Gridell gathered his otter slingbeasts and made a dash for the other side of the abbey where he found a group of ferrets attempting to climb the wall they were soon repelled with volley after volley of stones and gridell sent the otters to patrol the other walls before reporting back to Stripetail

"Good work Gridell. It is as I suspected, they're trying to get in another way. We'll send reinforcements to the other side as soon as possible. We'll post guards on every side of the abbey and rotate watch every few hours." he said as the battle raged on. Stripetail struck down many verminwith his staff, and the woods rang with thier cries, as they ran in every direction trying to douse the flames that were burning them and setting other vermin on fire as they ran.
Tibb ducked down. He looked around franticly. He soon spoted a broken long bow. Quickly he ran & picked up the broken bow. He took the string & tied it to his walking stick. He took an arrow & strectching it against the string of his make shift bow. He fired at a group of foxes. Stricking one in the arm. "I missed!" Tibb said as he ducked & set another arrow to his bow.

Stripetail let loose another blast of magic, the wall of the abbey danced with shadows cast from the alight vermin. " "rhita will be furious tonight after this setback.' Stripetail smiled as he continued blasting away. Noticing Tibbarius, he called out 'Tibbarius, they're a small group of vermin to your left. Take them out."
"Yes Sir" He shouted as he stood up & began to shoot arows at the group of Vermin. This time taking carefull aim he managed to strike & Slay the majority. The rest fled towards the army. They were however slain before they could even reach the closest vermin. THe mouse quickly ducked another volley of arrows.
Before Tibarius could move to retaliate Sophia was in the centre of the group who had shot lashing out with her manacle chain and long knives they fell away and she bounded effortlessly up a tree and over the wall. She had gone to spy on the enemy "Rhita has set up camp where St Ninians once stood She is commanding her forces from the backlines of her forces well out af range of any danger"She reported

"Figures. She is following in the tradtion of Slagar and Cluny. Although Ninians was burnt down a long time ago, the place still has an evil reputation. Perfect for Rhita" Stripetail said. "I expect she'll call back her horde for the night soon, but we'll post a lookout just in case."

Good idea. I'll be along to deal with the more seriously wounded. go quickly" Stripetail volleyed more magic into the horde. He could see many of them fleeing from the abbey, the ground was covered with the bodies of dead vermin. the sick stench of burned flesh hovered in the air.

"well, we've survived the first onslaught, and the number of our wounded is relatively small. that's the good news. The bad news is that this struggle has only begun. I will be open to any suggestions.' Stripetail said
Tibb was standing in front of the tapestry of Martin the Warrior. He looked at the warrior mouse. He had never seen such a mouse. He just stood there admiring the warrior mouse in the picture. Until he lost all track of time.
