Whipping her wand out of her pocket, Nyx called to her comrades,

 "Aim for the warlock, maybe if we take him out the rest will crumble!"

"Choir boy?" Ben growled, beginning to move forward. "I've had more than enough of the orthodoxy looking down on me. Karuma brings judgement, and today he sends me!"

Aela quickly scanned the battlefield, Looking for anything she could use as cover, while her hands instinctually moved to retrieve her bow and notch an arrow, ready to feather the bastard who had taken Hlaine.

"At least you'll provide me entertainment before you die!" The Dragonborn cackled, swinging the staff forward, focusing his power into the instrument. The black magic screamed out, passing by the lumbering hulks directly at the Acolyte. Ben was lifted off his feat backwards into the door frame of the Inn. He was winded, and coughed up blood, but kept a firm grip on his mace. He grinned, with his symbol of Karuma held aloft and using the pain to help focus his own divine will upon the undead. Unseen by all but felt by the cadavers, Karuma swept a hand through the town that significantly weakened the Warlocks' hold. Despite the Warlock's forcing, the hulks and corpses failed to advance upon the outnumbered party. The Warlock scowled at the bloodied Cleric as the fool regained his balance of stepped forward to stand and fight.

The display of power shook Nyx of her focus, sending her own blast of magic wide from her intended target. Her pinkie finger became alight with magical fire, and she new it was a small taste of punishment for misusing the power she was giving.

Aela had managed to dive back through the doorway and was weighing her options. Understanding her allies instructions, she takes aim at the Warlock. The arrow sang across the street, and before the first arrow met it mark, she had already knocked and loosed a second. Both arrows caught the Warlock by surprise, sinking into his shoulder and eliciting a loud hiss of pain and indignation.

Raven Joined the volley, loosing an arrow from his elevated position into the rotting hide of a hulk, striking cleanly into its sternum. The injury though minor considering the creatures' size, caused it to take a step back, likely aided by Karuma's will.



"Don't just stand there you putrid pansies, get them!" The Dragonborn shouted at the cadavers. With a slam, the staff glowed brightly with a sickly green energy, and the corpses began to lumber forward towards the party. While he was distracted, Nyx squared up her own Eldritch Blast shot, blindsiding the Warlock, sending him tumbling into the dying plant beds behind him.

Aela followed up her previous marks-elf-ship, and fired another volley as the Warlock tumbled back. The arrows struck true, embedding through the robes and into the Dragonborn's hide. Raven worked to weaken the Hulk he'd already wounded previously, his own volley joining the first and biting into the rotting mass' hide.

Ben carried on forward, realising the Warlock was ouch of reach, so decided to take on the groups of Zombies that were to his left. Symbol still in hand, he pushed through the pain and turned it into focus for his magic, a cadaver bursting into flame at the rear of the group. Using his momentum of movement, he swings his mace wide, slamming it into the closest corpse, splattering necrotic juices across the ground and crumpling the body before him, leaving two standing.



"HA HA HA! You're all so fun!" The Dragonborn cackled lifting himself to his feet. He glanced the distances, and knew his target was weakened, and drew strength into the staff, focusing to unleash in a thunderous boom across the street. Ben was just lifting his mace to feel another Zombie as the full force of Eldritch energy slammed him several feet to the ground as Nyx's feet. His Mace somehow was propelled into a Zombies face, decapitating the undead.

Nyx was too far back to counter-blast the Warlock, so instead blasted the nearest hulk. It wasn't enough to kill it, but it was knocked back and onto a smaller zombie. Aela had much better range with her bow, filling the air with new whistles as arrows flights arc'd into the Warlock's torso. Raven doubled his volley, wounding his target further, but still not enough to kill it.

A Wall of decaying flesh between himself and a weakened band of do-gooders, the Warlock moved to cover himself with the over watered foliage. He had to get very close to the ground, and break the shafts of a number of arrows that still dug into his flesh, but a moments discomfort and indignation should be enough to force the fools to focus on the meat shield. The Corpses lumbered forward, the smaller ones dropping bits of flesh with each step. One managed to get close enough to Ben and Nyx, ignoring the prone Cleric and swatting at the Gnome, missing impressively.

Nyx had quickly knelt behind Ben, mind scrambling to work out how to help. She had no medical experience, but she knew eldritch magic. She presses her hand on the Cleric's back, willing the magic that was lingering and effectively poisoning his being, it took effort, but she managed to drag a portion of the Dragonborn's magic out, and began to refocus it into her own wand. Ben gasped as sharp pain borught him back to conciousness, and he quickly decided to get behind Nyx.

