Saucix steps up to form at least his part of the Shepherd's Formation, and attacks one of the beasts past Gerald.

Rolled Melee 14+1 vs. AC, rolled damage 3+1

He slices its throat open, and it falls, releasing another disgusting wave of odour. Saucix and Adarim keep their cool, but Gerald retches, Logan throws up half digested meat, Gregor is overwhelmed and drops to his knees coughing and gasping, Nisos collapses on the floor vomiting then falls unconscious. 1 damage

Gregor's fit passes, but he can't do anything else this turn.

Acting quickly, Adarim pulls out a jug of oil, stuffs a strap of cloth torn from his sleeve into it, and lights it on fire. He then throws the improvised bomb past Gerald into the mass of the creatures.

Rolled Ranged 11+1 vs. AC, rolled damage 4+0

One beast is hit right in the head, burning oil spatters in all directions. It flails in panic for a moment before falling down into the flames. There is no great release of stench this time. Two other beasts are hit by the spatters. One is lit up just as badly and falls, the other is just singed and runs screaming. The tunnel in front of Gerald becomes blocked by a patch of burning oil. The beasts squeal and back away from the fire.

And then, behind you, eleven more beasts emerge from the darkness.

Situation:
Spoiler: show
Saucix: 8/8 HP, spells and prayers left: Cure Light Wounds

Gerald: 6/8 HP

Gregor: 4/6 HP

Nisos: 0/1 HP, spells left: Magic Missile, Charm Person, Protection from Evil, unconscious

Adarim: 6/7 HP

Logan: Mostly healthy

In front of you:
Burning oil
30 fat beasts, approximately
5 sleeping fat beasts

Behind you (the way you came):
11 fat beasts
Remus: Harry... I'm a werewolf.
Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

All things considered, I'd say that turned out well.

11 is better than 30. Maybe we should focus attacks on them and bolt.

Push through them, get them all on one side, then drop another firebomb.

I'll help push through, but we should really avoid slicing any more open if we can. I can handle losing a few hitpoints, but I can't lose any more turns or we're gonna get boned.

Arrows will release less of that smell than slashes, that's my alternative.

I'm not sure, but we can assume slashing releases a lot of smell from the creature's body because it opens alot of it up.

Now an arrow should just penetrate the creature and leave a small entry wound. I hypothesize that this will only release a small amount of gas.

I have a dagger and a short sword. We're in the thick of it, so I don't have enough time to make an improvised weapon of my rope.
Fisticuffs it is, then.
Let's make a push for the 11 and get as many of them with the 30, as Gerald suggests. Bottleneck their approach and stand to with knuckles and bludgeons. If we need to, we bolt.

Saucix releases an arrow at the fat beasts coming from behind.

Rolled Ranged 20+2 vs. AC, rolled damage 3+1

The arrow hits the creature right in the eye and continues through the back of its head, striking another beast behind it. (3+1 damage) Both of them fall over dead. There is a waft of stench from them, but not strong enough to cause a reaction in you.

Gerald takes point as you go back down the tunnel, and he starts pushing through the beasts with his shield.

Rolled Melee 8+2 vs. Fort

Though short, the creatures are broad and heavy. And many. They refuse to budge.

Gregor aims a punch at a beast trying to get at Gerald's flank.

Rolled Melee 16-2 vs. AC, rolled damage 3-2

He hits the creature in the face, and it staggers backwards.

Adarim carries the unconscious Nisos, I assume.

Two beasts claw at Gerald's armor with their long fingers. One of them manages to find the opening behind his knee. With a lucky scratch, Gerald becomes unbalanced and falls over. 2 damage

Spoiler: show
Saucix: 8/8 HP, spells and prayers left: Cure Light Wounds

Gerald: 4/8 HP, on the ground

Gregor: 4/6 HP

Nisos: 0/1 HP, spells left: Magic Missile, Charm Person, Protection from Evil, unconscious

Adarim: 6/7 HP

Logan: Mostly healthy

In the cave:
Burning oil
30 fat beasts, approximately
5 sleeping fat beasts

In the tunnel:
9 fat beasts
Remus: Harry... I'm a werewolf.
Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

Draw another arrow and fire it at the beasts approaching Gerald.

"Get up you fool."

Adarim
Fashion a dust mask of some sort for good measure. Kick them out of the way, rather than slashing them.

^It's a little late for that^

"Fool? I'm the one keeping these beasts at bay. Now help me up and keep us moving!"

Seriously, don't bother shooting them. push through until we have them all on one side instead of flanking and then we can start dealing with them. Right now we're kinda boned.

(Maybe communicate with my character what you want him to do. I don't think the bat beasts speak English.)

Don't know what's unclear about that.
