I know that two of us are pinned, but does that mean we also can't act or attack? By "only they need to make a post for the next turn" does that mean that only they can act?
Your character can absolutely speak if you choose to have them do so, but as far as acting goes, since you are both pinned, you cannot act this turn, hence why I said you both don't need to make a post if you don't want to.

Vale sends his wolf to quickly attack JuJu's attacker in an effort to bring it off, meanwhile he pulls out his sword and does a quick longsword slash at the Werewolf leader in front of him after dodging the swipes.

Turn 7

Aizen struck out once again with his now bloody longsword, going for the smiling cunt of a she-wolf in front of him, and once again, his blade struck true, surprising the wolfess and making her scream out again inhumanly. As Aizen did this, Vale sent his wolf out to attack the burning werewolf pinning the strangely slightly aroused Jude as Vale drew his own sword and slashed diagonally down upon the leader, getting a real good bloody cut on him that make the werewolf leader clutch his arm and howl in sheer frustration. The canine's attack though was futile as the werewolf made a motion to backhand the wolf away, making the wolf dodge to the side. But the effort to pin Jude down was also futile as Azazel coolly finished him off with another smaller fireball, blasting the werewolf clear from Jude and leaving the werewolf a twitching crispy smoking corpse.

The werewolf leader, enraged, took Vale by surprise and threw himself at Vale, knocking him down and grappling him. The wolfess tried to mindlessly slash Aizen's face open, but it just did not seem to be a good day to be a werewolf at all as, whether ultimately by sheer pain or frustration, both of her swipes missed as he dodged away from them. The third werewolf tried to slash down upon Lumpy's neck as he held him to the ground, but Lumpy caught this incoming blow. Unfortunately, he could not block the werewolf's second blow as his claws rammed into Lumpy's stomach. The ape-like man then screamed in pain and animal-like defiance and threw off the third werewolf holding him.

Jude takes 2 HP of fire damage due to the blazing werewolf laying on top of him. Jude now has 18 HP left. Aizen slices the 2nd werewolf with his longsword. The 2nd werewolf now has 16 HP left. Valerius slices the 1st werewolf with his longsword. The 1st werewolf now has 23 HP left. Valerius commands his wolf to attack the 4th werewolf. The wolf rolls a 1 with a d2 and misses. Azazel throws a quick fireball at the 4th werewolf. The 4th werewolf now has 0 HP and has died. Jude is now no longer pinned and takes normal damage. The 1st werewolf rolls a 2 with a d2 and hits Valerius with a pounce. Valerius is now pinned for the next turn and will take double damage from hits. The 2nd werewolf swipes at Aizen but misses both times. The 3rd werewolf swipes at Lumpy, misses once, and hits the second time. Lumpy is now no longer pinned, takes normal damage, and has 12 HP left.

Meanwhile, Hrolf reached the first basement level. It seemed to be a huge barracks mixed in with various living quarters and many storage depots. And just like the ground floors, there were skeletons and frozen corpses everywhere. More chains that gleamed silvery blue wrapped fatally around their victims with some more swords that were the exact same color and luster as the chains laying around or sticking out of other corpses like they were pincushions. Of course, there were other swords of different make laying around as well, but they all seemed to fare far far worse as incredible time passed and the elements wore them down to mere rusted and crumbling hunks of metal. The massive claw marks seemed to not be present at this level, but the blast marks were.

As Hrolf stepped through the first basement level, looking around, he quickly noticed a faint, deep, and very steady hum that seemed to come... From somewhere further down. Probably to a deeper basement level. He was not a novice and he knew that that humming heard from this far away indicated some incredibly potent magic. Of what though, he could not say. Now, Hrolf could look further among this basement level and see if that strange group encountered before had stashed away some clues or treasures, but maybe that was not the best use of his limited time, and it might be better spent elsewhere.

And then... Another alien memory flitted into his mind. Another female voice, different and more full of life than the last.

"How could you do this to us!? You betrayed everything we ever stood for!"

Hrolf is now at point B1.

Frost and fire, old memories (and voices) and new experiences, the feel of ancient time passed and new apparel. All jumbled together in an intricate juxtaposition of dichotomies. Hrolf was more on edge than he'd ever been before, that he could recall. The battle still raged above, the echoes of screams and bones against claws leaving faint tremors in his mind. Prudence and forethought surely delivered this time, yet the clashing themes seemed to call for action, though rushed action just wasn't in his nature. He decides this abode of a domicile just wasn't worth a second glance. He ventures down yet again.

