Antony summons an Earth Mephit and places it between the party and the creature.
Janivel fires a bunch of arrows at the creature but they miss or ricochet off the creature's hard chitinous plates.

2. Somatic Casting: Electric Arc
3. Verbal Casting: Electric Arc [roll0] Electricity, Reflex 18.

Jayesh attempts to jump out of the way of the acid but the only clear path was directly into the quicksand. The brief hesitation is meet with the burning sensation as the liquid begins to eat into his skin. The monk moves trying to keep the bug from only being able to target one of the group with future attacks. As he moves he throws two more darts at the creature.
