Beside her, the goblin archer chortled and let loose an arrow at the minstrel, who had left himself an easy target, but the shot missed, streaking by just inches from Brego's left ear. The pyro to the bard's south took the arrow shot as a signal to attack and stepped up, gleefully swinging his torch at Brego and catching him on an exposed part of his arm with a searing burn.
Saitylvaness also received a torch attack from the goblin to her back right side as she worked over another of the little marauders with her rapier, but the attack was wildly off course and missed her cleanly. The goblin she had just stabbed with her blade was not so amused as his companions anymore, squealing in pain as the sharp point passed through his shoulder. Still standing, the wounded goblin slashed at the graceful elf with his dogslicer, but missed horribly. Upon seeing this, he tried to turn and run, but his attempt at retreat was met with an opportunistic attack from Sai, which struck home easily, dropping the fleeing goblin in a pool of its own blood.
The goblin farthest north stepped onto the stairs leading to the stage and swung his jagged blade at one of the helpess, young acolytes, fortunately missing the boy. Father Zantus, who was also unarmed, reached out desperately trying to disarm the goblin, but was sliced by the little monster's jagged blade as a result. The priest was now bleeding badly from a gaping wound to his midsection.
