Back out of the tunnel entrance so more people can engage in spider stomping.

Alright, cool. So, the spiders are moving slower than you, and so their movement will use a bigger initiative die. So long as you beat their initiative (which seems reasonably likely, though not guaranteed), you can back up "with" them. Since they are a bunch of tiny spiders, you won't engage each other like you would if you were fighting, say, a person or giant spider.

Aghilas moves back from the folks moving back from the entrance/spiders. He stands in front of where one of the bridges comes across.

If the small spiders approach, he will lay the net on them and try to sweep them into the water. If the small spiders do not make it through the stomping, he watches for the larger spiders.

Khawaji will back up and stomp the little spiders. Solomon will stomp spiders as well.

Round 1:

As the tiny spiders begin their advance, Aghilas steps back to give the others room, moving to the edge of one of the bridges, trading places with Hamiya and Solomon, who moves forward to attempt to squash or burn the spiders, and Willow begins to chant and move her arms. Hamiya's vulture leaps from her shoulder with a grim croak, and begins to circle to room. Solomon's monkey screeches and jumps off his shoulder. With a few quick hops, he's dangling from the ladder and vocalizing angrily.

Hamiya:
The vulture caws "Atlach-Nacha! Beware!"

Solomon:
The monkey screeches "What the f__k! You keep those things away! I hate spiders, you son-of-a-b___!"

As the spiders advance, Khawaji and Hazrahi step back to give them room. Jaskar is caught somewhat flat-footed, and dozens of small spiders begin crawling up his legs as he retreats. Hamiya waves her torch at the spiders, but she doesn't get it quite low enough, and just illuminates the horde of vermin skittering across the floor. Khawaji and Solomon try to stomp on the spiders, but their feet just get covered in spiders which begin to climb up their legs. The spiders quickly find ways to get under their clothes, giving all of them painful little pinprick bites (Jaskar, waving a torch at them, takes 1 point of damage, Khawaji and Solomon take 2 points of damage from spider bites)). Glowing symbols begin swirling around Willow.

Hazrahi finds that smashing a warhammer on tiny little spiders is not terribly effective. He scrapes it along the ground hoping to crush them. Though he kills a few, his hammer comes away from the ground with several uncrushed spiders, as well. He is able to shake them off before they climb down it to sting him, fortunately. Jaskar finds better success with his torch, and is able to burn several of them (1 damage).

Willow completes her spell, and four Bedi warriors materialize on the opposite side of the spiders. They are lightly armored, but each one is holding a spear and a lit torch.

The small spiders continue to swarm out of the northern opening, and spread out. At their current speed, they will likely cover the area north of the stream by the end of the next round.

Hazrahi calls out, Back up the ladder! Let the summoned warriors fight!

The paladin keeps crushing spiders with his hammer.

Let's get out of here unless someone has oil and can burn the spiders in here. Hazrahi will cover the retreat and leave next round.

Jaskar and Hamiya will retreat to the bridges over the stream and continue to attempt to burn any spiders that come close.

How deep is the stream? If it is shallow we can stand in it and should be safe from attack...

Hamiya lets out a series of shrieks and whistles to indicate to her vulture to stay away from the spiders.

The stream is 3-4 feet deep. You could stand in it, but it might be a little awkward to fight in it.

Willow will command the warriors to burn the spiders, before also retreating up the ladder.
Yes! Torches! Burn the spiders! But try not to burn the webs if at all possible. But definitely burn the spiders!

Round 2
As the spiders advance, the group retreats, while sending in Willow's conjured warriors to try to burn the spiders out.

The berserkers do their best scraping their torches along the ground. Several spiders are burned, and they are able to clear away the spiders on their side of the opening (2 damage) but they have not been able to keep the spiders from crawling on them, and they suffer minor bites (1 damage to each berserker).

Hamiya and Jaskar join Hazrahi in trying to stop the spiders at the bridge, while Hamiya's vulture circles over their heads, cawing. The pair holding torches feel that they are more successful in repelling the oncoming mass, but the spiders reach the edge of the bridge, and look like they will be continuing to expand over it. Jaskar is still suffering from the bites of the spiders that got under his clothes (Jaskar takes 1 damage))

Hamiya::
"Brawk! Beware! Thanatos is here! Death!"


Khawaji, Solomon and Willow make a break for the ladder. Solomon gets there first, and gets up the ladder far enough for Khawaji to grab hold at the bottom. Willow is left beside the ladder wishing they would move quicker. Solomon's monkey screeches angrily from his perch on the stairs, and jumps onto Solomon's back, swatting at the spider's on him. Unfortunately, Khawaji and Solomon are both still beset by small spiders climbing on them, and Solomon's bites are feeling especially awful, perhaps because his clothing is not as protective (Khawaji and Solomon each take 1 damage).

Solomon:
"Oh sh--! Don't worry, Sol! We've got you,
Just get up here, quick! You can do it!"

Is the ongoing damage to Jaskar the result of continued biting? If so, he will put his torch on the ground, and hop in the shallow part of the stream, and brush/slap the spiders on him. If it is due to venom, he will just keep burning spiders

Does Hamiya have any idea what her vulture is trying to convey? She will also keep burning spiders from the bridge.

It's damage from bites by additional spiders that are still crawling on you. It's not a single animal/monster you're fighting, but thousands of these little things.

Hamiya understands her vulture to be "barely" intelligent. Smarter than an animal, but dumber than a human, it sees things in terms of the spirit governing them... it freaked out about Atlach-Nacha the spider spirit when the spiders came out, and Thanatos the death spirit. That either means it thinks somebody's going to die, or something dead has arrived.

Jaskar will drop his torch on the bridge and jump in shallow water to prevent more spiders getting on him. He will then attempt to kill the spiders biting him.

Hamiya will continue burning spiders.

Willow will continue to try to get up the ladder. Hopefully in front of the wave of little spiders. Hopefully the Beserkers finish off the spiders soon.

Khawaji and Solomon will both head up the ladder. Once out they will try to make sure no spiders get out.

Round 3

Realizing that the spiders are continuing to bite him, Jaskar jumps in the water to prevent additional spiders from getting on him. The summoned warriors, along with Hamiya, having figured out a good way to burn the spiders, work together enthusiastically, and manage to destroy enough of them that the threat from the spiders is very much diminished (1 damage, 1 damage, 2 damage, 3 damage).

Khawaji and Solomon and Willow make it up the stairs safely. At the top, they wait to make sure no other spiders are coming up.

Those down below notice that the webs have started moving, as if something large is about to come through!

Hazrahi continues to squash spiders.

Are we going to try to fight the bigger spider? Or are we in full retreat?

I was assuming the folks retreating were doing so because they did not have a good tool for tiny spider killing? I think we should be trying to save the children of possible.

Jaskar shouts We are turning the tide on the spiders! But something bigger is coming!

If the baby spiders are clear, he will climb out of the water, leave his torch on the ground, and prepare to use his bow.

Aghilas smiles briefly at the movement in the web, looking around the room for a path to avoid the small spiders, and those fighting them, but be able to charge the opening in the wall with the net.

After falling back, perhaps Aghilas can re-cross the bridge on the other side of the room?
