Aisling was almost going to volunteer to go down and help push the human up, but she saw that the demoness was getting the dog to do something.

She looked down at the other human, wondering if she should offer some light healing, but she usually only cast it on herself only when necessary, and she wasn't sure what was injured on him.  He didn't seem to be seriously injured, but then, she wasn't a trained healer.  She knew about death, and he didn't seem anywhere close to death. 

Her own arm and shoulder was feeling a little over-stretched, but nothing painful.  She suspected humans might have a lower pain threshold than fae, though.

Undecided, she stood back to see what else may happen.

Aisling gritted her teeth a bit after the human popped out.  She hadn't heard any bones popping or cracking, but as he curled up and gasped, she had to figure he was feeling some pain. 

The demoness' strength was impressive.

The Demoness was very strong, doing most of the pulling.  Still, Aisling tried to do her part and keep a firm grip on the human's ankle.

She heard something about his shoulders being stuck.  That didn't sound good.  She kept pulling, though.  Hopefully that wouldn't tear or break anything in the human.

Well, pulling a human out of a hole might be possible.  Aisling was fairly sure she was at least as strong as a human, if not a bit stronger.

She sent her weapons back to Shadow and approached the hole the human was shouting from, amidst the sounds of barking and cat-yowling.

The human was not that far in, since the mounds weren't made to be spacious (not like the huge megalithic-stone barrows of the fae, anyway).

She grabbed an ankle and started pulling, but he was heavier than expected--pretty much dead weight.

Perhaps the Demoness would grab the other ankle...???

Eh... he was coming out slowly.   

Hopefully those undead riders or more of those other spirits weren't going to attack while she was so occupied.

Aisling heard the commotion at one of the mounds.  The animals were sensing some problem.

She didn't think she could do much, especially in such a confined space, but she moved closer anyway.  She still kept an eye out for other threats, but their surroundings seemed quiet enough.

The small ones seemed to have walked from the Tavern right into the ghostly arms of the undead.   Did they enter the mounds under their own control?  They surely weren't that hapless, although they were captured by a tree, Aisling reminded herself.

The moving cot seemed to be aiding the small folk.  This really was a whole new bizarre world, or worlds, or whatever it was she was living in.

She approved of the very useful cot.  Perhaps it should go along with the small folk to keep them out of trouble for at least longer than a few moments?

Aisling kept a watch in case anything else started an attack.   She kept her bow in hand.  When she sent it back into shadow, the arrows would go, too, so she was unconcerned with collecting them.  Yes it was a convenient and special magical weapon, but only one who could Shadow Dance could use it, and she was the only one the Queen had who could use it.  That's why she also had her sword and daggers.  They had been made for the First Shadow Dancer, of which she was the Third. 

She wasn't exactly sure what was going on with the burial mounds and the rest of them...  moving metal cot, unconscious small folk, humans, and whatever... at any rate.

The spirits were swooping around, so it was difficult to track them and also make sure the arrow wouldn't hit anything else.   Aisling was VERY practiced with a bow, so she did what she could.

Aisling was actually surprised that the arrow had any affect at all.  She supposed the shadows she danced through were somehow more related to these spirits than the undead riders.

She looked for another target, making sure none of the living were in the line of fire.

"Undead!"  Of course it had to be more undead, in such a place.  Aisling decided she did not care much for this world.

It would probably do as little as when she tried it on the undead rider, but she slid into shadow and pulled her bow and arrows to her.  She fired from the shadows.  That usually wasn't effective upon the world, but with undead or spirits, she wasn't sure what else to try.  Perhaps it would distract them, at the very least.

Aisling noticed the strange, angular thing moving around the mounds.  Oddly, it didn't seem to alarm anyone.

If Aisling was affected by mild changes of temperature, she might have been tempted to shiver at the cool air of the misty downs.  Instead, she very slightly wrinkled her nose in distaste.  More undead.  It was almost like being back in the dark fae realms.

She was not much use against undead, but she could maybe still be of help.  For the moment, she kept an eye and ear out for other threats that might approach the demon, humans, and cat roaming among the earthworks.

Aisling noted Rikerg and the Bard remained with the Tavern as she followed behind the others into the woods.  That was good.  Someone should stay behind, just in case.  And the unlikely pair were actually an interesting match, balancing each other out and making a potent combination.

Aisling followed at a slight distance.  It was easy as the group made enough noise to drown out the sounds of clicking insects and rustling mice.  They also followed an open path that was easy to see even without moonlight. 

Something fairly large had pushed its way through the occasional undergrowth, judging by the broken twigs.  She was no great tracker, but she'd have to be blind to miss that. 

No one seemed that alarmed, from the tone of the voices she could hear.  All in all, it was a rather pleasant night-time stroll, Aisling thought.  It was nice to stretch her legs a little after her brief, but satisfying rest.

Aisling has no trouble following after the group heading into the woods. 

She would prefer to stick to wherever the Demoness is, and hopes that will keep her from being left behind by the Tavern.  She doesn't care so much about the fate of the small folks, but is curious about why these others are interested.  And she might as well be useful, if she can, as she is making the Tavern her temporary home.
