This dang Trant dude can’t be beat! We beat him with our awesome damage then he freaking…. well… just listen and see. Also, I think Trant should be scared too because we have a huge amount of “tricks” in our “bag” to throw at him. Should be fine?

Story[]

Long Story[]

The villain that was once Trant Thumble has transformed, into a giant dragon. Bahamut. Now towering at 30 ft tall, he continues to do battle against our heroes. Rowan pulls out her Arrows of Dragon Slaying from when they fought Pyre, and goes ham against Baha-Trant. Lahni swings away, as she is wont to do, but backs off after each attack. This allows Trant to do some opportunity attacks, though she's so fast, it doesn't matter. Hoby gets in on the action, doing that thing he does, i.e., like 30 goddam attacks. And Adira's there. She casts Crown of Stars to shoot some stars at the beast. All the while, Ba-Trant-mut is blasting away at them with various breath weapons, and things are not looking good.

Until Skud's turn that is. He first attempts to draw a card from his Deck of Many Things, but the card he draws, (which grants him a fully formed Clone of himself), is deemed too chaotic, and so he doesn't do that. Instead, he uses one of his last 2 Wish spells to heal everyone up to full health! Including Melora! And creates a tiny version of Melora as his Spiritual Weapon.

Things go back and forth for a while, punches, magic, arrows, breath weapons, etc. At one point, Toby gives Hoby a Potion of Growth, which makes him Big Hoby (well, Bigger Hoby). Now, he's able to grapple with Trant-hamut, and pins him to the ground. This sounds sexual, and I assure you, it is...

With Trant prone, it's only a matter of time before he's finished off (no comment), but before then, Skud has to draw another card from his Deck of Many Things! For real this time. It ends up surrounding him in what is essentially a giant hamster ball. Sounds like fun, but not too useful, since Rowan goes next, and slams an arrow right into Trant-Trant-Trant. This ends him, though it's unclear if he is dead, or if he has another form...

Short[]

The battle against Trant the Dragon is a vicious one. Tons of damage is sent in both directions, but Skud is able to full heal everyone! Trant is spitting all kinds of hot fire at them, although it's cold/radiant damage, and so not really hot fire. He's also not talking anymore, so it doesn't work that way either. He does get himself arrowed by Rowan, though, which ends the fight. Though he may be coming back for more...

Trivia[]

  • Skud's Manticore has a +5 to hit, and +10 damage! So, that's pretty cool
  • Trant/Bahamut is about 30 ft tall!
  • When the initial Deck of Many Things was introduced, Bachmann and Michael "corresponded" about it (though famously, Michael admitted to not verrifying the deck's contents). When the new cards were added to the deck, there was no such correspondence
  • The decision is made that Bachmann has 2 additional Wish spells banked up. I believe this is in addition to him knowing the spell Wish, but I'm not sure. I'm also not sure where these banked spells come from. At one point, he had some from a card he drew, but he used those, so I don't know. I'll do more research, and update this later
