    R7T16: Gelik will continue to use his inspirational wordifying but will seem to be studying the foe very closely, assessing him.

    R7T13: The serpentfolk rolls the flaming ball back towards Gelik. The gnome deftly keeps from getting burned by the ball. However, what Gelik can't stop is the burning of the webs in his area that would have burned Gelik, were Xhanfaerd not taking the 4 fire onto himself. He concentrates on a spell, and puts his hands together, to have a gout of flame wash over Xhanfaerd and Tor-ber, both of whome take 11 fire.

    R7T12: Fronaldo, you double move through the overgrowth above and down the stairs in a double-move to now be flanking the enemy with Xhanfaerd. You don't know what the hell everyone else is talking about, because you just see a charau-ka with blurry features.

    R7T11: The enemy viper nips at Aron, ignoring the winged viper.

    R7T8: Aron ignores the little viper, stepping past it and fighting through the webs to get to Xhanfaerd. She concentrates carefully and then casts a spell on Xhanfaerd to give him 17 healing.

    End Round 7, Begin Round 8 ...

    R8T25:
    Pim, what do you do? You still have the SM6 scroll in hand, and now Aron has finally moved.

    R8T24: Kind of in a combat trance, Xhanfaerd further analyses the creature's moves, trying to chain it again, but completely misses.

    R8T17: Tor-ber misses the enemy with his longspear.

    R8T16: Gelik moves 5' to the south to be closer to his team and continue to inspire them with wordy words of wordness.

    R8T13: The enemy heals 5 without any action. It then directs the flaming sphere to follow Gelik. This time, Gelik is not as quick to avoid the sphere, and he takes 8 mod fire from the burning sphere but no pain from the webs burning in his square. Though Gelik initially feels the burning, the pain is suddenly abated as Xhanfaerd's body shows the pain of the burns and Gelik is unharmed (by that event ... he isn't healed from previous wounds). Xhanfaerd took the 8 fire instead.

    as much from direct contact with the burning webs as super-heated air in his lungs. The enemy seems to concentrate on something, and then his disguise seems to melt away as waves of terrible power emanate from him so that all may see him. "My name is Issilar, and I am a god here!"

    R8T12: Fronaldo, what do you do? You are at the top of the stairs, 25' from the enemy who you can now see clearly in his "natural" form (though there is a blurry effect to him from a magical defense).

    R8T11: The enemy's viper tries to acrobatically slither away from Air Viper and into Aron's square. Air Viper scores a light crit for 3 + 1 electricity. Aron also scores a light crit for 11. Of note, this is the first time the viper has been hurt in combat. It bites at Aron, who dodges with incredible competence.

    R8T8: Aron tries to cast defensively, but fails. She then tries to acrobatically move away from the viper and the serpentfolk, though the enemy does lash out at her with a bite.

    As the scroll reading is completed, the vellum page burns itself into dust indicating that the summoning magic is now cast. Pim will concentrate on the center of the webbed room, one space west of Gelik.
    As the light of the Lillend's summoning shines, Pim conjures a beautiful snake like being with the upper torso and limbs of a woman. Her gracefulness is a direct thematic opposite to the foul snake beings in combat.

    "I bring forth Lillend, the only true serpent worthy of reverence! Lillend, we must capture our enemy dead, or alive; please, help us," Pim cries out in Draconic (the only language he shares with this species).

    Now, Pim activates two face down cards! Two cards from his deck are quickly revealed, which empower his summon Azata.

    With the next few moments, Pim throws his hands up and from his palms are created four small orbs of differently colored lights. The lights bounce up and down in an a-rhythmic pattern around the "web room", creating a disco ball effect. How pretty. Pim grins.

    The creature speaks in her own language, and yet each person that can hear her speak hears the language that most represents their own "native" mother language. "Show that evil to me, summoner. For I am Thadinhel, servant of the spheres, but I have no knowledge that can help me point the way. I can not see into the hearts of the arrayed creatures to know who that enemy is. Be not afraid, step in with me that I may protect you and you may point them out."

