Verim stares at the Bandit Captain as he tries to retreat, he steadies himself and focuses his energy, his light in his heart and his veins go a faint purple colour and he crackles the energy between his fingertips. He moves to O9
"You get get him, we'll deal with the leftovers."(Bardic Inspiration for Tobias, 1d6 can added to an attack roll, ability check or saving throw after seeing the roll but before knowing the outcome) El glowers at the remaining Bandit and take a few quick step before bounding off the nearby stalagmite and bringing a heavy overhead strike down on ruffian.
Acrobatics (only for effect so not sure if I need this): 6
Cyndral, ashamed and furious, ducks in close to the pillar of stone and runs around the back side, hoping to cut off the leader's escape. As he rounds the corner and sees the enemy again, he lunges once more with his sword, knowing the other foe was too far to reach and not wanting to hurl acid so close to El.
El Brings his sword down on the surprised bandit, managing to plunge the blade into his side from an upwards angle. Verim gets into a position to see where the captain had ran to and begins to prepare his purple energy as he runs. He fires of the spell towards the Captain, it hits him in the back just as Cyndral rounds the corner with his blade drawn. Cyndral spots a section on the captains back that isn’t very well protected and pushes the blade right between his shoulder blades. The captain then falls to his knees, bleeding out.
Not caring about the inviting strike he is allowing, Gnarls dives through the legs of Bandit 1, and chases after the Captain to O8 with a frenetic growl. Reaching him, Gnarls attempts to make both of his blades meet in the middle of the Captain's stomach.
Gnarls and Tobias both hit the lone bandit at the same time. In an absolute blood bath, the bandit is struck down. Verim and Cyndral both hear some shouts coming from the two narrow passages that fork off to the left and right.
El wipes off their sword and picks up their handaxes. "Best get the hell out of here unless we want to fight whoever's on their way, my guess is friends of these bandits or Ilvara's soldiers and I for one, don't want a rematch with either." El looks down at the bandit by their feet, "Though... it wouldn't hurt to look for supplies on these guys." They do a quick search of as many of the bandits' bodies as they can and jog down the tunnel they came from to fetch the rest of the group.
El beginS looking over the 4 corpses on the ground, cautious of the shouts from the passages they make sure to be quick. All of the standard bandits have a scimitar and light crossbow, the Bandit Captain has a scimitar and a dagger with a wooden handle. There seems to be markings on the handle. 14 small lines, marked out in some sort of counting system. Tucked away under the cloak of the first bandit to have been killed is a small purple book. El quickly makes their way to the passage just as an out of breath Eldeth runs in with her sword drawn “Argh!!!!” She shouts and then stops in her tracks “I thought there was trouble, we spoke about who should come and I ran as quickly as I could. You certainly made fast work of these”
Verim grasps his chest, looks down at his beating heart which is pulsating and flittering with the strange light, he smiles quickly and kisses his amulet, as he does so the light turns bright white, deep in the confines of his mind he whispers.
“Co im pe hwenm oo eeck fla Mystra”
Verim gestures to the party to come to the passage he is standing outside of. He beckons to move quickly but stands to allow those to pass, he stands against the wall and pulls a small jar or water readying for the worst.
“Come me must leave before they bring reinforcements, I can’t sense anything down here but those strong lead the charge I’ll protect the back.”
"He may have been running for help,"Tobias says to the group using the telepathic spores. "Good timing, Eldeth. Sounds like there may be more up ahead. Who wants to check it out with me?"He makes his way cautiously up the northern passage once a few of the others begin to follow.
Shishakli drops his hand crossbow... it's too small for him... quickly grabs one of the light crossbows that was dropped by a bandit, and starts to inspect it, crouching low against the cave wall. He says "If there are more, it would be best to set an ambush. Though to do so we may need bait. Who will attempt to lure them out?"
If someone goes ahead he will also attempt to hide amongst the rocks to get a better shot at whomever approaches. 17
The cave goes silent for a moment. “You’ve, you’ve taken care of Gorovar?” Some shuffling can be heard from within. “We’ll come out now if you swear that we can walk afterwards” you hear more movement as 3 men and 2 women make their way down the northern passage towards you, all of them are wearing a similar, blackened leather armour, they’ve all taken their small bandanas from their faces.
