    Putting aside the blood pouring into his eyes for a second, Ludo hurled himself at the skeleton between himself and Sieghard, swinging Lammenbert's blade like a dervish. As far as he could tell, he got at least one hit in, although he had no idea how much good it was doing.

    Blood streaming down her face, her head pounding with pain from the backlash of her failed spell, Elsa staggered backwards. She needed to focus if they were to survive this battle, and for this she needed to be more than a spear-length away from the enemy.

    As Elsa broke free, her attacker tried to press forwards after her. Sieghard blocked its path, but as the line of shields advanced Orfeo found himself trapped against the bed. With nowhere left to crawl, the Tilean seemed to find his courage at last.

    Pushing himself to his feet, he struck aside a thrusting spear and threw his whole weight forwards against the skeletal warrior's broad shield. Dry bones were no match for the armoured mercenary's weight, and the dead thing pitched back into the pit with a clattering crash.

    On the other flank, Cesar put his sword through the ribs of one of the skeletons attacking Viggo. It looked at him as if he had only tapped it politely on the shoulder, then turned on its new enemy. Behind it, its two brothers kept up the pressure on Viggo and Adelbert. Viggo barely avoided being skewered by a pitted spearhead, striking the weapon aside the way Sieghard had taught him.

    Viggo Hirtzel

    Viggo could feel his right leg beginning to give way beneath him, trembling as the pain lashing through his wounded thigh intensified. To make matters worse blood was now streaming down into his eyes, obscuring his vision. It's just like the Caerfort road all over again!, he thought grimly. He'd been wounded across the scalp that time too.

    The terror and horror he'd been experiencing was slowly being replaced by something else. A grim sense of determination. A will to live. Anger, at these twisted nightmares that saw fit to attack perfectly innocent minstrels who had done no wrong and meant no harm to anybody.

    Focusing his anger on the back of the skeleton which had turned to attack Cesar, Viggo flung himself at his opponent. Slashing at it ferociously, trying to drive it back towards the edge of the pit.

    Now with some welcome breathing room, Elsa ran a gloved hand on her face to wipe the blood (only succeeding in spreading it more evenly) and called up another fireball to hurl at the skeleton directly facing her.

    Elsa's spell burst her target's skull in a splash of sooty flames. Falling apart by pieces, its age-worn bones pattered to the floor, letting its shield and spear fall one after the other.

    Redoubling his efforts, Orfeo pitched into the melee, trying to stop any more skeletons from stepping up to take the fallen one's place. He scored a couple of telling hits, cracking ancient bones with the edge of his sword. Raising its shield to cover itself, the undead thing retreated - and Elsa saw the gleam of the bronze trumpet at its hip.

    Before Orfeo could press the advantage, the skeleton beside it had stepped across to block the Tilean's pursuit. Its spear grazed Orfeo's helmet, but the blow failed to draw blood. Over on the other right, there came another hollow crash as Adelbert smashed another of their undead attackers to pieces.

    With three of their number destroyed and one scratching fruitlessly at the walls of the pit, the skeletons were being forced onto the defensive. Still they fought on like automatons, their empty eye-sockets devoid of fear or human feeling.

    Adelbert makes an All Out Attack on Skeleton #8. I'm assuming at least a two to one bonus and possibly a three to one if Cesar is helping so the target is either 66 or 76.

    Roll to Damage: (1d100)[77]

    Messed up damage roll - see OOC.

    He was vaguely aware of Adelbert shouting about trumpets but Viggo refused to let himself dwell upon the scribe's musical leanings. He nearly succumbed to a brief spark of panic as he felt himself wobble on his wounded leg once again. Any second now my leg is going to give out and then I'm going to end up dead and skewered!

    With a wordless cry of frustration and anger he redoubled his efforts to push back at the skeleton before him, desperate to return it to the embrace of Morr.

    As the skeleton next to him was cut down, Ludo changed tack, hurling himself against the other's shield, hoping with bodyweight and force to drive it back. He really only bounced off, but it was a sterling effort.

    "Trumpeter?" Sieghard muttered. His eyes shot from skeleton to skeleton until he noticed the cracked instrument on the belt of one that was moving away. Sidestepping Orfeo, he reached for his bow and sent an arrow flying towards it.

    Sieghard's arrow struck its target in the chest, passing between two ribs and through the space where a man's heart would have been. Glancing off the inside of the skeleton's spine, it hardly seemed to inconvenience the dead soldier.

    Passing its spear into its shield hand, the skeleton drew the long bronze horn from the rotted belt that hung over its pelvis. It raised the trumpet to its lipless jaws, and impossibly, it blew - a wailing martial note that echoed deafeningly in the stone-walled confines of the chamber.

    It was a good five seconds before the echoes died away - but when they had, its call was answered. Back beyond the darkness of the corridor, their echoes carrying and mingling through the crumbling hallways, other trumpeters were sounding the alarm.

    The party were holding their own, keeping the stabbing spears of the three skeletons still fighting at bay - but now it seemed reinforcements were on their way.

    Sieghard

    Sieghard stared dumbfounded at the skeleton. That shot would've killed any living foe, but the abomination didn't even seem to have noticed it had been hit. He broke free of his stupor when the trumpet sounded.

