Ketil draws his mace and rapels down the secured rope, ready for the fight below.

In reply to Ketil Deepwalker (msg # 121):

Apparently short of torch, Hograth stows his crossbow on his pack and pulls out his axe and shield, holding his flint in his shield hand, before he realizes he will need those hands to repel down the rope. So he tucks his axe half back into his pack, where he can easily grab it, and his flint into his belt, and follows Ketil down.

Urrun waited until last, watching and waiting for the line to become unweighted before he took hold off the rope, gave one last look over the edge, then stepped off.

In reply to Urrun (msg # 123):

The ordinary lamp oil burns slowly, providing a light only barely brighter
than a torch., and mostly greases the floor, unlike alchemical fire, which
 explodes dramatically when ignited or hurled.

The room below is filled with corpses, and as you get closer
 (not rapelling, that requires a wall, and you are entering from the top
of a dome), you can see rats moving among the bodies, along with gaunt
Dog legged creatures with long claws.



Ooc: hidden lore, undead anyone?

Ghula are free willed undead natives of another plane of existence, enemies of the Hadereum, have a paralyzing touch and the ability to gate into shadow through piles of bone. Where more than three bones are in contact with eachother, they can make a gate.  This does not work with ash.

Hograth passes on this information as he lands and draws his axe and shield and looks around, scattering any bones he can see.

Urrun came last, and jumped the final few feet to land with a clatter among the decaying refuse. He came up quickly, drawing his own rusty axe from the loop at his belt as be blinked away to help his eyes adjust to the darkness.

13:10, Today: Urrun rolled 12 using 3d6.  Climb down rope (14).

In addition to the rats erupting from some of the many corpses, about 8 ghulae are in the immediate vicinity.

Hograth has clearly done this before. He has no trouble with the rope.

[Private to GM: Rolled 6 under skill.
Rolled 7 under unmodified will of 14, so target 18, right? Was that including Combat reflexes?

Unmoved by the appearance of the ghouls, or the rats exploding out of days old corpses, you are ready to deal with the ghouls

Seemingly surrounded, Urrun shuffled closer to Hograth, back to back, and let his lips pull back in a deep, rolling warning growl that echoed in the enclosed space. His ears laid back and his eyes seemed to grow wider in the dark as his yellowed teeth flashed in the half light.

Just before the Ghul closed he lunged forward and swung from the side with his axe with both hands.

Ketil moves to flank Urrun and Hograth, using the back-to-back pair as an anvil to strike from.  He swings his spiked mace at OE of the oncoming ghuls.

Urrun stifled a gag as he laid the Ghul open, then let out a thunderous series of barks that seemed overly loud in the underground chamber before he caught sight of the next one and let his axe fall.

Goran unsteadily makes it down the rope, but quickly joins the fray. He swings his flaming morningstar at the nearest Ghula.

Meeping amongst each other, the ghouls back off. Two are badly injured, the last is buring. Two intact ghouls grab a wounded one by the arms and retreat, a lone ghoul dives into a pike of half eaten bodies and disappears.
