Zogar sees that the popping creates a sort of ripple in the air, like a heat wave almost. You can see something past the pop but can't make out anything big before it dissapears. You see some humanoid figures that could possibly be cultists but there is enough of the enemies that you can't see much. Your group starts to approach the allied soldiers and a Sergeant Alfrost, a short water genasi approaches you. "Hello friends, I recommend you try to stay at the back of this. These things are very tricky and may try to distract us, keep your weapons high and eyes sharp." He says as he goes back to a group of his troops and starts giving orders as a few mages begin to bring up the ground in a sort of defensive position and cover. What would like to do now, the enemies are about 10 minutes away now
"Sergeant, General Listrife has tasked us with finding the nature of the cult launching these attacks. If you and your men can possibly find a way to capture one or more of those humanoids, it could go a long way toward winning this conflict. Anything you can do would be appreciated by command."
Zogar encourages our group to stay out of the main conflict, but to specifically look for an opportunity to capture one of the humanoids.
Vaunea you see some small pops with groups of troops but Alfrosts troops are already locked on and watching them, they seem very used to this sort of thing. "We will attempt to but It shall very much be a secondary goal, our job here is to keep the citizens of this land safe but we will try to." Alfrost then goes to some other high ranking looking people and talks to them. The enemies are about to arrive you have about 5 mins to prepare anything before they arrive. (Yall just wanna go, just wanted if someone wanted to prep spells or anything if your ready just roll init)
Gabriel draws his greatsword and moves to the front of the group "It's our job to protect our people from filth like these bastards. If they want to die, let them die." he says preparing for the assault.

(Note for transparency sake, for things like this where its a bigger battle ill split up enemies into groups and then have them move as a group and also do some rolls like for npc's that you arent specifically fighting ill just roll those on my own as to not clutter up the thing and give a summary of what the npc's are doing at the round top)
Seargant Alfrost: 21
Vaunea: 16 / Drow elf : 16
Skeleton Group: 15
Minotaur Skeleton: 14
Zombie Group: 12 / Smolder: 12
Soldier Group: 10
Zogar: 9/ Group of 4 Cultists
Seargant Alfrost says some orders to his troops as he steps up to meet The drow himself looks very familiar, then just at the faint edge of your memory you can remeber him as being talked of as Ishmir but tahts all you can remeber. There is almost a hatred between the two as they trade and knock back each others blows. Vaunea you see the drow begin to go at seargant alfrost and a group of skeletons on your at the front of the enemy forces with a minotaur skeleton at the front, a group of 4 humanoid cultists at the side, some casting magic, some readying weapons and zombies attacking at the flank of soldiers opposite to you, what would you like to do. (Anyone can post their stuff then ill summarize combat at the end of the round)
Zogar realizes that his group isn't going to be able to sit back on this one. He casts Bless on Vaunea, Gabriel and himself. He's going to position himself behind the line, still mounted so he can move quickly where needed.
Vaunea was more preparing himself to fight if need be. Vuanea says we need but one of these cultists alive guys remember that do not kill them all. He thanks Zogar for the blessing blessings before also going into his Rage. 1 Blessing added to the attack roll. In his rage will attack the drow elf with his Great-Axe To hit:27 Damage:8 Crit Damage:11
Vaunea you charge at the drow and knock him back a little bit but he goes back to attacking now both you and Seargant Alfrost. Nico throws a dart at one of the dwarfs and he knocks it out of the air with his hand as it goes towards him, the group of cultists turn towards you guys and start to charge. Gabriel you run in swinging at all of the skeletons and swipe through its head making it explode into tiny pieces Or'vill takes a shot at the minotaur but it just bounces of its hide as it charges into the group of soldiers as they push it back with their shields. Then the soldiers leap up and charge, as a volley of arrows comes from the back killing two zombies and 4 soldiers grouping up on the Minotaur and attacking it as the rest go to fight the skeletons. Smolder your crossbow bolt also bounces off of the thick bone of the Minotaur skeleton as it roars getting more and more agitated. 1 of the cultists takes a shot at Nico being as he is the one that threw a dart at them. Nico easily dodges the arrow and smiles back at the elf as he puts away his bow and takes out a longsword and joins the rest of his group charging at you. The 4 cultists are now charging at your group, what would you like to do.