    "We need to run. We need to get out of here, now!" he shouted. There was an edge of panic in his voice.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Lets see... Maths... #3 should be at 5 wounds because of Orfeo's attack last round. Elsa hit for 1, Ludo for 3... 8 wounds...

    Sieghard fires an arrow at a skeleton (#3 if Orfeo fails to finish it before Sieghard's turn comes; #8 if 3 is dead and Viggo/Cesar doesn't kill #8; and #4 if 3 and 8 are both dead.) and moves towards the door. If we get really lucky and 3, 4, and 8 are all dead, Sieghard moves 3 spaces southwest and one space south (grabbing the trumpet along the way), otherwise he moves one space east and 3 spaces southeast.

    A bit convoluted, but I'm trying to account for as many possibilities as I can.

    (1d100)[21] vs 39/59 (Point blank on all 3 and I didn't forget the shields this time . Shooting into melee penalty against #3 or #8 if theyr'e still standing.)

    Desperate to keep the spear from jabbing into him again, Viggo kept moving despite the increasingly worrying throb in his thigh.

    Nocking another arrow to his bow, Sieghard let fly at the skeleton fighting Orfeo. This time, his shot hit the undead soldier squarely in the forehead, shattering the front of its skull. The eerie corpse-lights dying in its fractured eye-sockets, the skeleton collapsed to the floor in a rain of bones.

    Quite unfazed, the trumpeter stepped up to take its place. Sieghard wasn't hanging around to try another shot at that one - darting left, he dodged under the stabbing spear of the skeleton that had Viggo pinned in the corner, and in one glorious second he was free.

    For the others, still trapped behind the broad shields and stabbing spears of the skeleton warriors, escape might not be so easy. As if to drive home the point, Adelbert's opponent took advantage of the scribe's overextending himself. Its spearhead gouged his cheek and nicked his ear - any further to the right and it would have pierced his skull.

    Sieghard

    Sieghard glanced back, disappointed to see that the others hadn't followed.

    "Hurry or we're all going to die!" he called out, aiming another arrow at the skeleton still threatening his companions.

    When his shot missed, he considered continuing his retreat, but something stopped him. Perhaps it was the fact that the others didn't seem to have the good sense to escape while they still could, or maybe it was the fact that in his haste to get closer to the door, Sieghard had left his pack and gold behind. Probably the latter... Something about leaving the riches behind made escape seem less appealing.

    Reluctantly, he reached for his sword and shield again.

    While the others struggled ineffectually against the skeletal soldiers, Elsa's guards were proving their worth. Orfeo drove the point of his sword up through the empty jaws of the skeleton confronting him and Ludo, piercing its skull and sending it clattering to the stone floor. That was the last of them on the right - only a jumbled pile of bones and the one damaged creature scratching at the bottom of the pit remained.

    Over on the left, things were not looking as good. Cesar failed to get past the first skeleton's shield, and Adelber's attacker wounded him in the arm. His mail shirt saved him from the worst of it, but he could feel his own warm blood running down inside the cold metal links.

    Viggo Hirtzel

    Viggo's breath was now coming out in short quick rasps. Blood and sweat mingled together, flattening his blond hair flat to his scalp, running down his face and doing their best to blind him.

    His strength was leaving him now, his shoulders ached damnably and every time he moved, the weight of his pack nearly threw him off balance. He swung once more at the skeleton before him, acutely aware that the blow lacked the force of his earlier blows. "Why won't you just die?!" He screamed as he swung, unaware of the irony of the question.

    Unable to believe how poorly they were faring against the skeletal men Adelbert sliced again at the one he and Viggo were fighting, and losing against.

    Sieghard

    Sieghard clenched his teeth in frustration. The skeletons were annoyingly difficult to bring down and their time was limited before more arrived. He knew the best chance to survive was to run while there was still time.

    "Dammit, you two..." he grumbled before charging.

    Quickdraw sword and charge attack against #8 (if alive) or #7. End the charge south of whichever one so I'm only in contact with one of them.

    (1d100)[39] vs 41 +10 (charging) +10 (Outnumbering 2:1)
    (1d10+5)[11]

    Right. We're done here.

    Elsa hurried over to where she had left her gold-filled backpack and shouldered it. At least they wouldn't be getting out of here empty-handed.

    Crashing into the skeleton from behind, Sieghard put it down with a hard chop to the back of the neck. Its skull bounced and rolled across the stone floor, and Orfeo and Cesar spared the mercenary a nod of acknowledgement before charging into the last of the things left attacking Adelbert. Their blades cracked its ancient bones, but it remained standing.

    Ludo meanwhile had grabbed his sack of gold - and found it heavier than he expected. His efforts to lift it instead only succeeded in dragging it along the floor. He'd never dealt with so much filthy lucre before, but it seemed to him that a world in which you could overfill a sack of gold could only be the work of cruel and mocking gods.

    At the bottom of the pit, the skeleton that Orfeo had knocked over the edge was still scratching and scrabbling. If it kept up its efforts it would surely wear its finger-bones to stubs... but that didn't seem to bother it.

    I thought have time for this! Adelbert thought in desperation, his minds eye filled with advancing undead legions. With one last defiant swipe of his sword he moved towards the stairs as fast as his gold filled backpack would let him.
