'Die, foul creature!' yells Tristan, striking at the goblin in front of him.

The brown goblin, stabbed clean through by Ryltar's rapier, collapsed to the floor... and then apparently collapsed in on itself, its body seemingly drawn into a single point with a brief flash... all that was left to mark its place was its fallen spear and a little glowing sphere of yellowish colour, hovering a foot or two off the ground. The goblin under attack by the paladin, on the other hand, still stood despide the pounding it had received. Just barely, but it still managed to stay upright.

In response to the Drow's display of "rapier" wit, a chorus of boos and hisses came from the raised gallery - followed shortly by another volley of fireballs, half aimed at the Drow, the other half at the monk. Only one managed to hit Ma'Kirr, though, and left minor burns.

Aden of course wonders about the goblin that just disappeared llike that, but quickly puts his mind back into battle. "Saliak! Try and get over next to this guy in front of me! I'll see if I can't give you an opprotunity!" Aden then tries and brings His sword upside the goblins head, but it's not promising. "Damn! Now I'm whiffing like my brother! He never did practice his form...grr..."

The goblin easily ducked Aden's blow, and then came back with its own spear. The thrust struck well, inflicting a serious injury, and the goblin pressed its advantage, forcing Aden back at spear-point and following him. His companion, despite his injuries, also seemed determined to leave a lasting mark on the heroes, lunging out at Tristan and also scoring an excellent hit, the force of the blow knocking the paladin back. Then it promptly moved back towards the pillar and its companion.

That was second time today her fur had been burned, which was 2 times too many. Reeling to get a fix on her targets, she spotted them up on a ledge. With amazing speed, she whipped up the stairs and  into one of the Goblin Firethrowers. Having impaled him on the spot, she immediately gave the other one a rapid succession of kicks, sending him flying backwards.

Saliak glanced over towards the goblins crowding around Aden. The spacing might be just right... His eyes close and he pulls upon his inner resolve. If he had any hair on his body, it would be standing on end.

"Bahumat sends his greetings, Goblins..."

- Give 'em hell kitty-cat! - drow shouted upon seeing Ma'Kirr massacre firethrowers then turned back to closer threats - there was an occasion for taking another stab at the problem. Maby even two...

The impaled red goblin thrashed on the end of a spear for a moment before the fire that seemed to burn within it got out, incinerating the creature in a flash of light and heat. Not a pleasant sensation for someone holding said goblin on the end of a stick, but nothing harmful at least. All that remained of the creature was a few cinders, and a tiny fiery-red sphere of light that hovered on the point of the spear for a moment before dropping off to the floor below.

By that time, of course, the other goblin had been kicked off the ledge and slammed against the pillar, sliding down - the flames overtook it as well, leaving a charred stain along the pillar and another of the fiery spheres on the floor below. Ma'Kirr might notice there was a third such sphere near the top of the stairs - no doubt left over from the firethrower Ryltar had slain.

Saliak's efforts did not have the desired result, however. Perhaps Bahamut was looking the other way that time. The lightning breath arced towards the pike of the healthier of the two brown goblins, giving it a nasty shock, but not much in the way of serious damage. The fire blast that came immediately after only singed their armour. They'd just begun to yell something insulting at the Dragonborn when Ryltar's blow caught the already weakened minion's throat, sending it sprawling to the ground. A few moments later it shared the fate of its companions, the only trace of it being an off-yellow sphere of light hovering a little off the floor.

'Wondrous work, servants of Light!' exclaims Tristan, while pointing his blade in the direction of one of the remaining brownies. 'I challenge you!' he yells, hoping to coerce the creature to charge at him, thus giving him the opportunity to strike at it.

The brown goblin seemed unimpressed, and took a brief break from keeping his spear stuck in Aden's side to hold out his arm with the middle claw extended towards the paladin.

The firethrowers in turn shifted around again at the top of the stair, letting loose another volley of fireballs. This time Saliak was the only one to receive any significant burns, the other shot flying over Tristan's head.

Aden had reached the breaking point. With a scream of rage, Aden swings his sword brutally at the goblin "I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF YOU! BE GONE!" He was so insenced that he managed to get another swing in before anyone knew what happened.

With those two pests gone, Ma'kirr sighed with relief. Turning around she saw the last two of the welcoming committee back up apprehensively. Grinning, she bounded towards the remaining goblins. Leaping past the first and closing in between the two, she thrust her spear into the farthest goblin. Using the still materialized gobiln as an anchor, she delivered a powerful kick to the remaining goblins throat.

Though heavily battered and bloodied, the brown goblin remained standing, and looked more than a little peeved off. It seemed determined to get back at Aden, but this time the spear point slid harmlessly off his armour, and in turn the goblin was wracked with pain from the magical compulsion Tristan had placed on it.

Up on the raised platform, Ma'Kirr swiftly dispatched the remaining firethrowers, which left only the badly wounded brown goblin the only enemy combatant remaining... and it was starting to have difficulty standing.

"Bahumat is better at speaking through others at times, it seems. Well spoken, Ryltar. Perhaps this shall aid if my words fail me once more." A lone rune glows brightly on the handle of Saliak's hammer, and he steps over towards the Goblin, swinging it downwards.

The blow struck the goblin square on the head, though for a few moments it seemed like it might remain standing.

Then it collapsed to the floor, its remains turning to a sphere of yellowish light, just like all the others. The tower lobby was now quiet, save for the crackling of the fires in the braziers.
