    The kobold Arianelle attacks lifts its crossbow to shield itself from the oncoming blow. The sickle stabs into the weapon, cutting the catch which holds the bolt. Twang! A kobold steps back hurriedly to avoid the misfire. The crossbow, after its modification, looks more suited to be a club.
    The horse Mexanis sees, seems to be a perfectly ordinary horse, besides the fact it's white. The only strange thing, is that it's mane is slightly golden and-- glowing... The horse's two shiny eyes look at Mexanis invitingly. "Neigh!" it says, in a somehow nicer way then horses usually sound.
    The white kobold stops hissing to turn to Thargol, crossbow aimed perfectly at his head. The half-orc is still ten feet away as the white kobold aims. Click, the trigger is pulled back...... but the bolt stays where it is. The white kobold looks at its crossbow confused, trying to see if the bolt had disappeared without seeing its flight. As it does this, WHAM! The white kobold slides backwards from the force of the blow. It sways a few times, then, with his hand to the spear on its back, its teeth grit and a glare of utter fury -- falls to the ground...

    The other kobolds stare in shock at their fallen leader, as well as the monk that felled it. One reptilian shakes off the confusion, and aims its crossbow up at Arianelle. "Rauf, rauf!"
    'Wha-?' was the most likely thoughts of that kobold before the great monster leapt upon him. It was Jeff. The creature he savages would not be getting up any time soon.

    A wind feeds the flames into a sudden inferno, absorbing more bushes.

    Seeing the powerful work of his companion, Krey cannot contain his excitement "Woo-hoo!" he cries, then jumps back as the fire flares up again. He grits his teeth again and, understanding that the safety of the group is what he should be focusing on, darts from his spot and moves closer to the kobolds, while remaining in the foliage for cover, putting his guard up in anticipation of attacks.

    "That's a nice horse." He looked more than a little edgy. "Let's not sully Moradin's favor with blood, can you talk them out of this?" Inches closer to the horse he'd be able to step behind it if someone tried shooting at him. That was what it wanted, after all. "At worst they'll eat him instead of us." He glanced at the horse and shimmied closer to Mexanis. He wasn't keen on following everyone into a crossfire and getting his innards on display before their message got where it was supposed to go.

    Moving a little closer to Mexanis but standing beside the horse in view of everyone in the clearing. Ready an action to dive behind it and defend if someone attacks at range.

    Krey hustles closer to the kobolds, while the cowardly fighter sidles behind the horse.
    A more clumsy kobold had dropped his bolt into the foilage while reloading its crossbow, and only just now fishes it out and begins to once again load the weapon.

    In the distance, Gaariss challenges the other group of kobolds, alone. The lizardlings look to be snickering as they reload their crossbows. Twang! A flurry of bolts fly at the gnoll and blurring speed. The ranger sidesteps, just as quickly as the oncoming projectiles, but several kobold had shot late and anticipated this. A second flock of bolts fly at the gnoll. Unable to dodge, he brings out his over-sized battleaxe and handaxe, shielding himself best he can. Chink, chang, klunk! All but one of the bolts deflect off his axes, and the one that hit barely gets through the chainshirt Gaariss wears.
    Grinning largely at the frightened kobolds, Gaariss charges headlong into them. He decapitates one and severs another in half, vertically.

    The fight continues.....

    End of Round 1


    Beginning of Round 2

    The kobolds look at each other, shocked by the brave action of the monk and cleric. They aim their crossbows (careful to avoid shooting their own) and... click! Nothing happens. The kobolds examine their weapons bewildered. They spend their time unjamming their crossbows.

    I don't think I can really ride this thing into battle...but he's a normal horse! He can attack by himself!
    Go! Attack the kobold.
    Saying this Mexanis points to the kobold directly in front of the summoned horse. After ordering the horse, Mexanis moves behind Arianelle, calling out to Gauli as he does so. Come, Gauli. Or companions need us.

    I summoned a light horse, so I assume this is permissible. I believe its a standard action to direct it.
    Mexanis: Standard action to direct horse. Move action to get next behind Arianelle.

