    R4T16: Brother Jaume grasps the brass symbol of his God and loudly prays for divine assistance. With a look of concentration on his face, he looks slightly right of center of the room.

    Okay, shippie, here's how it works. 60-degree cone ("vector") a round. That's it. Not 60-degree field of vision, twirl in place to cover > 60 degrees in a round. If you change your field of view so that you are facing more than 60-degrees in a given round, you won't lose concentration, but you "wash out" your divination sight.

    So, this first round, you are facing 060-degrees relative to the north-centered map, to roughly cover the area just south of the current battle containing R2.

    Brother Jaume, you already detect magic within the first casting and "vector" (see spoiler). That is all the information you have this round. You will have to continue looking next round along this specific, and limited 60-degree cone to start getting more information on your next turn.
    R4T15: Dorn does a full crouching-crawl north to get to the ratling.

    R4T14: Jean, R1 disappears from view.
    R4T13: Gaye (and Haru and Javert and Jean), R2 disappears from view.
    R4T12: Björn, a ratling immediately appears above you as a book sails down at you and hits you in your face for 3 mod. It then backs up out of your view. Jean, you do see R3 now, backed away from the edge of the bookshelf.

    End Round 4, Begin Round 5 ...

    R5T21:
    Gaye moves south, easily hopping from table to table. She casts a spell at R3, just barely hitting it with a beam of shifting colors, severely sapping it of 5 STR. The little thing can barely move its own body.

    R5T20: Haru, what do you do?

    R5T20: Noticing the tactics the Ratlings are using, Haru will prepare himself for the inevitable return of the second Ratling, readying another blast of Cold energy to launch into its face when it surfaces.

    R5T17: Reaching down, Jean picks up a chair and makes ready to throw it at the next ratling to appear.

    R5T16.5: Javert starts moving south on the bookshelf and only gets five feet before he stops and caws loudly but thrashes with his beak wildly, and doesn't even seem to be effectively threatening from his spot.

    "The thing is right in front of me!"

    R5T16: Brother Jaume maintains his concentration. Still detecting magic, he can now tell that there is a single magical aura that is faint in his cone. He still can't pinpoint it quiet yet, just that he detects a single faint magical aura in this 60-degree vector. Do you still want him to move, or to wait a few more seconds when he can pinpoint the source?

    R5T15: Dorn crawls along the top of the eastern bookshelves, heading north.
    Spoiler: Brother Jaume
    Show
    Brother Jaume, as Dorn does so, you instantly register a second magical detection (faint) in your cone, and you figure it must be Dorn (process of elimination/ observation, your spell hasn't actually localized it as such). That still leaves the first, unknown faint aura that you have yet to localize.

    ALSO, out of character ... it takes a SA to continue concentrating on a spell (like detect magic). Total defense, assuming that is what you meant by full defense, also takes a SA. You cannot perform a SA in one round, and still ready a SA. So, no readied action since you had already continued concentration on your divination. If you want to ready total defense, you will have to drop concentration and then ready on your next turn.

    R5T14-12: R1 suddenly appears, having tried to bite through the bevor of Björn's astral juggernaut armor. It looks like it managed to bite in between chinks of armor, and yet the suit protects the northman once again. A chair sails wildly in that direction, tossed very poorly by Jean. Javert doesn't fare quite as well and takes 2 from R2 as it appears, but R2 gets hit by Haru for 2 cold and it is staggered. R3 disappears from view.

    End Round 5, Begin Round 6 ...

    R6T21:
    Gaye casts a similiar ray of energy as before at R1 as she did at R3 previously, but this one hits perfectly to instantaneously paralyze it. R1 simply slumps to the ground.
    Spoiler: Paralysis Type
    Show
    Unlike a ghoul's paralysis, or the hold person spell, this is a "realistic" paralysis where the body simply cannot support its own strength so it falls in place (not dramatically off the bookshelf, sorry) and lies limp.