Aela bolt from the doorway, leveling her bow at the undead that had swung at Nyx, the arrow triking hard into the zombie, breaking enough of the body to force the reanimation magic to fail, making it flump to ground from the remaining force. She was out in the open with a pair of hulks in front, but put trust in her allies to do there part to thin numbers.

Raven softly but quickly leaped from his elavated position to stand between Ben and Nyx and the lesser wounded Hulk, his own bow ready and loosed. The closer ranged caused it to slam into the hulk, causing an involuntary groan from the mass.

Working himself to his feat, Ben brings aloft his Holy Symbol, directing it at the closest Hulk, but his focus was blury making barely singed by the attempt.



"Bloody Clerics" the Warlock muttered its position, contemplating if his danse macabre was actually enough. The Hulks lumbered forward, finally able to engage the archers. The Hulk that had more arrows struck into it had charged towards Ael's exposed position, swinging a fleshy mulch fist with its momentum. Despite her speed, the maggot ridden mass connects, knocking Aela into the wall behind her. The other with the remains of a zombie dangling of its back swing at Raven, slamming into his chest, and knocking him back a few feet painfully. The smaller zombies continued to lumber behind the massive hulks.

As Raven fell back from the strike, Nyx was ready with Wand raised, aimed at the hulk. the rechanneled magic was difficult to control, but striek home it did, pushing the Hulk away from herself and her allies. She gasps, realising she had been holding her breath for as long as she had held the magic for an opportunity to cast.

Aela caught her breath quickly, point blank aiming at the hulk resembling a pin cushion. The arrow barely left her bow before embedding itself in the hulks' face, causing a momentary stagger back giving her precious breathing room enough to see the shambling zombies behind. Raven thought he'd loosed his arrow to wide, but manage to clip a seemingly structurally important mound of flesh on the hulk.

Ben continued to hold aloft his symbol, will burning fiercely enough to envelope the Hulk in radiant fire. The fight wasn't over yet, but it was clear what held the monsters together was starting to wane. The real trouble would be if the Warlock rejoined the fight.



"Rotten Fleshbags, all of them. Especially those people." The Warlock snarled. He kept to his position, and willed the zombies and hulks to press the attack, hoping it would be enough to finish off the party. The arrow filled hulk swings again at Aela, but she is ready, deftly avoiding the swing. Raven however was not so agile, taking another forceful slam to the body.

The monster was barely held together as Nyx ripped it apart with her Eldritch Blast. The Hulk was splattered, sending meaty and boney chunks into the Zombies behind it. This was enough to scatter the arisen bodies with no further effort.

Aela lept away from the remaining Hulk, as her feet planted onto the ground, her bow was raised and the arrow loosed, becoming part of the increasing unstable looking hulk, it seemed ready to collapse under its own weight. Cawing with pain, Raven quickly retargeted his own shot at the remaining hulk, managing to pull the bow back just enough to break the reanimation magic of the behemoth abomination. Itwas already falling apart as it collapsed backwards into the remaining zombies that had lumbered too close.



"Bugger." The Warlock simply stated. Seeing his small undead troupe festering unmoving on the ground.

Nyx took a deep breath and surveyed the scene. She know that the Dragonborn was hiding in the plants up ahead and turned to Raven,
 "Care to flush him out?"

She pulled herself up to her full height, adjusted the grip on her wand and waited for the other warlock to make the wrong move.

"I think I will stay here, if that's ok" Ben groaned, stumbling over to Raven. "Here." He touched his hand to Raven's back and focused."Karuma be with you," he said, casting Guidance, before lying on the ground and concentrating on maintaining the spell.



Reference note:
Guidance lasts for one minute (or about 6 rounds), and allows Raven to add 1d4 to an ability check of her choice during that time. Assuming that I ccan maintain concentration, that is.

Aela turned to Raven as the battle settled, having swiftly turned in their favour. She wore an uncharacteristically stern expression on her youthful and slight Elvish face. "I'm coming with you." She announced, before dashing out, bow in hand. She stayed her hand as she did not wish to risk killing their only lead.

His minions and muscle defeated, the powerful Warlock had one option to take. Rising to his full height, taking his staff in both hands, and steadying his breathe... He turned an started to run down the road he had arrived from.

Nyx, Raven and Aela all charged forward in pursuit, the Gnome struggling to keep up while Raven had taken to the air and Aela rapidly charging forward. With the Dragonborn attempting to Retreat, it would be difficult for Nyx to get close enough for her magic to work.

