Crushing pain engulfed Doppio's torso. The lizard's ferocious slash had cut effortlessly through the warlock's ashen cloak, only for it to be cushioned and reflected by the nondescript padded leather armour underneath. The strike, however, was delivered with such malice and vigour that it pushed the metal padding deep toward Doppio's left abdomen, bruising it badly.

'OUCH!', cried out Doppio, dropping his composure for a second, then pointing his forefinger at the creature  and wildly bellowing, 'Ooou, you midget tortoise, I'll skin you alive, I'll gouge out your nostrils!' Mad flames suddenly burst out, almost encircling the savage reptile, a lightning reflex the sole reason for its survival. The critter's mind though took several seconds to address this most peculiar situation which left it awkwardly staring at its foe.

((Hellish Rebuke deals 10 damage to the little snow.))

Instead of pushing on his advantage and finishing off the enemy with another incantation, Doppio jumped towards the saurian barehanded, thunder in his eyes, growling mightily.

((The intimidation attempt was unsuccessful))

The warrior, shaken but not in dismay, got back on his feet and tried to pierce its attacker. After such a determined retaliation the warlock concluded that his bluff had failed and chivalrously left the saurian to Grimlea, swiftly limping away 30 feet.

The lizard doesn't seem to be all that intimidated. While Doppio's magic most certainly catches it off-guard and does some damage, it doesn't seem to have been entirely surprised by the display, suggesting that these tribal people likely had powerful (or at least competent) mages of their own. Which means that not only does the intimidation not work, but the saurian now knows that Doppio is a proper threat, and as the spellcaster attempts to run away it redoubles its efforts to bring him down, thrusting with its spear and scoring a grazing hit upon his calf. ((Doppio provoked an opportunity attack and was hit, which dealt 5 more damage.))

Grimlea, growling to herself of the uselessness of proper wizards, pulls out her battle axe and swings her battle axe, cutting down the little lizard in front of her. Grunting, pulling the blade from the creature's neck and letting it fall in front of her with a bit of a splat, the dwarf shuffles her way forward and interposes herself between the armored saurian and Doppio, crouched behind her shield as she arrives. "Right wee lass, keep yerself safe back there, then!" ((Attack with the battle axe (SINCE I DON'T KNOW THE SPELL LIST BETA CHOSE) and move to interpose herself between bigger kobold and the rest of the party, because she is surprisingly tanky))

Following Veritas's running form with his eyes Cedar sees the rest of his group now in the midst of fighting. Huffing to himself, he follows Veritas but at a much slower pace.

((Use full movement to get closer))

Surveying the chaos he notices that Aife is currently facing down three of the tiny creatures herself. And while she looks like she is doing absolutely fine against them, Cedar decides to lend a hand.

Inhaling deeply, he focuses. His magic crackles to life around him, purple arcane energy arcs along his form. His eyes blaze purple, the normal amber colour engulfed in the arcane light. The tattoos along his face begin to glow the same blazing purple, and underneath his clothes a muted purple shines through. The tattoos along his body glowing as well.

((I cast Shatter. 10 foot radius sphere, around Aife and the pygmys she is fighting. Green circle courtesy of Geny. They make a constitution save, need to beat 13. 7 thunder damage, on a fail, or half on a succeed. And because Shatter is an evocation spell I can chose any creature I can see to succeed on the saving throw. So I choose Aife, she automatically succeeds on the saving throw and she takes no damage from the spell.))

Sound erupts in a destructive wave beside Aife, though since this is one of the first real offensive actions that Cedar has seen, his sculpting of the magic causes many of the destructive waves to be sent echoing out into the open wastelands rather than his enemies. But it still does the job, wiping out two of the unarmored lizards, driving another nearly to his knees with blood leaking from his eyes and ears, and doing a little bit of damage to the more elite saurian. ((Two little ones failed, dying instantly, while the last and the armored both made their saves))

Seeing the little creatures fall around her, Aife uses the opportunity to strike the kneeling saurian with her axe. She then steps over his body to directly between the elite and the rest of the squad an swings again.

((attack = 15, damage = 9 then move a step and action surge for a second attack = 17, damage = 9. If the first attack doesn't hit, action surge to attack the same small guy again instead.))

Aife is able to take advantage of the staggering and opening that Cedar's spell presents to her, and her axe reaps a nasty toll. The unarmored lizard goes down in the first swing, knocked from his feet and splayed out along the ground, unmoving and most certainly dead. The second blow manages to cut into the armored saurian's shield, and as it pulls out of that wooden board there is a small weltering of blood that fills the gap that her axe has made in the wooden surface. ((Both attacks hit, the unarmored saurian effectively suffered an explosive death with that much damage, the armored saurian took the blow and is still standing))

It all felt like a blur. Lass'aira almost getting killed, Doppio becoming a pin cushion, Grimlea coming to the rescue, Aife avoiding an impressive amount of attacks but getting surrounded, Cedar catching up and unleashing the noisiest spell imaginable. This may or not draw on us every lizard tribe in the area.

