Alas, Driscoll's dagger wound up clattering off the wall. Possibly not the most productive use of his time.
One can't accuse zombies of learning from experience. Still, Gillet's zombie seemed almost desperate, launching itself at the gnome in a frenzied effort to take a chunk out of him. An attempt which Gillet was able to meet with a dagger to the eye. Removing the head or destroying the brain is, after all, the approved way of disposing of zombies.
Nor did Orson's zombie seem to have learned anything, making another attempt to clutch at him which was easily fended off.
As Tristan and Safiyeh reached the final corner in the passage, they could see two downed zombies, with Orson engaging a third. Unfortunately, far from being over, things were about to heat up.
Under the everpresent moaning, Gillet caught the slap of approaching footsteps. Footsteps coming from behind. Driscoll caught the sound soon after, and was able to turn to meet the rush of another trio of zombies. It was just as well he'd heard them, really. Otherwise he could well have been in deep trouble. As it was, he was barely managing to fend off two of the ravening creatures with his shield.
