The hunter does as Taeron suggested and wills to move as quickly as possible through the ethereal plane, towards the spot where Livia is about to be sacrificed. As he does this, he notes if there are any other drow present, and the general visible layout of the cave.

More importantly, he tries to make sure what their best escape route back to the the barbarian and the path to the surface is. He stops to the side of the altar, and awaits for Taeron's diversion to begin.

*Protected with various divine wards and moving unnaturaly fast, the barbarian emerges from the tunnel - he tries to get the attention of the drow in the room - yelling out a fierce battlecry and pointing his axe at the priestess above the girl*

*His main goal is to win time for the hunter to get into position to strike - and to draw all incoming "fire" towards himself. He tries to make his way towards the priestess - battling through her bodyguards should they attack him*

**Alerted by the ruckus the male drow rushes Taeron with a flurry of strikes from his twin kukris**

**Meanwhile the dark chant comes to an abrupt end when the priestess shrieks like a mad woman**

The hunter takes the opportunity Taeron creates to will himself out of the ethereal plane, and swings his macuahuitl at the female drow in a flurry, seeking to dismount her from the altar and incapacitate her if possible, or at least force her to retreat.

Mictlali remains behind Taeron, ready to lend tooth and claw against the male drow.

*Taeron tries to evaluate the skill of the warrior based on his first flurry of blows. He does his best to make it seem like he can be overpowered, if the drow team up on him - trying to make sure they focus on him. His eyes dart towards the priestess and the hunter behind her - the moment the hunter strikes, Taeron would do his best to reach him as soon as possible*

**The second the hunter lands a hit on the priestess she dissipates into nothingness.**

**The male fighter sidesteps and disappears from sight only to reappear in Taeron's back, striking viciously**

**The Priestess' laughers can be heard from across the room where she summons a few giant spiders to attack Taeron effectively surrounding him**

**Meanwhile, the girl his sobbing and screaming for help**

Seeing the priestess vanish, the hunter turns his attention to the girl.

"We come from Shadowdale, we will get you out of here. Do not struggle with this hunter, we must flee at once."

Hun-Balam once more performs the ritual of Polymorph Self, turning into an Umber hulk. The creature uses his sharp claws and pincer like mandibles to break the bonds tying the girl to the altar, if they prove too strong he attempts to break the altar itself.

Mictlali jumps on the male drow and swipes and bites at the attacker.

**The male drow is caught off guard by Mictlali and drops his guard wincing at the sharp pain produced by animal's claws. Effectively defenseless he looks up to Taeron defiantly**

*The barbarian shifts his stance slightly - almost unnoticably to the untrained eye. He uses his weight to gain momentum and switches from an all out defense into a rage-filled attack. The axe follows a large arc and as many times before in countless other battles - it goes straight for the side of the man's skull with the intent to finish him off*

Get her out of here!

*He yells towards the hunter*

**The Male fighter falls dead as spiders threaten Taeron with their venomous bites**
**The Priestess casts a spell sending tremors throughout the underground complex. Soon the cave begins to collapse. She immediately uses a ring of power and turns ethereal**

The Umber hulk craddles the girl in one arm, and hunched over so as to protect her from falling rocks, advances towards Taeron.

Mictlali turns tail upon feeling the tremors, and retreats toward the surface, leaving the barbarian to face the spiders on his own.

*Taeron fights with savage fury the Uthgardt barbarians are known for, trying to chop the spiders and make way for the advancing Umber hulk. The only thing he tries to if he gets a breather is any form of a badge, emblem or any other means of identification from the fallen drow - at least enough to figure out which house the drow belongs to, or which patron he follows*

The Umber hulk barrels past Taeron and the spiders, towards the small entrance that they came through. The creature does not look at the barbarian, lest he become confused, but signals behemently with his free hand in a "follow me" motion. Protecting the girl he carries tightly against his chitinous body, the polymorphed ranger claws at the small entrance one handed.

