The drawbridge creaked as Karsk started lifting it up again in an attempt to keep the wild vampires from crossing the moat into the town itself.
Nazo in a drunken rage flew to one of the vampires near Barinthasheer. The vampire, still rattled from the dragon’s attack, never saw her coming and she speared him through with the glowing celestial silver blade, turning it into dust.
Vik shot another of his light globes out over the drawbridge toward the advancing vampires and then pried the helmet off of the downed Samson and shoved a sunlight pebble inside before sealing it up.
The Samson thrashed and screeched, smoking a bit at the seams before it lay still.
“NO! I will kill you, you Cockney bastard!”
came a scream of rage.
Charlemagne lands in the sunlight by the gate, shouting at the mob of vampires charging across the drawbridge. It seems to make some of them pause, but not for long. The head on his sword sizzled and ashed in the sunlight.
The vampire by the entrance to the barn, who’s head Charlemagne had taken to the gate and ashed, twitched. There was a sickening sound as the head grew back and it crawled to its feet. It looked around, into the window of the barn, and grinned.
There was a loud roar, and then Toad crashed out of the barn. The giant rhino-buffalo leapt easily over the Big Boss and charged toward the gate, swinging its dangerous claws at both Vik and Squire Reynold, though both managed to avoid the sharp claws that could gut robot armor.
Near Karsk, the head of the wild vampire body rolled to its body and seemed to magically reattach. The vampire snarled as it stood and pounced on the civilian standing next to the simvan. The civilians scream was cut short as his throat was violently ripped out by the vampire’s jaws, spraying Karsk with hot, fresh blood as the vampire eyed him next, dropping the body and stepping forward.
The remaining vampire near Barinthasheer saw much easier prey than a dragon and charged at Nazo.
The mass of vampires charging on the bridge rushed through the gates. One of them attacks Novice Nara, but the young acolyte manages to dance away. Another attacks Charlemagne, who stands in his way, but he misses as well. The third makes it through the sunlight and up to Squire Reynold, but seems to disoriented by his smoking flesh to attack. The fourth manages to get through the sunlight as well and rushes at Vik, but he can’t land the blow on the techno-wizard. Two more wild vampires rush through, one getting to Vik, but also seems disoriented by the sunlight.
