    ((Don't forget; e5 for defense... but a natural 6 means defense is a success.))



    You both dodge the attacks, unlike any of the men. The three you spoke to are muddied and likely bloodied, but they pick themselves up and manage to form a wall next to Sigrlinn.

    "Ice, you say?" says the man with the mace.

    "Do your magic while we're still here to protect you," says the shield-fighter.

    The swordsman says nothing. He just attacks.
    HAMster:2X3 → 3( (6x2, 4→ 3 successes against 3) )#sword guy
    HAMster:1X3 → 0( (1→ 0 successes against 3) )#combo
    He lands a solid blow on the first attack, splitting a bark mask with a crack! And he almost takes out a second creature, but misses.

    The shield-fighter knocks one away from himself.
    HAMster:2X3 → 1( (3, 1→ 1 success against 3) )#shield guy
    But the creature appears unharmed.

    "Oh, balls!"

    Two converge on the man with the mace.
    HAMster:2X3 → 2( (1, 6x2→ 2 successes against 3) )#mace guy
    HAMster:1X3 → 2( (6x2→ 2 successes against 3) )#combo
    HAMster:1X3 → 1( (5→ 1 success against 3) )#3rd strike
    He smashes both masks into splinters, and the red glows of their eyes wisp away like smoke from an extinguished candle. After smashing a third creature to bits, he tells his men, "Take. No. Prisoners."

    "No shit take no prisoners!" the shield-fighter snaps. "I didn't bring a giant frigging pain and shovel, did I!"



    ((You can't run, so attack. Kell is in a relatively safe position to cast. 4 bark-bites are dead; 3 men are still alive...))

    Sigrlinn nods in gratitude to the men who stand beside her, and attacks one of the remaining bark-bites. Hopefully this attack will be stronger than her first.

    Muttering, "Ahhh, crud," Kell changes gears and casts her Wave Dance spell, willing a flood of water to come from the right of the bark bites and either drown them or carry them away, but miss her and her friends.





    ((Oops. Roll should have been just 1x3, so take only the first 4)).

    Nodding to the men in thanks, she readies herself for a possible next round of attacks.

    ((I think to keep life simple, casting requires you to roll the spell level. A combo means you can cast in the same round.))



    Kell manages to get her spell out quickly. A ghostly wail echoes throughout the swamp. Though all of the masks remain intact, the creatures' muddy bodies appear diluted.

    When Sigrlinn slashes at the nearest creature, the mud-water body splashes to the ground. Her thrust sends the bark mask flying into another creature, which falls apart easily!



    ((6 bark-bites dead + their defense is down for the next 5 rounds!
    You can't tell how many remain, but...))



    ...like a five-headed hydra, bark-bites lurch over your party and strike!

    HAMster: repeat 3 2e5 → 1; 0; 2( (4, 5→ 1 success against 5) );( (4, 1→ 0 successes against 5) );( (5, 5→ 2 successes against 5) )#def - mace, shld, swd

    Two of the men dodge and parry the monsters, but one bites deep into the shield-fighter's armor. "Gaah! Useless hunka metal!" he growls.

    Sigrlinn does her best to dodge the oncoming attack...




    ...but moving is tricky in the mud. Trickier than she thought!

    Despite the mud, the water she just introduced to the area actually makes moving easier for Kell.

    Kell manages to dive out of the way (with amazing grace!). As for Sigrlinn, a creature bites into her armor. Its wooden teeth sink into her shoulder, and the monster emits a horrible stench!


    ((-1HP to Sigrlinn. The stink doesn't do anything other than maybe gross her out.

    Sig: 3/4HP
    Kell: 4/4HP))



    The men start to strike back, though the shield-fighter staggers as he steps into his strike…

    HAMster: repeat 3 2x3 → 2; 2; 1( (4, 3→ 2 successes against 3) );( (3, 4→ 2 successes against 3) );( (4, 2→ 1 success against 3) )#attacks mace Windu, shield Jackson, and sword McMoughin

    All five of the creatures that just attacked you die in a spectacular splash! But there are more…


    ((11 dead. And you still get to attack before they do!
    A NOTE about unarmed strike: only combo rolls inflict damage.))

    Sigrlinn yelps in pain as the bark-bite sinks its teeth in her shoulder, and gags on the stink that arises. But the knights quickly kill it, as well as its companions.

    ...Though not all of them, as she soon sees. Sigrlinn bares her teeth and attacks the first bark-bite who gets within reach...

    Kell quickly summons an Ice Blade.

    A sword forms in Kell's hands. It's not the most durable thing, but it'll do. As for Sigrlinn, she managed to drop two more of the monsters. Likely, you'll kill them all before Kell's water spell wears off…

    HAMster: repeat 3 2e5 → 0; 0; 1( (2, 3→ 0 successes against 5) );( (3, 4→ 0 successes against 5) );( (4, 6→ 1 success against 5) )#def mace, shld, swd

    Unfortunately, they're taking at least one more knight with them. The man with the mace is again clobbered as a bark mask shatters against his helm. The swordsman manages to block his opponent. As for the shield-fighter, he doesn't even see the attack coming—

    —but the inside of his helm glows bright red. He turns to you crying out in agony, but his scream turns to a gurgling sound. Reddish brown liquid sprays from his armor. In the next instant, he explodes!
