Elquin lunged at the tentacle that held Aeomi aloft. He thrust with his short sword, and drove it deep into the tentacle, till he hit the artery of the thing, which released ferocious squirts of bluish goo. The tentacle thrashed violently, but it no longer had the strength to hold Aeomi in the air, and the maester was dumped unceremoniously down on the ground; landing chest first in the forest moss.

Rune sidestepped, her voice a murmur as she evoked mystical powers. Her hands were briefly surrounded by a blue nimbus, then a bolt of pure light shot at the other tentacle that threatened Aeomi. As a result it winced forcefully, hammering into a nearby lingonberry tree that broke under the tremendous force.
"Hold still, Mistress!", U'Kriel barked, and as Rune maneuvered under the tentacle, Red Fang was thrust forcefully into the thrashing thing. Rune's head was drowned in bluish goo; it was the life force of the tentacled horrors that were attacking them through cracks in the earth.
A second later his other blade bit deep in the tentacle, but an inch from where the first cut had landed; and he was through, the tentacle hacked in twain.
Kuth veered into ursoid form as the tentacle soldified its grip on the hapless shapechanger, twisting from arm to torso and further up to the neck, seeking to choke the life from him (OOC: Damage for that next round)
"Protect the Master!", Caldu screamed and he veered into the shape of a black panther, his claws raking and his fangs biting deep into tentacle flesh.
At the same time Enthri veered into the shape of a giant Boa constrictor, and she coiled herself around the tentacle that squeezed her master, attempting to cut of its strength.
Ronal hacked at the thing with his longsword, then bashed it violently with his round shield.
"Eurydice, you cowardly witch, get back here! Defend the Mistress!", he bellowed as he dodged the tentacle that U'Kriel had just cut off. It landed harmlessly in the moss beside him.
Vitoriel clenched to her staff and projected an aura around her, attempting to keep the constricting tentacle at bay. It had not pierced her shield yet, and she calmly planned her next series of attacks.
"To me, men! Hack off this thing! Release me so I can in turn release my considerable powers!", she barked imperiously at everyone.
From the cavern an ancient monstrosity emerged.
It was a huge, black worm!!
As it burst from the cave, it caused chunks of rock to splinter explosively in every direction.
Aeomi gasped; It's mouth was a giant hole, circled with razor sharp teeth, and in the middle of it all: a purplish tongue, forked and flickering.
"It is a blasphemy! An accursed thing!", Vitoriel screamed. Then seconds later; "Kill it! Kill it!"
The thing inhaled deeply, then exhaled a slow stream of hellish fire; the hungry flames caressing everyone and everything, setting even the trees on fire.
Though they were protected by the mystical shields of both Aeomi and Vitoriel, the searing, ravenous flames still burnt through .
OOC: 1 point of fire damage goes through, burning everyone for 1 damage per body part (total 7 hp damage).
Mundane armor protects from this fire, though robes and the like will increase damage by 1 instead as they catch fire.
