Rince continues to pray for Zhen, hoping that she will soon prevail against the creature.
With the group being trapped in a small tunnel, there is little Rince can do. With all the penalties, I'd only hit on a 20 with my sling. I have limited ammo and limited spells.
[sblock=Actions]Standard: Inspiring Word (Sp): As a standard action, you can speak an inspiring word to a creature within 30 feet. That creature receives a +2 morale bonus on attack rolls, skill checks, ability checks, and saving throws for a number of rounds equal to 1/2 your cleric level (minimum 1). (5/day)
The kobold backs away carefully keeping his spear up in a defensive gesture. As his feet bump into the body of his companion it freezes for a second then steps to his right propelling itself out of the light, fading into darkness.
It's moving in that direction. Rince can squeeze by Darius without interrupting him, just count it as you would rough terrain. Remember that the only source of light right now is Darius' light spell so you may want to take another light source in the room with you.
[/sblock][sblock=OoG]RL is taking it's toll lately, and with the holidays coming up it's made all the more difficult. I'll try to keep things going for you guys though. I will post here at least once a week, so don't think I'm abandoning this adventure if you don't hear from me for a couple of days.[/sblock]
As Zhen steps further into the darkness she loses sight of her enemy. Behind her the light from the hallway shoots like a dim spear into the room, but it fails to reveal much to either side. From the darkness comes a spear which misses Zhen by a wide margin. She swings her mace into the darkness, but fails to connect with her target. The thief she pursued into the darkess makes another attempt with it's spear, but Zhen is prepared and parrys the thrust without much effort, however the additional spear was not something she was anticipating, however her armor deflects the the strike.
Rince moves forward but remains near Darius shielding him from any attack that might come into the hallway. From the tunnels behind comes a new light and with it a familiar face. Orion Drake steps up behind Darius.
[sblock=Rolls]AOO Kobold vs Zhen Zhen vs Kobold Kobolds vs Zhen[/sblock][sblock=Map]
Orion makes his around the corner just in time to see Zhen Yu get attacked down the narrow hallway."My apologies friends." He nods to Darius as he makes his way past him and the unfamiliar man, ending up standing next to Zhen Yu with his sword raised ready to strike the kobold that just missed her.
Orion rushes to aid, his glowing greatsword biting deeply into the first of the thieves he comes to. As he does his light reveals much in this dark room. On the far side of the room, beyond the slow moving stream of sewage, is a pillow strewn old chair. However what may be of more import is that the light also reveals a large chitinous creature, whose two pincers seem quite strong, is only mere feet away from Orion. Behind the crab-like thing stands a far more armed, armored, and competent looking version of the scaled humanoid thieves you've seen so far.
Seeing the two better armed and armored opponents out of the corner of her eye, she pressed her attack on the nearest Kobold. "Take care for yourself, Sir Drake. I can handle this one here! Then we can subdue the other two."

Zhen avoids the spear of the thief in front of her, but Orion is less lucky with his opponents. The tough looking thief barks out a command at the sewage coated chitinous thing which quickly grabs the paladin in his claws and begins to crush. The theif mutters something and lets out a dry laugh as it steps to the side and flings a small rock at Zhen with it's sling. The rock misses and bounces off the stones beyond her.[sblock=Rolls]Kobold vs Zhen=3 Miss Giant Crab vs Orion=22 Hit Giant Crab Damage and Grapple=4 damage, 21 grapple Giant Crab Constrict Damage=3 damage Tough Kobold vs Zhen=10 miss
