So there I was, well not just me, standing at the face of a deep dark cave. Friends around me wondering what could possibly be in this cave. No sound can be heard however, something did feel odd about this cave.
It is the only thing that could be housing the so called “beasts” that have been driving the small critters to invade the crops. There must be something in here!
Camile casts light
“WAIT!!” screams the warrior Sirus.
Of course, you know what happens next, “GRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOWWWWWLLLLLLLLL” and out pops a black bear….
“I hate surprises,” I think to myself as I prepare my mind mentally to bring the divine and arcane spells to the surface of my mind. May the power of Pelor guide my hand to see my friends and I safely through this and if it should be let the grace of his power flow through my veins to heal my friends. The Divine is not the only source of power that can help me through this, Arcane magic is also a weapon of my arsenal that has proven useful many times over.
Well the whole clashing of steel, ringing of shields, yelling, and screaming come next but that is not what concerns me. What is the first spell that comes to mind? SLEEP!!!
Lets put these beasts to the test to see if they can over come my god and the power of my SLEEP spell. “Oh Pelor, these wolves and this bear seem to be causing quite a bit of unnecessary damage to my friends. May I ask for the power to put them to sleep so that we may help them into your grace?”
CRRASHHHH A bear and a wolf fall down asleep…
“Thank you my lord for your help and may my faith never waiver!”
Camile and Jasper go to work quickly with Sirus quickly behind. There was still a wolf up and fighting however, that was the least of our problems. Across the river bank about 40 yards away from us, 4 more wolves had appeared and were about to cross the stream.
Now it was time for some good old ingenuity! Time to show off the Arcane side of things. Color Spray is definitely one of those spells you can not miss. However, I can not get close to these wolves because they might have all sorts of diseases and while I could ask Pelor to lend me the strength to heal these diseases, I do not think it wise to ask all the time. This is where my Lizard, Horace, would come in handy! So I drop Horace into the grass in between me and the wolves with the intent that if 2 of the wolves were to come in range I would let loose my Color Spray.
I stuff my hand into my spell component pouch and prepare the incantation that must be spoken to make sure color spray has its full effect.
Brilliant, Rainbow like colors spring from Horace in the direction of 2 wolves that are very close to Camile.
So, those 2 poor puppies were hit straight on by the brilliant colors. They were blind, stunned and unconscious for a long while because of it. So in conclusion, Color Spray is a bad ass spell!
The rest of the fight was pretty irrelevant.
I stood just an inch taller that day.