    ((Sorry for not saying this ealier, but I handle all rolls and actions made by animal companions and summoned creatures [unless they have no mind].))

    The horse seems disappointed by Mexanis' not mounting it. Still, it decides to charge into the kobolds. Charge Attack - (1d20+6)[21] Hoof - (1d4+6)[10] A strange, white, see-through smoke appears around the horse's front hooves as it charges. It pulls itself back suddenly, and throws its full weight down at the targeted kobold.
    The reptilian almost explodes from the impact. It's ribs are broken and blood splatters over the bushes around it, and burns away like acid... The neighs, frightened at the gush of blood, but steers itself back into the fray.

    The kobold blocks Arianelle again with its crossbow(club), the weapon is cut in two from the blow. It hisses what might be a curse, and draws its spear, beginning to strike...
    Jeff at this point, sees the kobold threatening the human who healed him, and jumps at the kobold's throat. Attack - (1d20+3)[19] Bite - (1d6+3)[6] Jeff catches onto the kobold's neck, ripping it badly and cracking the bone. The kobold chirps in pain, and writhes on the ground.

    Krey notes with a bit of disappointment that the kobold numbers are already dwindling without him. Nevertheless, he exits the foliage and moves toward the fray, exiting the bushes, and noting a strange lack of noise from the fire.

    Krey uses a move action to move one square north and three east (20 feet) and a standard action to use total defense for the round. Is the fire out somehow? Also, note that my being here today doesn't mean that I don't still wish you to NPC me if I don't show up later... did that make any sense?

    One cowardly dwarf started to sneak out from behind the trees and walk toward all the ruckus with no care for his well-being, fingers haunched like claws ready to rend flesh and tear at screaming kobolds so they cried for mercy.

    "I am the demon of Moradin!" He growled over the fire. "I'll spill your guts from your skulls and use them as flagons of ale for my friends who have stone bones to sate their thirst for dragon scales on!" He raised his arms for effect. "And blood suckled their beards that spilled down their gore spattered bodies which where bulging with Dwarf mighty muscles and horrid killing breath so the minute little dragon's kin screamed and begged for mercy but got none unless they run!" His wild eyes and snarling lips could only help, especially when his monologue wasn't far off from how he looked.

    The kobolds ignore the dwarf's foreign ravings. Anger -- unquenchable dark lust for revenge builds up in the reptilians. The outsiders injured and killed their comrades, were surviving with only injuries and, defeated their leader. "Rkksshiiyyaassss!" they cry.

    Let them scream as the Nine Hells!
    They drop their un-working crossbows, draw their spears, and charge while screaming something in Draconic.
    Attacks: Arianelle - (1d20)[18] Thargol - (1d20)[16] Thargol - (1d20)[18] Flank Jeff - (1d20+2)[4]
    Two kobolds come upon Thargol, trying to avenge their leader. Another one steps forward before attacking Arianelle like a berserker. A fourth stabs at Jeff from behind while he's distracted by another kobold.
    Damage: Arianelle - (1d6-1)[1] Thargol - (1d6-1)[4] Thargol - (1d6-1)[4] Jeff - (1d6-1)[2]
    Arinelle slices at the spear as it comes at her. Unfortunately, her hand-- soaked with sweat --lets slip her sickle, and the spear continues on with the weapon attached to its shaft. Luckily, the sickle unbalances the spear's thrust, but still the cleric's cheek, ear and nose are badly torn. She smells an overpowering scent of blood, coming from her own half-gone nose. [1 point of damage. You are unable to smell until healed. Your nose can be completely fixed only through magic healing.]
    Thargol is shocked by the sudden attack. He gets into combat stance and snatches at the first oncoming spear. He misses.... The small shaft continues on through the half-orc's hand and meets his shoulder deeply. Shouting in agonizing pain, Thargol forgets the second attacker... Spliishotch, the spear stuck out through the monk's back, having begun from his chest. The kobolds remove their spears quickly, leaving Thargol to writhe in his agony. [8 points of damage, status of dying: -3 HP. Unable to use right hand without magical or longterm healing.]
    Jeff's ears prick up. He jumps barely in time to avoid the kobold attacking his rear.

