Before people's lives depend on it, lets be sure we have this straight.
Two shrine guards at the entrance door (orange dots). Torchbearer, Sanjesh hiKetalal (dwayanu), Zharkan hiKetalal (thorswulf), Kevuk hiKetalal ( calithena ) in front of them (left to right) with Kevuk nearest the guard commander.
Gereshma hiShiggoth ( bert ) has moved to confront the shrine priest.
There is a chance that Gereshma and Kevuk can attack with surprise. (also the other warriors if they are "active". If they are not "active" the Caller needs to state what they are doing, and they get no surprise.)
Roll a D6 for surprise, those that get a chance. =

Kevuk's swing missed the guard commander as he danced to the side. He had caught Gereshma's intent as quickly as Kevuk. "For the glory of Chiteng!" he yelled as he returned Kevuk's blow with one of his own. Not startled by the yell, Kevuk avoided the sweep of blade. =
Kevuk cuts and thrusts, looking for opportunities to bring his foes down. His eyes flicker nervously to the priests, wondering whether they are wise to keep fighting; but he will stay in the battle with his lineage-brothers until the magickers decide otherwise...
Hrunal hears Gereshma, looks back, and is dismayed to see that things are not going quickly or well. He turns, draws a dagger, and darts towards the back of the Chiteng priest, looking for vulnerable place to cut or stab.
ooc: Greentongue, you can roll for me. I get +1 to hit for my Guile.

Hrunal's lack of warrior training showed as he attempted to attack the priest with his dagger. The priest was able to maneuver out of the way of both his and Gereshma's attacks.
Meanwhile, the melee at the door showed no clear advantage for one side or the other. Imalcho almost tripped over himself as he realized standing against an armored warrior while wearing chlen-hide chain mail could be hazardous to his health.
While the guards were inspired by their chant, it didn't seem to have helped them much, yet.
Kevuk can describe his own mighty blow against Evil. =
Kevuk wins the upper hand in this round of battle, though the commander he stands in against is a seasoned warrior, and the damage he does is more cosmetic than deadly. Still, it is good to be holding his own...now if only those priests would come up with a plan...

Sanjesh landed a solid blow against his opponent which seemed to drive him berserk. The guard staggered Sanjesh with a flurry of crushing blows of his own.
When Imalcho distract the second guard, Zharkan shoved his blade into a armor joint. The pain caused his opponent to miss with his counter strike. However, Imalcho was unable land a solid blow of his own to help, without getting in Zharkan's way.
Following first blood with a more telling blow, Kevuk attempted to overwhelm the commander's defenses. An experienced opponent, the commander deflected some of Kevuk's fury and pounded through his defense. Kevuk was knocked backwards by a massive blow from the commander's mace.
Meanwhile, Gereshma danced left then attacked right while Hrunal feinted to draw the priest's attention. Their ploy worked. The priest crumpled as Gereshma's blow landed on his collar bone, just below the edge of his fancy helm.
Private to Kevuk: You see a mailed hand pulling back the tapestry behind the commander. =
Hrunal is getting worried. He was startled by Gereshma's attack, and now the only path to success that he can see is for the warriors to kill all the guards quickly before anyone else comes and the alarm is given. That doesn't seem to be working out too well, but there is little he can do, his sorcery has small effect on melee. He guesses he could try an Illusion of something dire, but that hasn't worked very reliably in the past. He wonders if he should go look for the kid, so we can leave more quickly when the fight is done.

Hrunal casts his Illusion spell. He'll take on the semblance of a highly venomous snake-headed Qol, with poison dripping from its fangs and toxins glistening from its blades as well. He hopes to cut or stab an opponent and induce shock from the illusion of poisoning.
