    Jorran laughs as the tanglefoot bag finds it mark, but his mockery turns into a curse as the blindly swinging warrior catches him in the side. Jorran staggers backwards half a step before striking back, attempting to sink his sword into the bugbear, ready to step forth to meet another foe.

    Jorran's retalatory strike finds the blind bugbear's heart, killing him instantly. The lone goblin, now the last line of defense between the fierce warrior and the winch, anxiously gets into a defensive posture when suddenly from behind him the sound of breaking wood can be heard; in their desperate attempts to free the mechanism from the sticky goo, they broke it and while the winch now turns flawlessly, it fails to transmit any force to the floodgate's opening mechanism.
    Aya once again brings light upon the barricade and strikes the surprised psion with an arrow, making him stagger back out of sight.

    The grass finally stops twisting and turning, freeing Magnus and Mirielle from their predicament. Jorran splits the skull of the interposing goblin, and the two remaining bugbears gang up on him, the blind one trying to take a hold of him. Elsewhere, Aya kills yet another goblin with two arrows. The remaining ones kneel down to lessen their opposed parts, and are soon reinforced by three more goblins, these ones lying flat on the barricade and readying crossbows.

    Jorran fails to hit either of the bugbears, and they keep wailing at him with combined efforts.

    Jorran was suddenly, and acutely, running out of steam. His 36 seconds of exertion caught up to him as he struggled to combat the bugbears with weakened arms, taking a hit from the sighted one. He summoned his rage for a second more, roaring at the bugbears as an unreasoning avatar of rage, striving to replace their defiance with terror.

    Magnus's hammer crushes into the back of the bugbear with a resounding crack and the goblinoid goes down, neck bent in an unnatural angle. The last bugbear turns to flee, but is immediately stopped dead in his tracks by Jorran's sword. Over at the cave, the goblins lose yet another of their number to Aya's arrows and seeing the dam fallen, the abandon the barricade reluctantly, retreating inside the cave.

    Mirielle pulls out a pair of manacles and a lock and clasps them onto the bugbear. "Would the two of you like to interrogate him?" she asks Magnus and Jorran. "Anything we can find out from him will be more important than the few minutes it takes, but I doubt he'll willingly give up information. Just, don't undo the work I had to do on him." She then dumps a small amount of sand from a pouch on the ground and focuses on it intently. Shortly, it coils into a lasso, which she straps to her belt.

    Magnus looks in the cave, not looking at the hobgoblin or Mirielle, as he answers, "It's likely the thing doesn't even speak common. Even if he does, the only relevant information he could possibly have relates to the defenses in there, and any time spent interrogating him is time that the ones inside have to strengthen those defenses and get in position. No, it's best to just put him down, and continue. Anything he knows about motives behind this or larger schemes at play will undoubtedly be known by the leaders in the cave. Capturing them for interrogation will be far more useful."
