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.

Urrun looked around warily as the Ghulae retreated, picking his chops and stiffing a bark as they fell into a full retreat.

"You two ok?" He growled.

Goran betrays the faintest hint of a smirk, in the flickering light of his flaming weapon.

"Yes, we seem to have routed them easily."

Hograth follows them, trying to kill them, as far as the entrance of the room.

The ghula tries to claw at Hograth as he pursues!

Dodge or parry to avoid- what is DR?

The parrying  axe blade cleaves through the arm, leaving it dangling by a scrap of rubbery gray flesh, and tarry black blood oozes out of the stump.

Urrun watched as the Dwarf gave Chase and then have a hearty laugh to disperse some of the lingering nervousness as the Ghul's arm was cut free of it's rotting body.

"Good! Good...this one will teach them to fear us"

He looked Goran up and down. "You alright?"

The room you are in has one unwounded ghula, one armless one, two moderately injured ones dragging a gravely injured one, about twenty bodies that are human, one odd looking set of bones surrounded by a black stain, and one other stripped down body with horns. There appear to be several exits, along with dozens of rats...

The nearly armless ghoul collapses in a spray of black gunk as Hograth's axe nearly splits it in twain!

Ketil moves in, swinging his mace at the nearest ghul.

In no rush to close with the undead again, Urrun slips his axe back into his belt, and seemed to be getting ready to procure some other item or weapon.

The ghul is knocked back with a crunch.

[PRIVATE to Ketil Deepwalker: our convention is to roll damage along with the roll to hit in ordervto speed play- the roll might be wasted on a good dodge but we can keep rolling. These ghouls are principally mooks so it will go down in another hit]

Urrun, his axe now dangling back in the ring in his belt, drew out a sling, the cords trailing as it uncoiled from it's pouch.

The blow drops one of the injured ghulae that were dragging the greviously wounded one, and the other one dives into a pile of corpses and disappears.

Urrun finished loading a sling stone and looked about, wary of any more surprises.

"Anybody hurt?" he called as he moved nearer to the pair.

The remaing wounded ghulae scramble under the corpse pile and vanish.

Meanwhile, the lantern oil ignights, and sets several rats on fire.

The stench of burning hair and singed flesh is abusive, even to Urrun's jaded senses.

Ketil moves quickly to burn as many of the corpses as possible.  The foul stench nearly chocking as it fills the room.

Burning a score of bodies will make the air unbrwatheable and yake far more fuel than one vial of lantern oil... more like a cord or two of wood, or rbree barrels of charcoal or ten dlasks of slchemical fire or a barrel of lantern oil.

As it is, scent and vision are compromised.

What will not burn will be scattered. But time will be given for it to burn, and the air to clear, during which time Hograth will stand gaurd at the entrance.