"Aife, duck! Just kidding."

Veritas fires off a bolt at Aife's stil standing enemy.

Veritas' bolt flies true this time, and strikes the saurian in his shoulder, sinking down to the barbed fletching as it punches through leather and scale. The saurian is staggered, but still manages to somehow remain standing, and keeps hold of both shield and spear.

Lass'aira surges northeast, holding down on her hurt side with her free hand. As she stops just a bit away from Aife and the lizard the same one swiftly releases a dart at the Saurian from the side before grabbing securely onto the quarterstaff. She breathes in calmly and steadies herself, focusing, ready to respond to any threat.

Lass'aira's dart finds its mark, its point jabbing into the saurian's neck but still not bringing the tanky little bugger down. But as she moves herself to a flanking position, she also reveals a third group of the lizards, two smaller ones flanking one that appears to be a shaman, and her evasive skills are shortly there after put to the test.

The scaled folk attempt to strike back, the armored lizards attacking those closest to them, only to be easily held off by both Grimlea and Aife. The smaller group reacts to Lass'aira gaining line of sight to them with a barrage of projectiles, the little ones using slings and the shaman launching multiple bolts of fire at the sharen. Because she focused so exclusively on defense, nothing but one of the sling stones manages to hit her, and even that does not leave too much of a mark. ((Little saurians used slings, one hit for 3 damage. The shaman cast Scorching Ray, all of which missed. Patient Defense is pretty good. ))

After seeing how ineffective their attacks were, the surians continue to run away.

Even though the fight had not come to an end yet, Doppio carelessly sat down and began examining his wounds. His abdomen was badly bruised, but right now he couldn't think of anything in his possession to ease the pain and help it heal. Maybe a slab of lizard meat on top of it ought to do the trick?

'What if it is edible?', the warlock suddenly asked to himself.

Blood rushed to his legs. An anxious look formed on his face as his eyes carefully scanned the battlefield. At the view of the retreating saurians, Doppio's crimson cheeks hurriedly escaped to the side, making way for a gigantic grin. Through his teeth, saliva began to drip.

Grimlea continues fending off the attacks of the creature in front of her, and she turns her head to shout, "Oi, Doppio, a little help here?" Before muttering an incantation under her breath and casting the magic out at her assailant.

Almost instantly the lizard becomes perfectly still, almost like it was a life-like statue, and while its eyes move and it continues to breathe, the saurian can only make startled and somewhat frightened crackling noises with its open mouth. ((Grimlea cast Hold Person, and the saurian failed to save against it, meaning it is paralyzed for up to 1 minute, or until it makes a save in the future. Until then, attack rolls have advantage against it and it can't take any actions, movement, bonus actions or reactions, and its ability to talk is moot. You also auto-crit on attacks made against it within 5 feet.))

Seeing that the saurians are falling quickly, Cedar casually struts forward. Repositioning himself to get a better angle on the remaining tiny reptiles.

Inhaling deeply, he focuses the surging magic within him and unleashes it on the two remaining saurians.

((Move forward 30ft. Cast Scorching Ray. The first beam is aimed at the saurian by Aife. The other two are aimed at the saurian by Grimlea. 7, 7, and 8 damage.))

((Edited to fix my stupidity))

The lances of flame strike each saurian hard, blasting past their armor and scorching holes into scaled and feathered hides. The one besides Aife lets out a distressed cry, staggering and almost falling, but managing to catch itself before collapsing fully. The one besides Grimlea lets out strangled yelps, but is unable to move since it is still suspended by the magic wrapped around it. ((The one next to Aife looks near death, the one next to Grimlea is looking pretty beat up))

Once again, Aife uses the opening created by Cedar's flames and brings her battle axe down on the injured saurian. She glances back and seeing that the others seem to have things under control moves in front of Lass'aira, shielding her from anymore potential attacks.

"Stay near me, we're almost through this."

((Attack roll = 16, damage = 10. Protection Fighting style let's me use a reaction to make an attack against an adjacent ally be at disadvantage.))

"Do I spot a defenseless one? Oh yes I do."

Veritas sprints to the immobilized saurian, slashing at his neck with a spin, holding a crossbow trained at the next one as she turns.

Aife's axe strikes true, and this time the saurian isn't able to move its shield in the way. With a wet gurgle, the reborn warrior pulls her weapon from the feathered lizard's throat, and she moves up to stand beside Las'aira as her opponent falls to the ground with one last crackling gasp.

The one that Veritas coup-de-gras can't even blink as her blade decapitates it. Blood flows from the wound, but the magic keeps the saurian together... for now. Grimlea grumbles, "That's going ta be messy when it gets ta move." ((The attack hit. Because it was melee vs a paralyzed target, it was a crit. And the crit dealt a total of 31 damage. The lizard had 19 hp left. It's dead. It's just dead.))

"Would hit them still." She takes her other hand off the staff and puts pressure on the wound at her side. "This needeth attention first."
She leans right at Aife's back and the sound slithers between her teeth: "Doest thou wish a hunt?"
