Erevan brushes his fingertip across his eyebrow and smoothly transitions that motion into a salute. "Erevan The Silver and Co. will graciously slay this foul monstrosity." Erevan speaks aloud, as he keeps his dominant hand firmly wrapped around the hilt of his sabre. Referring to himself as "The Silver" to affably heckle Escobert since his nickname hails from his hair color.
Finishing the door mending, Smitty looks to Ereven, smirking at his title for the party. "Jobs done, cap', though I don't know if the door would hold up to a battering ram...much less a dragon. Same one we saw circling when we came in?"
The little gnome strokes his chin for a moment then looks to Escobert. "I'm not entirely sure what Mathial is, to be honest, but he does seem to be a divine presence for the good. Maybe not as beautiful as lovely Mishakel, lady of healing, but we do seem to be his emissaries through choice and chance.".
To Nightwine he shrugs, "I suppose next we find a way to run off a dragon. A trap, a weakness, or straight to foolhardy battle?"
Smitty tries to recall if there are any old stories of how best to shoo off a dragon. History 19
Escobert looks at the Party, "He is harassing the upper parapets. His presence is said to be frighting. It appears to be an adult blue dragon. From what we are able to determine, he is only half heatedly attacking up there. He will swing in, breath on us then fly away." He points at a set of stairs that the cultist had come from "Those stairs will take you up to be able to see the monster."

Erevan glances side-to-side among his companions while Escobert mentions the assailant is an adult blue dragon. He tilts his head backward and ponders on his studies of dragons to see if he can recollect anything in particular about adult blue dragons.
History: 11 Trying to recall any information on the lore and their strengths/weaknesses.
Smitty and Erevan is able to remember that normally found in the desert, and that they prey on cravans for loot and herds of animals. They are vain and territorial creatures. They guard their territories against all potential competitors, especially brass dragons. A blue dragon is recognized by its dramatic frilled ears and the massive ridged horn atop its blunt head. Rows of spikes extend back from its nostrils to line its brow, and cluster on its jutting lower jaw. A blue dragon’s scales vary in color from an iridescent azure to a deep indigo, polished to a glossy finish by the desert sands. As the dragon ages, its scales become thicker and harder, and its hide hums and crackles with static electricity. These effects intensify when the dragon is angry or about to attack, giving off an odor of ozone and dusty air. Blue dragons make their lairs in barren places, using their lightning breath and their burrowing ability to carve out crystallized caverns and tunnels beneath the sands. Thunderstorms rage around a legendary blue dragon’s lair, and narrow tubes lined with glassy sand ventilate the lair, all the while avoiding the deadly sinkholes that are the dragon’s first line of defense.
Escobert nods at the party. "I am going back to report to the Governor about the Sally Port. Please make your way up to confront the dragon."
After his recollection, Erevan addresses his companions. "We may be biting off more than we can chew by confronting the dragon. We'll need to utilize all resources to contend it. Night Wine, see what you can learn."Erevan says as Night Wine suggested scouting ahead.
The party moves up the stairs to the rampart at the top of the keep. As they approach the door they hear mean yelling and smell ozone burning in the air. Suddenly a loud roar is heard and the mighty beat of large wings. A crackling sound can suddenly be heard and mean screaming. Through the open door, the party can see the dragon swoop off leaving 2 dead bodys of guards and 3 injured. Guards rush out to drag the wounded to safety and men fill in the ranks of the fallen soldiers. They begin firing arrows and bolts at the dragon, but the weapons seems to not be doing anything to the dragon. The dragon hovers out just beyond the range of their weapons. Erevan remembers that it takes a moment for dragons to recharge their breath attacks and this appears to be what the dragon is doing.
Erevan moves adjacent to the wall, taking half-cover as he peers over to stare at the flying blue dragon. "Now's the time to strike!" Erevan shouts to his companions as the dragon is recharging its breath attack. Erevan holds his sabre firmly in one hand, and will brandish a diamond from his Component Pouch with his other. While flickering his hand around the wall he's taking cover behind, he yells "Orbe chromatique froid!" and before he hurls the diamond, it elongates into an icy sphere. Erevan launches the orb at the blue dragon.
Smitty and Rha'el sit back in shock seeing the large monster flying around outside. Erevan fires off a spell, but it falls short of reaching the monster. Night Wine takes a ready action for when the beast comes in at them again.
The dragon glides around waiting for its breathe to recharge ( recharge check: 1).
It still a few moments before the recharge happens. The turn goes back to the party. The guards continue to fire balista and arrows towards the dragon.
Erevan peers from around the corner to see that his icy Chromatic Orb failed to reach the dragon. "Baise tout." he curses in Elvish under his breath. He flicks his hand down, while twirling his fingers in a precise manner while shouting "Boulon de feu!" which sparks a flame in his hand.
Ready Action: When the dragon gets within 120 feet, Erevan will react by casting Fire Bolt on it.