    Now, Pim activates two face down cards! Two cards from his deck are quickly revealed, but do not seem to empower the azata at all.

    He then takes out a wand, and tries to dispel the flaming sphere with it. Sure enough, it winks out of existence!

    R9T13: Fronaldo presses his attack, using both daggers to slash at the wily serpent. His mouth continues its assault. “Good thing you wore your red robes, snake!”

    The first attack is a thrust along its jawline for 22, bewildering the enemy. The next attack is a slash along its left leg for 19.

    Pim calls out, "Thadinhel, the gnome..."

    R9T11: The smaller viper uses a power strike to hit the aerial viper for 5, enough that the aerial viper disappears.

    "...speaks truly. Attack ..."

    R9T8: Aron concentrates carefully, casts a spell, and touches Xhanfaerd's ankle to fully heal him.

    "... the serpentfolk!"

    End Round 9, Begin Round 10 ...

    R10T25.1:
    Thadinhel nods to Pim. "Thank you. Goodness comes in many forms, as does evil. I held that creature suspect, but did not truly know."

    She is locked out of closing unless she hovers over everyone, so instead attacks with spells. She concentrates, likely casting something, but if it went off, nothing happens. "It shrugged off my charm spell as if it were of no concern to it," she says .... with concern.

    R10T25: Pim realizes that being totally out of the loop isn't going to help but he doesn't like the idea of not being protected, so unbeknownst to him he puts up a similar defense as the enemy had earlier, casting mirror image on himself for 3 images, having boosted the spell a little with raw arcane power. He then moves into the room under the lights he formed previously.

    R10T24: Xhanfaerd, you are still a bit terrified of this creature, though Fronaldo has been carving it from the other side. What do you do?

    R10T24: Focusing despite the fear, Xhanfaerd tries to hit again, using the flanking provided by his ally, hoping for devastating effects. He slams his earthbreaker into the snakeperson's chest for 22.

    Pim says to the lillend, "Wait for me..."

    R10T16: Gelik continues to inspire his teammates whilst trying to stay out of the way of the hand-to-hand combatants.

    ".... to clear the ..."

    R10T13: The enemy heals 5 and keeps ahold of wand. He looks with a real anguish at both of his enemies, but especially Fronaldo. He spins on the goblin and lets loose with ... not spells ... but a flurry of physical attacks with every bit of its impossible speed. A swift left hand chop to Fronaldo's lower right arm for an amount that should have shattered his arm but Xhanfaerd ends up taking 24 instead. It then sets its right knee into Fronaldo's groin for 23. Using its arm to block Fronaldo from moving his arm, it knees Fronaldo in his left dagger hand for 18. Finally, it bites Fronaldo's left elbow for 13. The goblin feels poison trying to break down his system, but his alchemical training helps fight it off.

    R10T12: Fronaldo, you just got jacked up .... and possibly an unfortunate respect for this snakeperson's speed ... a speed that even with mutagen and extract together you can't ever quite match. What do you do?

    "...area. And then ...."

    R10T11: The viper moves deftly enough into Aron's area to not be targeted by Pim or Aron, but only because the little snake had so many enemies noticing it did it not get past Xhanfaerd's keen eye. The Mwangi half-elf's earthbreaker smaks into the cobbled stone as the viper just squiggles out of the way. It bites at Aron, whose defensive abilites are obscene as she dodges.

    "... close and engage!"

    R10T8: Aron steps away from the viper to where Tor-ber was previously, casting a spell onto Xhanfaerd so that he can glean some insight as needed.

    End Round 10, Begin Round 11 ...

    R11T25.1-24.9:
    Thadinhel delays for a few seconds. Pim steps out of the webbed area and casts a spell, sending an ultrasonic scream the serpentfolk's way, but the enemy appears not to have reacted at all to sonic bombardment. Thadinhel then closes on the enemy, passing underneath the disco ball of lights. She attacks with her oversized longsword, but to her dismay she learns of the incredible reaction speed of this enemy.

