The fire is released somewhere in the vicinity of the Hobgoblin's feet. It dances wildly, angered but not really hurt from this attack.

Graven rose second with wordles cry of rage. He moved swiftly ignoring the closest enemy and getting between two further-placed goblins. He then swung his huge maul at one of them, while the air around him started to get oddly cold.

The huge maul barely misses crushing the skull of the Hobgoblin, who shrieks in alarm.

A small black goblin you mistook for a hobgoblin at first throws a bitumen torch that it was holding behind the bar, barely missing the Barman. It the skitters behind a nearby table.

"Heavens Alive!" Norian yells as the hobgoblins roll into the inn. He then finds himself near one. He decides to put a little bit of space between him and the goblin, and then points a finger at said goblin. "Pelor, guide this holy bolt! LANCE OF FAITH!" Suddenly, a ray of brilliant light shoots out from the tip of Norians finger, and heads for the goblin.

The bright ray is barely dodged by a very very annoyed Hobgoblin. He retaliates against the closest thing he can find, which happens to be Rah. The Hobgoblin's Longsword carries out the will of his anger, inflicting an unhealthy looking wound.

The pack enraged by Graven's enchanment launch a counterstrike against him as well! Graven is barely nimble enough to avoid one blow on his armor, but the second lands soundly.

Realizing he was being left behind, Adis jumped to his feet. "Hmm, troublesome... troublesome..ah!" Stretching out his staff, Adis began quickly reciting an incantation. "Oh grasp of winter, reach out and bind my foes. Let thy fingers bring them tranquility..." The tip began glowing brighter and brighter. As the incantation finished, a bolt of white light shot towards the Hobgoblin bothering Rah. Without looking to see if it hit, Adis began to move around towards Graven.

Karan was last to react. Without a single word, and with the usual emotionless expression on her face, she grabbed her sword from the floor, unsheathed it, and launched forward, recklessly charging at the one she considered to pose the biggest threat- the goblin.

Blood was drawn. In Rah's eyes, one could see only the fury of an enraged beast! His little legs rocket him forth on a course of destruction!

Adis Ray of Frost definitely cools the Hobgoblin's anger down. He falls to the floor, unmoving. Frozen to death!

Karan leaps into the fray, not suffering any attacks of opportunity from frozen corpses, instead charging up and sinking her blade in between the shoulders of yet another Hobgoblin!

Seeing the bitumen torch land inbetween the bottles behind the bar, the Barman leaps around towards the side of the bar, just barely making it in time before the whole serving area leaps into flames. High proof stuff he's storing, apparently. The gamblers in the corner scrabble to pick up their money, while one courageous customer actually picks up a chair and runs into the fray! He doesn't manage to hurt the nearest Hobgoblin, but at least he doesn't get himself killed. "For me Pappie!" is his warcry.

Another round, and some MORE Hobgoblins pour through the front door. The first two in turn their attentions towards the closest thing...Karan. She has her back to them initially, and is badly scratched by the first blow, but manages to evade the second. The third Hobgoblin heads for Rah, missing him entirely in his hurry to prove himself, and the fourth finds it's way up to our civilian who entered the fray. Sadly, a chair is not good protection against a Longsword, and he is literally cut in half.
Map before Rah unleases the fury

Rah appears to not like this chain of events. He lets his fury go, weaving a path through the carnage. His strikes take down all but two of the remaining Hobgoblins, and leave him panting for breath.

Graven takes another swing at hobgoblin near him, but due to Rah's sudden apperance near him he is thrown off-balance and misses. Cold, windy aura continues to emanate from warforged keeping goblinoids attention on him.

The small scuttering Hobgoblin leaps over the table he's hiding behind and douses it with the flames from another bitumen torch that it lights for the task. The Inn is really starting to heat up!

Despite missing, Norian is undaunted. After cheering Rah on due to his martial prowress, he moves near Adis. "You guys take out that Pyromaniacal Goblin, I'll finish this fool off!"
With these words, Norian tosses a lance of faith at the hobgoblin, and the bright bolt screams towards its target at a frightening pace.

Seeing hit previous victim stiff as a board, Adis turn his attention to more immanent dangers. The fire behind the bar was quickly spreading out of control and would soon be too large to manage if not dealt with soon. Moving closer for a clear shot, he took a deep breath and began another recitation. "Breath of winter, calm the lands. Bring stillness to a raging world..." he began, this recitation being longer and more complex than the first. As he finished, the air behind the bar began to sparkle as the flames slowly died down. The fire at the entrance was still present but the immediate crisis had been averted.

Karan freed the blade from the corpse of slain hobgoblin, and turned towards arsonist goblin. Quickly, she lunged forward to him, her blade ready to deliver powerful overhead swing, immediately followed by second, slightly less powerful, but still formidable thrust.

Norian's target is surrounded by holy light. Angels can be heard for a moment, but we all know this Hobgoblin isn't going there.

Karan, seeing everyone in the party spending daily powers, doesn't want to be left out, and quickly smashes the heck out of our Goblin Blackblade. His first attack badly bloodies the small creature, the second makes it squeal and it dies a slow, painful death.

The Bartender looks up over the top of his bar, which is now covered with a light sheen of frost. His amazement is even greater that there are no Goblins alive in his bar, either! He grabs hold of the patron fleeing out of the back, yelling "Come now! They're all dead! Let's get this fire out before it spreads!"

One patron rushes up towards Norian with the amazing comment of "Whoa! I never knew priests could do that! Maybe I should go to church more often!"

The gamblers in the corner let the last few coins tinkle from their hands, and gawk at the carnage around the room. Suddenly one of them points and screams "There's one at the window!"

That's right, there's more! Two more hobgoblin grunts break through the front window, and seeing their comrades all dead around the Inn, let out a loud scream that  brings reinforcements in with them. Sadly for them, reinforcements is only two more of their ilk, one holding another torch at the ready.
