    Vasily turns, making eye contact with the others. He waits only seconds before going to kick the door open, casting as he does so.

    not waiting long enough for them to catch completely up, but enough for them to enter the hallway and be able to see him.

    Strength (d20+4)[9] or Athletics +7?

    The door isn't locked, and flies open when you kick it. Almost immediately after, a spear attached to several pieces of rope comes swinging down at your chest. Dex Save: (1d20+5)[25]. You sidestep out of the way and stride forward, leaving the spear hanging in the doorway.

    You see before you two figures with white hair and red eyes, skin stretched tight over prominent bones. They hold curved swords in their hands, and they look at you with hunger. Behind them are eight other shambling corpses, dressed in rags of once fine clothes . The room is about fifty feet across of unworked stone, but the enemies in front of you are only about twenty feet away. There's another door on the far wall.

    Vasily, you're up first. What do you do?

    Veeta and Initari, you are also up, but about sixty feet behind Vasily and Xahria.

    Vasily raises his sword high with a shout of "Bahamut damn you!" and his shield flares with radiant power.

    I've never seen the point of Turn Undead until now, with 8 undead mooks supporting the two bigger guys...

    DC 15

    Turn the Unholy: As an action, you can make any fiend or undead, provided that it's within 30 feet and that can see or hear you, make a Wisdom saving throw. If the creature fails its saving throw, it is turned for 1 minute or until it takes damage. A turned creature must spend its turns trying to move as far away from you as it can, and it can't willingly move to a space within 30 feet of you. It also can't take reactions. For its action, it can use only the Dash action or try to escape from an effect that prevents it from moving. If there's nowhere to move, the creature can use the Dodge action.

    Almost everything turns away from the holy light that blazes forth from the shield. One of the two creatures with a sword manages to shield his eyes and step forth, and one of the shambling corpses seemed so blocked by the others that it was unaffected. Everything else seems to be terrified of your prescience.

    Initari runs forward to get nearer to the battle before pointing at the creature shielding its eyes. Then she sent Wiggles forward to tap Vasily and then get out as she cast Heroism at second level on herself and Vasily.

    Veeta summons an intangible lightning bolt of pure force and slams it down into the lead creature with enough force to stagger him as he moves forward, shaking off Veeta's second spell as he moves, and reaches toward Vasily with an undead hand. It snakes past your shield and touches your face, and you feel an icy chill go through your body, but the holy blessing helps you shrug off the worst of the effects. [Take 8 damage]

    Attack: (1d20+4)[20]
    Damage: (1d6+2)[8]
    Con Save: (1d20+6)[10]

    Then, while the old knight is still recovering from the last blow, it takes its sword in two hands and swings at Vasily, who still staggered, trusts his armor as the blow dings off harmlessly.

    Attack: (1d20+4)[12]
    Damage: (1d10+2)[7]

    The other dangerous looking creature lets out a horrific shriek and turns to run, flying across the room and opening the door on the far side before darting through it. Most of the horde of smaller creatures follows more slowly, aside from one that shambles up to Vasily.

    Xahria takes a swipe at the shambling creature that just stepped up to Vasily, but it twists, almost accidentally, at the last second, and she's just barely able to redirect her attack in time, and carves a chunk of it's flesh right off. "Over here!" She yells.
    Attack: (1d20+5)[7]
    Damage: (1d8+5)[6]

    The party is up, what do you do?

    The creature's attack hit and pain flares, but most of the fire is soothed by the healing energies of the spell protecting him. He whispers a silent prayer of thanks for Initari.

    Vasily sets to work with his blade, striking out at the undamaged enemy and letting loose with what must be a blast with Bahamut's own fire.

    Having a little trouble understanding which enemies everyone has attacked so far. My intent is to go after the biggest sack of hit points with this attack.

    Divine Smite on the first one to hit at level 2 (gets extra d8 for undead)
    (4d8)[17]

    Attack 1: (d20+7)[26] + (d4)[1]
    Damage: (d8+7)[14]

    If that Divine Smites and destroys it, then redirect second attack at the injured one fighting Xahria.

    Attack 2: (d20+7)[11] + (d4)[3]
    Damage: (d8+7)[14]

    Vasily's sword shines with holy light, and with two quick blows he removes the head from the undead creature that damaged him.

    Initari called Wiggles back to perch on her shoulder, then moved forward to stand directly to Vasily's left. She pointed to the nearest enemy and spoke out a scathing remark. But it wasn't a particularly important enemy, so she didn't feel the need to come up with anything original.
