"I got him, " Garrett called out and strode over ready to sink his rapier into the opponent.

"No, " Larson barked. Before anyone asked why, he added. "Look at them! Look at their robes!"

All the robes were white. They all had the same emblem, a smoky, skeletal figure with horns.

"White Wraith, " Garrett breathed. "We have to kill them."

As Larson struggled with the man, whose strength seemed to grow rather than wane, he twisted and brought both himself and the man down into a smashed pew. The wood skittered about the floor.

"No, they might know, " Larson heaved and wrestled while the aged coot clawed a tapestry off the wall in an effort to stand. "They might know about my family. Damn you, old man, just go down. I don't want to kill you."

"Lagos wants you dead, " the old cultist cackled. "Lagos wants you all dead!"

Frothing at the mouth, the man stood up in one motion, forcing himself free from Larson's grip. Seanessy and the Dude eyed each other. Both hacked at the cultist's legs. The blows made their opponent stumble back, and Garrett stabbed into the man's belly.

Larson finally accepted that the man had to be killed, or at the very least injured. He snatched his axe from the ground and swung horizontally from the opponent's rear.

Garrett had a sudden insight, one of the mages had claimed it was too late, and the fencer figured they were about to find out why. "Let's run."

"Aye, " Seanessy howled.

Following Garrett, who quickly checked his map, they started a mad dash from Atjibur. After a left turn down a lit corridor, and a right turn towards an etched entryway, the floor behind them suddenly exploded in an array of stone and debris. A horrible shrieking sound stopped them in their tracks; huge, black legs covered in tiny hairs protruded from the opening.

"You two, run, " Larson barked. "Dude, fight with me."

The fighter charged off with axe in hand to swipe at the legs. Momentarily stunned, the Dude steeled himself and raced up behind to slash at the legs, too.
