((So...I think we resolved our watch issues, anything happen during the night? Yes, I know you're in the middle of APs. Whenever you get a chance is fine.))
Haaaahahahaha!!!!

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pron surfed, weak and weary,
Over many a strange and spurious site of ' hot xxx galore',
While I clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning, and my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour,
"'Tis not possible!", I muttered, "Give me back my free hardcore!

((Oops, I thought you were still trying to decide what to do))

Min'astekal is standing near the far door, peering into the darkness. You are tired from the day's fights, but manage to stay alert. The watch passes tensely, and several times you think you hear something moving in the dark. By the time your watch nears its end your eyelids have turned to lead. You find that you have been gazing vacantly into the murky darkness when you realize that something is amiss. For precious seconds you cannot figure it out, but then realize that the floor of the next room over appears to be moving. You leap up and shout a warning just as the swarm of rats erupts through the doorway.

The rats swarm over Min, who takes 1 point of damage, however, they don't seem interested in attacking her. Instead, they flow past her into the room, spreading out across the floor before moving towards the opposite exit (that the party entered from).

Fenbar and Reikel are awakened by Min's shout of alarm, but, still in a haze of sleep, they are unable to react quickly as the rats flood the room.

((Min can take one turn. Fenbar and Reikel are unable to act yet.))

The rats continue their headlong rush through the room, their claws tearing through everything in their path. Min marshals the power of the Stone Dragon to shrug off the tiny blows, but Fenbar and Reikel each take 2 points of damage. The chittering swarm exits the room through the door the party entered from.

Fenbar and Reikel are now fully awake and bleeding from dozens of tiny wounds. The two of you barely had a chance to see what it was that attacked you before the rats had hurtled out of the room.

((Whole party now has a chance to act. The rats have exited the room and are apparently moving away from you, about 10 feet into the room you entered from))

Reikel huddles up in the corner and shoots a burst of flame in hopes this gang will actually be damaged...(Entangling, 1 damage, entangled 2 rounds)

(I can't do much against swarms yet. Crossbow only goes so far.) Fenbar, still being out of spells for the day, simply does his best to get out of the way, and then starts to patch his wounds to the best of his ability, with little scraps of his clothes that the rats have shredded.

Min'astekal's crushing blow pulverizes dozens of the tiny beasts, and the remaining few scatter in all directions, quickly disappearing into the darkness. As the rats' squeaking fades into the dark of the tunnels, the only sound that remains is the panting of the party, adrenaline still pounding through you from the sudden attack.

Reikel stays in his corner. "Well...that was entertaining, " he says with massive hyberpole.

The party goes back to sleep in a corner where the rats didn't go.

This time the group manages to rest and refresh their spells without incident.
