You fail to dodge the halberd and soon feel that the years have not dulled the weapon at all.
It drives down onto your shoulder with great strength.
You now have a masterwork halberd embedded on your shoulder.
A quick look tells you it's bleeding quite profusely, a healing might be in order.
In other news, the general only has a dagger to attack with anymore.>>2878
Again you fumble with your shield and even manage to hit your own head with it.>>2879
It does not work as you drive your sword clean through a rib bone and the holy energy is discharged onto the ceiling.
The skeletal soldier swings it axe down at you, though it only cuts the rim of the hat.>>2880
You hit the general in the back, but he only seems annoyed by it.
He grasps the handle of his halberd and begins pulling.
It seems to be stuck in a bone.
He's still open for attack.>>2881
The guard screams in agony as his soul is released to the otherworld.>>2883
You server the hand holding the halberd.
The general's eyes burn blue again.
There's one skeleton guard alive and on top of Pale Dusk.
The general is hurt.
Auria has a halberd stuck on her shoulder.
She will bleed out unless healed or you end the combat within 3 turns.
