"AND THAT'S HOW ITS DONE PEOPLE!" Mike says as he trails off into heavy breathing. It seems the display has tired him some.
Feeling the blood in the air and the death of the rat John lets out a loud laugh as he swings at the rat in front of him again with earth and death. The rat evades the poor attack that John attempts.
"Damn it, not another one!" ZhuGuan hisses as he sees Malkyr fall. "No dying today!"
The half-elf disappears around the post and attempts to slice into one the rats between Vicky and Malkyr. Guan kills the rat with his attack. Allyria frowns as Malkyr drops in a bloody heap. She hadn't known him long, but some part of her new racial makeup is protective of other drow. Unfortunately, the rats, like so much else in this dungeon, seem resistant to her magic. She fires another bolt of chaos to one of them but it sails harmlessly over his head, missing entirely.
Feeling exposed and a little grossed out from the rat she already killed, she backs up to the far corner of the room, keeping her back to the wall to avoid getting surrounded and to give her a clear view to line up her next attack. Once in position, she feels much more confident and sends another blast of chaotic energy out. This one hits the rat square in the center of its body, bursting a fist sized hole through it and killing it instantly. The bolt then bounces off and strikes another rat, hurting it quite a bit, despite its resistance. Allyria's spell also backsplashes into a gossamer, rippling dome of energy that coats her and her allies.
Vicky dashes up to Malkyr, releasing a burst of primal force. It invigorates both herself and the bloody drow. "Hang in there, we're almost done," she tries to brighten his spirit, "... just try not to repeat that stunt."
Jared finally leaves the protection that Vicky has been offering and trots off towards the back wall, he then turns and sends a stream of shadow at a rat. The shadows swirl around the rat, forming into a snarling beast that rips in to the rodent.
"I need some vitamin water..." as Mike lashes out with another attack at the nearest rat, but he misses because of his exhaustion.
Malklyr stands up and cautiously moves away from the rat as he regains his bearings. The last two remaining rats continue to fight for their lives against the intruders. One of them attacks Vicky and the other attacks John. Both of them sink
Vicky took 9 damage; John took 13 damage
their teeth into their targets, though only John seems to be spurting blood like a fountain.
Jared trots forward resuming his position behind Vicky. As he reaches her, the dark shadows swirling around him lash out in the direction of the rat, again forming into a snarling beast that rips into the wounded rodent.
Allyria fires another bolt of chaos magic towards the surviving rats. The bolt barely hits one of the rats and kills it before gaining in momentum. It bounces towards the other rat, blasting into it head one and sending it reeling through the air to collapse on its back between two of her allies. But the bolt is not finished by any means, it turns in mid-air once more, crashing into Jared, hurting the small warlock before ricocheting off of him into ZhuGuan. The bolt then careens from the half-elf directly back to Allyria, hitting her with the force of a truck and sending her flying through the air to land in a crumpled heap in the corner of the room.
