Raven took the opportunity to try to use the darkness to hide herself in 
a new location that she had not been before, in order to escape the 
Sunaj's attention (preference being his rear or flank; also, hopefully 
her Chameleon spell is still up). As soon as it brightened up again 
Raven cast Blinding Flash on the Sunaj.

OOC: Using her last sole remaining solitary lone 1 PPE point to do a 10 
ft Blinding Flash spell (remember that Raven has +1 spell strength to 
save vs her spells). After that, Raven will try to flee the scaffolding 
- can she go through the tunnel the Sunaj came from? If not, then it 
will have to be the water. She can't remain in a fight like this and win...
