In reply to Hograth Podkarmen (msg # 194):

Once the bodies are separated, you find your way back into the south room.
The stairway down is about a yard and a half wide, and is open to the left side. A stink of death and a faint rustling sound comes from the darkness below.

Goran approaches the stairs, and shines the light from his glowing stone down into it.

Hogarth holds his shield up, covering a comically large portion of his body, readies his axe and approaches the nearest one.

You descend the stairs slowly. The ratthings circle round the base of the stairs, preventing flanking. Their quils look oily in th light.

"I can hold the line if you want to try." Goran says, and steps forward. He readies his shield to receive a charge.

Hograth drops back and stows his axe, before drawing his crossbow, all the while holding up his shield.

Crossbow was cocked (and loaded, but bolt later removed) when he was coming down into the
 structure...he will use 2 hands when he has the crossbow in hand to load it, but the shield
 stays on his arm. It takes too long to remove it, and it does not need removing to fire a
crossbow, as I understand. It is just unreadied.

Hograth aims very carefully at one of the rat things at the base of the stairs, aiming at the vitals if it has any with his silver bolt.

Ketil aims his crossbow down the stairs at the creatures, waiting for Hogarth's shot before firing his own.

The bolt strikes the rat thing true, impaling it in the vitals, and it coughs up blood and falls over. This was a living creature, and never one you have ever heard of as being undead...

Hograth raises his sheild and prepares for its friends to attack, dropping the crossbow to slide to his back on it's sling as he readies his axe.

Hograth manages to ready his axe just in time, and brings it down on the creatures head as it tries to bite him.

[Private to GM: Rolled 4 under parry without shield, rolled 3 under attack to hit, rolled 10 damage. If bite, that would be to head, right? Silver coated axe...]
