Everyone holds their breath as Grandmother once again creeps forward…
(click to show/hide)
After counting to six the others start to creep forward as quietly as they can.
Meanwhile…
Grandmother realises that if she casts now the further-most kidnappers will be outside of the spell’s influence. She creeps forward to the nearest ice pillar unnoticed. She mumbles and gestures the workings of the spell then crosses here crooked fingers for luck.
The bound young woman, slumps asleep as does one of the Ice Hunters. The leader yawns but remains standing. The others are unaffected. The hunters point at their companion and let out brief laughs but still do not seem to notice anything is amiss.

Meanwhile the others are creeping forward as close as they can get…

OOC: Grandmother is going to use her core ability, dropping an AD to rustle up 1d4=4 extra AD. With those, she'll use her quick casting trick to fling another Sleep out alongside her first one as a free action: 1d20+9=19. Hopefully at least one other of the badguys will drop before we're rumbled and the surprise round hits.

Also, it might be worth dropping Foproy, LordK and the others a PM just to remind them we're off an running again.

Disappointed with the result of her magic Grandmother draws on inner reserves and quickly summons up more arcane forces…
(click to show/hide)
…and two more of the ice folk call it a night, much to the rough amusement of their peers.
Kieri and Kaze creep forward quiet as shadows closing the distance between themselves and the Jarl’s killers but when Killishandra try to emulate the feat there is an awful clack of footsteps on the glacial ice. The three awake killers turn to look toward the noise! There are split seconds before the murderers grasp the situation and act….
Hearing the noise the cautious Bolo waves to Vashkar  signalling the start of the fight.

"Crap."

#That was clever of you.#

Ignoring the commentary, Killishandra thrusts her dark blade towards the foemen. "Crush them!" she roars, charging forward towards them.

Grandmother, meanwhile, once again calls upon her magic, reach out and beckoning to the shadows cast by the fire -- and the shadows respond to the invitation!

Keiri Vane throws, a knife archs out of the dark flashing red in the firelight…
(click to show/hide)
and flies past the target a full yard from the leader’s head.

On Bolo’s signal Vashkar begins his aerial charge he flies fast straight and true until he reaches the tight bend…
(click to show/hide)
and slams into the icy wall.

Bolo moves forward
(click to show/hide)

Killishandra thrusts her dark blade towards the foemen. "Crush them!" she roars, charging forward towards them.
(click to show/hide)
There is a nasty crunch on impact. The leader staggers back crashing into his companion before he falls, this second kidnapper is whipped around by the impact then falls forward as Killishandra passes him.

Grandmother, meanwhile, once again calls upon her magic, reach out and beckoning to the shadows cast by the fire -- and the shadows respond to the invitation!

EDIT: Kaze moves over the broken ground to Q26

Killishandra allows the momentum of her charge to spin her around, the movement permitting Dugh'leth Ghungmeh'Iw to carve through the space occupied by the fallen kidnapper. But that same impetus and the clutter of ice and supine bodies at her feet causes her to foul the followthrough aimed at the leader!

Grandmother, her view of the conflict obscured by her hiding spot, tries to bid her summoned darkling creature strike terror into the murderous hearts of the northmen.

Kaze takes a deep breath, focuses for a little moment, and then unleashes a storm of kicks, elbow blows and palm strikes to the enemies around him.

(click to show/hide)

…with bolo following
(click to show/hide)

One ice hunter stirs from his sleep and grabs his harpoon. (Q27)
(click to show/hide)

The Leader snatches up his harpoon and rises to his feet, his face twisted with rage.

Killishandra brings down the vengeful blade cutting deep into the sprawled hunters parka and spine. One foe down the ogress redirects to slice toward a sleeping form. The blade misses and the magical edge slices deep into the ice floor becoming stuck fast!
(click to show/hide)

Another hunter stirs and grabs for his harpoon. (P27)
(click to show/hide)

But his companion slumbers on (P28)
(click to show/hide)

Grandmother’s shadow creature looms over the enemies threateningly but among the shadows cast by the flickering fire the creature is indistinct and the hunters are focused on more substantial enemies.

Kaze’s hand flashes out choking the nearest standing foe (P27) unconscious is seconds.

Then turns on a ice hunter stirring from his sleep (Q27) breaking the hunters neck even as the foeman reaches for his harpoon.

Caught up in its thirst for blood, Killishandra surprises her enemy by choosing to abandon her blade. Instead she advances on the leader, her expression only passingly human as she smashes her fist deep into her enemy's belly; clawed fingers scythe upwards through his innards, deep into his chest. Snarling in victory as they lock eyes, she reefs back her shoulder and tears free his still beating heart with a wet red SCHLUCK!

Tossing the now useless organ aside as the leader's eviscerated corpse topples to the ice, she turns to triumphantly yank her blade free of its prison -- but the gore coating her hand leaves it too slick to gain purchase.

(click to show/hide)


With its attempts to inspire fear being so superbly inneffective, Grandmother instead orders her creature on the offensive, wading into the midst of those few still standing to try and subdue them for questioning while there are some still alive to do so.

Kaze moves over to another of the raiders and deliver a mighty blow, while tossing a scathing comment to their leader.

"I see why you became raiders, you're too weak to fight like men!"

(click to show/hide)
Actions

Keiri steps forward to get a little closer launches another two slim blades at the leader of the murderers. Both blades bury into the man’s parka.
(click to show/hide)

Now in a spacious cavern Vashkar unfurls with wings and in a wingbeat is over the heads of kidnappers and lands behind them whipping up the freezing air as he lands. The momentum of his flight behind a vicious halberd stab at the prone hunter but the hunter survives.
(click to show/hide)

Bolo scrambles forward hoping to arrive in time to aid his companions
(click to show/hide)

The leader of the raiders backs against the wall and lashes out at the bloody handed ogress with his harpoon scoring two hits but his crude ivory tipped weapon barely cuts through Killishandra’s armour.
(click to show/hide)

Another raider stirs in his sleep, grunts than slumbers on.
(click to show/hide)

The jagged cut from the harpoon only seems to enrage Killshandra further. Caught up in her thirst for blood, Killishandra surprises her enemy by choosing to abandon her blade. Instead she advances on the leader, her expression only passingly human as she smashes her fist deep into her enemy's belly; clawed fingers scythe upwards through his innards, deep into his chest. Snarling in victory as they lock eyes, she reefs back her shoulder and tears free his still beating heart with a wet red SCHLUCK!
So perish the enemies of the Jarl!
(click to show/hide)

Grandmother’s Shadow arcs a black blade at the only foe it can reach, a sleeping hunter cutting the man’s parka with the first blow and beheading him with the second.
(click to show/hide)

Kaze steps over the body of one fallen foe and showing the murderer of the old Jarl the compassion the villain deserves stomps down hard on the sleeping killer’s head killing him with a sickening crunch, the man must be dead or dying.
With no awake foes left scorn dies on Kaze’s lips.
