Quietly: "Get ready to push some furniture over the opening they make. We'll need to fight off the ones in there, first, or we'll just be stalling."

Elizabeth readies her pistol to shoot through the first opening that is created.

It takes them a good while before a hole opens, and a head peeks up.  It looks around.

Elizabeth takes her shot immediately, before it can say anything:

Attack = 1d20+5 (assuming she's within 30 feet):
Rolled 1d20+5 : 19 + 5, total 24


Damage = 2d6+1
Rolled 2d6+1 : 6, 4 + 1, total 11

It's head explodes like an overripe melon.  There is much screeching below, as it falls backwards.  There are also shots coming from the back.

Can I see into the area from where it came?

By shots from the back, do you mean the area the other humans are defending?

Not without walking over to the hole and shining a light down.

Yes, where the other humans are.

That sounds risky. At this point, Elizabeth reloads, steps back so she's not within grasping reach, and shoots anything else that comes through. It's currently a choke point, but she listens for more scratching.

After taking her first shot, she uses Exploit Weakness (DC 15) to see if she can use Int for her shots instead of Dex.

A ghoul leaps up through the hole, trying to clear the way for others before it is shot.

Assuming she can shoot, Elizabeth takes her next shot:

Attack = 1d20+8
Rolled 1d20+8 : 12 + 8, total 20


Damage = 2d6+1
Rolled 2d6+1 : 6, 4 + 1, total 11


To the group: "Block it off!"

It's head explodes.  People begin moving furniture over the hole after firing a few shots into the dark.

To the group: "Keep an eye out for other intrusions! I'm going to check on the others. I heard shots."

Elizabeth reloads and double-checks to make sure we're not getting snuck up on or overwhelmed.

Edit: when I said people were firing into the dark, I meant the hole in the floor.  My bad.

Elizabeth wants them to try to block the hole, since we can't see into it, and she wants to check on the shots she's hearing from the back.

"Be vigilant for anything unusual. Even inside."

Elizabeth runs back to the room with the floor hole to help out.

OOC: They're in the basement and we're currently on the ground floor, correct? How many floors are there in the building? Does the cellar go under the entire building or just one corner?

There is no basement, other than the cellar, which runs under about half the house.  You are on the ground floor yes.  There are two floors.

"We should look to see if there's enough furniture to barricade part of the house from the half with the cellar."

She drops her voice: "Although my bigger concern if they're under us is fire."

Roughly what time of night is it?
