Saucix steps up to form at least his part of the Shepherd's Formation, and attacks one of the beasts past Gerald.
Rolled Melee 14+1 vs. AC, rolled damage 3+1
He slices its throat open, and it falls, releasing another disgusting wave of odour. Saucix and Adarim keep their cool, but Gerald retches, Logan throws up half digested meat, Gregor is overwhelmed and drops to his knees coughing and gasping, Nisos collapses on the floor vomiting then falls unconscious. 1 damage
Gregor's fit passes, but he can't do anything else this turn.
Acting quickly, Adarim pulls out a jug of oil, stuffs a strap of cloth torn from his sleeve into it, and lights it on fire. He then throws the improvised bomb past Gerald into the mass of the creatures.
Rolled Ranged 11+1 vs. AC, rolled damage 4+0
One beast is hit right in the head, burning oil spatters in all directions. It flails in panic for a moment before falling down into the flames. There is no great release of stench this time. Two other beasts are hit by the spatters. One is lit up just as badly and falls, the other is just singed and runs screaming. The tunnel in front of Gerald becomes blocked by a patch of burning oil. The beasts squeal and back away from the fire.
And then, behind you, eleven more beasts emerge from the darkness.
