When Rostam is awakened by the alarm, he will grab his scimitar, bow and arrows and get on deck. He does not bother to don his armor.

I'm holding for YC, although realistically there is not a lot he can do.

In the meatime the captain shoots one of the bats with his rifle and and hits it, and it veers off, apparently too injured to stay fighting. Others spend the round waking up.

The unarmed pirate you had as an extr pair of eyes starts to flee below the main deck.

YC, I will hold for you another day and then assume you waited until they were in melee range.

Ah, the curse of 2500 posts. Many games peter out at around his time...

Well, the round ends and the bats move forward at full speed towards you. They are on you at the end of the round.

You have the initiative. The captain drops his rifle and attacks with his sword - he hits and deals with another bat, which dies. There appear to be 5 more. Maju has 1 bat, the captain 2, and YC 2.

Everyone who was asleep is now in their 2nd round of waking up and getting ready.

I need orders from YC and Maju. The unarmed pirate has fled below, yelling.

Was Maju able to find a torch?

DM: Yes. You now have one lit. The whistle does not appear to have done any harm to the bats although it sure woke everyone else up.

Jaali, hearding the whistle, grabs his pistol and get out sneakily of his room.

Jaali would like to move to the deck and hide, to check out what's going on.

Maju will simply attempt to use the torch to keep the bats away (I'm not sure how this would play out in game terms - maybe an attack?)

Sorry, I've been out of it lately. But I'm back now!

YC will take out his staff and attack the nearest bat while yelling for the others.

Maju waves the torch around but the bat keeps coming anyway. It attacks him but misses, not wanting to get too close to the torch.

Yuan Cheng takes out one of his bats with a casual swat from the staff of Nantenbo and feels like he can hardly miss. (Then unfortunately he does miss with his second attack.) The remaining bat attacks him and does him a single hit point of damage.

Everyone else finishes getting up.

At the end of the round the remaining 4 bats make their morale check and ecide to fight on. They must be hungry...

New round.

Jaali and Rostam both run up the stairs, using 20 feet of movement to do so. Several other characters are also coming up the stairs behind them.

Jaali finishes his round by hiding.

Rostam may finish his round by firing his bow, or, move to help the captain with his scimitar. The captain still has 2 bats on him.

I need full actions from Maju and Yuan-Cheng to end the round, as well as Rostam's decision. Then we go to the next round.

With no other options, Maju will continue with the whistle and the torch.
