The battle that followed should never be described in detail, the accounting so horrifically laughable that no-one should endure the tale. Nevertheless, a summary must be made.
The cause of the folly was Ignatius, who decided to go all in with Katiyana and attempted to nude-suicide tackle Sandru off the high platform. Unfortunately, Ignatius forgot about his ring of feather fall and the pair floated to the ground in an inglorious nude-clothed grapple.
Katiyana summoned a Demon of Sithud beside Shalelu ending her barrage of arrows. A large insectile icicle of evil that was nearly invulnerable to all attacks, including the mighty blows of Hirohito.
Traftar reached into his Druid bag of tricks and summoned a troop of Mad Monkeys. It should be said that monkey poo, as sickening as that may sound, turned the tide for the hero’s. The battle was awash with regurgitated monkey excrement, expelled by Katiyana and Demonspawn alike.
Sandru was sent plummeting down the hexagonal elevator. While Ignatius thought it would be an idle time to escape his former friends, and fled downwards of Sandru. The heroic bard punched the runic control panel to begin his triumph ascent, knowing that his mis-strike could have caused his colleagues their lives.
Traftar monkey mayhem was coming to an end, the villainess would soon be blasting them with lighting once again.
Spivey’s late action to send the elevator further upwards was the final strike. The lighting streaming from the crystals and into the storm-lit sky was momentarily sent backwards on its path. Crack-boom! The crystals exploded and chunks of elevator came raining down on the heroes. However, for Katiyana the explosion was fatal. Her magic and life-force entwined intimately with the storm she shattered like the crystals.
Ignatius fled into the storm. The fire-mage-chilli-chef who had loved the ice-queen-demoness, briefly returned to the Caravan to gather his belongings (and some clothing for his frost-bitten extremities) and charged into the snow wailing for lost love that was never meant to be.
