There have been many bad days in the course of Ann Abel's (usually parsed by non Khajiit as Annabelle) life.

The day when she came home from trapping rabbits at age 12 to find her entire family murdered by bandits, the days not too many moons later when she nearly died in the badlands of Elsweyr before she was found and adopted by a band of Khajiit.

Today....today is shaping up to be in a high position on that list of bad days. Her "partner" of these many months, someone she truly believed was trustworthy, proved otherwise. Why else would he drug her, strip her of literally everything that she had to her name, and leave her in a Divines damned CRYPT? She is NEVER working with an Argonian again! Even the worst sugar-tooth among the Khajitt would have had the decency to slit her throat rather than leaving her here to die of deprivation or being eaten alive by the crypt's inhabitants.

Bastard's probably well on his way to Cyrodiil by now.

But she's never been the kind to give in to despair, even if she is naked and unarmed in the midst of the enemy. Well, she WAS unarmed. Turns out you can, with difficulty, bludgeon a draugr to death with a funeral urn. That kill netted her a bow and a quiver full of arrows. The clothes on the draugr, alas, fell to pieces as soon as she tried to get them off. (Fabric doesn't hold up too well over the centuries, it seems.)

She'd experiment with spider webs as clothing, but they might cause a fatal delay in her reactions thank to their stickiness....

She could try the linen wraps on the embalming tables...

"RARGH!"

...nah, too stiff... she'd need to wash it first, and there's no water around.

"HURGH!"

Well, at least the Crypt is not too cold?

"HYA!"

Now who, in Taltos' name, is making that infernal racket?

The tall man (a Nord, clearly) fights with a mix of power and skill, sidestepping a blow and then cleaving down one of the bandits. In the heat of combat, he seems to not have noticed the archer is down, turning to face the last bandit, a fellow with an axe and shield.

The arrow is a surprise for both, but... more for the bandit.

Don't worry, he'll not suffer the wound long: a clean, powerful blow and the man's head tumbles off across the room.

The big Nord turns to face his... helper? Blade still up, and dripping blood.

"...I am sure there's quite a story on why are you naked." He is faintly amused, and does lower his blade.

Of course he's looking.

He's a red-blooded Nord, after all.

"He must be well on his way to Cyrodiil by now." The man watches her while she dresses. "It will be a long chase."

"And what it is, you're looking for?" He remembers Lucan, from his earlier passing through Riverwood.

Or rather, he remembers his sister.

"Einar." He is a bit disappointed that she is all dressed up. "If you and the Argonoan did not meet there on the way in..." he indicates the dead bandits. "They must be newcomers. Maybe friends of the claw-thief."

"There were three more outside, and two in the old tower down the trail."

He could warm her up... "No. The Wizard from Whiterun wants some kind of stone tablet; it's here, he says, probably in the main chamber."

Details, details. The Things are not there right now.

"We could, yes." As she could put an arrow on his back, but... lets give her the benefit of doubt for now. "How deep did you go?"

"The restless dead. I wonder if they simply get bored of sleeping off eternity." The big man shakes head, raising his sword. "If you're ready, let's see what we can find deeper in this... tomb."

Einar takes point, sword ready, taking a torch hanging from a scone on the wall. He carries the large two-handed blade with the ease of a trained warrior, following the winding path on light step and silent feet.

Which is good, it allows them to hear the draugr rising from their funeral alcoves and taking weapons to fight the intruders.

Einar is not good at the 'quiet' part once combat starts: the first draugr takes the torch on the face, while the second is shared in half from right shoulder to left hip, by a powerful blow of the big sword.

But there are more.

Einar is quite fast for a man his size: he sidesteps a draugr's battleaxe and removes its head in a hard cleaving strike.

He continues the movement and goes under an axe and shield guard, removing the legs of another undead abomination.
