    Servius looks over his shoulder, just to make sure nothing's sneaking up on them. He conjures up a liquid arrow of shimmering acid, magically launching it at the hydra's neck-stumps.

    Ttharg Krixkrux

    With the 'creature' still tearing into Nibum, Ttharg switches tactics towards triaging the ailing Kobold. He briefly holsters his Warhammer and plucks a scale from the Platinum Scarf he is using as a bandana. He crushes it in his claw and whispers "Breath o' life." and then gently blows the debris of the scale over Nibum. The debris of the scale washes over Nibum, sealing up the cuts and bloody wounds he has.

    Nibum continues to furiously defend the others. He calls on minicliffs aid to distract a head enough to land a blow while pteradactool helps guide triceratool in for a slam

    Still sizzling with acid, the hydra attacks Nibum with all four heads, but manages only one glancing blow. Its strength is clearly flagging.

    Spoiler: Summary
    Show
    ACTIONS
    The hydra makes four attacks on Nibum, the first at disadvantage. With a 16, 12, 21, 12, only one hits, doing 6 damage.

    At the end of its turn, the hydra does not regenerate due to the damage from acid arrow. It then takes the additional damage from acid arrow, stopping its regeneration for the upcoming round as well.

    DAMAGE
    Nibum - 52 dmg
    Ttharg - 9 dmg

    Hydra - 134 dmg

    INITIATIVE

    Servius follows up with another fire bolt. This creature is clearly outmatched. What about the one behind it? He shifts, trying to peer past the hydra.

    Nibums getting desperate and his age shows. breathing hard he makes another push to end the battle triceratool pushes pteradactool to fire arrows while he holds down necks to for nibum to chop. Minicliff makes 2 heads bang together and again nibum chops another head and finally the beast falls. (Mini cliff and pteradactool doing help actions just flavored how they did so)

    alright... think we... can find... a way... out now... having trouble getting his breathe (second wind)

    The slain hydra falls heavily to the ground, a tangle of scaly necks and limbs. The illusory wings have faded away entirely.

    For a moment, there is no sign of the winged serpent that was previously in this space. Then, in a flash of teleportation, it returns. Viewed with a more skeptical eye, it has the same general shape and body plan as the winged couatls you saw in the coliseum; the difference -- the resplendent rainbow of scales, the more-pronounced musculature, the faint aura of glory around it--could all be illusions.

    "Blessings upon ye!" it says in a sonorous voice. "You have slain the Tyrant Queen, Mother of Dragons. This world owes you heroes a great debt! Go forth, and proclaim the good news!"

    There is a faint thread of doubt in its voice, as if it knows you aren't going to buy this but it has no other cards to play.


    Nibum, through the goggles you see a flash of enchantment magic from the serpent with its voice, yet the words sound compelling enough to make you wonder. Maybe you did slay Tiamat?

    Servius and Ttharg made the save and are not impressed.

    Servius
    Servius is indeed unimpressed. "No, we haven't. I don't think your illusion is so convincing up close. However, Tiamat might get free if we don't stop someone who is trying to free her. I expect your job is to try to stop that sort of person by providing a fake version of Apophis, just as the hydra was a fake version of her. Are you going to help us actually stop the person trying to free Tiamat, or are you going to hinder us, and thus serve her?"

    The couatl sighs heavily, letting the last remnants of illusion fall away.

    "I'm really not supposed to let anyone through this way. All the other gates have a misdirect to here, it's supposed to be a dead-end. No one is supposed to interfere in the Great Constriction, even with good intentions. It's too delicate of a situation."

    It hesitates, weighing your input. "I can give you passage to the Temple Ecumenical, but you must to swear you won't descend and interfere or allow anyone else to. It is a place where the realms of Tiamat and her five inheritors overlap with the domains of Bahamut, Sardior and Apophis... and these days, that damned upstart Sun King's travelling Court intersects with it, as well."

    "When your business is concluded there, you can ascend from the mouth of the Sunhome Volcano from there and return to mortal concerns. Do you give your word?"

    Ttharg Krixkrux

    Ttharg puts away his Warhammer and Shield. "Our purpose is, an' always has been, to stop Trionyx from interfering in the Great Constriction an' releasing Tiamat upon the world. It be not our place to do battle with Gods, one way o' the other. Our fight is with Trionyx, an' Trionyx only. Wherever he may go in this Temple, we must follow to stop him. We expect he will use the travelling Court to gain access."

    Ttharg half presents, half grips his Amulet of Devotion; a show of making a solemn oath. "I swear before ye an' before Bahamut, we will not interfere with the Great Constriction. An' once Trionyx has been defeated, we will leave the Temple."

    The winged serpent bows sinuously. "Let your yes be yes, and your no be no. So too did Bahamut swear, at the end of the Age of the Sarrukh and the imprisonment of Tiamat." The vial of blessed water glows briefly with your magical oath.

    It pronounces an ancient Primordial word sāmarthyaḥ, and the stones of the far wall reshape themselves, opening a door that was invisible up to now and creating a bridge over the river of magma.

    "This road will lead you through darkness, through the earth and under the earth, and bring you to the Temple Ecumenical in Dis. It is a forbidden place where no one has stood these thousand of years. There are chapels to each of the Five Gods, each with a door of its own, but this door, the door of Apophis, has been kept a secret since the beginning. It will take you to the altar laid down as a pledge by the three great ones, to hold Tiamat fast that she could never again wipe out her children."

    "Go with the blessing of Shekinester, keeper of the door."

    Ttharg bows to Shekinester and begins to walk across the bridge created for them.

    As the group are crossing, Ttharg plucks another scale from the Platinum Scarf and heals Nibum again.
