As SeSe climbs up the rocks, she gets a closer look at the monster. The branches are wrapped in vines, wriggling and squirming.

A pair of tentacles descend towards CJ from the branches right above the dying fire. She quickly severs a tentacle with a quick shot. You all hear a deep rumbling from the leaves as it screams in pain. A second round of fire only wounds the other tentacle as it grabs her by the legs. She is lifted off the ground upside down by a few feet.

As Delta leaves the tent, another set of tentacles attempt to reach around her, but she deftly dodges its grasp by ducking back into the tent.

Deftly dodging the tentacles, Delta flies past them to hover in the air. She begins strumming a melody on her lute, as her allies feel slight power surging through them.

CJ tries to aim at the tentacle grappling her for another shot and fires.

A forceful melody fills the air and gives the team a sense of strength flowing though their limbs as Delta strikes up a chord.

In the mean time, CJ twists her body around to aim her firearm at the tentacles lifting her by the legs. The shot misses the mark and instead lodges itself into the rest of the beast above. Drips of yellow ichor falls from above onto the ground. The tentacle pulls him up even higher, about half way off the ground into the trees up top. Another thinner tentacle descends from above grabs a hold of her neck. It isn't strong enough to choke her, but now she is being drawn in even faster.

SeSe gives the writhing creature a deeper look, trying to remember what this creature could be. She doesn't recall any particulars about this beast, but judging by the looks of it, it is likely a plant that waits in the trees, ambushed its prey with tentacles and draw it into the core of vines that comprises of most of the monster, where it is quickly crushed or suffocated to death. Fire would kill it quickly, but in a forest, it would just as likely kill you.

Trying to shout, CJ manages to croak out "Guys! A little help here!" :frage:

Weary, finally realizing that this wasn't the nightmare he had been having, grabs his staff and runs to join the fray. He takes a firm stance close enough to CJ for her to be in range, and he intones, "Oh, My Lady of Graves! Tonight is not her time! Be healed!" A burst of radiant light illuminates the forest and the combatants, originating from the tatoo on Weary's horn. Cj and SeSe feel a warmth come over them as the light caresses them, but the monster does not glow as they do. CJ and SeSe feel their fatigue and wounds fade a little.

SeSe strikes like mad at the tentacles, chopping off those grabbing her with vicious slashes of her gladius and bucking at larger ones with her spiked greaves, tearing deep gashes and spraying its yellow ichor

"Never" she cries in in deep seated anger "Never will I be bound" :frage:

The dark ranger mare looks up and finally spots her foe, with her gentle warm voice replaced with an icy tone of cold fury she declares

"I see you" :crazy:

Sky Stalker spreads her large and magnificent leathery wings from the folds of her armour and charges through the air with vigor in her heart like a breath exhaled from earth, cutting down anything that would stop her advance, ignoring all pain caused by nasty lashes of its tentacles to finally bury her blade to the hilt and hammering all four of her spiked hooves into in the abomination's disgusting body. Yellow ichor is sprayed all over her as the dark mare pushes away into a rapid dive and manages her turn only centimeters from the ground. She readies again for a charge and this time with her hatchet as her trusty blade is still stuck in the abominations body causing it howling anguish.

The monster recoils in pain as the blade embeds itself deeply into the center of the clump of tentacles. It releases CJ, dropping him to the ground. She manages to avoid landing on her head, but instead dislocates one of her fore legs. The creature, feeling that the roles of predator and prey has been reversed, slithers from tree to tree in a bid to escape the deadly leather wing. It leaves a trail of amber as it withdraws from the party.

Delta floats down to the ground, ceasing her strumming. "Well. That takes care of that." She glanced at CJ, and helped the goat up, inspecting the damage.
