With only the one Skeleton left to fight, Horizon stands, and attacks. He closes in on the skeleton, driving both blades into its ribcage, cracking his helmet against its skull. Then, with a firm grip, he lifts it into the air, and violently throws it to the ground.

Combat:
1st Standard:
[-1] AF (Flaming Arrow) - Standard Attack
Deal 1d8 damage to target creature. That creature suffers 3 ongoing damage (save ends).
1d8 (roll twice): 7, 3

2nd Standard:
[+1] Hack, Slash (Noxious Mixture) - Standard Attack
Deal 2d4 damage to target creature. If the creature is suffering from a (save
ends) condition, deal 1d12 damage to the creature instead.
1d12= 6

[-2(-1)] Brutality (Where it Hurts)- Interrupt Utility
Trigger - You attack an enemy suffering from a (save-ends) effect.
Effect - The triggering attack deals 1d12 extra damage to that enemy. You may use this talent only once per turn.
1d12=9

Total: 7+6+9=22 Damage
Stats:
HP: 30+8
Pips: 2
Status: Actually Fine

Horizon demolishes the skeleton.

No longer distracted, the infiltrators can see that the outer walls appear to have been set on fire, somehow. Skeletons are doing their best to extinguish it, partially succeeding. Lacking water, they are forced to pat it down with their bodies and cloths. Though they feel no pain from the flames, the raging inferno still destroys some of them, but is slowly being 'drowned out' by their numbers.

They can also clearly hear someone shouting orders at the skeletons, near the tent's front: "Put it out you numbskulls! Then find the infiltrators! No, not like that, use water! Where's all the water?! Agh! Must I do this myself?!"

Outside, the skeleton bounces back Rolf's bolt back at him, stunning him.

Combat#2 Interrupt:
Rolf gets interrupted by Riposte, stunning him (save ends) and weakening skelly.

Skelly's at 1hp after Adara, so next hit kills it.



Fight #1 is over. Fight#2 too, technically.

Jeraylia taps the charred skull off the burnt skeleton.
"Medium, well done," Jeraylia remarks, admiring Adara's work. She then kneels next to the downed paladin to examine him and offer assistance if she can. "How're you doing, champ?"


heal check: 14 ( 5 + 9heal )
I'm assuming Zarhon's 1hp thing and just poke the skeleton with some damage (demand duel, for instance) ability to bring our combat to a close. Maybe now that she's here, Adara can stoke the wall fire.

"Cooked to perfection, I should think. I do hope I get to show off my showstopper eventually, but it's just so hard to find opponents that can last long enough."

Rolf turned to Adara. "Thanks for the help. You think you could stick around for a minute? There's still a whole horde of skeletons up ahead."

"Sorry, Rolfie, but unless they're right in front of me to attack, the contract ends," Adara said as the green light started to envelop her. "You stay safe now. Hmm, am I forgetting something? Oh, right." Adara enveloped Rolf in one of her trademark hugs before fading away. "See you soon, Rolfie..."

"...Ahem. Well, let's see if we can get our comrades back on their feet." Rolf went over to help Jeraylia heal the paladins however he could, then looked over at the encampment walls to see if he could tell what was going on.

Healing the Paladins...9 (1d20) + 9 = 18
Perception to see what going on at the wall...Nat 20 + 7 = 27

"Well now, see? That wasn't so bad." Horizon takes a look at the flames peeking over the wall. "....and they always yell at me for starting fires." He turns to Zthulan. "Shaman, let me cue you in on something. While I certainly appreciate the whole "keep me alive" thing... I fight better when things are desperate. Fear of defeat and death is quite... motivating." A black wisp flares up behind him, punctuating his final word.

Zthulan's eyes narrow towards Horizon before nodding. "Very well 'Horizon' I will do my best to remember this fact. I am sure the upcoming battles will provide ample risk." He also spares a glance to fire. "So let us go forward before either we or the others get overrun."

Rolf's attempt at healing the savagely-beaten paladin are lackluster, keeping him from bleeding out, but otherwise remaining vulnerable and unconscious. Bob, though trained, is apparently too flustered from anxiety to perform much better.

From a glance, Rolf can tell that the wall is burning, and rather brightly - in fact, at the rate it's going, there appears to be a risk of the neighboring buildings getting caught up in the blaze!

Besides that, he can tell that the burning wall is being 'extinguished' by a bunch of skeletons, who are getting damaged or burned in the process, lacking water. The skeletons appears to be 'led' by a rather unique, sentient skeleton: A ram-horned one. It's using some sort of red magic to douse the fires.



Assists on the heal check?
The ones inside the walls can do stealth if they aren't doing anything revealing/drastic.

Hmmmm.....



Horizon shrugs, and then begins spying along the wall again. "Well, we don't have a lot of options. Might as well try and get up to the main tent and light the candle. Yeah?" He begins making his way in that direction, slowly.


Stealth: 9+12=21
BTW, that was Horizons IC way of telling Zthulan to let me get bloodied or ko'd, so I can put out more damage.

I'll try and snap Bob out of his shell shock. And assist Rolf with his check.

Persuasion on Bob: 17 ( 3+14persuasion)
Heal Assist Rolf on Paladin: 25 (16+9heal )

And I might just use one "Lead by example" to boost Rolf's roll even higher:
Resulting:
My roll: Heal assist now: 17 (9+8heal) for a +4bonus.
Rolf's total heal roll (new): 29 ( 16+9RolfHeal+4assist )

Hoping my influence on Bob will get him to bump our total just over 30.



Jeraylia instructs Rolf on how to best to mend the wound, finishing by wrapping the torso tightly with medicine soaked bandages. As they work, she turns some attention to their shaking comrade.
"Bob!" Jeraylia barks. She continues in a gentler tone, "Calm yourself. Stanley needs our aid. This is our baptism of fire, we're only just going into the burning woods. Trust in Pelor and belay your anxiety until we've returned to the church."

This is the story of a paladin named Stanley.

Stanley lived in a big temple in Fezaris, where he was paladin number five. His job as paladin was simple: To enforce his faith and destroy the undead scourge from his beloved neighborhood. Commandments came to him from his god and saints, telling him how to act. Some might find this brain-washing, but Stanley fulfilled his holy duties faithfully.

Then, one day, something peculiar happened during a skirmish.

Stanley was lying on the floor, face first, after being savagely beaten by a skeleton. This unique situation got Stanley to think. "This never happened before.", Stanley thought, in his subconscious mind, as his conscious one was unconscious. "Did I do something wrong?", he worried. "Am I disgracing my holy title?". He contemplated deeply. If he had been conscious, he likely would have pondered the floor as well. "Was that skeleton truly so powerful?", he considered. "Is my skeleton stronger?", he theorized.

As he waxed philosophical, Stanley suddenly felt a slight push against his subconscious mind. The push then became a shove. It was his conscious mind. It was very annoyed with his philosophy, much like a cat is annoyed by an owner that doesn't give it his or her full undivided attention and worship.

Whilst Stanley was thinking about the greater scheme of things, his allies, being the helpful coworkers they were, had been doing their hardest to wake him up from his bruise-induced slumber. Despite the quirky wizard and the mildly traumatized priest's
