Johan's first arrow misses his target, but the second sinks into its stomach with a squishy thunk.
The fastest ghoul lunges at Garn and bites down on his shoulder. Garn cries out in pain but goes silent and falls limp, paralyzed. Ezryn wards off the creatures as he drags the helpless wizard into the cabin. "I'll keep him safe," Ezryn says, sweating and breathing heavily, looking quite pale from his own wound. "You and the newcomers can deal with this, we are too winded to continue." He closes the cabin door behind him.
Then Oran takes a tremendous leap off the deck of the warship and lands heavily and firmly on the deck of the smaller ship.
Just then, a streak of flame shoots from Emmet's hands, slamming into one of the monsters on the poop deck, blasting it apart to flaming pieces that smolder on the deck.
The monster that Johan wounded snarls in rage and runs for the warrior, lunging with sharp yellow fangs; but the attack clangs harmlessly off of Johan's mithral armor.
Belgin's prayer rings true and everyone feels that their ranged attacks are now better
The remaining monster on the poop deck leaps off and rushes at Oran, sinking its jagged teeth
into his shoulder. He feels a strange sensation coursing through his body, a warm numbness, but he is able to shake it off.
The last creature runs up to Johan as well, but he sees it coming and is easily able to dodge its clumsy blow.