His intent is tunneling slowly towards the expanded pathway they made on their way in, not collapsing his work behind so that Taeron may follow. At least, he hopes tunneling a ways outside the cave will lessen the impact of the collapsing ceiling, and his chitinous frame can keep the girl from gettin crushed.

*Taeron judges the situation quickly and mutters a curse in Illuskan. He sweeps around with his axe to create a bit of room - moving back from the spiders. He whispers a few short words, drawing up on the strength of his patron*

*Moments later a massive barbarian with his shield held high joins the umber hulk - Taeron grew in size and apparently - in strength as well.*

*Should the spiders try to hamper their escape in any way - Taeron would stand against them in the tunnel, blocking the path and fighting them off, urgint the Umber hulk to get the girl to safety. He would have a plan of his own...*

**The Umberhulk manages to progress enough not to be buried alive and brings the girl to the surface.**

**Taeron however is not so lucky, large boulders are not falling, the escape is cut off and the prospect of dying crushed under tons of rocks is not very eminent**

*Taeron looks around, trying to evaluate the situation. He looks back and forth - if the cavern behind him looks a bit more stable, he would go that way. If it seems he has no chance of getting away in time, he might have to use his last resort - otherwise he'd head deeper into the cavern*

Mictlali dutifully awaited her companion's arrival at the entrance to the underground passage, guarding the entrance against any curious bugbear that might pass by.


Once reaching the surface, the hunter resumes his original form and checks Livia to ensure she has no physical harm. Hun-Balam introduces her to Mictlali, and commands the feline to guard over her. The ranger still wields his weapons, and the trio await for a while to see if Taeron managed to follow them.

** the exit collapsed. Taeron suffered serious injuries from the collapsing boulders but he is alive. Now though Taeron is facing thousands of pounds of rock between him and the surface.
... That or venturing down further in the underdark.**

*Taeron sighs as he crawls out of the debris. he sighs and mutters a few curses in Illuskan as he does so - his injuries are quite bad.
He ignites a small lantern and sets it on one of the stones. In the light of the lantern, he looks over his plate armor and the rest of his gear. He patches up most of the wounds with salves and bandages and then searches around - trying to find the male drow*

Where are you you little bastard *he mutters under his breath*

**The male drow can be found partially under collapsed rocks, his body broken, his life ended. He doesn't carry anything of import that would give out his identity except the broken pendant for which only a chain remains.**

The ranger, upon seeing the Taeron did not manage to follow them outside and after waiting for a fairly reasonable ammount of time, decides that they should move on towards Shadowdale.

"Remember the sacrifice you have witnessed today, young one... my fellow warrior fought valiantly so that we could escape. The Lord of the Hunt allowed us to prevail over the Ancient Ones, praise his savage fury in thanks for your survival. Rage against those that wronged you, but know that you are not alone. Mourn the dead, but remember that you alone were fierce enough to survive. You did what you could, and had to. You refused to be prey... you were not weak.

This hunter and Mictlali helped you once, we will help you again, for the Lord of the Hunt will bless your determination. From today onward, you are in our charge.

You were very brave and strong, you live because of your strength. Hard times will be ahead of you. Persist through them. For now, let us return to Shadowdale...  I must prepare to return after resting, for I must at least find if Taeron perished, or survived the collapse of the cave."


The bronze skinned man gives the girl rations and water, and offers a ride on Mictlali's back for the trek to Shadowdale. He remains vigilant on the trail, so as to keep Livia safe from further hardship for the time being.

*Taeron takes at least the chain and makes sure the drow will be a bit harder to bring back to life. He then turns to the rubble blocking the path and with a few words, he vanishes into nothingness - passing through the rocks in ethereal form*

**Upon entering the Ethereal plane Taeron can notice the Drow priestess backing away toward the drow city a large satisfied grin showing on her face. Glad she's escaped with her life maybe?**
