    "Right." Jerid takes to the air, and breathes white-hot lightning at the bone dragon.

    Here we go. First big boy breath weapon. Reflex DC 17. (It shouldn't have changed, since I'm pretty sure I started and finished Jerid long before the backup ****ery.)

    Verin

    Seeing the spectral dragon's ability to breathe Acid, Verin looks around and realizes that while it has (now) Protection from Energy, and without enough time to cover everyone, it casts Mass Conviction, beseeching the God of Thieves to let them escape this journey unscathed.

    The Neogi cleric then pauses, and notes that this spectral creature is likely held together by magic of some kind. It decides to wait to cast Dispel Magic until after the dragon passes overhead, just in case.

    Jerid

    Jerid flies into the air not a moment after Verin blesses them with Conviction. As the dragon soars closer, he unleashes a blast of lightning. Several minor tendrils pulse outwards toward nearby trees and other objects, but as the Dragon surges closer several arcs connect to its metal-bound frame. Jerid feels the surge of energy and watches with satisfaction as the electricity arcs across its body.

    The spectral dragon gives out a shuddering roar and opens its mouth to breath acrid death upon the earthbound creatures, but its spray is jolted away from a better trajectory.

    Dragon takes 51 Lightning damage
    Unleashes (8d6+8)[34] Acid damage below, DC 20 reflex for half (Jerid is not subject to this, but Watt will take Half or No damage)

    The hapless human's Reflex save: (1d20+5)[20]

    Verin's Dispel check: (1d20+9)[15]
    Protection from Energy: 74/108 left


    RUN FOR YOUR LIVES, shrieks the human, dropping the spike he had held. He plunges to the ground and narrowly escapes the worst of the acid. Still, his legs, caught in caustic spray liquify in front of your own eyes; clothes burn away quickly; skin drips off and muscle and tendon beneath quickly sizzle away into think black strands. Watt is far more lucky; he tumbles in the other direction, narrowly avoiding the caustic burns he might have had

    Verin unleashes a Dispel Magic as it feels the searing spray wash over it. A few wires pop and unwind in its passing, but it can't tell whether that is a function of the spell or its huge frame damaged by Jerid's lightning.

    The spectral creature banks, making yet another long and lazy arc in the sky. Its roar temporarily distant, your ears become filled with the agonized screams of the dying human near you.

    As the spectral dragon makes its long pass, Jerid tosses lightning at it again and again. The dragon's advance wavers; it looks like it could fly away and corrects to complete its flight, flapping its wings to get extra speed.

    Meanwhile, Verin takes out the traveling staff and grants you all a Mass Haste. It waits until the Dragon is closer, and a column of fire soars down from the highest reaches of the sky. With blinding speed, it slams into the dragon's body.

    The dragon roars, and as it gets closer you all can see spots on its translucent skin that are burned, fried away, and some metal that has snapped. It levels downwards and looks headed straight towards Jerid. The young blue unleashes its breath and grazes the dragon's wing. The electricity seems to pulse across its frame, and pockets of contained cable and "flesh" burst, spraying caustic acid to in a light sprinkle. As it soars closer, it opens its mouth again and levels a huge gout of acid at Jeridexeles.

    Up close, the dragon is huge, half again as large as Jerid, and a wingspan nearly twice as long. As it nears Jerid, it drops its body and tail to level and flaps its translucent wings in an enormous gale of wind. Still, its momentum carries it forward as it takes an aggressive attack forward.

    Verin's Break Enchantment settles into the Dragon's body, and some magical discharge occurs in the body. However, it doesn't drop. Jerid returns a flurry of attacks against it; With a bite, a powerful slam with his tail and many slashes, more of the dragon's membranous coating peels away, and with it flows more of its acrid membrane. And still the Dragons dance. The larger one tries to pin down Jerid and continue attacking.

    Jerid finds himself in an awkward place: after he finishes his attacks the larger one maneuvers him into a position where he's under its bulk. It wrestles many of Jerid's limbs down, and in the struggle it misses a bite but manages to pummel Jerid with its larger tail.

    Grapple is confusing, and I prefer to avoid it in PbP cause it's so messy, but here's a flowchart. This is a rare occurrence, and as it so happens this dragon does not provoke for initiating (Like Imp. Grapple but without a huge bonus).

    I allow attacks to be made with Light, Natural or Unarmed @ -2 to hit if you're the one being grappled.

    Misty Step is a spell on my list, that I think you and I agreed on. I can't find rules text for it in 3.5 though, so I'm not sure what kind of action it is to cast. Guessing less than standard. Anyway, if that's doable, Jerid will teleport to 30' behind the spectral dragon, and my breff is up, I'mma shoot that at the spectral dragon. Reflex 17 for half.

    The spectral beast snarls as its prey eludes its grasp. It absorbs Jerid's attack and, with a flinch, seems to move slower. Verin's arrows pierces its flesh, causing more gooey acid to pour forth from its body and sizzle the ground below. It begins to pant as if it were out of breath. It moves towards Jerid again, but at a remarkably slower pace. It doesn't even seem to be able to reach Jerid in time.

    Dragon doesn't fly, and moves 15' towards Jerid, just outside of each others' reach.

    Two of the three arrows from Verin's attack hit; again, more fluid leaks from the dragon's body. Wrinkles between the translucent skin and the bone begin to appear in its torso. Heaving, it stumbles forward another five feet and yet it doesn't seem to have the energy to attack.

    The sheer flurry of attacks rain down upon the translucent dragon; after it takes the flurry of attacks from Jerid and Verin, it grumbles, falls over, and gives a massive gurgle. A final arrow from Verin *plinks* into its side, and it doesn't get up. Caustic acid flows from its body and all of the holes made into its odd flesh. The ground sizzles where the acid makes contact and turns black.

    The both of you become aware of yet another winged figure in the distance. It moves rapidly towards you, but doesn't seem to be the lumbering bulk of another dragon.

    As soon as all of you spotted the winged figure, it turns invisible. Verin does, however, recognize the shape as that of a winged centaur.

    Meanwhile, the man--your former would-be assistant captor--chokes out gasping breaths. He seems to have lapsed into an unconscious state.

    Since Tai didn't tell her to divert, Alala continued her course to rejoin the others. Of course, at the speeds she was flying, that meant there wasn't much of a gap between the groups spotting each other and a still invisible Alala touching down nearby.

    "Well, aren't I sorry I missed this one! It's not often you get to fight something so perfectly suited to practicing the snapping of bones on... ah, well. I'll be here if another one turns up, anyway!"

    That she's still invisible at the point of speaking hasn't immediately occurred to Alala...
