Norian manages to convince everyone to take a look, but besides the obvious of "Whoa, too many hands!" no one could figure out exactly what was going on in the graves.

When Sertanian started muttering about Mirtala and started walking towards the door to the south, Graven decided that perhaps you should move on the for the moment. The hallway was nondescript, and as Adis had described, did turn left after around twenty feet.

Turning the corner quickly in an attempt at surprise, you realize why the little creature wasn't able to get a good look at what was in the room. On the far wall is an altar, with a crumpled form chained to the front of it. The candlelight from the altar bathes over several statues between you and it, and you notice with an odd shiver that their eyes are glowing. What they are is only revealed once Adis' spell flares into life: displacer beast statues. Thankfully not THAT lifelike, but still very distressing.

Encounter: Fresco Chamber

You quickly notice a few large rats moving near the statues, and while they're still reeling from the change in light, you attack!

Inatai wasn't quite so willing to charge into battle this time. "Hm. A dead end - but some prize with it, at least. Be wary of those statues..." he stated as he drew in the surrounding shadows into a sheath for his blade - then turned said sheath into three black darts that launched at the rat in the middle of the hall.

"Yes, those statues don't...don't look right." Norian said with a bit of a serious tone to his voice. He hated jump scares more than most people, and that's saying something. "However, we have something more important in front of us. These rats will be all over us if we don't hurry and kill them right now...although the statues are a more pressing concern"

Norian tosses a ball of white fire at a rodent near the one Inatai tried to hit,

Joining in on the barrage, Adis blasted one of the rats with ice, rooting it to the floor. As he did he couldn't understand his companions reactions to the statues. I mean they are just Displacer Beasts.

- "[Warning: joke module error] Somebody called the exterminator?" - Graven swung his sword without moving and like goblins in previous battle, the rats felt some force cutting and pushing them.

Your success in surprising these evil monsters further continues as nearly every attempt to harm them is successful, resulting in a wonderful range of painful squeaks and shrieks. One of the rats even staggers backwards from the force of your combined blows.

Karan lunged forward, sword raised high. She was in a very, very, very bad mood, due to her less than glorious conduct during last few fights.

Charging at the wounded rat, she allowed the scent of sweet blood to overtake her senses as she struck against it.

Inatai skipped on his usual teleporting through the shadows routine, and with blade drawn simply ran towards the current closest rat to strike another blow. The sword, however, missed the little vermin and scraped along the floor instead.

Karan's new blade slides with ease out the other end of the rat's torso, but her second attack is just wide the next rat.

Both the remaining rats appear to dislike Karan having killed their comrade and attack her, but they miss very badly.

Envisioning a field of razor sharp wires, invisible threads appeared around one of the rats. However the rat was too low to be caught from their initial appearance.

Graven moves towards the other rat and takes a swing at it.

Overjoyed when warm rodent's blood sprayed on her face, Karan continues to cleave her way through those rats of unusual size.

Inatai took advantage of the rats being distracted by the other fighters and took to travelling through the shadows once more - this time appearing behind the two rats to deliver a blow to the one that Karan had just targeted.
