    Hrothgar continues to rage and recklessly stab away as he has been - his eyes still averted.... fervently whispering to Kiri-Jolith that this foul witch dies soon.

    In a series of blistering attacks, the Sentinels converge on the Queen of Scales. Some God somewhere is watching over them as all of their attacks hit, despite several of them averting their eyes and swinging wildly in her general direction. As Hrotghar's last attack connects with her, the Queen of Scales wails as her life force begins to fade. Kalthanar can feel her tail briefly squeeze him tighter as she makes one last desperate lunge for True Courage. Kalthanar crashes to the ground as the Queen of Scales simply vaporizes into nothing, her avatar defeated. Hrothgar feels no euphoric sensation that normally comes from absorbing the life essence from a kill. If he was not enraged, he would likely realize that this confirms that she is not actually dead. That thought would likely occur to him later.

    The snake bowman that has harrassed them throughout most of the combat takes two more shots at Kalthanar trying to fulfull his Goddess's final act and end Kalthanar's life. Only one of the arrows connects though. Second later he is cut down by the combined might of the Sentinels.

    To the south, a hasty retreat is heard from the lone remaining snakeman. To the east, there is no evidence of the remaining cleric priest, but the Sentinels know his last location to be there.

    Kalthanar clutches his side and reaches for a healing potion, "Vortigern send your earth elemental to kill the remaining cultists. They will be no match for it."

    "Rocky," Vort points into the other room and commands, "go in there and kill that halfling, then anyone who attacks you."

    Rocky enters the room. From the hallway, he scans the room and wanders around briefly. He seems to be circling and patrolling, but doesn't attack anything.

    Shield floating in front, and crossbow in hand, Vort moves to the opening of the other room where ROcky is and looks around with his mask of cegilune and it's ability to see invisible, calling out any to Rocky to attack.

    Kalthanar rubs his temples, “There was a secret passage nearby if I recall. He must have fled the way we came.”

    Vort prays for Detect Magic and begins the search around the area for items of magic and possible threats--with Rocky protecting him.

    Hrothgar... biting his cheek to keep his rage going a little longer looks as though he is just waiting for someone to point him in a direction of something to hit....

    "Where?" he mutters in response to Kals mention of the secret passageway

    Rian was tired and hurt but the elf stood up straight. "I'm ready to hunt them down and exact vengeance."

    Kalthanar replies, "Is it worth the effort to hunt down two serpent men? We should rest for an hour and then search the place."

    Brandon looks back and forth between his companions. "I'm not wounded, but I'm practically out of spells," he explains, without making a decision whether to rest or pursue their foes.

    "Then that settles it," answers Kalthanar who keeps clutching his side.

    As the Sentinels crowd in the small room, with Rocky pacing back and forth a timid voice calls out from the northern, locked door. The accent is clearly halfling, "Hello? Is... it over?"

    "Halfling, right?" Vort indicates where the voice came from, "Not the one we're looking for, are we?" Deciding to take the lead on this, Vort goes over and tries to unlock and open the door while saying, "Keep your hands where I can see them."

    Vort finds the door solidly locked. He assesses that it his axe would likely make quick work of it. Or they could look for the key, which wasn't in this room.

    Vort notes that nothing magical lights up in this room that isn't already possessed by the Sentinels.

    OOC:

    Ignore the enemies on the map. I just put writing on it quickly:

    Instead of using his axe, Vort moves back and asks Rocky to remove the door.

    Rocky, patrolling in the larger chamber, returns at the sound of Vort's voice. It takes less than 5 seconds for him to remove the door, hinges, and a fist sized chunk of the wall that is attached to the bottom hinge. He holds the door out for Vort's inspection and further instructions.

    Inside the room, the Sentinels find a 30 X 30 office of sorts, and more closed doors leading deeper in. To one side of the room a small cot is built with a chamberpot beside it. In the center of the room is a fairly nice desk. Chained to the desk is a halfling. His clothes are tattered a bit, but they appeared to be fine at one point. He partially cowers behind the desk at the sight of the elemental, but seems to recognize the Sentinels. He stammers, "The Sentinels? You've returned? Branchala be praised!" He still looks to be afraid, but is trying to compose himself.

    OOC: anyone can roll investigation. DC 15 gets useful info. DC 20 gets more.

    Kalthanar observes the halfling and then examines the room.
