Within the past 2 minutes, we stormed the camp and killed many goblins and some bugbears in the light and darkness. Led by my creations into the cave, we rushed straight to the enemy in the cave and cut them down. The battle has been well fought so far and our resources are surely running low, but we must finish what we started in order to save the townspeople and the remaining children.
I have not been able to tell if the poison has affected the goblins yet, seeing how the gaping wounds could have easily been the cause of unconsciousness. With Malphite telling me which way to attack into the darkness along with using my other senses, I have been an integral part in the success of this attack. Between arrows and dragons, I have been able to kill several goblins and soak up enough attacks to keep our party alive long enough to win the latest battle. Without the dragons on the front line, I believe we would have lost the last battle.
Lai created another illusion that kept several enemies at bay and also disabled a handful of goblins with some sort of new spell. Baulder went to the front lines and fought bravely, almost dying a few times, and cleaving two enemies and killing both in one strike. Amben stayed back, due to an injury most of the time and did what she could from the back of the group when there were openings and even healed someone. Her wolf Kai fought well, but clearly was most interested in protecting Amben. I can relate to Kai, trying to keep its family safe during battle.
Finally, there was Zephyrus. He waded into battle casting a spell that made half of the enemies attack him, after taking too many injuries too fast, he went to the back of the group in relative safety and meditated, gathering strength to continue the battle. And suddenly, he gets up healing our party and throws his axe point blank into Baulder’s shoulder with massive force. He immediately appologized as I focused on creating another dragon with my mouth gaping open almost as wide as Baulder’s shoulder. Luckily, the scythe vanished and appeared back in Zeph’s hand, cleanly exiting Baulder’s torso.
Afterwards, a few goblins appeared with hostages although I could only see one. That did not stop us, we continued fighting and rescued all of the children that we could see. The children must have been shaken, because they stood there watching the fight while in harm’s way. I told them to get back and they scurried away to safety behind our forces. I could feel my limits of creation being pushed further than ever before, but they weren’t depleted yet and I wouldn’t stop until they were, even if that meant being open to future ambush later that day. There are two doors that we know of ahead in the darkness… I see an enemy ahead of me, but he is under my control. I tell the war troll to attack everyone near him and he raises his scythe for the first strike on his unsuspecting ally…
