We just need to ensure we band together; if we assault any particular flank, I'll likely cover the rear to ensure a chance of turning some foes away, which will leave the main frontal assault to Willhem and Vincent
If we fail to carve a path through, they would collaspe in on us from the sides. Given the terrain fleeing once we engage is worse off than fleeing now, and increases the risk of losing an ally to the skeletal horde....
You have a Cleric on the right side who may be more interested in bashing skeletons than turning them (only going by what he PMed me when I discussed his Charisma Attribute) so we will have to see what he decides!
Tuned_Out has his Paladin at the end of the right line behind Tohmas (east) and from what I am hearing the Paladin would attempt turning the Skeleton Pirates that are coming from the south (depends if he is successful and will see how many he turns if successful) which is the best strategy from his position!
Meanwhile, all 3 groups are steadily advancing against the Party of Ten!
Posted, hope spells help. Hope Areldor does good for all. Have a good night. I will read the finding on the morrow. Edited my post, just use the hounds and mist if need. I guess the spell caster is going go down swinging.

What was supposed to be a 'Short Post' became Much Longer than previously planned today!
It would have become Much Longer if I had included italicized quotes and descriptions from each player who had posted over the past few days!
I just tried to include the most pertinent parts to the UpDate, not intentionally slighting anyone!
I have NPCed Crow according to what I perceived to be true during the beginnings of this adventure!
NPCed Bartimeous as I did not hear from Salvator in response to a PM Message!
You have until Wednesday to post in the QnA the actions your character will be taking until the Skeleton Pirates are totally eliminated and the Seekers (hopefully) survive!
My Next UpDate will be sometime from Thursday on into the weekend, depending upon if I join a work crew for Tornado Relief either Thursday, Friday or Saturday!
I will be on a work crew for Tornado Relief tomorrow (Saturday), so in the meantime everyone is free to Post in the Game Thread anything pertaining to the events up to and including the Skeleton Pirates current position in relation to each of the Players Characters!
Therefore, My Next UpDate Will Include the Conclusion of Your Current Battle Against the Skeleton Pirates; While Possibly Setting the Stage for Your Next Decision on Seeking Treasure!
Vincent plans on staying close to Willem, as well as keeping up the defensive with his shield and striking at any skeleton who gets within range of his sword. Once the group is done he'll double back to help cover anyone who plans on escaping through the gap they hopefully make.
Willem will try to lead an attack on the now smaller group of skeletons which I think is the group they were going to attack anyways. It's the utmost importance that we make sure they're all dispatched before the other skeletons get into combat with us.
also will try to fight near vincent, and will two hand the broadsword the whole time (not sure if there's a two handed fighting bonus like in DnD)
