    All three of the attacks connect with the troll, and with only one attack routine, Eurus has nearly finished the beast off completely. However though the wounds seem grievous, they begin to slow knit back together before his eyes. Clearly, the two headed variety share the regenerative traits of their single headed kin.

    Araon

    Araon nods to Eurus. "Indeed," he says as he drops the rations he was holding and draws his sword invoking his goddess. "Klintina, guide my sword to victory against these abominations.". It was the first time Araon saw two-headed monsters as these ones, but Klintina Bindar always protects his champions against fear.

    With help of his new boots, he easily gave a step towards the ettin and unleashed a flurry of precise slashes towards the monster's torso.

    Free: Activate Boots of Speed for this round (+1 attack, AC, Reflex, +30 speed and extra attack in full-attack)

    Free: Burn 1 Turn Undead use to activate Divine Might and add +6 bonus to my damage rolls.

    Move: 5-ft step towards the ettin and draw my sword

    Full-round: Full attack vs Ettin, using Power Attack (-2 attack, +2 damage):
    Slash 1 (good-aligned): (1d20+22)[33], damage: (1d8+21)[24]
    Slash 2 (good-aligned): (1d20+22)[42], damage: (1d8+21)[27] (Critical confirm: rolled a 35. Damage: 27+24 = 51)
    Slash 3 (good-aligned): (1d20+17)[19], damage: (1d8+21)[24]
    Slash 4 (good-aligned): (1d20+12)[17], damage: (1d8+21)[24]

    Aftermath: I enter Combat Focus (fast healing 2 and +2 Will) and gain Combat Intuition vs the ettin (+1 attack)

    Araon one ups the display of Eurus, 3 of his attacks connect, and one of them is a critical, and with the attacks, the ettin is finished off completely, dropping to the ground in a mess of gore.

    Daciana notes that Eleth' speaks in the exact dialect as the troll, right down to intonations. That doesn't make her any more or less personable, but it's as if she already had a tongues effect going without casting.

    The troll cringes back from the fire but bares his teeth at Eurus. The dervish gets the feeling that if he pushes it, the fight will break out again.

    The paladin nods slowly. "There are probably more trolls or ettins around," he says as he picks up the dropped rations and put them on his belt pouch. "This one doesn't want to cooperate, but I guess the trolls in their lair would."

    "Er- Uh... Sorry about Grak," he says scratching his head, not sure if the troll can understand Common (the only language Araon knows). "Maybe there are trolls at the camp who know about Gemini and its ettins? After all, there's a reason of why this troll was with Grak..."
