Post
Tsaaruck beginning to feel the rats bites adding up takes a step back and a more defensive stance swinging his hammer at a rat missing badly as his wounds and a more defensive focus limit him. "Filthy Rats probably diseased. I'll need a bath after this! Could use some help here!"

[sblock=OOC for party] Tsaaruck needs some space to drink his CLW potion and then he can go back on the offensive. Rat with 20 HP - who knew. If we regroup we may still pull this off.[/sblock]
