The arrow flies between tree trunks, hitting a few leaves on the way, but sticks violently into the side of the figure. It...? He lets out an audible groan as his hand goes to put pressure on the wound.
A few trees over, the second figure darts out and starts to move around to the group's left. It stops behind a tree, but both are now partially in view.
Burik strides forwards (full move), chanting a short incantation as he does so. A bell can be faintly heard by all but the target, to whom it is significantly louder. ( Toll the Dead , WIS saving throw DC 13)
Rigg runs at his full potential, dodging between trees and bush. Fairly nimble still for an older man. He ends behind a larger tree and places it between him and the archer, peeking around the corner to keep him in sight.
As Rigg gets closer, he notices two more figures emerge from behind the archer. They seemed to have come from the direction that the party was heading while tracking Breni. These two men are carrying scimitars, wearing dark clothing, and sporting long, dark hair and beards.
Lucina immediately sends another arrow towards the other figure within her sight, her eyes narrow slightly as she glares at the figure she has her sights on. After shooting the arrow, she moves forward drawing her rapier to get closer to her target.
Lucina turns to duck behind a tree as the bolt flies through the air. It catches her in the shoulder, though, and she puts her back to the trunk of the tree to wait for her companions to join the fray.
The two bandits with scimitars have reached their injured ally now. They both focus on Rigg and charge through the woods swinging their blades...
Attack: 17 Damage: 2
Attack: 8 Damage: 2
Rigg impressively dodges the first attack, and swings his shield up to catch the second blade. Not bad for an old man.
Burik, you're up. You're 30 feet from Rigg and the two scimitar-wielding bandits, and 50 feet from the archer.
Both bandits stop as they hear the bells loudly tolling...the first looks a little more steady, and he grunts as he focuses and stands up straight. The second drops to his knees and grabs his head as the necrotic energy sets in. He takes 8 damage.
Rigg, you're up. Two bandits right next to you, archer 20 feet away.
