You run in close and let loose a gout of flame. Immediately, it spreads up the creature's arm, engulfing first one hand, then the other. The flames don't stop there. The moat itself catches fire, although these are no ordinary flames; brilliant emerald green tongues of magical flame spread almost instantly across the entirety of the moat, writhing and flickering in oddly beautiful patterns, bathing the scene in vibrant, blinding green. The remains of many of the banners on the castle walls are also consumed, collapsing into nothing. Soon enough, the entire castle is surrounded by dancing viridian flames.
Whatever the moat is filled with, it isn't water.>>720080
You slice downwards on the finger, slicing it into three identical pieces with one blow. They almost look like horrible sushi rolls.>>720081
You nimbly move out of the way of the groping hand. As the green flames Norv lit begin to spread, you thrust your fist into the air, illuminating the landscape with a sudden all-encompassing burst of light from the ring. Anyone caught up with it is left momentarily blinded by the magical burst. For a brief instant, it is as if the night has turned to day.>>720084
The fingers are annoyingly nimble enemies, and you miss your blast of magic narrowly.>>720085
While some of your icy shots miss, two of them hit their mark, throwing the writhing worm-like appendage aside. Its movements slow temporarily. As for the other hand, it is knocked off balance by your blast, the remaining fingers bending backwards horribly in confusion.>>720085>>720084>>720082>>720080>>720078
As Aegis blasts one of the fingers, Violet rushes forward and impales it with one of her blades. Etrigan performs a coup de grace on the wriggling thing, rearing up and stamping it into mush.
The castle is alit in a dazzling display of yellow and green as Norv unwittingly sets the whole moat on fire. The monstrous arms writhe and contort horribly, crashing into each other repeatedly and grasping at thin air before sinking into the flames, an indescribable stench of burning flesh filling the air. There is a moment of silence as you ponder what just happened. Violet looks both awed at the spectacle and disgusted by the unknown monster, while Kairon materializes by Norv's side. "My. That was quite a display,"
she says to whoever may be listening. "What do you suppose that thing was? It seemed quite vile."
