[Everyone's battle plans are in now, but my laptop charger has stopped working properly. This wouldn't normally be a problem but I'm away from home so I don't have my main computer with me. It'll be a couple of days before I get the fight going as a consequence. Thanks to the Allfather that Pantheon is up and running again to keep you distracted!]

[Round 1]

Skeleton 3 charges in and swings a bony claw at Vargon and catches him with a glancing blow. Vargon takes 5 damage.

Caamora steps forward and attacks skeleton 3 with her kama. She misses entirely.

Xavier runs round the edge of the cave and fires his shortbow at skeleton 3. The arrows misses.

Irian moves 30ft backwards down the tunnel and then casts a spell.

Skeleton 1 charges in and swings his mining pick at Vargon He hits, but the strike bounces harmlessly off his armour.

Skeleton 5 charges in and attacks Charn with his sharp fingertips but misses due to extreme clumsiness.

Vargon swings his longsword at Skeleton 3 but the skeleton blocks the attack with its steel shield.

Charn Shouts out "FOR THE LIGHT!" and then swings his mace at Skeleton 6, but manages to miss entirely.

Skeleton 4 Runs towards the party but cannot approach beyond its fellows as they're blocking the way.

Skeleton 2 Charges towards Xavier and swings its mining pick. Xavier dodges the swing nimbly.

[End of Round 1. Please send me any changes. You have 1 hour before I start round 2. I will use the same battle plan as before if you do not submit any changes.]

[edit: Contrary to previous instructions, I'd like the changes to be posted in this thread please. It'll be easier for me to keep track of them, sifting through a load of PMs is more difficult than looking through one page of thread posts. (and everyone will know what each other are doing)]

Irian moves five feet closer to skeleton 3, while also moving to the side of her friends between said skeleton and herself. Hoping none of her friends block her line of sight, she casts Ray of Frost at skeleton 3...

Realising quickly that his rapier would do little harm to creatures without flesh, Xavier ignored it as he dropped his shortbow, instead pressing his crowbar into service as an improvised club, and attacking the nearest skeleton.

He planned to remain on the periphery of the melee, using his skill at sneak attacks to do as much damage to the skeletons as he could, until he was in danger of being overwhelmed.

[Round 2]

Skeleton 3 Swings his claws at Vargon but misses with both.

Skeleton 6 attacks Charn with his claws and hits with both, dealing 6 damage!

Caamora attacks Skeleton 3 with her kama again and hits! She deals 7 damage but the slash glances off the skeleton's bones in such a way that it doesn't seem to have done too much harm.

Xavier drops his shortbow on the floor, draws his crowbar and takes a swing at Skeleton 2. The crowbar whistles by the skeleton's ear.

Irian Takes a small step forward and then casts ray of frost at skeleton 3. The ray misses and zooms past.

Skeleton 1 swings his pick at [b]Vargon but it's way off target.

Skeleton 5 attacks Charn with both claws, but doesn't score any hits.

Vargon again attacks [b]skeleton 3 with his longsword. This time his hits it and deals 10 damage. Despite not seeming to affect the skeleton as much as it should have, the blow causes the skeleton to collapse into a pile of bones.

Charn attacks [b]skeleton 6 with his mace and hits it right in the skull! He deals 10 damage and the skeleton explodes in a shower of bones and smashed skull.

Skeleton 4 takes Skeleton 3's place and attacks Vargon. It doesn't hit.

Skeleton 2 Swings its pick at [/b]Xavier[/b] again and manages to score a hit, dealing 5 damage.

Next round, instead of attacking with mace, Charn will attempt to turn these creatures as he did the zombies. "Avaunt, creatures of darkness!"

Irian tries Ray of Frost again, moving as needed to get a clear shot at skeleton 4 without getting any closer.

Vargon is trying to block the skeletons and avoid them to reach Irian. He continues to strike with his sword...

"Charm i love the thing you do with your holy symbol... so please nex time do it at the first chance!" he said winking to the cleric

[Round 3]

Caamora attacks Skeleton 4 with her kama again manages to hit the floor in front of its feet.

Xavier takes another swing at Skeleton 2 with his crowbar. He misses.

Irian casts another ray of frost at skeleton 4. The ray is wildly off target and she nearly hits her own foot with it.

Skeleton 1 swings his pick at [b]Vargon but misses entirely and takes a chunk of rock out of the floor.

Skeleton 5 attacks Charn with both claws, but doesn't score any hits.

Vargon again attacks skeleton 1 with his longsword. He hits it and deals 10 damage. The skeleton is not as badly affected as it should be, and manages to remain upright, but wobbles around.

Charn raises his Holy Symbol towards the skeletons and shouts "Avaunt, creatures of darkness!" The skeletons all turn and start to run for their lives.

Skeleton 4 turns and runs away, 60ft away from you. You lose sight of it in the gloom.

Skeleton 2 Turns and runs for its life in the other direction, it runs into the gloom and you lose sight of it.

"Brother Charn!" Xavier paused a moment, head hanging with exhaustion. "If you can brother, I pray you heal us now while we have the breathing space. If you'll do so for me first, I'll guard you until you yourself can be healed.

If not, then you'll forgive me if I allow the more hale among us to continue the fight for the moment."

Holding his crowbar in his hands, he looked warily in the direction the skeletons had taken.

Vargon makes his full movement to try to follow the nearest skeleton at least to see it, if it is possible he will try to charge the nearest skeleton.

[I said 2 hours, but everyone will probably want to change their battle plans now the skeletons have been turned. I'll wait until everyone has added a post before I process the next round]

Irian opens her pack and removes one of her sunrods. Xavier had impressed her with his quick thinking about his crowbar. Hefting it in her hand while she considered, she tucks it under an arm, and attempts Ray of Frost yet again towards skeleton 1.

Charn sets down his mace and, grasping his holy symbol, turns to Xavier.
Calming himself, he lays a yet battle-twitchy hand on the rogue's chest, and intones, "Pelor's light upon you. Solaris salva zeris."
[ooc]Cast cure light wounds on Xavier - no movement this round.[/ooc]

Charn heaves a sigh, "But for a few slight prayers, my healing arts be now exhausted, lest we exit this place for rest and commune."

Caamora puts away the kama and uses her fists and feet.
_________________
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Healed, and as good as his word, Xavier nods gratefully to the Cleric, then takes up position if front of him, to renew his attack on the suddenly fleeing skeletons.

Charn grabs a lantern and quickly checks to make certain there are no additional tunnels leading away from this room.

[Assuming there are none] "My friends, let us pursue the walking dead while the Light of Pelor still drives them away!" Charn waits to see how the others respond to this idea.

Panting in frustration at her lack of accuracy with her spell, Irian turns to the cleric. "Brother, you yourself are still hurt, and I am," casting a skeptical glance towards Xavier, "'delicate.' I will gladly stay towards the rear with you and free our friend to more actively pursue these creatures, should he choose."

This time looking inquisitively towards Xavier. "Shall I stay and watch over the good Brother, while you chase after the Undead?"
