Romto - Halfling Cleric (of Pelor) 2
Things take a turn for the unexpected when Kieran abruptly announces that he doesn't want to continue with the adventurers. Hoping to recruit more help, the party return to Winterhaven and soon engage with a halfling paladin by the name of Romto. Unphased by Corrash's resistance to his proselytising, Romoto admits he's short of pocket (short of everything in fact) and proposes that he joins them for whatever endeavour they may be engaged in. Perhaps less enthusiastically than he would like, they agree.
Back at the Keep, the group delves into a maze-like, underground crypt. Romto immediately makes his presence felt by finding and sidestepping some sort of glyph inscribed on the floor, and the adventurers unleash everything they have on a group of clustered undead, seemingly unaware of their presence until disturbed. While that attack is successful, a terrible banshee-like scream suddenly echoes around the place, and the sounds of ghoulish shambling erupt from all directions...
