The team diligently followed the trail through the woods, tracing the path left by the dragged corpse. Evidently, the tracks hinted at the presence of a colossal chimera, a formidable adversary they were determined to confront. As they approached a cavern entrance of significant size, they engaged in a brief but intense debate on their tactics.

Ultimately, the group reached a consensus: Komorebi would cast an invisibility sphere enveloping them, followed by an attempt to mimic the sounds of an aarakocra, hoping to lure out the chimera. Despite Komorebi’s uncertainty about the exact sounds an aarakocra made, the plan moved forward. Upon hearing the sounds, Edonna, shrouded in invisibility, inquired if there was an elephant nearby. The creatures within the cavern were pondering the same question.

To their astonishment, a variety of unusual beings emerged from the cave’s depths: two sky blue draco-wyvern beings, a forest drake, a formidable giant black chimera, and a white chimericore.

Taking advantage of their element of surprise, the team launched into action during the initial round of combat. Neko unleashed a fiery blast with a fireball, Komorebi inspired the group with courage, Jiraiya utilized dirty fighting tactics, Helg provided communal protection from energy, Edonna cast a prayer spell, while Khesen and Hekera embarked on a relentless melee assault. Caught completely off guard, the enemy suffered devastating injuries in a matter of moments. The giant chimera was swiftly dispatched before it could mount a defense. The drakes and draco-wyverns managed to land several hits, but Hekera boldly charged the chimericore. Despite the creature’s fierce resistance with claws, horns, and teeth, it couldn’t deter Hekera’s determined onslaught. After a series of devastating attacks, Edonna delivered the final blow with a voidmote spell.

Even Helg, not one to be left behind, joined the fray. With the advantage of surprise, the party maintained a dominant position throughout the battle. While they did sustain a few minor wounds, they demonstrated their capability to secure victory in the end.

Following the intense battle, the group discovered the lifeless remains of the aarakocra and a substantial mound of treasure. Without hesitation, they collected the gold, jewels, and a selection of magical items, including a valuable dragonbane scepter.