    R6T18: Björn, a ratling lies paralyzed and helpless on the bookshelf in front of you. What do you do?

    I apologize, there are two magical detects, not one. Anyway, you finally localize both magical detections to Haru's belt - two vials of fluid.
    Knowing he spent this time with a red herring due to his teammate's magical elixirs, he moves forward to edge Haru out of the cone of his divination until he stands at the corner of the table Haru is standing on, and then faces north to detect that way. He senses no magic in this cone

    R7T18: Björn fights through the pain and swing his sword while he has the chance. And as chance would have it, it is the third critical in a row (for all combatants, not just himself), and enough to cut deep into the ratling to drop it.

    Was a move action just to get off the table safely, and another move action. You are at the base of the ladder, not on it.

    Haru and Gaye delay ...

    R7T18: Björn, who suffers 1 bleed, sheathes his sword and climbs down the ladder.

    "He isn't up here anymore!"

    R7T16: Brother Jaume will follow Björn and grab his arm. "Hold still ya git, you're bleedin' all over creation!"

    BJ prays loudly while grasping Björn and his holy symbol, giving 5 healing.

    Dorn looks around, bewildered, since his quarry isn't about.

    A tiny voice is heard from all the way on the other side of the room. "I yield! I quit! My leg's busted, my friend's are dead, and you've successfully invaded my home. Do you seek nothing but blood? Please, I can't continue fighting!"

    "Two big rats hiding just under the level of the floor in the fissure."
    As Javert wheels about in the far corner of the room, a loud squeaking sound is heard from atop the far bookshelf, followed up by what sounds like actual spellcasting. Two bolts of arcane force zip out at Javert and hit him for 7 force. Two big rats - each the size of a small dog - come up out of the fissure and move forward.

    The loud squeaking was actually a language that quite simply stated, "Sic em, boys!" You aren't really sure what language that was, let alone why you understood it.

    This isn't attempting to demoralize, but seems like an attempt to use the Intimidate skill to "Influence an Opponent's Attitude." Since that normally takes a full minute, I apply the same penalty when trying to do it in a round as I do for Diplomacy, which is a -10 penalty to the check. Also, at that rate is a standard action, meaning you don't have a standard action available to ready the total defense action (requires SA). S'okay, this is still a form of learning, and trying something new with your PC.

    R1T13: Haru, it is doubtful that the dire rats - for that is what they are - are going to understand Brother Jaume if they go before whatever on top of the far bookshelf seemed to command them in a strange, squeaky language. Still, a friendly did try to verbalize a stop, but you are absolutely sure it fell on deaf ears.

    R1T12: Not bothering to speak, Jean tears his scimitar down at the giant rat's head. The caster, Javert! Find him!

    Jean's blow lands heavily (DR1 takes 8), indeed, and it looks like the rat has almost had it.

    R1T10: Javert lands on top of the edge of the bookshelf, pecking at something that you can't see.

    R1T6: Björn holds, pending a target he can get to.

    R1T5.5-.0: DR2 tries to nip at Haru, but not before Haru casts a spell right at it. Of course, casting a ranged spell right next to it is its own problem as that itself opens up an AOO from both ROUS'. As it is, both ROUS' miss their AOO, Haru misses his target, and his own target misses its normal attack.

    R1T3: Gaye acrobatically moves through the line and past the rats to stand on the other side of DR1. She stabs it with her rapier to put it out of its misery.

    R5T12: Hoping he isn't too late, Jean steps back to the doorway and closes it. "It turned invisible. Be quiet, listen."

    Jean notices that while there is no hole in the ceiling, there is the fissure in the floor. It is large enough for one of the dead rats to slip into, let alone a smaller ratling.

    Though Björn, Brother Jaume, and Haru were still outside when Jean shut the door (with himself ostensibly still inside), since he didn't try to whisper what he said all three of those outside heard and understood him.

