A field of lava was no place for some expecting to live to stand. Hopping out of the zone, she made her way towards the center of conflict. Stopping just out of reach of the first dragon, gave the surrounding area a fierce glare. Nothing 'seemed' to change, but the air hung a little heavier. Turning to the dragon beside her, Aile focused on the ground beside it. A dark shadow slowly crept up the dragon restricting it's movements. All seemed well until the shadow tore with the dragon completely unfazed.

"Of course there's actually a dragon. Well, no time to waste, the quicker we kill the dragons the better. Of course, those dread hounds have to go too." Thersys quickly shouted:"Heroes of old! Grant Kin the strength to continue on despite her grieveious wounds! Lend her your vigor!" then get away from the lava as fast as she could, coughing a bit as she came closer to the Dragon and it's Dread Hound accomplice.

She decided use a special technique, that if used successfully, would guide her allies Strikes against the creature. That is assuming she hit. If she had hit it or not would be up for debate later.

The nimbus of flame on Kin's head flared as she lost control over her inner fire. Inhaling the noxious smoke and still reeling from the dragon's bite, she could feel it searing her from the inside, and she knew all too well that until the fight was over, she would not be able to regain control over it.

Instead, she stoked it, allowing the fire inside her to blaze freely, drawing strength she needed from it.

Her sword arced, leaving a fiery trail behind it, but she did not aim for the dragon. She hit the ground, making it bulge as spikes of her magic erupted from underneath the creature, piercing it's scales and immobilizing it. A glowing rune appeared on it's head, binding it further. Immediately, she turned towards the second lizard, lunging to it and striking again, hoping to distract it further from her companions.

Aile seemed to be the first victim of aura of misfortune she emanates as her spell fails to pose any threat to the dragon. Thersys didn't fare much better - her healing chant did renew Kin's strength, but attack that followed ended with bard getting her arm pierced by dread hound's spikes. Kin in the meantime was suffering from fire enveloping her, as well as the poisonous fumes of both dragons - despite this she managed to strike a decent blow against the creature in front of her before charging the other one. Her second attack was also a sucessfull one, but she didn't manage to avoid taking a bite from howler and previous dragon when she moved to engage her second target. At least her fire resistance seemed to slowly come back...

First dragon decided to outwait magical spikes summoned by Kin, and shaking off last effects of psion's attack stretched his clawed paw further and took a swipe at the nearest target - Thersys. First attack hit it's mark, even as Kin invoked another charm he set on the beast and teleported to it trying but failing to get another attack at it, but the other one missed widely and the dragon stumbled back. Hissing the creature spat a pool of lava under Sorasha's feet. In the meantime it's companion moved to engage Varis despite lingering effects of Kin's attack. It's first failed swipe sent the beast stumbling backwards, but with it's monstrous reach it managed to hit the elf with a second one. Not content with just that it tried another attack, but as it missed it's mark, Aile's hex caused the creature to stumble back once again, this time too far away to attack anyone.

I shall be tired of this lava very shortly. "Let's be rid of these minions, and then we can weaken and destroy the greater threat." Sorasha applied herself towards that end, moving one of the minions into range before attacking, and then quickly exiting the now molten area.

Varis grit his teeth and let looses yet another pair of arrows at the dragon he had marked as his quarry, this time using his Two-Fanged Strike.

Sorasha's mental attack hit it's targets... with the exception of the very hound she set into attack's area. In the meantime Varis was busy sending more arrows towards the dragon - both of them hit, one even reached a spot not covered by protective scales, but the creature didn't seem to be too bothered about it yet.

Dread Hound that got moved moments ago by Sorasha snapped his teeth at Kin - genasi narrowly avoided them, only to feel the bite of the other one, who sneaked behind her grab her by one of the arms and yank, sending her stumbling towards the dragon.

Aile's hand was clasped over her mouth to stifle her laughter. Both Dragons nearly fell, a shame they only stumbled but it was a silly sight to see nonetheless. Giving the Dragon the right a callous glance she uttered a long line of profanity at it, insulting everything from it's mother to it's toenail clipping - if it had any. Moving a little closer to the fray she turned, raising her hand towards the dragon. Shadows crept along her body, but her hand instead sparkled for a moment before the sky above the dragon suddenly erupted into a blinding radiance. The creature let out a terrible roar as the light seared it's body.

Thersys decides to mix it up and bravely steps next to the dragon to attempt an attack. It fails, but at least she tried.

Invigorated by Thersys, Kin backed up a little before rapidly turning and hurling her blade towards the distant dragon. The sword cut through air, striking at the creature and instantly returning to Kin's hand.

The radiance summoned by Aile wounded the dragon greatly, but the creature still looked strong. Others had less luck - Thersys' attack missed altogether, while Kin's sword dealt only superficial damage to one of the dragon's legs. Retaliation came from where you least expected it - noxious fumes that surrounded both dragons suddenly got ignited, and most only Thersys and Varis managed to evade the fiery inferno completely. Both beasts were eager to add more damage to that dealt by flames - one took a swipe at Thersys, taking a powerfull hit from Kin due to this, while the other made his way to Aile and took a bite at the warlock despite radiance still searing his body.

Despite the large wound left by the dragon, there did not seem to be any blood. The shadows around Aile, once dispersed, began coalescing around the dagger in her left hand. As soon as the dragon relaxed, she lashed out with her dagger at its forelegs. Reeling from the blow it staggered away.

I am SO tired of that dragon. "Attack the one on the right if you can!" Moving to keep out of range of at least one of the dragons, Sorasha attempts to push her mind into the dragon's, distracting and disorienting it enough for her companions to damage it.

Thankful at evading the burning aura, Varis concentrated all his anger and energy into the dragon and Marked it for Death.

Aile's attack, though dealt through a tiny dagger was met with a large howl of pain, as apparently it struck a spot wekened by one of previous attacks. Seconds later Sorasha's mental blast made the beast leave an opening, which was promptly used by Varis, who sent an arrow with such force that it almost went through the other side.

In the meantime both remaining dreadhounds moved forward and started biting people nearest to them.
