    As Fosphil charges forward, Lyssa aims an harassing blast of starlight at the skeletal swordsman unhindered by Azael's starfall.

    It falls short by mere feet.

    Two skeletons move up rapidly to deal with the brash Fosphil, charging him from two sides. Their sudden dual assault catches Fosphil off-guard, and he is wounded by both attackers, particularly the flaming skeleton who sears his flesh with a glowing sword.

    As the clattering creatures burst through the undergrowth, Fosphil attempted to finish one with a quick swipe of his shield, only to leave himself open to a beating. Crouching low and spinning to face the other, less combustive skeleton, he used shield and spear to force the creature back toward it's allies

    One of the skeletons dashes forward past Fosphil to engage with Iados, but stumbles slightly over a tree root protruding from the ground, knocking it off balance. Meanwhile, the two skeleton archers in the back separate, one shooting at Fosphil, while the other follows the pointing hand of the remaining skeleton gesturing its staff towards Azael. These archers seem well-trained - if undead archers are trained - as their arrows strike their targets, causing some moderate wounds.

    Seeing his new comrade under assault, Caleb leaps forward, slashing violently at one of the skeletons. The force of his cut sends the empy skull spinning of into the forest, and the bones collapse into a pile of dust.

    "Ho! One down, friends! Keep fighting, Fos, those last couple blows barely scratched your skin!"

    Fosphil glances quickly at his wounds and realizes that he's barely injured.

    "Iados!" Lyssa calls, blasting the skeleton beside the Tiefling with holy starfire, after layering her divine magics of challenge and vulnerability upon the undead beast, "Retreat behind me! Approaching you then will only hurt it further!" She seems somewhat surprised as the thing suddenly falls apart in a heap at Iados's feet.

    She then looks uneasily at the only skeleton yet to ask in the cover of the trees.

    The remaining skeleton begins gesticulating with its staff, its assorted, mismatched teeth chattering rhythmically as its jawbone rises and falls. A dark shadowy aura forms around it, extending about 15 feet out in all directions. As the dark energy swirls about like a hurricane of black wisps with the skeleton in its eye, some of the black strands gather up into a ball and shoot up into the treetops before bursting above our heroes' heads and sending its black feathery fragments raining down upon him and the skeletons nearby. They sting where they touch skin, though Lyssa is the only one unaffected, whereas the others feel weaker and fatigued.

    Caleb grimaces as the armor pierces his scale armor, burying its barded head deep into his side.

    He wipes the blood from his lips, and calls out to Azael. "Azael! Get back up. You're only part-dead, we need that other half blasting these things!"

    The warlord then grits his teeth, taking the opening Fosphil provided to slip past the skeleton, putting his back up against a tree. He reaches deep down, preparing himself for another effort at the skeletons.

    Lyssa manoeuvers to negate the archer's tree cover with a clank, keeping her shield raised. She fires a lance of cold starlight from the symbol of her faith at the thing, striking it solidly in the chest.

    Again the dark energy underneath the staff-wielding skeleton shoots up into the canopy, this time raining down upon Fosphil and Caleb. The skeleton engaged with Fosphil is energized by the black wisps entwining with its bones, and it quickly sidesteps in front of Fosphil, distracting the wilden from guarding against the falling pinpricks, which Caleb deflects by raising his shield to the air.

    "Nah, I got it," Iados responds. Iados really hates arrows, so he decided to kill the thing shooting arrows at him. He drives a spike into the psionic imprint of the skeleton and erases it from existence. The cover though? Good idea. He dashes into some trees.

    Azael was barely back on her feet after that last shot, boosted by her comrades' words and spells. "I'm here," she grunted. "I'm here!"

    The mage also realized she was still there when it was incinerated in a radiant light. That looked like it had to hurt.

    With almost prescient reflexes, Fosphil strikes the undead almost before the opening in it's defences appears. Zig-zagging through the forest before it's bones could clatter to the ground, the wilden bashes the decrepit wizard with his shield before streaking through the undergrowth to strike at the (seemingly) final bony attacker.

    Reeling from two sudden attacks, the first staff-wielding skeleton now redirects its staff from Azael to Fosphil. It seems rather unnecessary though, as the remaining skeleton in its party is already drawing its sword to swipe at Fosphil.