While momentarily pinned Vale thinks to himself first that this could have been avoided if that Aizen fellow kept his sword in check for a bit longer and second about the sheer amount of holes he's gonna poke on the werewolf when he manages to get free.

Jude melees the 3rd werewolf after making a silly joke about the other werewolf being "hot".

Turn 8

Aizen continued his constant deadly barrage as he slashes the wolfess down to the floor, making her clutch her bleeding stomach, and in a barely audible voice, she seemed to whisper, "How... ? Where did we... Go wrong?" But she was soon interrupted with Lumpy's blinding speed as he quickly crossed the distance to the 3rd werewolf to administer an enraged beatdown, grappling with him and smacking the hell out of him with the sounds of breaking bones and blood spurting to the massive steel bricks set into the floor. Jude even made a mocking joke of just how hot that 4th werewolf was as he delivered an also bone-breaking underhanded blow to the back of the grappled 3rd werewolf, though the group of five silently questioned just how much of a joke it actually was, and Azazel was definitely the most silent of all, his gaze only having cold determined violence in it as he prepared another fireball within his hands.

Then, something seemed to pass between the remaining dark-furred werewolves as they paused a little and looked at each other for a split second, and then they threw themselves suddenly into action. The 1st werewolf holding Vale down sunk his teeth into him, and the 2nd and 3rd werewolves also followed, disengaging speedily from their respective fights and crouched down to eat away at Vale, biting deep into him before springing away from him as he finally pushed the 1st werewolf off of his now very bloodied form.

Aizen slices the 2nd werewolf with his longsword. The 2nd werewolf now has 9 HP left. Lumpy melee strikes the 3rd werewolf. 3rd werewolf is now at 20 HP. Jude melee strikes the 3rd werewolf. 3rd werewolf is now at 15 HP. Azazel prepares a fire attack for the next turn. The 1st werewolf bites Vale. Vale now has 14 HP left. The 2nd werewolf bites Vale. Vale is now at 8 HP. The 3rd werewolf bites Vale. Vale is now no longer pinned, takes normal damage, and has 2 HP left.

That deep thrumming began to grow more and more loud and intense as Hrolf proceeded down the winding stairs to the the last basement level. Further, the temperature began to drop further than the already cold temperature it was, and though Hrolf was wearing warm appropriate clothing for the climate, he could still feel a little of that cold managing to seep through his clothes. At the same time though, a hazy deep enthralled confidence began to slowly creep over him just as the cold did. The emotions he had before began to drain away, and what was left was... A determination. A steel resolve as if he knew the past, the present, and most importantly, the future, even though he knew he didn't. Nevertheless, the calm icy feeling began to pervade him. And then, the deeper colder voice of alien memory came gently into his head again.

"Don't worry. You'll always be my sister. I'll always be there for you... "

Hrolf is now at point S3.

"Target the other werewolves!" Azazel thundered, his fireball now large and smoking within his hands, "I'll deal with the leader!"

Vale quickly steps back after breaking free, stumbling a bit because of the pain. He uses dark arrow on the werewolf leader.

"Oh, there was a leader? They all look the same to me."

Jude targets one of the other werewolves, that is not the leader, with melee

Don't forget, you can command your wolf to attack or stun someone as a free action. Sorry if I wasn't clear with that.

Alright let me change that a bit then: Vale quickly steps back after breaking free, stumbling a bit because of the pain. He commands his wolf to stun the werewolf leader while he uses dark arrow on the leader himself.

Hrolf was feeling out of sorts, while yet not. These, what he kept thinking of as, ancient memories consisting of voices alone hinted at being the key of the past, opening the lock of the present, for A future. What kind, he had still to figure out. He didn't want to dawdle in a place somehow colder than the frozen mountain tundra outside, but doing his due diligence, he started surveying the layout of this next floor from the relative safely of the bottom of the stairs.

