The harrowblade pauses for a second as the illusion distracts it, but the shadows fail to gasp onto it. The harrowbeast doesn't even seem aware that anything tried to hold it in place. The spell simply has no effect on the magical beast. Silhouette can sense that the creature cannot be held!"That," came a voice from the shadows near the treeline, "will be more than enough of that." The voice echoed oddly, and a brief flicker of illusion caused something to seem to leap at the massive draconic creature just in time to distract it!
Arcane syllables were uttered, and the light in the grove seemed to dim to twilight levels momentarily. Shadows reached out from where they lay on the ground, cast by tree trunks, and twined around the limbs of the harrowblade to try to hold it in place!
Unlike with Belgeon's shot, the two arrows from the elfbow find the mark. One thumps into its left shoulder while another pierces its right forelimb. The harrowblade roars in anger. It's head whips around towards Yin Hun.This was Yin Hun's first time seeing such a beast, but he recognized a threat when he was one.
"Let's see what you're made of," he muttered. He drew the elfbow, and loosed two arrows at the harrowblade in rapid succession.
The dragon seems to have forgotten Soumral for the moment as it focuses on Yin Hun. Her stab fails to slip between its scales this time, however. It deflects off of the harrowblade's hard scales.Soumral, for the sake of expediency, opts to stab the harrowblade again with her dagger rather than take the time to sheath it and draw his sword.
Thrak's quick counter to the dragon's rush at him slices into scales, flesh, and bone. The dragon roars in extreme pain. It wing attack is more about trying to separate itself from the goliath. The electric shock it gets makes it give out a 'bark-like' yelp.As the second harrowblade emerges and charges, several things happen to it...nearly all of them bad. For one, it gives Thrak an opening...and he's never more focused than when the odds are against him. The giant warrior spins with unexpected speed for someone of his size and bulk, and rams that enormous enchanted sword DEEP into the harrowblade's side, wringing a roar of agony from it. The massive reptile thrashes around to slash at him with its bladed wing...and though it connects, it is seared in the process by electrical feedback that surges from his armor into the offending limb!
Thrak takes another wound, but his grin is just visible under the eye-protector of his helmet. He's enjoying this!
His eye gleam blue again as he summons strange powers, and that color is swept up into his sword as well. It's shining the same color as the sky at noon as he sweeps it around and slashes a broad swath through the second harrowblade...and even as the blade carves a bloody swath through its scales, the cerulean light leeches out around the creature, forming a kind of psionic barrier that threatens to hold its legs still and keep it from moving any further!
The other harrowblade keeps its eyes focused on Yin Hun (with Belgeon right next ot him) and it opens its mouth and breathes a lines of acid towards the two of them.
"Oh damn! Look out!" Belgeon yells. He throws himself out of the way at the last second. The line of acid barely misses the Flaming Fist. Yin Hun only has seconds to react.
The spell dig's into the harrowblade's mind but it manages to sluff off the worst parts of the Silhouette's mental barrage -- but just barely. The harrowblade shakes its head in agony and claws at the ground, but it doesn't fall.Silhouette grimaces at the slip...they'd looked vaguely draconic, but it was hard to tell sometimes. And now a perfectly good monologue was wasted. What a night.
She lifted a hand, collecting swirling violet motes of light that appeared into a small sphere that hovered over her palm.
With a casual flick of her wrist, she sent the spell sizzling at the newcomer harrowblade; the one Thrak had so ably cut into. If he'd weakened it enough, perhaps she could finish it off!
The first two shots find their mark. The first shot penetrates into its chest while the second shot hits its left shoulder. The third shot nearly penetrates its head, the harrowblade's hard armored horn deflects the shot at the last second. It roars at Yin Hun in defiance.Yin Hun reacts too late. He takes the full brunt of the line of acid, impacting onto his chest and spraying all over his limbs. "Nrraargh!" the soldier let out through gritted teeth as he falls back. The burn is indescribable. He falls onto the dirt ground, trying to smother the acid. Getting the pain under control, panting, Yin Hun ignore the exposed flesh and bone. Only one thing was on his mind. Kill the threat.
He tossed the bow to the side, and swung his rifle up, aiming straight at the harrowblade that spat at him. With numerous obscenities in his mind, Yin Hun squeezed the trigger.
Soumral manages to remain in the dragon's blindspot and her dagger finds another opening between several scales. The blade sinks in to the hilt and the dragon groans in agony.Soumral continues her stabbing onslaught on the harrowblade that she's embroiled in melee with doing her best to avoid any attacks that come her way.
The harrowblade manages to shrug off the quick attack from Thrak. The goliath's massive blade only finds armored scales, which causes sparks but no injuries.Thrak twists around, leaving the harrowblade something to remember him by as it moves to attack new prey...
His first attack catches the beast's neck flush. It cuts right through it sending blood and spittle everywhere. The spray drenches Loranys, which causes her to retch.Shayuri said:As much as he'd like to finish the job on it, he's not eager to give the first one a clear shot at his back either. It wasn't just any monster that could give him a beating like it had after all! He focuses his wrath on that one first then, hoping to bring it down!