    The fire spreads more slowly then previously.

    Mexanis-- having no experience in combat --stabs pathetically at the kobold. It, in turn, catches the weapon by the blade, filling the human with shock and horror. The lizardling wrestles with Mexanis for his weapon ((Make a strength check.)). Strength - (1d20-1)[9]
    The horse is at a loss as to which kobold to attack. One attacks the wizard who summoned him, but the other is about to finish the dying monk. In quick decision, the horse attacks the former, hoping for the best. Attack - (1d20+4)[20] Attack - (1d20+4)[24] Attack - (1d20-1)[19]
    Hoof - (1d4+3)[4] Hoof - (1d4+3)[6] Bite - (1d3+1)[2]
    The horse's hooves come down upon the kobold, crushing many of its bones. With what life it had left, the kobold stabbed at the horse with its spear, screaming Draconic at the top of its injured lungs. The horse, luckily, sidestepped in time, and bit onto the kobold's head. The creature's skull was shattered -- and so it died.

    Er, is Arianelle disarmed now? Not that that changes her current action.

    "Aiii!" Arianelle staggers a moment and slaps her left hand to her gashed face. Regaining her balance, she draws it away again, little more blood-coated than it was already.

    Her own injury does not prevent her from watching Thargol run through...again. Ducking past the kobold's spear she watches the kobold, and the dog behind it, intently.

    ((Feeling a bit better....
    Oh yes, you are disarmed, Arianelle.))

    Arianelle steps away just in time to avoid another stab. Pressed between her and the dog, the kobold is hesitant to act. Jeff, however..... He was angry, the orc-person-thing was his master's friend and the kobolds hurt him -- but the blood, was what really gets Jeff excited. He takes advantage of the kobold's indecisiveness and comes upon it. Attack - (1d20+5)[14] Damage - (1d6+3)[7]
    As he jumps, the kobold swings around and hits him in the side of the head with its spear. Jeff misses, and pauses a moment to shake off the blow.
    The kobold turns quickly again to try and strike Arianelle, but it was still off balance from its defence.

    The cleric successfully heals Thargol. For him, the world snaps back out of the darkness that surrounded him. Stars and colours dance over his vision, the pain in his lungs surging through him like a burning disease. When the healing finished, all this went away, besides a strange tingling feeling pulsing through his body. Although the wounds through his hand and chest had been healed, blood still soaked his garment beyond recognition of its original colour.

    Still stunned from his injuries, Thargol's roll is clumsy on the dense foliage. The kobold who gave the half-orc his fatal wound stabs at him once again. Attack - (1d20)[15] Damage - (1d6-1)[2]
    The kobold's spear stabs into Thargol's leg, pinning him to the ground. He manages to half-stand and punch down at the creature's head, but it twisted the spear -- putting the monk in too much pain to even see the kobold.

    Gauli-- his madness snapped out of him briefly --charges at the kobold between Jeff and Arianelle, axe swinging. Charge Attack - (1d20+5)[25] Damage - (1d10+3)[9] (Critical Miss)
    The kobold swings around again, hoping to catch the dwarf on the neck -- it misses... losing the arm that held the spear. The kobold steps back, chirping horrifically with its shock and pain. It stumbles, and continues writhe as it lies there near dead.
    Gauli, his warrior instincts awoken by the kobold's blood, lifts up his axe and yells at the top of his lungs. You all know enough of dwarven to recognize it as a victory shout.

    Arianelle watches with dull puzzlement as the last kobolds standing stab themselves to death. Turning away from the gruesomely removed opposition, she stoops to bind up the severed limb of the kobold Gauli just cut down. Without looking up, she remarks tonelessly "Someone should check on Gaariss." Is anyone left to look? It's by the Light's mercy...at least...that any of us are even alive.

    Arianelle begins the gruesome process of treating the wounded kobold. It's unconscious now, but still writhing in pain.

    Thargol breaks the spear shaft near its head, and manages to pull out the spear. [Make a fort save against pain.]
