Esgalwen let her bow clatter to the deck once she had reached the other side of the bridge, grasping her sword in two hands as she brought it down in a sweeping attack.

:ooc: Okay... she will attack the first wight close at hand as she makes it to the other side.

Nimronyn bites into the root-armed wight, shivering rusted mail and old bones in a great blow that would have cleft any mortal Man in twain.  But the mud and muck that makes up the greater part of the vile thing's body seems to seize the blade and hold it, and it is all she can do to tug it loose as the empty holes that once were a living man's eyes fix themselves upon her.

:ooc: I'll give you this one since you haven't been travelling and living rough (and I'm not a total dick).  Normally, her winter travelling gear would put you one point over the threshold.  Something to bear in mind for the future. 

Terrific hit, though!

:ooc: Esgalwen's Fatigue score is 13 from the travel and battle we had in the marshes. Wouldn't we have all had sound rest in Laketown (or even Dale) since we returned from that encounter?

:ooc: Yes, you certainly would.  In fact, I'll assume that you can all calculate Fatigue scores without travelling gear until you actually leave town.  I'll update the character sheets when I get a minute.

With a hiss through his teeth Arbogast follows Esgalwen on to the platform, quickly approaching the jawless wight in the centre of the four buildings.  He does not wait long for an opening, letting the Warden's Axe break roots and bones asunder.  Further away, Laeral frowns at her wayward shaft but swiftly nocks another, aiming for the rusted helm of the third wight as Hathcyn harries it with his spear.

With a wet sound like the splintering of moldering wood, the Fire-watcher tears into the jawless wight.  The creature's countenance does not - cannot - change, but the arms that had reached for shield and throat abruptly go limp as the animating spirit flees its shell of brute matter.  Then, with a soft squelching sound and a sudden noisome stench, it splatters on the timbers of the tollhouse platform and is no more. 

Heedless, the two remaining wights reach with fingers of mud, twigs and bone for their living foes. 


:ooc: A disappointing Defence roll for the wights, but one does not look these things in the mouth! 

The wights fight back:

Root arm (TN 15)
:00: 1d12 : 6, total 6

Esgalwen feels cold mud around her throat as the wight bats Nimronyn aside with its root-arm and oozes inside her guard.
She drops, spinning her body to the side to escape before dead fingers can find their mark.  Mere yards away, Hathcyn gives ground before a series of wild haymaker blows which threaten to splinter bones and crush the vitals beneath.
