Cam asks questions but the creatures locked in combat offer little in the way of answers.
Sayniek continues to hold the door but cannot seem to find a good avenue of attack.
Vidar keeps an eye out for witnesses while Kithian decides its best to use his size to scale the outside of the building in pursuit of "Foxglove"
1d20 + 7 ⇒ (16) + 7 = 231d20 + 7 ⇒ (12) + 7 = 19
The ugothols, as Cam called them, continue to try to hit Sayniek but to little effect.
When Sayniek sees Kithian's gigantic head, which now almost equates to Vidar's swollen ego, she smiles and rather than making an attack, she instead releases the magic which made the barbarian so big, so as to enable him to get through the windows behind the creatures she is facing.
Standard: Dismiss Enlarge Person
As she does this, she appears to be almost toying with the enemies by neither attacking or taking any type of a defensive maneuver.
Is that the best you have? Ragathiel will be disappointed that I used my skills on ones so incompetent.
Fairly certain that there is no need for him to get involved, Vidar leans back against the wall.
With obviously pleasure he takes a drag on his pipe and nonchalantly blows a smoke ring towards the sky.
He was waiting for the inevitable noise to come.
And when the guards comes running over (most likely scenario) he would be ready to explain.
Once small enough to enter the window behind Foxglove, the half orc draws his falchion and advances on the closes of the creatures.
Attack: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (1) + 10 = 11
Damage: 2d4 + 14 ⇒ (4, 2) + 14 = 20
1d20 + 7 ⇒ (6) + 7 = 13 [Kithian]
1d20 + 7 ⇒ (13) + 7 = 20 [Sayniek]
Sayniek you are a pain in the ass. At least in our other game you make fights end quickly. In this one you just make them drag on FOREVER! At least Kithian is in the fight now though he needs to roll better. ;p
Kithian clamors into the room and offers an ugly chop that the creture closest to him manages to evade.
As Cam's song of courage fills the air Vidar notes that the street remains relatively empty though the broken window does make it easier to hear Cam's song on the street below.
The two faceless stalkers split their attentions, the back one joining the fight with Kithian in earnest but unable to land a solid blow. The other continue to pound on Sayniek's diminutive frame but the paladin's armor merely offers the hollow ring of Ragtheil's enduring protection...
Sayniek pauses momentarily as she hears what sounds like a rogue deity criticizing her defensive tactics in her head. But quickly shrugs it off before continuing her attack.
Glad you could join us big man. You and ugly should take a course on the use of doors.
And with that she once more swings her sword at the shapeshifter before her.
Attack-bastard sword: 1d20 + 9 + 1 ⇒ (7) + 9 + 1 = 17
Damage: 1d8 + 2 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 2 + 1 = 8
If it is possible, Sayniek will take a 5' step to get adjacent to Kithian so that she can use Saving Shield as an immediate action before the first attack against Kithian.
What? How can I cower behind you if you move into the room? *Ahem*
With Kithian crowding into the relatively small room with the two ambushers, the bow is not going to be helpful, so Camillo forestalls firing. Instead, he reaches into his pouch and draws forth a rose petal. He stops singing but lingering performance will keep the effect going for two more rounds and flings the petal in the air. "For you, dear Iesha!"
I'm sure this will fail, but Cam isn't. He casts sleep centered to catch both faceless stalkers and not his allies - who are immune, anyway. It's one round to cast, so it won't take effect, if it does, until next round, targeting the one that came in the window first.
Kithian shrugs as he dances with the creature. "Where I grew up if you wanted into a tent you just cut a hole in the side."

Sayniek manages to land a solid strike on the stalker in front of her as the melee unfolds in earnest. Cam offers a spell that, shockingly, forces Sayniek's foes to the ground with a solid *thud*.
The other stalker finds itself distracted momentarily which Kithian uses to full effect, channeling his rage into a devastating attack that cuts deep into his enemy. The stalker stumbles from the blow and turning its featureless face attempts to flee...
I need an AoO from Kithian. It failed its Acro check...
While the others discuss Aldern's melee prowess and the general appearance of whatever lies dead on the ground, Sayniek pulls out some rope and begins to bind the shapeshifter on the ground.
Sayniek will bind the sleeping shape changer, and gag it so that it does not shout if/when it awakes.
"To be quite frank, I think excluding them might cause is problems in the long run.
However, we could do our own investigation first, before alerting the "proper" authorities.
We have after all found dangerous creatures capable of infiltrating and assassination..."
Camillo motions to the wizard to step out of the room. As they step out, he says to the others, "If you can keep an eye on the creature - I have my doubts about the ability of mere rope to hold a shapeshifter like this - we will be back in a moment."
Once they are out of earshot, at least of a possibly feigning prisoner, Camillo shares the following with the wizard.
"They are a known, if unusual, quantity in the area. They inhabit the nearby Mushfens. They are generally very solitary - a pair of them laying in wait is very out of character. They were arguing about it, in fact, when I listened earlier - I just didn't realize what they really disagreed about."
"I am far more concerned about who or what is able to compel two ugothols to ambush us than I am about the ugothols themselves. I'm hopeful that a promise of freedom might compel the creature to tell us what we need to know. However, if you wish to involve the authorities, let's make sure we are in agreement with regards to the how and when. What do you think?"
