Abercrombie couldn't run any further. He stumbled to the ground just as Throgg descended on him.
"Wait, wait," Throgg said, standing up straight and planting the tip of his sword in the ground. "Not sure if killing you or capturing you. Wait a second for my friends to catch up."
"Why have you people been hounding me?" Abercrombie complained. The mage's voice was surprisingly high-pitched and whiny.
"You sent a series of undead to kill a bunch of people," Throgg replied. "Ah, here they are now."
Abercrombie got to his feet while eyeing the approaching band. "Four against one. This seems like it would go poorly for me in a fair fight."
"So help me," Miranda said quickly, pointing a threatening finger, "if you cackle and say 'That's why it's not a fair fight!' we will just kill you now."