Ben held back, putting focus in his Guidance spell upon Raven.



The Warlock dared not look back as he continued to run. He cursed his lack of athleticism.

Nyx continued to pursue, unwittingly parroting the same self-curses her target was muttering. Aela was steadily closing the gap.

Raven Held his position and level a shot. Even in the moment of pursuit, and the fading light, his arrow flew true and punctured the Warlock's light armour. Indignantly, the Dragonborn stumbled and ultimately landed face first into the dirt road.



Cautiously, Aela, Raven and Nyx approached the bleeding Dragonborn. With his clawed hand he was trying to drag himself forward, while the other seemed to desperately trying to use the staff for one last blast.

Quickly sheathing her weapons, Aela knocks the staff away, and pins the Warlock down onto his front, being careful to limit the freedom his clawed hand had. Raven circled around in front and kept a fresh arrow trained on the Warlock, draw string creaking with stored power. Nyx eventually caught up, and took a close but still threatening position in front of the Warlock.

"I'm sure you thought you had us, but look where you are now." Nyx couldn't help but verbally rib the prone fellow Warlock. It seemed to be some sort of nail in the coffin, as the Dragonborn fell unconscious, a fact confirmed tentatively by Aela slowly releasing her grip to check his pulse.

Ben had slowly walked up, strain and effort clear on his features and raged robes. "Well what do we do now?"

Almost as if the world around them had been frozen, sound and smell began to drift towards the party. Smoke, Alarm bells, shouts of panic and authority clashing. Those with a spare though glanced towards the tavern, windows further back showing a small fire had become loose in the kitchen, and judging by the black smoke coming from a number of houses a widespread occurrence on this particular day. Already villagers who were able were running back and forth the roads with buckets of water with the odd magic user spotted trying to cast simple spells like prestidigitation to snuff out smaller fires.

It seemed that the party was largely forgotten in the moment and the town was alive with activity.

"Bind his hands so he can't cast anything, wands and staves help to focus power but he could blast us with a wave of his hands." Nyx instructed her larger companions.

 "We should probably get him back to the tavern, or at least somewhere indoors where he'd find it harder to escape. Ben's not going to die on us but he could use a kip, and has anyone seen Hlaine?"

Ben glanced around blearily, before deciding that he wasn't going to be much use with searching. "I'm going to head back to the inn now. I'll let someone know you've caught the one responsible then I'll try and get some rest. Wake me if the building burns down."

"Good idea, I've got some rope in my pack" Aela replied to the gnome. She wasn't the best, but after a few nicks and cuts from the guantlet the warlock was wearing, she ended up with a decent binding knot to keep him from using gestures to control magic. "Should be gag him as well? I can't remember how common spells that just use the voice are."

Ben had gotten to the door of the Inn, a small crowd having formed of the patrons. In his bleary state, he walked right past everyone to try to re-enter the building, only to be stopped by Ursha's hand forcibly pushing him back out.

"Wha', you playing a' Cleric?" She had raised her voice to cut through the Clerics obvious dishevelment. "'he bloody sleep spell made 'he cooks drop down mid service, and the kitchen nearly went up in smoke. You and your friends would likely be be''er off asking 'he local clergy to lodge you for 'he nigh'."

"No one was hurt were they?" Ben's pain numbing a little knowing others could be hurt.

"Nah, we go' lucky. I heard your Elf lass rallied 'he other local elves, and 'hey've been 'he ones leading 'he sweep around 'own 'o make sure no one is in an unsafe or compromising position."

His attempt at going to bed thus thwarted, Ben turned and started to head back to where he'd last seen the others. Exhausted as he was, he wasn't happy with the idea of staying with the clergy. His past with them wasn't the friendliest, and anyway, that Warlock may have had a connection with the temple. He'd risk it if he had too, but he hoped could find somewhere else to rest.

"A gag would be a great idea, I don't personally have any vocal onlys but I know of a few and I don't want him casting any of them. To top it all off he's a Dragonborn so he could probably spit fire or acid at us."

Nyx pondered for a moment,

"This does mean it might not be too easy to question him though. I'll investigate the temple to see whether it'll do, you two [Aela and Raven] stay with him and make sure he doesn't leave or die or something".

And with that she set off in the direction of the temple, wand at ease in her hand just in case. She glanced over at Ben to see whether he wanted to join her or just sit down with the others for a moment.
