You best hurry up Arimm
Tyrvia instinctively took a step back as Istanius moved over to join the fight, his armour clanking as he moved. Her eyes were fixed upon the battle and she was barely aware of Arimm finishing his knot on the pillar. Canicus went forward again, after dodging the deathly arc of the undeads weapon. This time however Canicus did not strike the enemy, finding the skeletons shield instead. Seeing an opportunity Malagaar leapt forward aiming a blow at the skeletons jaw, his opponent was fast though and he avoided the blow and shrugged off the second weaker attack.
It was the Skeletons chance now to do some damage. It raised its sword in a arc of deathly fire and bought it down with terrible strength. First it took Malagaar in the chest droplets of blood spraying form his chest and littering the floor. Next it caught Canicus but this time only half as powerful. Istanius charged forward next, ready to defend his own honour and that of his brotherhood.
Istanius charged forward letting out a roar before crashing into his foe shield first. Despite all of his effort the, now maniacal, undead champion shrugged it off neatly before insulting the young Cavaliers order.
Tyrvia had to do something, she couldn't stand idly by watching her fellow blades get slaughtered. Tyrvia saw Canicus as the biggest threat to the skeleton and hastily began to cast Guidance upon him, using her own will on top of his strength to guide his next swing.

((I hate to have to rewrite this; but if I must I will, I looked to see what Guidance did, and only after I finished the post did I realize that Guidance is a touch spell. Unless of course you have the familiar delivering, that would involve you getting in harms way to cast it.))
As Tyrvia finished casting her spell Canicus felt the familiar guiding hand of the Divine. Smiling to himself he stepped up again, letting the magic guide him as he swung again at the monstrosity, ready to return the damage it had inflicted upon him. However now with the assassin getting the rope in place Canicus realized he would need to be more careful in order to avoid hitting the rope and burning the delicate silk. His tactical mind also realized that the rope would not hold for long if the foul abomination was able to swing his flaming sword into it. "TRY TO DISARM THE FIEND!!", he shouted, and he swung once again at the beast, this time specifically targeting the sword arm, hoping beyond hope that the blow, along with the divine Guidance, would be enough to crush the bones of the arm, disarming his foe in more than one way.
((usual 2 handed swing, scorching, guidance to attack roll, attempting to either break the arm or force the fiend to drop his blade.))

Istanius felt his anger brew as this skeleton taunted him. Why didn't he buy a mace? In hind site, that would have been a good idea. Istanius had decided though, that his sword would do just fine. And here he was: against a skeleton with his shield.
Istanius realized he needed to defeat this thing quickly, before it slaughtered all of them. Head seen it attack at both Malagaar and Canicus. Then, it had the gall to insult him. A member of the blades, and a follower of the order of the lion. This thing had to be put in it's place.
Istanius heard Canicus shout for him to disarm the skeleton. There was just one problem: Istanius' shield wasn't exactly a good weapon for that. He knew that if he could distract the skeleton, Malagaar and Canicus might have a better chance at it. " Your master must not be very good at necromancy. If he were, he would have never made you. Unless, of course, you were made out of waste." Istanius taunted the skeleton. He readied himself for the attacks that would come. He hopefully had made an opening for his teammates. He drew his sword, knowing he would need his shield for defence. All he had to do was distract.
(OOC, Istanius fight defensively if that is possible. If it is possible, he tries to divert the skeletons attention to himself. If Istanius can attack, He'll use his sword to allow him to have his shield for defence.)
