This big boy is hungry and luckily for him Adventurers are on the menu! Luckily, that is totally fine for our delicious heroes because that just gets them closer to the squishy insides of that big Tarrasque guts. It is risky, but the town of Crossroads must be protected!


Long Story[]

RETCON ALERT: Hoby doesn't have the ability to cast Misty Step. So last episode, when he did that? He didn't do that. Which means he's still in the Tarrasque's mouth.

With that out of the way, the party is still in the midst of their fight against the mighty Tarrasque. Lahni is inside it's belly, but that doesn't stop her from punching it. Then, she and Hoby take some Acid damage, since they are inside it, although I don't know that Hoby should take this damage. He is not in its stomach, he's in it's mouth. Does the Tarrasque have Acid in its mouth? That's a scary thought. Anyway, Uthgar's Blade Barrier is still up, and just as creatures inside the Tarrasque had to take Acid damage, so too does the Tarrasque have to take Blade Barrier damage. Ouch. It chomps up River Grey, and later swallows her, while tail-whipping, clawing, and horning at the others. This thing is bad news bears. Fortunately for our party, our party is capable of doing massive amounts of damage. This is demonstrated by Rowan using Wrath of Nature to turn to very forces of the forest against the creature, Skud using Chain Lightning, and River Grey Warhammering it from the inside. Feeling left out, Uthgar uses his magic to get inside this thing, while Hoby makes things spicey by casting Wall of Fire in it's mouth. This gets it to vomit up everyone but Uthgar, while Toby, still in Dragon Form casts Disintegrate, then uses his Breath Weapon to Cold-ify this thing. While being vommed out, Lahni Legolas's her way down, but instead of arrows, it's her fists! The Tarrasque is looking real rough, and is finally done in by Uthgar's Blade Barrier. It falls to the ground, defeated! We have won!

Adira is very interested in harvesting the Tarrasque's heart, so she can find Bigby. The people who were vomited out are looking gross. River Grey hugs Rowan, which is gross. Uthgar jumps out of the Tarrasque and sends out 700 HP across all of the party!


The party continues to fight the Tarrasque. It swallows River Grey, and Uthgar magics himself into it's stomach. Then, everyone gets vomited up. Eventually, Uthgar's Blade Barrier finishes the creature off. They have won!
