They all got in the manor, there was a bugbear and three cloaked people. Kindle rushed the creature, Pwll knocked it out, and Kindle ran upstairs to confront the enemies. Arthur Macduff expected this, and attempted to bring forth the evil entity hiding in Kindle's body.
Meanwhile, Yli attempts to attack one of the other figures - but fails, and he dashes away through a lain deathtrap. Yli activates it, and nearly is killed for his trouble - but the room is on FIRE, now, and soon escapes the room.
Meanwhile, Pwll and Antal attempt to fight the now-conscious bugbear who is revived by mighty feindish power. It nearly kills Antal, but is brought down by Pwll's cunning manuever of surgically removing the rock that held the beast. In more practical terms, he just tore it out with a crowbar. Sometimes it is easy to forget we're talking about a corgi.
Anyway, upstairs, Kindle is possessed by a powerful demon, and Arthur Macduff makes passing reference to an individual named "Sanguinus", referring to him as a Lord. The demon is expelled, however, through the sheer insane WILLPOWER of Kindle's spirit. Arthur draws his blade and attempts to hold off the attacks of both Kindle and Yli as fires surround them, Pwll freeing the hostages they came for while Antal, by now revived by Greybeard, runs up the stairs to assist.
However, he is only in time to watch the villain make a horrific pun, slicing open Kindle's chest deeply while he himself bleeds from multiple wounds doled out by Yli and Kindle.
Antal coldly fires his crossbow and strikes Arthur Macduff in the heart, and, shocked, the nobleman falls from the balcony. But all that lands is a sword and a robe.
Everyone escapes, of course, and they agree: The fight is far from over. They decide to return to town to rest, heal, and plan.
Oh, and somewhere in there, it is revealed that Krysnt is one of Sanguinus's servants, and the other is highly skilled with chemicals.