    R11T24: Xhanfaerd, you lost your flank buddy, but you are no longer afraid. Also, you have a guidance on you from Aron to use (so please don't "hoard" it). And even though Fronaldo isn't here anymore, his bewildering effect is still confounding its defenses. What do you do?

    With one more methodical hammer strike, the head shining again, Xhanfaerd clearly doesnt intend to extend the fight for much longer.

    R11T24: With one more methodical hammer strike, the head shining again, Xhanfaerd clearly doesnt intend to extend the fight for much longer. His earthbreaker slams into the enemy's chest for 28. Fronaldo isn't to be seen, but Pim seems to be the most wounded and he gets the 8 healing.

    R11T16: Gelik, what do you do? Keep inspiring? Anything else as well?

    "Fronaldo if you can make your way to me, I'll offer healing!"

    R11T13: The enemy is no longer bewildered. It seems to be several seconds since he has auto-healed. It still holds its wand deftly even as it expertly avoids a counter from Xhanfaerd, but not the lillend as her sword just scrapes against its scales. Now, with 5' separation from Xhanfaerd and the cover of the tunnel to protect from the lillend, it takes out a small tube of amber and casts a spell, electricity arcing down the stairs to blast Xhanfaerd and Aron. Xhanfaerd sees the lightning bolt being cast and is able to turn to minimize it so he only takes 13 electricity. His body likewise helps shield Aron who gets lit up, but Xhanfaerd takes on that additional 13 electricity to himself.

    R11T12: Fronaldo, see Gelik's collective speech above. What do you do?

    “Give me a little time and I will be alright.”

    R11T11: The viper tries to slither carefully towards Aron, but it isn't quick enough to avoid Thadinhel from slashing its throat for 22 + bleed. Aron also stabs at it but misses, but so does the viper's counterattack.

    R11T8: Aron levels the playing field a little by casting the same spell on Xhanfaerd as the enemy has on itself (blur), feeling that surely its spells must be getting exhausted, and fearful of a physical attack on the group's protector.

    R12T25:
    Pim, annoyed by the damn viper still on the field taking pot shots but not wanting to gunk up the field with more bodies, invokes ranged spellstrike to brand the viper and pull and toss a line of cards at it. The first card hits for 8 (+1 brand). The next card hits for 7. "Thadinhel, use your best discretion on what must be done to aid us."

    R12T24.9: Thadinhel recovers focus from attacking the viper. She then casts a spell, calling on Desna to aid her and large, compassionate hand touches Xhanfaerd to give him 23 healing.

    R12T24: Xhanfaerd, what do you do? The enemy is 10' from you (5' gap) up the stairs (difficult terrain).

    Stepping closer, Xhanfaerd strikes again, trying to insert doubt into the serpentfolk.

    Move in melee, and initiate Chain of Doubt (+3d6 damage, and will save DC 17 or be nauseated for one round.)

    Aware of the recent lightning event, Gelik will move south to stay in range of his allies so he can keep inspiring them but also try to get where he can possibly get in a strike or two at the foe if needed.

    R12T24: Stepping closer, Xhanfaerd strikes again, trying to insert doubt into the serpentfolk, but his weapon is tossed aside by a deflection field.

    R12T16: Aware of the recent lightning event, Gelik will move south to stay in range of his allies and then lets loose with a sonic scream that misses.

    R12T13: The enemy heals 5 and maintains its hold on the wand. He concentrates carefully, and as yet another wave of terror propagates outwards from him he says, "My name is Issilar, serpentfolk enchanter of the Ancient Empire, and Servant of Ydersius. You are all insects to me! Zsahtlihill, attack the gnome."

    He then tries to acrobatically move up the stairs, but might get caught by Xhanfaerd, depending on ...

    Everyone, roll a Will save vs. an emotion, fear, mind-affecting, necromantic effect. This is NOT an enchantment/ charm/ compulsion/ language-dependent/ sonic ability.
