Seeing how tough this beast is and how the Satyrs sword is all but useless, he holds his arrows, looking for a possible target.

Balir takes another swipe at the creature with his trusty axe, but this time it seems like it clanks off a scale.

OOC Thought I had updated this yesterday.  Only looked at it 3x.

Once again the Satyr aims a thrust between the scales and succeeds, burying his rapier deeply in  the beast's torso.

In return the creature snaps at him, but, being blind, it misses the fast moving faun.

Snorri takes a swipe at the creature's flank, and CV leaves partway through the scales, causing steaming blood to jet out.

He puts the bow up and draws his short sword and advances slowly and softly towards the beast [is it still on it's side or standing?]

All of the thrashing about have loosened or ripped some of the restraints. But the beast is still hobbled, although only on three of its 8 legs... it has nearly righted itself.

He takes a careful aimed stab to the creatures vitals, aiming to slip between the scales.

Balir continues swinging at the head/neck area of the giant beast, in an effort to kill it or at least stun it.  He meets with some success, and feels like he penetrated the beast's scales.

OOC Balir has been working on the same area for a few shots now, hoping that over time the scales where he is swinging become compromised.

Aethul's attack might have pierced its lungs or liver, if it could but have pierced the armor (-10+4=-6) to do that. It bleeeds, but barely.

Balir lands a solid hit on it,but still only a little gets through the scales, enough to make it bleed , and leave it rattled. It bites blindly at the air, its lower jaw knocking against the shield.

With its pilot light out, its belly is beginning  to swell with gas...

Perhaps this will end with a bang and we should not be too close! He says as he steps away

Balir continues his assault on the creature's head and neck area.  He seems to be making progress, even if it is slow.  And, while the thing snaps at him, it isn't attacking any of the more easily damaged members of the group.  In other words, he was doing exactly what he should be, as a heavily armored Dwarf.  He was showing them just how superior a good Dwarf was to one of those effeminate elvish fighters.

OOC  Balir's success so far seems to match his level of arrogance, although he would only see it as confidence.

He will again seek to shield Marlena as he guides everyone away safe distance.

Balir momentarily cocks his axe in the air in an effort to acknowledge the comment.  But he does not move.  Instead, he takes another slash at the beast, keeping his shield steady and prepared for whatever might happen.

Marlena m's spell ignites the gas building in the creature's belly, and while it is tolerant of fire damage, it is badly scorched inside, and the damage bypassed its armor. Smoke trickles out of its scales, and flames blasted out of its nostrils and jaw.

He cautiously moves close and stabs with his short sword, standing so whatever squirts out doesn't hit him.

Balir finds himself happy to be next to the creatures neck and not in front of it when it belches.  He comments "Must have had some Dwarven Ale." with a wry sort of humor, before hacking into the creature again.

Aethus buries his sword to the hilt between the scales!

Chunky rips the pick from its eye, and steaming ichor sprays from the socket

Balir'sblade bites into a scale, and the creature swings to snap at him, but he catches its chin on his shield.


The small explosion ignited the spidersilk, which turns immediately to ash. The  rope is now burning.  The beast has not caught on yet that it is no longer hobbled

He works the blade back and forth so that the edges cut it's insides, using the skin & scales as a fulcrum.

Balir is very aware that the creature knows where he is.  And, he is also very aware that others are doing damage.  The serpent was focusing on him, which left the others to safely do their business.  Balir was doing his job, and it was in his humble opinion, glorious.  Songs should be written about his wonderful performance against the worm.

Even while this is going through his mind, however, he still has a job to do.  Balir takes another hack at the creature, careful to keep his shield ready, as he has all along.