    Javert delays ... I assume, so as not to foul up whatever Jean has in mind, that Björn and Haru continue to delay ...

    R5T3: Gaye seems ready to cast a spell ...

    End Round 5, Begin Round 6 ...

    R6T12: Jean, what do you do now? Everyone is being as still and quiet as they reasonably can.

    Every ally delaying, unknown assailant on deck ...

    Brother Jaume carefully opens the closet door. He just manages to back up slghtly as a jar of fluid drops in front of him onto the ground, splashing. The liquid on his leg itches, but he managed to dodge so that it seems that the itching is all it does. A tiny creature on a shelf above Brother Jaume's head looks down at him. Meanwhile, at his feet, another of these things comes from the bottom shelf and manages to bite the monk in his calf (1 NL) and is now attached.

    Begin Round One ...

    R1T21: With a slight giggle, Björn tugs at something in his sleeve and then, seemingly subconsciously, points at the wee beastie attached to Jaume and mutters something under his breath. His minor magic seems to have no effect, though.

    R1T19: Javert flaps his wings in readiness.

    "It's a pickled punk - an undead. That's why the northman's daze cantrip failed. The fluid on it can cause a nasty rash, and its death throes can sicken you!"

    Javert is delaying.

    R1T18: The creature on the shelf picks up another jar with some hideous thing in it and throws it at Brother Jaume. The glass only does 1 NL when it hits him and breaks, but the liquid gets all over the monk. The cleric immediately breaks out in a terrible rash all over, suffering -2 DEX and -2 CHA.

    R1T17: Haru, the sound of shattering glass and spellcasting, and an obvious battle underway. What do you do?

    R1T17: Haru heads into the room while drawing his nunchaku, being mindful of the trail of fluid on the ground as he goes.

    The creature you see is a pickled punk, a deformed, humanoid fetus raised by necromancers and stored in embalming jars. It is a type of undead (with all that entails), size Tiny. The water in a pickled punk's jar is an extreme irritant, and this same fluid runs through the punk as well.

    R1T14: Jean, what do you do? Javert is currently delaying. Because of positioning, other than knowing these things are really small (and what Javert said), you don't see the punks. The name sounds familiar, and you know it is undead, but you don't know anything more about them.

    R1T14: "The creatures are already dead; twisted abominations spurned by everything natural. End them." Jean steps into the room with his scimitar drawn, taking a moment to cast his mind back to the strange geometries of music as it whispers out of its sheathe.

    R1T13: Javert flies in and lands and pokes a hole in the tiny calf of the punk on Brother Jaume's leg with a crit for 4. If it was a living opponent, that could have been a more grievous wound.

    R1T11: "A punk's hide is rubbery-tough!" calls Gaye as she goes into the room. Taking a cue from the library fight, she hops up onto the table deftly as she crosses over. "It turns aside blades, so you want to crush and batter the tissue."

    R1T8: Brother Jaume, everything said so far about the punk makes sense, and you know them to be undead. You didn't know about smushing them, though (not that this is an issue for you). You have one of these things attached to your calf right now, and yet it is extremely agile on the back of your leg, totally unhindered by being attached to you. What do you do?

    R1T8: Erastil’s hairy ball sack! That foul stuff itches! Takes this you fiends!” roars the enraged cleric/monk. A burst of golden radiance bursts forth from BJ as he clasps the bronze antlered and bow icon that is his cloak clasp. Neither of the punks are able or ready to withstand the glow as they both take 6 PE.

    R1T7: Dorn moves forward and squeezes into the section just to the SE of Brother Jaume. He then - yea, verily, verily - smashes the punk in the top of its deformed melon and the entire thing explodes in a shower of its internal fluids mixed with the liquid in which it had been preserved, discorporating into a fleshy sludge.

    Brother Jaume vomits everywhere, disgusted by the ordeal (nauseated).

    End Round One, Begin Round 2 ...
