Merion has an idea and rushes over to Arren, whispering Let's give them something to shoot at. If I make the visuals, will you do the sound? I'm thinking a bunch of archers.
Then he pulls out a bit of fleece from his pocket and looks to her, then up at the castle walls.
Readying an action to cast Silent Image once Arren agrees It will be a squad of archers off to the left, raising and firing bows, and the arrows starting to streak off toward the keep.
As I think what was described, the ground floor where Ewan is also has a door, was there any sound of the ground floor door being opened or barricaded?
If opened or hearing scuffles near that door Ewan stays put close to the door and takes total defensive for now.
If any signs or sounds point towards the door being barricaded.
Ewan will try to move up towards the wall as well, intent on trying to help Ivar pin down whoever is in the rooms.
Ewan: Both the ground floor door and the rampart door have been barred shut. The ground floor one has taken minimal damage and won’t budge. The rampart door has been attacked a lot by Ivar and looks as if it could break soon. To get up there you’ll have to go up the stairs.
Helgar moves up and cast CLW on Ivar and heals him a significant amount. +9 HP Ivar (I am going to use Helgar’s previous roll)
Merion and Arren team up and use their arcane abilities to create an illusion of archers ready to attack. Arren: Ghost Sound is a 0 level spell that I will let you make concentration checks to continue for as long as you’d like. Similarly like Merion’s Silent Image
The Other Guys
Two more stones drop down from above, one missing Ivar, the other hitting Merion squarely but isn’t overly effective. -1 HP The archers in the windows continue to fire on Nempura and Albin. The attack on Nempura misses but Albin takes a bolt in the chest. -2 HP Other arrows continue to rain down from above through the fog, but no one is hit.
Top of Round 6
The fog is starting to thin out, you can start to make out the stone tower through it. You think that by the top of next round the fog will have been dissipated.
Ivar attacks out with his Bardiche. The door looks as if it is ready to give, but with the rocks dropping from above, maybe Ivar hasn’t been as effective as he could have been.
Initiative: Round 6
The Party Fog Round 3:
The Other Guys
Using Ivar’s roll from before to continue attacking the door for round 6
Arren/Ewan/Helgar/Merion/Nempura/Albin/Findal you’re up. What do you do?

DMG: 1d8 ⇒ 2
Nempura delays on the defensive until Ivar has destroyed the door. As Albin moves into combat, she growls. If the old man dies, at least he has died doing what he loved...though she is getting aggravated at his constant desire to rush into danger. She focuses on the door, not wanting to let his actions distract her from combat.
She will wait to see if the door is destroyed to act. She is still on the defensive.
Ewan moves up the stairs, feeling useless down at a place where there is no immediate threat. At least up at the wall he would be more useful when Ivar breaks down the door.
Will take Total Defense this turn if possible to protect against the rain of arrows, AC to 24
