The skeleton warrior sprang out of the darkness, screeching like a banshee. Baldric backed up and successfully fended off its first blow.
“If this is all there is to my test, it will be easy,” he thought.
The creature moved slowly, it’s joints clicking against each other and its armor clanking against itself as it tried to flank him. Baldric’s nostrils filled with the smell of damp mold as the skeleton leaned in close for another attack. The young warrior swung his blade and sent a skull bouncing across the stone floor. The rest of the bones fell to the ground with a clatter.
“Is that all, wizard?” Baldric called out. “Have you nothing more to show me?”
Suddenly the room came alive with the sounds of clicking and clanking, and the darkness filled with the smell of damp mold.
