This Cursed Door again...
'I hope that worked, for the little ones sake. I'd hate to see him turned inside out or lost inbetween somehow. Well, Enough of that, Looks like I have another chance to crack this puzzle. Better get to it.'

Philbont kneels down at the iron wall and continues his search from where he left off last time, checking the stone cobbles of the floor and testing the cracks with his dagger to see if anything looks like it might be a hidden pressure plate or switch.

Behind him, the sounds of growling are now heard, and suddenly an arm appears through the black shroud, followed quickly by the rest of the monster as it starts to thrash at the people blocking it.
Reggie and Jex fight it off, even as two more push through beside it, the mindless beasts going wild in their attempt to reach and rend the fighters, joined shortly by Pob, swinging at the beasts with abandon.

Jex pushes at the three, trying to force them back down the corridor some, but even his great strength barely shifted them as Harker reappears to grab Jaz and pop back out again.

'Thats good, means Gilberts fine if he's back to get another one. Means Gilbert is working this thing from the outside too. I better get into the fight then.'

One of the arms flailing at the three standing in the doorway manages to catch Pob and score a wound, causing Pob to freeze up and be unable to move.
Harker shows up and seeing the trouble Pob is in, Grabs him next and vanishes. Philbont decides that the boys need help and stops working on the door to move his way in between the two larger fighters, where he can strike at the ghouls without breaking the line. striking at them with his newly acquired hammer, Philbont is amazed at how light it is to wield and how much damage it does to the flesh of the enemy in front of him.

'Blimy, Nice hammer this. Knew soon as I saw it was Dwarven I should take it. Hate to think it wasted in the hands of someone who couldn't appreciate it like a true dwarf.'

Hammering and pushing at the hungering dead, the three of them managed to drive them a little further back down the corridor, but holding off the mindless abominations was starting to take its toll on the two larger ones in the group. Scratched and bleeding, the pair of them refuse to give in, at least until Harker shows up and grabs Reg. startled by that, Philbont glanced around himself and realizes that they were nearly home free! everyone else was gone, and now Harker was making the last few trips to pull the party out of the fire.
Popping out again with Reg in tow, Philbont moves quickly to take up the gap left by him and continues to rain hammerblows upon the monsters before they can move into the gap left by the now safe Reg.
Before he had done more than smash one in the face though, Harker is back, and grimly grabs each of them remaining by the shoulders and pops out again...
