Roszroon smiles and shakes her head, "Eh, I don't get half the words you people are saying. Let's just fight!" With that, combat is joined once more. The party wastes no time in getting back into the action.
Marc and Zephyr promptly fall upon Roti. He manages one more light cut against Zephyr with his long sword, but their blows send him reeling. In particular, Zephyr strikes with exceptional speed and ferocity. His body literally begins to ooze a strange, glowing mist. The half-elf seems to be prone to this sort of thing lately, so you take it in stride, but his manner is so threatening that two of the gang members faint in dread at the sound of his ululations.
Noxias's conjured sphere of fire revolves around the melee and bowls down Roti. His armor chars and catches fire, and he briefly lets out a hoarse scream of pain and frustration before expiring.
"Aw Roti, that wasn't a good way to go," says Roszroon. She raises her voice and calls out behind her, "Listen you tufers! If you want to live through this, at least get that elf wizard taken care of!" Obediently, they move into position, but fear or haste spoils their aim and none of their weapons fly true.
Roszroon starts to strike about randomly. It could be taken for a sign of desperation, but her demeanor is still unperturbed. One of her blows forces Zephyr backwards a step and she quickly moves forward to within striking distance of Marc and Noxias.
