OOC: Round #2

> "What does killing them have anything to do with Ted."

The creature screams in agony. "They... imprisoned Ted. They... were
in the way. What are they to me? Or to you?"

> [Vesper]
> Vesper watched for what the locals were doing.
> [Vesper]

They are gathering around chanting "Kill it! Kill it! Kill it!" Some
are getting their weapons ready, clearly willing to finish the job
that Vesper and Alex have begun.

[Vesper's Familiar]
Vesper's familiar again uses its TK to drive the spear into the
creature [Strike: 8].
[/Vesper's Familiar]

The monster, with Alex and her blade still driving into it, tries to
dodge [Dodge: 7], but is clearly weakening. When the spearhead makes
contact with the creature's flesh, there is a flash, and the yellowish
flesh surrounding the puncture point turns grey.

The monster, now being wounded simultaneously, goes into a wild
frenzy, its tentacles whipping in all directions [Strike: 8].

Alex is easily able to dodge the tentacles [Dodge: 23].

> [Alex]
> As far as Alex understands, Ted is not that much different than a mutant
> lizard cooked up in a Lone Star lab. She considers them people just like
> she did the dog boys of her former team.
> As such, it makes no sense that killing the demon will kill Ted.
> Besides, how many people has this monster killed.
> Alex takes no pleasure in this and there is a grim set to her visage if
> one can see under her helmet but it does not it stop her. She continues
> attacking. [Strike: 18]
> [/Alex]

Alex goes to drive the knife in deeper, though it needs little enough help.

The creature shifts tactic, and now attempts to fall on to its "side"
(if it exactly has one) to dodge Alex by crushing her [Strike: 18].

Alex is unable to move herself away in time [Dodge: 16], and suddenly
finds herself under several hundred pounds of nasty yellow oozing
monster, her dagger hand pinned at her side.

The spear, however remains embedded in the creature, discoloring more
of its flesh. The creature begins to crawl away towards the wall of
fog, dragging Alex roughly underneath it.

> [Vesper]
> He also wanted to keep Alex safe and so would continue his attacks
> in her defense. He uttered words of magic to call lightning down
> on the demon.
> [/Vesper]

The lightning scorches the creature, producing a burned ammonia smell.
The creature tries to strike at Vesper [Strike: 11], but Vesper dodges
[Dodge: 17].
