    Seeing the undead slowly rise from the earth, Everan sees an opportunity and moves closer to them.

    With a snort and a scowl, Canderus steps out onto the rocky terrain next to a nearby zombie and swings away.

    Realizing that the skeletons are probably not the best target for his bolts, Odunn reloads his bow and fires a bolt with the sizzling energy of a lightning elemental at the minotaur's target, hoping their combined attacks will be enough to take it down.

    Odunn quickly loads another bolt and wheels around to find another target....

    When the skeleton stands up and looks at Rubjo, the goblin starts shaking in his boots. The realization finally hit him that he had never had to fight an undead before. The skeletons creeped him out. He started to cower behind his shield, but then realized that one of his 'allies' was close by. He edged closer to the archer guy, who didn't seem flustered at all in the presence of the undead abominations.

    Still realizing that he needed to carry his weight, he managed to deal with his fear and swung wildly at the skeleton. This time the skeleton did not drop. Rubjo started to panic.

    Aaah! It won't die!

    The undead begin to move towards you, threatening to remove you from the realm of the living. One skeleton grabs a bow from the ground and send an arrow flying across the arena, though you're unsure who he was trying to aim at.

    Dakketh finds himself facing two skeletons, dodging the sword of one, but not quite avoiding the other. The small gash in his arm drips little blood.

    Rubjo, however, is not so lucky and finds the point of a rusty sword embedded in his shoulder. The skeleton's fleshless teeth still seem to smile, without any lips to prove one way or the other.

    A zombie shambles up to Odunn, swinging its arm at him and catching him in the chest. Odunn feels a bit winded by the attack and possibly a cracked rib or two. For being undead, they seem to be quite strong.

    Erevan notices that he is in a very bad position, as four zombies begin to surround him. He easily dodges the first strike, throwing the zombie off balance, but runs into the second zombie's attack, bruising his side. The third, however, is much stronger and wraps his arms around Erevan, immobilizing him.

    Despite having many wounds, the zombie near Canderus seems undeterred and catches him in the side with a powerful blow. Canderus coughs up a little blood from the blow as the zombie prepares to strike again.

    Dakketh quickly realizes that his companions are in trouble of being swarmed. With two quick blows, he shoves the skeleton in front of him stumbling backward over rubble, while smashing the skull of the weaker one. Finding himself with some breathing room, Dakketh jumps behind the shambling horde threatening Erevan. Becoming a whirlwind of blows, Dakketh completely destroys two of the weaker zombies, while inflicting serious damage on the other two.

    With some tricky maneuvering, Erevan manages to escape the grasp of his undead captor. Then, in the blink of an eye, he teleports out of harms way to the other side of the room.

    Canderus grits his teeth as the zombie tears into him, then repositions and lashes out with his axe. His axe lands a glancing blow and the zombie remains standing. Canderus gnashes his teeth in frustration and stomps the ground with one massive hoof. He is beginning to get angry.

    Rubjo was terrified of the skeleton that stood before him. He looked around for that big axe swinging minotaur, but he was 30 feet across the arena, dealing with some other nasty. The punch-kicky guy was doing some crazy stuff on the other side of him, but neither of them had their focus on the abomination in front of him. Rubjo felt isolated.

    The intense pain from his shoulder wound reminded him that this was a unique situation for him. He is usually one of many goblins in an attack, and never had to deal with go toe to toe with anyone. Even worse than the pain he felt was the joy that the skeleton was somehow able to express.

    Rubjo, wishing he had a bigger shield, cowered behind his small shield and did the best he could to not get hit again.

    Quickly thinning in numbers, the undead begin to make desperate attacks against anyone closest to them. Their desperation shows as they have much trouble connecting their attacks. Dakketh, unfortunately, pulls the short stick and is swamped by both skeletons and the undead. Only one skeleton and one zombie manage to stab and tear at him.

    Seeing himself surrounded and feeling these most recent blows, Dakketh decides to try to get out while he can. A spinning kick sends one zombie away, its rusted weapon thrusting at its companion but with no effect. A quick block and blow to the skull sends the skeleton skittering backwards. Taking advantage of his unorthodox movement style, Dakketh attempts to escape, running towards the rest of his gladiator compatriots.

    As Dakketh quickly moves out of the way, the zombie and skeleton make a last attack before he moves out of their range. Dakketh manages to avoid the zombie's strike, barely missing his face, but he doesn't see the longsword coming down behind him. The skeleton makes an expert strike, piercing through his back and blood to rush out onto the blade. Dakketh feels the blood loss and manages to use his momentum to carry him to the other side of the arena.

    Canderus scans the battlefield with narrowed eyes as the zombie before him falls, rage welling up inside of him. He watches the skeleton take a swing at the cowering goblin nearby and snorts in fury. As he moves towards it, his rage overflows and he begins to stamp furiously at the ground with his hooves. He winds up and swings his axe with the full force of his might and rage, dealing a powerful blow to the skeleton that might have done even more damage had his anger not clouded his focus.

    Though the strange reptile man seemed to be in trouble, audaciously fighting hand-to-hand with zombies and skeletons, Odunn finds he has little choice but to deal with his zombie harasser, it being ever so persistent in its pursuit.
    Spoiler:
    ZR2 dies, its corpse (zombie corpse?) devoured by ferociously biting insects. Back to back with the lone goblin oddly decked out in a suit of metal armor, Odunn notes in Goblin, "Not exactly your usual fare <insert some sort of goblin nickname here?>, but they fall as easily as a deer in the woods."

    Rubjo is relieved that the huge minotaur has come to his aid again. He shifts to the left and swings his sword and parries the skeleton's short sword, which give the minotaur an opening to attack the skeleton again.

    Then he sees the punch kick guy bleeding out of all sorts of wounds. He knows a little bit about battle recovery, and gives him the special goblin warchant, which toughens him up a bit and closes some of his wounds.
