Talas manages to parry the demon's blow, and then cuts into its sword
arm [Dodge: 18, Damage: 12].  The demonic flesh parts, and black blood
spills out.

The demon shouts in pain and attempts to break away and cut at Talas's
abdomen [Strike: 15], and manages to get through [Talas's Dodge: 13].
The sword cuts into Talas's armor [Damage: 18MD].

"And you won't disappoint either, Queller." the K'murd-faka laughs.
"You'll die with a blade that has killed more than one of your kind
drinking your soul!"

Koba's burst goes badly wild, and the dwarves close in on him.

The dwarves curse as Koba flies into the air.  Two of them take out
some very nasty looking crossbows and begin aiming at him.
