Betty and her dumb cult prepare to cast a large spell.
Her sources tell her that the beast will absorb any damage dealt to it and use that power to grow stronger. If they manage to land a strong enough blow, however, it will be killed, claims one source.
The source is a crystal ball that has the amazing ability to allow her to communicate with faraway people. Isn't magic amazing!?
"What does not make me stronger kills me"
The beast has been slain. We shalln't be seeing it ever again.
30 minutes later, in the same general area:
Johnny: Drink the lava.
Johnny: Obtain some lava for later.
Not sure if you know this, but lava is incredibly hot and quite deadly indeed. Any attempt to consume or store lava would surely kill poor Johnny in an instant! You should be ashamed of yourself and your attempts to kill this lass. Shame on you!
Johnny stop being stupid and rejoin your commander.
Your entire party comes to your side to join you in staring at the thing above you that you're staring at and that the audience is unable to see. We are all wondering what it could be! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it that beast from earlier that we all thought was dead?
It's the last one.
There's a monster in your town. Yeah, you said it, this is your town now. Anyone wants to dispute that, you'll paint the walls with their internal organs.
Anyway, what are you going to do about this monster?
Spade: Adjust your chair to sit more comfortably.
Oh man that was uncomfortable. Now that the chair is oriented in a reasonable way, you are ready to enjoy the carnage. You wonder if it'll be at all one-sided.