Turn 9

As the werewolves all sprang away from Vale, Aizen rushed over to help and sliced away at the wolfess again, wanting to be the one to bring her down. She was his to kill. Somehow, the sword sliced her good yet again and she was beginning to come close to death, but the wolfess seemed to accept this all now as fact with a calmness to her. Lumpy rushed over to continue his screeching beatdown of the 3rd werewolf, joining Jude with his own effective fisticuffs. Vale, commanded his wolf to slam into the leader, and this time, the wolf's hit was true, taking down the leader. And soon as that happened, Vale's shadowy arrow and Azazel's fireball hit the leader at mostly the same time, making him snarl in pain and defiance.

As the werewolf leader was occupied was something else, the 2nd werewolf quickly sped over to Jude, swiped his leg out from under him and bit into his shoulder, making Jude scream in pain before rolling away. Right into the 3rd werewolf who also bit into Jude's leg. Jude kicked the 3rd werewolf away though and staggered up to full height again.

Aizen slices the 2nd werewolf with his longsword. The 2nd werewolf now has 2 HP left. Lumpy melee strikes the 3rd werewolf. 3rd werewolf now has 15 HP left. Jude melee strikes the 3rd werewolf. 3rd werewolf now has 10 HP left. Valerius commands his wolf to stun the 1st werewolf. The wolf rolls a 2 with a d2 and hits, stunning the 1st werewolf for this turn. Vale shoots a dark arrow at the 1st werewolf. The arrows does 2 damage, bringing the 1st werewolf to 21 HP, and will do a further 4 damage next turn. Azazel throws a prepared fireball at the 1st werewolf. 1st werewolf is now at 9 HP. The 2nd werewolf bites Jude. Jude is now at 15 HP. The 3rd werewolf bites Jude. Jude is now at 12 HP.

(I looked and looked, but could not find a suitable image for this room, sadly. I'd really like to commission it from an artist later though.)​

Hrolf right away inspected the bottom of the stairway, leading into the very large room at the bottom level, looking for traps. And while he didn't find any, he did notice something else immediately. The room was shielded with a clear light blue shield... That seemed to part somewhat for him so he could enter. That was strange. And what he saw next he was not prepared for. At all. What greeted his sight was a vast room with doorways to the sides leading into other rooms. But in front of him, lifted onto the wall with red flowing magic keeping her suspended with her arms raised out to her sides as if chained to the wall, red hair tumbling down her face, her eyes closed... The sister of the Sorceress. She was here, garbed in dark blue fabric covering her with some parts of the clothes seeming to have small shiny steel plates embedded in the fabric. There were absolutely no injuries upon her.

It was deathly cold in the room, Hrolf knew, even though he strangely also couldn't really feel it now and his body still seemed numb to the cold. It was a strange sensation of knowing but not feeling. The bassy thrumming of the insanely powerful spell was now quite loud, and unlike the other rooms and hallways in the Castle, the corpses and devastation in this room was not even close to being touched ever since the chaos happened. A white mist seemed to coat the floor and cover the dead bodies and burnt corpses piled up everywhere. And in the center of the room, where it seemed the red magic that was suspending the sister of the Sorceress to the wall was coming from, was a beautiful all-steel sword with a large sapphire in the pommel of it rammed straight into the thick blue ice upon the ground. In the back of his mind, it bothered Hrolf a bit that even after all this, he still didn't know the name of the beautiful woman in front of him.

"This place was your home. And now it will be your tomb..."

Very quickly studying the sword, Hrolf immediately recognized the powerful magics within it that were responsible for imprisonment. The spell was an absurdly powerful one that kept any being in a state of suspended animation, locked in their own dream world within their mind until released from the spell. The one problem with it though is that it required the spellcaster to make a magical sacrifice, trading away the power they have gained to imprison any being. If Hrolf was correct that this was an imprisonment spell cast by the Sorceress, then that would mean that the Sorceress that the old group fought over 5 years ago probably only had half of the power she used to have before she imprisoned her sister. Maybe even less. Unfortunately though, as Hrolf studied the sword, he could not think of a way to unbind the spell.

Hrolf is now at point B2. Hrolf rolls a 1 with a d2 and can't think of a way to break the spell holding the sister.

Vale moves in for the kill on the first werewolf with a quick longsword slash while the creature is stunned and under the effects of the dark arrow.

No need for that. He's going to die just from the burning next turn.

Right miscalculated the HP, let me change the target of the attack then.

While the creature is stunned and under the effects of the dark arrow. Vale redirects his attention to the 3rd werewolf and unleashes a quick long sword slash.
