Jack takes up a position next to Vicky at the doorway. The kenku woman peers in through the door. Large portions of the floor of this room are strewn with rubble. The numerous cracks in the walls do not suggest much safety. Rows of dark wooden bunk beds, most of them damaged by the rubble, give some clue what this room was used for. In the south eastern corner of the room, it looks like someone has taken the time to build up a wall of the rubble about three feet high.
Looking to her left reveals an interesting sight indeed. A strange
cat-like creature is standing in the dark room. It's eyes adjust to the light brought forward by Vicky. She can see a small man-reptile standing behind the beast with a spear in his hand. Based on what she has learned and knows, it is certainly a
Seemingly prepared for the adventuring group's arrival, the cat-like beastie rears back it's head and releases a terrible howl. It looks as if the skin of it's face pulls back slightly as it howls - showing muscle and bone underneath. John watches as a wave of thunderous sound washes over the group. Only Jared seems unaffected by the blast that John was out of the range of. The others all seem dazed and

hurt by the strange sound. Then the krenshar does something a little unexpected. It retreats. It rushes off behind a large pile of debris to the left. It is quickly followed by the spear-wielding kobold.
There are no noticeable exits from this room, so the strange duo seem to have nowhere to go.
"Wait up!" hollers Jared worried that there might be more to Guan running off other than just charging into a battle. Shadows begin to swirl around him as he moves into the room.
Jared aims his rod at the somewhat hidden krenshar. A cloud of freezing shadow wraps around the animal, turning into a snarling beast that tears into it. The swirling shape continues to circle the krenshar waiting for it to move. Then Jared hears something coming from behind him, and the gravity of ZhuGuan's thoughts take form in an ambush.
Iffeiast!" Shouts a hissing, high-pitched voice from behind the rock wall in the south east section of the room. "
Draconic:Fight with the same spirit that Borryn would have! Kill the intruders! Kill the orc allies!

Whoever or whatever it is, is keeping itself fairly hidden. Suddenly, a swirling ball a chaotic flame appears in the doorway. The flaming sphere is roughly the size of a man, making it difficult to get past. Worse, the heat is terrible up close. It lashes out at Jared

striking the halfling with a tendril of solid flame.
"Gah!!" he huffs in pain. "Did anyone else catch what he said?"
Before anyone else can even respond to Jared, three
figures emerge at the top of the rock pile. They have picks strapped to their backs, but they start hurling rocks at Guan Yu. The first one up, stubs his toe on the debris causing him to miss his shot. The pain continues for the little creature, making movement a little more painful than it should be. The other two both manage to

pelt ZhuGuan Yu with rocks despite the position he has taken up next to the bunk beds.
Guan is not feeling very good, and he knows that he and Jared are basically cut off from the others thanks to the large flaming ball. It looks like the kobolds are planning on killing the two of them before dealing with the others based on their attack pattern. Then he notices another pet of the kobolds making it's way towards him and Jared. It is an oddly colored
lizard with a splotch of blue scales here and there. It couldn't be more than a foot long, but it is moving very aggressively towards the two of them.
Jack runs into the room, taking a hit from the ball of fire. The dragonborn bursts through the ball of flame to the other side, a giant snarl on his face as he raises his blade.
Draconic:ALL YOU CAN SETTLE THE HELL DOWN. I swear to Deep Sashelas that I will KICK ALL YOUR ASSES if you take another step. I will personally see you all to the abyss if you take another step. We're not allies of the orcs. So back the hell down and let's talk like civil damn people.
